Whoo boy. Sorry this is late, guys. We recorded this on Friday and Gurney planned to put it together and publish it at once. Then things went bonkers in his hometown and he got sucked into a news vortex. This was recorded before the John Tory affair was reported, so it doesn’t touch on it at all — and that’s just as well, probably. So instead, the health-care deal, more balloons get popped, the CPC vs. the CBC, general media woes, and yet more federal deliverology in action, this time with lives hanging in the balance.
Sorry to be late with this, folks. Just couldn’t be helped. And the dispatch will be published tomorrow — we are adjusting to cover not one but two breaking-news stories that came after we recorded this on Friday.
Nice, calm weekend, eh?
