Sometimes events happen that seem negative but can be made into a good. The NDP (Not Disposed to Produce) lost the election. Gentleman politician and NDP leader Mr. Dix should be very grateful. His party wasn’t ready. His orange Halloween tie said it all. The “change” message was masked. Would the voter get a trick or a treat in it’s unknown policies?
The NDP is excellent in opposition and should remain so until it changes its philosophy and brings its platform into the 21st century, as England’s former Labour leader Tony Blair did. Then change its weird name.
Now about the Canadian Senate circus. Be happy it happened. It may incense the Canadian docile people to finally eliminate the Senate, with the savings being dispersed among the downtrodden and seniors. The Senate Chamber, which has withstood decades of mysterious vibrations recently found to be caused by snoring when the Senate was in session, is sound and could become a hostel for the young visiting their capital, Ottawa.
