    In Ottawa, it’s all talk, talk, talk

    The Ottawa Journal notes the political penchant for prolixity, in this item published October 23, 1899.

    Sir Charles Tupper’s speech the other day contained about 25,000 words. Mr. Foster’s three-hour effort held about 17,000, or about as many as the gospel of St. John, which revolutionized the world. It will be observed that some of our political leaders talk many dozens of times as much matter every year as there is not merely in St. John, but in the whole New Testament, yet don’t revolutionize anything.
