Like February 29, October 15a day to be celebrated

February 29, 1984 Pierre Elliot Trudeau after a long walk in the snow decided to step down as Prime Minister.  For some the only bad part of his decidind to step down on the 29th of February is that it could only be celebrated every four years.

October 15, 2012 Dalton James Patrick McGuinty announced he was stepping down as Premier.  Unike Trudeau's retirement, this one can be celebrated every year.

Good riddance to bad rubbish

You realize this frees him up to run for the federal leadership, and to pose as a man who was summoned from his quiet retirement to serve the greater good of the Canadian public.

I feel a quote from Archie Bunker coming up.

No it passed

And he is not seeking the federal leadership


Would that he seek absolution and come back to the church

I find it is a darn sight easier to be a Catholic when you don't care whether you have the support of the majority of the population.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
