The Prime Minister's problems over the Atlantic Accord, reveal three basic truths:
1. There's no pleasing Red Tories.
2. The Tories are dreaming in technicolour if they think the "fiscal imbalance" issue is over.
3. Canada is a tough country to govern.
What's getting lost, of course, in all of this debate is whether or not the whole equalization program is a good idea to begin with.
If you ask me, it's just a massive socialist scheme, that like all socialist schemes does more harm than good, but nobody asked me.
