Defence Minister Peter McKay knowingly lied that the bill for the Libya mission was under $50 million when it was actually over $800 million. The good news is this means he is at least aware Canadians are not keen on extravagant military spending. He excused his lie claiming it was a political truth. I wonder if this creative use of language will be considered parliamentary language, The honourable member from Calgary Southwest is stating a political truth when he claims there is no possibility of a bitumen spill from the pipeline..

Republicans wring their hands at the cost of public health care. What matters is how much cheaper it is than private health care. It replaces private health care. It is not an additional expense.
