As a proud Canadian, it bothers me that NDP leader Tom Mulcair -- who had no qualms about interfering in previous Ontario by-elections on the side of NDP candidates -- refused to take a side in the Québec election. The NDP dodged a bullet this time -- fortunately! -- but such an irresponsible position should not be rewarded in 2015.

At some point, the NDP has to learn that their filibustering tactics only result in further efforts to limit debate through closure and time allocation measures. The NDP aren't defending democracy by filibustering -- they're filibustering democracy.

I Support Rob Ford: The Man and His Policies

Mitch Wolfe | Posted 03.04.2014 | Canada Politics
Mitch Wolfe

I believe Mayor Rob Ford will be re-elected. Some of you Ford haters, critics and doubters may question my position. Unlike these robo-calling pollsters, my associates and I have actually gone out into the field, into the darkest, deepest Ford Nation. We have talked to real people about Ford.

So they have come up with another cockamamie theory: Ford supporters support Ford's fiscal agenda, but not Ford the man himself. Excuse me while I go all Marshall McLuhan.Ford is both the message and the medium.
