Flip-flop alert update.

Well it took about 24 hours longer than I expected, but the Canadian Forces has relented and agreed to take the 1,700 care packages to the troops in Afghanistan after all. Today, CBC radio reports that the packages will depart the Port of Montreal within the next few days, and be delivered to the men and women serving in Afghanistan by the end of January.

But how about this for a suggestion? Since these will be much better received than another visit by Harper or Junior MacKay for a photo-op, use a plane to get the gift boxes there by Christmas and offset the cost by sending the next batch of MPs by boat.
