The president of the Liberal Party of Canada has sent out a memo explaining that the Parliamentary press gallery and its outport operations in Toronto and Montreal don’t have a clue what’s going on. You have to admit the argument has a certain surface plausibility.
Anyway, here’s an account of Alf Apps’s memo, with the memo itself embedded in full. Frankly I found the memo more useful than the accompanying story, but no matter. Good on Public Eye for getting this memo and posting it. I have analysis of my own, but I’ll refrain from contaminating your consideration of Apps’s arguments.
Open discussion in the comments — ideally more polite, each commenter toward the others, than some of our comment-board discussion has been lately.
