First Reading (10/26/09)

Today's essential political reads:

1) Conservatives fan out across the country to announce a crackdown on early parole

2) More details on the federal government's pension reform plans

3) Hey Canadians -- Scratch Libya off your vacation plans!

4) Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney: Banks need an attitude change

5) And from here @ home:  Milewski waxes poetic on all those Conservative logos
