Unfortunately, it sounds like Crocodile Dundee.

  1. How do we know that Mr. Howard’s speech writer didn’t plagiarize *his* speech from still another speech writer? Such as a certain former speech writer for Paul Martin? I think Canadians will be more concerned with whether they agree with the content of the speech than with who wrote it. Disagreeing with the substance of the speech is valid. But Stephane Dion’s call for Harper to be expelled from the party over this reminds me that Dion is a university professor who is viewing this as if Harper’s speech was a plagiarized essay that he should get kicked out of school over. But that is not the situation here. Even if Harper’s manner of expressing his ideas was borrowed, the key question in the political arena is whether those borrowed ideas are valid.
