It's nothing

The current climate of Canadian politics appears to me thusly:

It is currently possible to take a completely innocuous e-mail correspondence involving Scott Brison, during which there is a single, fairly ambiguous reference to the income trust decision, a decision in which Mr. Brison was not actually involved, and turn it into a scandal worthy of being the sole cause of witholding support for any potential leadership bid.

Honestly, we just went through a couple of years where we let unfounded and baseless allegations against our prime minister and our party cost us an election, by playing the game of the ones making those allegations, instead of standing up and saying, "Prove it." Are we really going to let that keep happening?
