Oh, Canada...


Surely now he will resign


City Council is reluctant to vote to ask the province to intervene because it might set a precedent for such votes over less dramatic issues e.g. anything else. Barring such a push, the big man seems unlikely to jump of his own accord. After all, it’s his first real job.

Of course, I agree with you that the necessity of ‘saving’ bust banks outweighs economic recovery in the modern political mind, but it is nonetheless depressing.
