Giving the Financial Post its Due
Thereâ€™s no question that the Financial Post, as the National Postâ€™s business section, tilts heavily to the right. However, todayâ€™s letters section (FP15) could almost have been copied and pasted from this blog.
In the first letter, Shalom Schachter responds to the whiny Labour Day op-ed from John Mortimer of LabourWatch.
The third and final letter is a reply to the op-ed discussed by Marc. Peter Varley of the Ontario Chartered Accountants points out that inter-provincial labour mobility mostly already exists for those who are fully qualified and that requiring every province to accept every other provinceâ€™s standards would cause a “race to the bottom.”
As an added bonus, todayâ€™s Andrew Coyne column on Mulroneyâ€™s constitutional misadventures provides another useful antidote to the hand-ringing about Canada not being “a real country.”
