RUMINT as news

"Well, it could be this, or that, or the other thing. We're not really sure, but we're all spun up about the possibilities nevertheless."

Update: Ooops, forgot to get in on the Wild-Ass-Guess Pool myself. For what it's worth, I suspect it's a non-announcement announcement. An excuse to make an announcement about something that's either already been announced, or a project that's not particularly earth-shattering.

If Stephen Harper's government has decided to go ahead with a Big Honkin' Ship purchase, I'll eat my hat.

(OK, so it would be a hat made of breaded cheese and deep fried with salsa on the side. Go Big Honkin' Ship!)

At the local watering hole, of course. You might say that cheese sticks off the appetizer menu aren't actually a hat, but I say if I put them on my head, they qualify.

Argue with me on that point, and I won't share my cheese sticks.

looks like it is a non-event type of non-announcement.

Reports of a Harper Halifax visit are wrong: PMO

Updated Wed. Jul. 4 2007 9:00 AM ET

Canadian Press

HALIFAX -- The Prime Minister's Office says published reports suggesting Stephen Harper will pay a visit to Halifax today are wrong.

Newspapers in Halifax and Toronto quoted an unnamed federal official as saying Harper would make a "substantial'' announcement in the port city.

But a spokeswoman in Harper's office confirmed there are no plans for the prime minister to visit Nova Scotia today.

Some Conservative MPs are suggesting the visit is slated for Thursday, but the PMO spokeswoman says she wouldn't confirm anything until a statement is issued.

A spokesman for Premier Rodney MacDonald says his office is not involved with the prime minister's visit.
