My Take: By Geoff Agombar

The format of a My Take is 150 words – no more, no less – to express an opinion on a different topic each week. This week’s topic was the Liberal-NDP agreement

Politics has a special kind of logic.

So, the Liberals have promised to put more effort into some promises they always make but never keep.

In exchange, the NDP have promised in advance to support confidence votes they would have arm-wrestled piecemeal before supporting in the end, in exchange for a promise to put more effort into those promises that are always made and never kept.

The Conservatives complain the public has been hoodwinked because everyone knew those were promises a majority makes but does not keep, but they sneakily won a minority beholden to compromises to carry through on campaign promises always made but never kept.

And, Trudeau will call an election if he reads a majority in the tea leaves, Singh will vote No Confidence if Trudeau betrays confidence, and Mulroney remains the last prime minister to trounce the “Did Not Vote” party.
