Spaced Out

Another mysterious leak from the Liberal war room has it that the Liberal platform will promise to seek a permanent weapons ban in space.

The announcement has come as a complete surprise to everyone. We didn't even think the Liberals had a platform. Except one with a trap door beneath the condemned man's feet.

But think about it: the CBC and other major media outlets probably already have leaked copies of the platform, and instead of playing up major domestic policy announcements to make the Liberals look good, the CBC picks one which the current government has no ability to influence, because it lies well outside our current technical and political capability.

A promise to nag the spacefaring powers in general and the U.S. in particular about Star Wars just isn't going to make people change their minds.


In outer space.

Spacemen with guns.

From outer space.

You can't make this up.
