Preston Manning

Bob Edwards --- Local preachers ran him and his Eye Opener newspapers out of Wetaskiwin and, in turn, Strathcona and High River for "expressing contrary opinions, drinking and hootin' and yellin'and generally disturbing' the Gospel". He arrived in Calgary and the paper became The Calgary Eye Opener in 1904

24-Nov-08 From a pulpit in Tuesday's Toronto Globe and Mail, Preston Manning preached to Mr. and Mrs. Canada --- on the evils of polarization (or what the Globe calls "pendulum politics") in Canadian politics. He sung and songed for moderation and civility --- presumably from the Canadian left and centre led by Michael Ignatieff who will eventually replace the Harper government. After Stephen Harper came to power in 2006, he vowed to right what rightists saw as virulent liberalism. Harper deregulated the food industry and its lobbyists and bag-men. He encouraged Bible-Thumpers to lust after Canada's liberal abortion laws -- but he had in hand only a minority government. And Harper and Stockwell Day and former MP Art Hangar tried their best to stuff a stun-gun into the Christmas stocking of every member in good standing of the Kosa Nostra of Kanadian Kops

A year ago Mr. and Mrs. Canada watched bully kops taser Robert Dziekanski to death on T.V. This summer, deregulated, McCain's Foods poisoned 15 Canadian oldsters to death with listeria. Anyway Harper has never really convinced Mr. and Mrs. Canada that his fuzzy neoconism works. When he tried to gain a majority government last month Harper failed. And added injury to insult by losing his biggest asset, Liberal Leader Stephanie Dion -- within days, the Liberals booted Dion and, within weeks, intelligent effective Michael Ignatieff became leader in fact of the Liberal Party --- he will win the next election whenever he feels like bringing down Harper. So Canada's left and center will soon take majority control of the Federal Parliament. This month, Preston's comrades at Bob Jones University and the Southern Baptist Church and Karl Rove couldn't stop Barak Obama. But, after the Bush administration let the fox in New York have his way in the American henhouse --- there was not an egg to be found -- the worst financial debacle since the great depression -- right thinking will not gain power again in the western world for a generation.

Just because the right has gone to extremes (or tried to) doesn't mean the left should follow suit, argues Manning --- two wrongs don't make a right . Manning sounds like he's part of a rear-guard action.

Manning claims American politicians practice pendulum politics more than do Canadian. That is not correct --- the founding fathers built into the U.S. Constitution a system of checks and balances. To get anything done politicians of one party have to persuade politicians of the other --- it pays to cooperate and make deals and be civil to the enemy. Canadian federal and provincial politics is unrestrained by checks and balances. Witness the silliness of Question Period or Rob Anders.

And the worst has always been B.C. politics. A bull-headed premier Gordon Campbell and a deteriorating Vancouver Olympic Games will win Carole James's NDP the provincial election next May. Gradually shop stewarts from the old country are losing control of B.C.'s NDP -- so I have a faint hope, that the moderate Carole James will bring in an Era of Good Feelings in B.C. politics. But a very faint hope.
