Liveblogging the Debate: Free-for-All: Improving Relations with the US

Gilles Duceppe has a surprisingly pro-US answer - we shouldn't be surly ingrates like the Liberals have been. Layton is bemoaning that American "Congressional leaders" (Dems, I'm guessing - yeah, he's claiming they were for socialized health care and against missile defense) don't hear enough from Canada (?!). Harper: "We've got to be able to disagree, without being disagreeable." Bingo. I understand that most of the country is going to be largely ambivalent about American relations, but it's not necessary to be a jerk about ambivalence. Martin seems upset that Harper wrote an op-ed for the WSJ. Boo frickin' hoo. That's not un-Canadian, no matter how much he may try to imply it to be so.
