Ok, maybe not really. Maybe we’re just over-exaggerating our effect on the total outcome of the next Presidential election. But right now we’re embroiled in a Canadian Controversy that our PM has vowed to get to the bottom of, come hell or high water! Rah rah! Go Harper! Err…
K, in case you missed it, this is what happened:
A memo was leaked from somewhere in the Canadian federal government that said Sen. Obama was over-exaggerating his determination to remove the US from NAFTA. In fact, the memo said Obama’s claim was mere “political manoeuvring.” Well Ohio doesn’t apparently enjoy freeish trade with Canada, and Sen. Cliton proceeded to win the primary election in that state, a few days after this memo was released.
Now various groups are calling for the resignation or firing of whoever released the memo in the first place. Calling it corruption and scandal etc, etc.
What I want to know is: was this memo even mentioned in the States? Did it seriously have an effect on voters attending Ohio’s primary?
Come on now, we’re only Canadians. It’s not like we can change the world, or anything.
