Trudeau Senate gambit: lotsa fun when you’re in Opposition, not so much when you’re governing (with bonus free cynical update)
But when he’s Prime Minister – as I believe he will be, one day – he’d better get ready for the sort of gridlock and legislative intransigence Obama was decrying in last night’s SOTU. There will be no more Liberal Senators to whip: they’ll be independents, and I guarantee you they will be working hard to live up to their name.
Flashy, short term gain for chronic long term pain. Increasingly, that seems to me (and others) to be how the Trudeau folks do policy.
FREE CYNICAL UPDATE: As a couple smart readers/friends just told me: “Man, that AG audit of Senate expenses must be brutal.”
