ITQ isn’t the only one who forgot all about this ghost of coalition deal-hatching attempts past, is she?

Oh, 2000 election. Such promise for parliamentary chaos you held back when Stockwell Day, Gilles Duceppe and Joe Clark thought that you might sentence Jean Chretien to perilous minoritydom. Thanks to the Globe and Mail archives, at least we’ll always have that draft agreement for “Consensus Leadership for a New Century” — that, and the growing realization that every nearly single official opposition leader (or his advisors) since 2000 has, at one point or another, seriously entertained the idea of being elevated to prime minister through some form of formal coalition government.
