Patronage and a journalistic sin

This column is about wilful ignorance, defined as the journalistic sin of putting out of sight and mind facts known or readily knowable because keeping them in sight and in mind would diminish the story.

Redefining the Tory hopes and ideology

Patrick Boyer, the MP for Toronto’s Etobicoke/Lakeshore riding, who announced last week that he would formally declare his candidacy for the Tory leadership on March 18, has about as much chance of winning the race as Ben Johnson. Yet, his candidacy provides the ideal opportunity to ask what conservatism in Canada is really all about, and in which direction it should evolve.
