Well, the federal election Leader's debate on Thursday evening was in the end a rather disappointing affair. It was essentially a series of thrusts, parries and spins on taxation, housing, immigration, energy, etc...but left out in the entire debate was any fundamental recognition of what I think is a major issue facing the future prosperity of the Canadian economy. Given that trade contribute's 30 percent of our GDP, what is the vision for us to continue making our way in the world? Perhaps a coherent vision is too much to ask of politicians seeking to get re-elected. In any event, I thought the next day was a good time to update the leadership Twitter feeds I have been following - see here and here.
