If history is any indication, someone will have to commit suicide as a result of one of these rulings before anything substantive is done. If there's one constant in government, it is that inertia is supreme. Politicians are hesitant to take any action that popular sentiment doesn't assure them is politically safe, lest they change things for the worse. Only when the outcry reaches the point that votes are at stake will they change.

A solution to such inertia might well be

cartoons will get us out of it

Shane, I agree. I recently obtained the book and just finished reading it. It is a master piece and should be read by all Canadians, especially all politicians. Like many others I knew the situation was bad, but until I read Shakedown I did not know that it is even worse than I had thought.

419, there would definitely be no shortage of material for the cartoonists. If I could draw, then I would have done this myself long ago.
