They have to publish one of my web comments in their Morgentaler edition
This was my comment on a recent Maclean’s Health Blog item by Alexandra Shimo, on how sitting down can make you fat:
So THAT’s why federal Liberal MPs are looking a little flabby lately. Not standing up to vote in the commons.
Sorry, couldn’t resist.
My wisecrack (no pun intended) has been republished on page 4 of the July 21st issue of Maclean’s as “Reader Comment of the Week” -- the one with Order of Canada recipient Henry Morgentaler on the cover. Good for me, I guess.
The ironic thing about this is that I myself am sadly a few dress sizes past “flabby.” But I’m sure my former client, the Government House Leader, would appreciate that I was on message vis à vis the Liberals’ habit of sitting down for Canada.
