When in London, Look up Berlin ... and Trudeau!

Great piece by Globe and Mail London correspondent Doug Saunders in this Saturday’s paper (Focus – F3) - sorry, just a partial link: you have to subscribe. It’s all about the influence of one Isaiah Berlin on Bob Rae and Michael Ignatieff. Basically: Negative Liberty versus Positive Liberty. Which comes first? Actually, Liberty versus Equality: which comes first? Or is it Political Liberalism versus Social Democracy? So many questions, so little time!

Whatever your position, it’s a must-read. Read it and answer this question: based on the Saunders piece, which of the two, Rae or Ignatieff, would have Pierre Trudeau voted for? You must keep in mind, of course, that I’m a Dion supporter.

If you can give me the precise quote from Trudeau’s writings, you win … my eternal respect. Sorry, no $$$.

Read on,
Wag on,

Word in the Edmonton Journal today is that Liberal leader hopeful Micheal Ignatief would support the Bush Administration with its illegal war in Iraq. I would hope this is a joke or the media is attempting to confuse the public again. Canadians want a Prime Minister to have the courage to stand up to the criminal Bush Administration rather than jumping into bed with the ongoing campaign of terror against the Iraqi people. The Bush Administration should be brought up to answer for war crimes against humanity. The Canadian Government should be committed to our American friends and neighbours by calling upon the United Nations to open an inquiry into the 911 conspiracy cover-up by the Bush Administration. Prime Minister of Canada should be prepared to protect democracy and our freedoms that are threatened by The Bush Administration and thier barbaric fascism.

scrub . . . Illegal War . . . you are nuts, there were numerous UN resolutions threatening the continuation of the 91 war . . . Clinton, Gore and Allbright said "Iraq was an Imminent Threat".
You are using all the Lib talking points, only problem is most of them are blatent LIES. Get a life . . . were you a fan of Sadim???
The 911 coverup . . . you listen to too much late nite radio . . . like looney Charlie Sheen . . . produce the facts or "SHUT UP"

Who would have Pierre Trudeau voted for?
Pierre liked Stalin, Hitler and numerous other despots like Castro. He was the worst PM Canada has ever had and we are still paying the price today . . .
