Come back, Stephane...

...all is forgiven...

Waking up in Montreal to stunning polls showing the NDP is suddenly the first choice of Quebeckers, Michael Ignatieff is campaigning in two urban ridings where not even big-name candidates in the province can assure Liberal wins.

To counter rising interest in the NDP, the Grit Leader points to his star candidates as evidence his party has people who are ready to fill key cabinet roles.

But the mere fact he needs to campaign on behalf of two of his stronger candidates underscores what the polls are saying: Things aren’t looking good for the Liberals in Quebec.

Marc Garneau, Oh please...rolls eyes, he was Canadas first astronaut because of his name, had he been Mark (whatever the hell Gar means in english) water he would have been just another nameless Captain (er excuse me, Lt(N)...) in the Navy.

The Count has a few more tricks up his sleeve -apparently he's planning to rise up on Sunday with the Liberal Party Holiday Special

Wow, the comments are brutal!

And could the count explain just how flying in space in ANY WAY qualifies a person to run Industry Canada, let alone 'with one hand tied behind his back'? No disrespect to M Garneau, but that was one SUPREMELY STUPID comment by the count. Obviously real knowledge - as in practical experience - is considered an impediment by the Liberals.

Good one Rick - ok, I'll bite

Gar is short for garcon (boy)

So he would be known as Waterboy
