Peace in Middle East at hand

Heading into a Liberal caucus meeting on Friday, Quebec premier Jean Charest called for a cease fire in southern Lebanon today, saying his position is "similar" to that of the G8 group of countries.

How nice.

I am sure the Israelis and Hezbollah will cave in to that pressure.

Paul Wells' take on the recent Premiers' meeting in St. John's couldn't have been more accurate.

What's next?

Danny Williams hops a plane to Jerusalem to see if his expert negotiating skills can work where everyone else has failed?

Bernard Lord promises to make Middle East peace an election issue in New Brunswick?

Ralph Klein delays opening the Alberta legislature so he can go fishing with the Israeli prime minister?
