Circling the wagons around Iggy
I see that the strategy from the Iggy camp to deal with his latest communications gaffe is to provide a lengthier transcript of the passage in question, tell people it makes complete sense in that context, and refuse to apologize for anything this time around.
Well, that might be all fine and dandy, but the fact of the matter is that anyone raising the spectre of "civil war" following Quebec separation is making themselves the story. It's a politically stupid thing to say. The sooner Team Iggy acknowledges and confronts the problem, the better chance they'll have of correcting it — if they can. Otherwise, expect Stockwell Day Version 2.0 to be coming to a retail location near you.
