The two leaders disclosed little after their 25-minute talk in the Prime Minister's Office in Ottawa.
Take out the requisite couple of minutes for small talk, and you're left with about 20 minutes of actual "discussion". That translates to Harper offering his superficial position, Dion re-iterating his alreadly known views.
The big outreach, the meeting of the minds, the attempt to find common ground, reduced to basically a discussion of soundbites. Impressive stuff.
This explains the detailed meeting h/t Mushroom:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has warned Liberal Leader Stephane Dion that the Conservative government is prepared to go to the electorate as early as next week to seek a mandate to extend the military mission in Afghanistan, CTV News has learned.
An attempt to bring people together, or really an occasion to issue threats and ultimatums? Typical.
