Hell freezes over, etc. 

My Daisy colleague Rob shot this. It’s Ben Mulroney and me talking about protecting NAFTA on CTV’s Your Morning. Him, the son of the guy who ushered in free trade, and a ghostly-looking me, the Chrétien guy, defending his father’s greatest legacy. 

Life is full of such ironies.

    1993 federal election: I do recall Mr. Chretien saying he’d “kill” the GST and “rip up” NAFTA. Neither happened. But sometimes you have to do these things to get elected, and it worked for the Liberals, and we got good government for it.

      When hasn’t it worked for the Liberals?
      I find it deliciously ironic that the current Liberal government is fighting tooth and nail to save a piece of legislation a Liberal Party promised they would kill if elected, and, didn’t once they were.
      Just stop telling us your going to do politics differently, differently would be to keep your main election promises.
