The Prime Minister has announced a short-notice news conference for 6:30 p.m. Ottawa time. At a guess, it’s probably about the glad news of Bob Fowler’s release. At any rate, we complain (well, I do) when he finds reasons to talk to non-Canadian reporters, so I should note he’s coming to talk to us too. At the National Press Theatre, no less. Probably it’ll be televised on the cable nets.
