Up, up and away …

It’s old, fuel-inefficient, unreliable and prone to unexpected descent.

The plane the Liberals managed to secure at the last minute for this election - in spite of more than two election scares in recent years - has become something of a metaphor for the campaign Dion is running, or less charitably, the party itself.

So, it's serendipitous timing that that particular Boeing 737 (serial number 21928 LN:603) currently sitting in a garage in Montreal should have had it’s maiden flight today … 29 years ago

Showing they can put common courtesy ahead of politics, the New Democrats have offered this birthday card for the plane which first took to the skies this day in 1979 … when Stephane Dion was only 24 years old.
