If we ever needed further proof that Canada's "vote for change" was nothing more than a phony choice, that our political system has entered the Looking Glass, and that we've been scammed again, just look at today's cabinet appointments.
David Emerson -- two weeks ago he won election in Vancouver as a Liberal. (The Conservative Party ran third in his riding.) He was a Liberal cabinet minister! Today, he's a Conservative cabinet minister! Clearly no political principles are involved here.
Meanwhile, the two (apparently) leading candidates for the Liberal leadership, now that the prime contenders have bailed out, are Scott Brison and Belinda Stronach. Both former members of the Conservative Party!
How can anyone say that Canadians were offered a real choice? At least as far as the two main parties are concerned, the players are demonstrably interchangeable. As for Canadians' concept of what constitutes change...well...it's quite limited too, isn't it?
