Too Bad Governments Don't Topple that Easily Here

One of the drawbacks of living in a foreign country, surrounded by foreigners, is that news of the default country isn’t always easy to come by. I might not have even known that the the government was in trouble had I not happened across a bit of the debate in the Commons on CSPAN over the weekend. I’m so thoroughly out of touch with the political scene that I totally missed the scandal that brought the government down and barely knew who any of the players were. This Harper guy, he looks like a used car salesman from Medicine Hat. paul, is he as bad as he seems? It’s a good thing they’ve got this Internet nowadays. If I had to rely on American print media for political news, I’d never get any further information. Word of the dissolution of Parliament was trumpeted prominently in the San Francisco Chronicle – page A6, below the fold.

Yes, Harper is as bad as he seems. He wants to privitize health care, sell us out to the Americans, etc.

Sadly, that's the way American media is - national/local takes precedence, and it must be a media holiday if we get world coverage. Drives me NUTS.
