Better than counting sheep

Had insomnia last night, so I did what I always do when I have trouble falling asleep: watch CPAC.

When I switched it on at about 2:00 AM, International Trade Minister David Emerson was giving a speech about a free trade agreement Canada had just signed with Liechtenstein.

That did the trick.

It may not be interesting, but at least it's good news. David Emerson is starting to look more like an Adam Smith liberal than a Paul Martin Liberal. If only they hadn't felt the need to phase it in over 15 years.

Ha! Ha! That reminds me of a conversation I had with a
member of parliament on the opposition side from New Brunswick. We were talking about something useless when the topic of CPAC came up. I informed him that the audience for Question Period [CPAC] in the maritimes has to be quite small. He said it was quite high. Not sure where he got this info, however, if he's right, it does say one thing about us maritimers, we like our sleep!!!
