The Premise underlying most of my Future Postings

Canada hasn't had any prime ministers in the last 50 years with any level of vision or sophistication other than Lester B. Pearson and Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Here's a Trudeau quote that's worth keeping in mind and that'll explain the basis for much of what I'm going to be saying in future postings -

"We are going to be governed whether we like it or not: it is up to us to see to it that we are governed no worse than is absolutely necessary. We must therefore concern ourselves with politics, as Pascal said, to mitigate as far as possible the damage done by the madness of our rulers."
