One day during all this unpleasantness, I sat down to have lunch with Flora MacDonald and seek her counsel.
“Why do your people hate the CBC so much?” I asked.
“My people?” she replied.
“Yes. Your people, your party, the Conservative Party.”
“They are not my people. They are a different party from the one I was in.”
“But you must have some insight into why they hate the CBC so much.”
“Oh, Richard,” she laughed. “Don’t think that you’re special. They hate everything.”
“Yes, everything. That’s what they do. They are haters.”
