When I was I shit-disturbing Young Liberal – before I became a shit-disturbing Old Liberal – I was on the Carleton U. Grit club executive. I decided to stir things up by inviting every Liberal and liberal I could think of to come and speak.
So I called up Jim Coutts, then the primus inter pares in Trudeau’s PMO, and asked him to come. He said okay.
Apparently, that was a big deal. Liberals told me he had never, ever agreed to something like that before.
So, when he showed up, I went to greet him. “Why’d you come?” I asked him.
“Because you asked me, that’s why,” said he.
