God Save McQueen

This may be a complete fabrication, but a little bird told me that there was a tough, soul-searching meeting at Stornaway yesterday, where the big Liberal brass told Backpack Boy to pack his bags.

The problem, you see, is money. With him as leader, the Puffin Party is dead in the water in terms of fundraising.

Now as you know, I don't believe any of this. And I have great respect for the Leader of Her Majesty's Official Opposition (see Her Majesty, top right), and I would love him to stay, but times are tough around the world (see Her Majesty, top right), and with the loss in votes in the last election, the Puffins are taking a $1.6 million hit from Elections Canada.

Thanks Jean Chr├ętien/Merci au petit gars de Shawinigan.

More as this develops.
