Who cares about motive?

I have to say it is refreshing to have a T&T columnist writing multiple times per week on economic matters – specifically matters of economic development and the role of government. For years the T&T soft pedalled economic development issues (likely for political reasons). Now. Alec Bruce is addressing relevant issues regularly. Take his column this a.m., for instance, it’s a bit of a satirical look at the throne speech this week and what Bruce concludes was not much substance.

It would have been nice five or six years ago to have this kind of writing coming out of the T&T.

Who really cares about motive? Maybe Hogan is a card carrying Tory and that’s why he now has put more focus on economic matters.

I don’t care. It needs to be in the public space. The T&T has a wide readership.

I say keep it up.

    I’ll keep it up, as long as you do. As I’ve said before, the province needs your perspective.

    Amen to that! DC/AB comics! The dynamic duo of economic development! You guys should really figure out how to join against the forces of complacency, cluttered thinking, laziness. Maybe a new “justice league” of geek power is what we need in this province (other than Shawn Graham and his cohorts).

    Geek power.. I like it!

    While I would agree to having some characteristics of a ‘geek’, I believe the leather-clad and always suave Alec Bruce would be rather offended by inclusion in the geek squad. He doesn’t strike me as a nerd. However, you will recall that Patrick Dempsey (aka the actor on Grey’s Anatomy that has been pronounced the world’s most sexy man) was once the nerd in the film Can’t Buy Me Love. So hope remains eternal that geeks can emerge as, well, as Patrick Dempsey-type sex idols.

    Come to think of it, nah.

    You’re right, I am offended. You are way better looking than Patrick Dempsey.
