Juicy tidbits for a Monday

– If the story mentioned at this site in Nova Scotia and referenced to by Warren and a few others this morning is true, and the Halifax Chronicle Herald wins the right to publicize whatever is on this alleged tape, Lisa Raitt will not survive this. Keep an eye on the national broadcasters and/or the Chronicle Herald’s site today (as well as the Nova Scotia site).

– When it isn’t tapes causing Harper and the Conservatives trouble, or lost binders on nuclear isotopes, it’s brown paper envelopes getting sent to newspapers such as Le Devoir detailing how Canada would try to privately undermine the Bali environmental agreement that it didn’t […]


Blogging from Bali – Stephane Dion.

Jason was hinting at his blog earlier that there would be some big news, and indeed there is:

Stéphane Dion is blogging from Bali… My expectation is that Mr. Dion will write clearly about what he is seeing on the ground and how his meetings are going.

Mr. Dion’s blog can be found here. I decided to take a peek at his site, and he’s been very busy with 4 blog entries already on his first day of blogging. Those include describing his arrival in Bali, his speech to municipal and city leaders, his meeting with Yvo De Boer (the UN’s climate change Secretary), and commenting on all the Fossil Awards Canada is receiving in Bali.

It’ll be interesting to see if he will keep the blogging pace up, but regardless, it will be an inside view of the conference from his perspective. I particularly look forward to the blogging he does after the panel he and Mr Baird are supposed to be on together on the 13th is completed and the anticipated fireworks some are expecting to happen occurs (presuming Mr Baird doesn’t chicken out on it, like he did with the government-sponsored event that as mentioned earlier, caused the Canadian youth delegation to leave in protest.)
