Hey look: Ignatieff hugs the new centre

From the latest (actually unusually good in many ways) print edition, my column about shrinking policy ambition and its uses. It features a wee error: I say Ignatieff “voted against” a Bloc bill on EI reform. In fact he scrummed against it but missed the vote, at which 40 Liberal MPs voted in favour of a bill the Liberal leader said was “dead on arrival.” The absence of the 30-odd others was enough to ensure the bill’s defeat.

Anyway, that’s not really what the column’s about, so, um, enjoy.
