At least Michael Ignatieff moved back here. You know what I mean, Mr. Disembark Tank. You're Just Leaving. As expected. As planned. As such, I was going to wish you the best in packing for the return to Boston -- but we both you know you never really unpacked, did you?

Projecting Economic Competence Never Was B.C. NDP's Strong Suit

In election after election, the B.C. NDP either get their projections wrong - or they abandon their economic promises, mid-writ. Either way, it does not engender confidence.
