Presumably, the Liberal campaign has been scripted for some time now. If the plan did not require a plane until day four, why would the party waste money renting a plane longer than we need to?
Cherniak is basically correct on this one, although I don't know whether the decision to not rent a plane until Wednesday followed the script, or the script followed an inability to get the plane. In any case, the ridings being visited are not all safe seats by a long shot, and any time that Dion spends is Quebec, at this point, is well spent. The press kerfuffle is just a matter of the Conservative attack machine scoring a point on some gullible reporters and my only concern is: where is the Liberal Party list of Tory "gotcha" moments, real or perceived? Are they supposed to be above this kind of thing?
