I returned from overseas at the end of March, hit the ground running with a profile of Stéphane Dion and have not paused for long since then. So one of the dilemmas this election campaign posed was whether I should cancel a brief vacation I had planned for some months. It was easy to decide against cancelling, because I know Maclean’s election coverage, led by John Geddes and Andrew Coyne, and our bustling family of blogs will thrive while I’m away. Not knowing how to cut bait, I am off fishing for a week. See you after Sept. 26.
