Letter To Charlie Angus

He call'd so loud, that all the hollow Deep
Of Hell resounded.
John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book I, Lines 314-315

Dear Charlie:

Only in Canada; one day your rocking and then the next day your talking, in the House of Commons! The Oracle of Ottawa thought he lead an "interesting" life, but I got nothing on you Charlie. I hoped you got some time to relax on the mid fall break.Ya, I know, fat chance on that...

 The real reason I'm writing, is about that committee meeting I watched on CPAC. Wherein a certain big, bad, Canadian press lord want'a be graced you with his presence. Between you and me Charlie I have never seen anything so utterly crazy in recent times. And the way you and the young lads dismantled him was wonderous to behold. That part where you reminded him that he received  an amount not un-adjacent to 600 million dollars of subsidy from the Canadian tax payer was really funny. But you missed the fact that could have really rocked the whole appearance even more!

And that was the little known fact of the two tier share structure. You see if you look up the stock symbol of the said press lords company as publicly traded, you will discover that there is the .A stock and then there is the .B stock. Now usually the A stock contains all the votes or voting power. The B stock is essentially for the "chumps" i.e. the Caissse de Depot. Who do yo think owns the A stock? You guys in the NDP have got to start learning about this sneaky stuff. You should bring in some disaffected young corporate security lawyers to help you out. But there will be another day to bring this up I am sure. And it is a great comfort to the Oracle of Ottawa that you will be there to look out for the best interests of all Canadians.

                                                                                                       All the best;
                                                                                              The Oracle of Ottawa
