Great line of the day 

Nova Scotia journalist Ralph Surette, writing about the Harper government's refusal to support a ban on bottom-trawling fishing:
. . . There's something increasingly rodent-like about this government. It comes out in the darkness to gnaw at healthy tissue — adult literacy, the EnerGuide program, the Community Access Program, and much else that it has insidiously cut — then scurries out of sight when faced with the light of day. Having decided to stick it out in Afghanistan amid much bravado, it cuts and runs on everything else — environmental policy, the AIDS conference no-show, and now this.
Emphasis mine.
