I guess the standards of what makes good op-ed fodder is not much different in Moncton than in Edmonton. Apparently, Lorne Gunter, senior columnist at the Edmonton Journal, thinks that his role in life is to crap on Atlantic Canadians. I usually skip over his “columns” but when I glanced and saw that his new line of thinking is that Newfoundlanders are no different than the Lebanese and their Canadian ‘passports of convenience’, I was curious and read the whole piece.
I’ll let you read it. It shows the depth of analysis coming out of Alberta these days.
