  A Confederacy of Procedural Wonks
Interesting piece in the Globe this morning on the trio of procedural strategists working to alternatively prop-up/bring down the Libs.

Particularly interesting is the story of 40-year veteran Jerry Yanover. Single, baseball-loving and the proud owner of a Norwich Terrier named Blues, Yanover is the resident expert on all things boring. As he should be...he's been doing under 12 different Liberal house leaders.

Fascinating how the health of the political system is reflected by those in prominent positions. A vibrant, solution-oriented parliament is helmed by visionary leaders, while a fractous morass of naked ambition chooses a procedural guru as its champion.

Good times.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
