The Shafia case is similar to the case of Dr. Guy Turcotte

The jury's verdict in the case Shafia was delivered in a day and a half of deliberations.
One can make a direct comparison with the cause of Dr. Guy Turcotte. In both cases, we attended the murders of young children. Unfortunately, the guilty verdict was not decided in the case of Dr. Turcotte, even if the evidence of the killings were far more obvious and inevitable.
Conclusion: Shafia might have been better to plead insanity ... (Joke)

The art of politics according to U.S. President Barack Obama and his State of the Union Address

Politics is the art of seduction and to persuade others to accept the proposed ideas even if they are not proven to be the solution.
Barack Obama has the art of seduction and it is increasingly clear that it is superior to the Republican candidates whose main weakness is not to have unity among themselves. The worst enemy of the Republicans are Republicans together ...
The address to the nation is a motivational speech and, if not the absolute truth, it remains the best option when faced with economic and social problems as the American people, and even for other G-20's countries..

The end of Gilles Duceppe is a reprieve of the death penalty for Pauline Marois but the Parti Québécois is still threatened with death...

The announcement by Gilles Duceppe of his no return to active politics after the unveiling of a financing scandal in his former party is a joy for Stephen Harper and especially a reprieve of the death sentence for Pauline Marois.
It is obvious that the leak of information on the Bloc funding is the work of his political enemies and we can name three: Stephen Harper, Pauline Marois and ultimately Jean Charest.
By eliminating Gilles Duceppe, Stephen Harper ensure himself some sort of security against Quebec separatists and Jean Charest is virtually assured of the Liberal reelection because there is no one left to take over the PQ leader job who is politically moribund. To be continued ...

Newt Gingrich wins the Republican vote in South Carolina ...

The Republican candidate Newt Gingrich won the vote in South Carolina in front of the favored candidate Mitt Romney, but the fight is still very tight between the four candidates for the position of presidential candidate. This division between Republicans wanting to become party leader is welcome by President Barack Obama as this lack of unity makes it easier for Democrats in their efforts to prepare for the upcoming U.S. election of November 6, 2012.

The future of politics in Quebec from Pauline Marois to Jean Charest...

The political future of Quebec seems to be dedicated to the continuity with the current Prime Minister Jean Charest.
Despite his hard work, actual PQ leader Pauline Marois failed to win the favor from the public and one wonders how far she will continue to remain chief...
While the rumor that Gilles Duceppe will take over from Pauline Marois, several other observers wonder that in order to remove the current prime minister if the solution would rather be a merger between the new party of François Legault and the Parti Québécois, but "There's many a slip twixt cup and lip" before the realisation of this dream...
Stay tuned! /

The tragedy of the cruise ship COSTA CONCORDIA is also a real comedy ...

The story of the sinking of the cruise ship Costa Concordia is a sad and terrible tragedy but it is also a real comedy worthy of the best films of cinema funnier than Tintin and Haddock.
Imagine a captain in order to show its influence to the Kitchen Chef who decided to pass in front of the house of the Chef's parents and tell them hello with the horn of a giant ship. And now the giant boat hit rocks and began to sway on its side! The more funny thing is, however, when the Police officer ordered the captain, who flees to the mainland, back on his boat. The captain in his life boat says he can not jump because the big ship is sinking ...
This event is "very dramatic" but also a ridiculous laugh.

What if Thomas Mulcair became NDP leader and if the female stars influenced the next Canadian election campaign?

What if Thomas Mulcair became NDP leader and then merged it with the Liberal Party? But what if the leading women also took a active role in the next election? Then all the possibilities will be on the table and the outcome unpredictable especially with the NDP who could place at the forefront Ruth Ellen Brosseau.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper's re-election plan will then be complicated but the Conservative Party would probably call to the front the new wife of Peter MacKay, Nazanin Afshin-Jam.
The bets are open ...
