And the exercise-challenged MP
A) Once a day? B) Once a decade?????
When the Canadian Medical Association was visiting the Hill, many MPs were given a health evaluation. “Do you exercise once a day?” Montreal Liberal MP Irwin Cotler was asked. “No,” he replied. “Once a week?” Again, he replied no. When the questioner got to once a month, the champion for human rights who has served as counsel for such former political prisoners as Nelson Mandela explained he just doesn’t have time for exercise. Cape Breton Liberal MP Mark Eyking noted many MPs, including him, were given pedometers to measure how much they walked in a day. How effective they’ll be remains to be seen. Eyking demonstrated for Capital Diary that just by shaking the machine a little, the number goes up.

A Liberal group called “The League of Former Hill Staffers” recently organized a “take back D’arcy McGee’s night.” Darcy’s is the Ottawa pub that was once packed with politicos on Wednesday nights. When the Conservatives first took power, the crowd was mixed for a while. Then the Liberals bailed and the Conservative presence fizzled. The “Take Back” was packed.
