Where have you gone John Turner?

Adam Radwanski wonders why no one’s asking questions about free trade with Europe.

The fact that yesterday’s Question Period yielded nary a single question on this matter, on the day that the Prime Minister was meeting with European officials in Prague to discuss it, is rather telling of the ability of that forum to shed light on the government’s activity.

Granted, the answers would probably all have come back to the scurrilous Liberals’ dastardly plans to raise taxes. But if opposition politicians felt no compulsion to at least attempt to find out what the government is aiming for and how it’s progressing, I’m really not sure why they bother going to work each day.
