Attack of Conscience or Running Away From Question Period?

According to Kady O’Malley’s last tweets, it appears that Stevie Spiteful will be visiting the sites of the Richelieu Floods sites for a briefing tomorrow, suggesting that perhaps Jack may have to wait for the opportunity to ask Stevie his first question as leader of the opposition.  So,  if  Stevie really is heading to the Richelieu tomorrow, did he get a sudden hit of conscience, or did his handlers tell him had to at least look like to pretend to care? Or is this a trip of convenience to stall on answering Jack Layton’s first question as leader of the opposition?  You decide.
