Jean Chretien Shows Some Balls


God I have missed Jean Chretien, now I am not a Liberal, nor do I really believe much of anything he might say, but his fiery spunk always makes me smile. So Gomery in his primilary report exonerated Paul Martin, but placed blame for AdScam squarely on the shoulders of Jean Chretien.......... well the former PM responded by coming out swinging. His openning statement was something like, as the Prime Minister at the time, I take responsibility for anything bad or good that happened, he said that he feels angry about the corruption that stemmed from the Sponsorship Program, but felt that the program in itself was a good one that played an important role during the referendum of 10 years ago. Chretien believes that his former chief of staff Pelletier should be exonerated, and that the blame for the whole mess should be placed on Chuck Guite. With advise from his lawyer he has decided to challenge the findings of commission on the basis of evidentry bias. He spit fire at Gomery, saying that Gomery is to closely tied to Mulroney and his lawyers, and that any witnesses that may have represented Chretien in a positive light were mysteriously omitted. My favorite part of his whole press conference had to be when questioned about how he felt about the 10 people that were kicked out of the Liberal party, responding that he didn't realize he had that power, and if he had....bas la, or vraiment, couldn't really here his response over the damned tranlator, but his whatya think I would do expression, was obviously directed at Paul Martin... it was a thing of beauty.
So again this whole thing could be all a charade from a crotchity old man trying to save his legacy, or further evidence of the Chretien Martin fued blown over, or Chretien Vs Mulroney, whatever it is I can't get enough of it. The Little Guy From Shawinagan is pure entertainment something that has been missing on the Canadian political scene since he left.

Dear Sir, now that Mr Harper has achieved his "crowning" moment, will he scorn Atlantic Canadians for not buying into his platform..an already Rich Albertan will no doubt love to make the West even stronger.of course the West for many years was passed over by the past few liberal governments.As many of our eager move to alberta for the 50,000 starting labour jobs. what can we expect from Mr harper and the Tories.. or will a minority government be just the thing to harness the Beast?
