Well, after months of moaning and mewling and criticising, Mr. Harper seems to leaning toward adopting Stephane Dion's position on Afghanistan.
Mr. Harper said his government will seriously consider the Liberal proposals, which include an end to combat operations in 2009 and full troop withdrawal from Kandahar in February 2011.
Mr. Harper said the Liberal commitment to a continued military presence in the country post-2009 is “really very close to the government's position” and he raised the possibility the Conservatives would introduce a new motion on the matter.
I'm always a bit leery when Harper is consiliatory but I do hope there is concensus.
It's going to be interesting to see how Harper's supporters and MP's are going to spin this flip.
Update: France won't announce until Bucharest meeting.
