Working in Montréal today --It is our government!

New week, same place, different meetings.

I was reading the Globe and Mail this morning and read an article about an RCMP probe into allegations of interference by a member of 'The Harper Government' in an access to information request.

I have become sensitized to this inappropriate term or renaming of our federal government in so much as I notice extremely often in print and the spoken word by news agencies.

It is the Canadian Government, our government, not Harper's.  Moreover, we have a minority government (my personal favorite type), so this current sitting government is as much a Stéphane Dion, Gilles Duceppe or a Jack Layton formed government as it is a Harper formed government.

Okay, plane has landed and at gate.
