The news story on the bloated Harper cabinet's attachment to limousine comforts might well be remembered as the trigger that ignited the coming revolution. This could well be the first such convulsion in history with numerous seniors at the barricades, symbolically speaking. Well, I would be one to join them.
This is the government that is so committed to trimming government, and the services so many of us poorer types depend on, while it is one that indulges itself in excesses like stays at the Savoy and limos waiting at the curb.
I suggest that many of Mr. Harper’s more portly ministers might forego Ottawa's fine dining establishments in order to spend more time on Stairmasters at the gym. So they might have a bit of spring in their steps on their way up to the poised and gleaming blade — again rhetorically speaking.
