two things for a rainy day

Pouring rain here in la belle province, though I note that the squeegee kids at Parc and Mt. Royal are still at work. So, if you don’t really have a job or are bored at the one you have, two things to while away the day:
1. Pick up the National Post and read all about health care reform. Regardless of how you feel about the paper and its ideology, it is spending five solid days looking at health care in this country in a reasonably balanced way. Just more evidence of how that paper continues to be a far more interesting read than the Front Street Bore.
2. Read Gordon Gibson’s report on Senate Reform, from the Fraser Institute. I’ve only skimmed it so far, but it looks quite interesting, if only for the bias Gibson brings to his analysis: However we decide to reform the Senate, it must not result in a strengthening of the federal government’s legitimacy. Isn’t that nuts?
