The start of a new week.


Every election a few questionable candidates surface. It has to make you wonder. Where do they get these people?

The Tories have lost their candidate Toronto who was challenging Bob Rae.

Harper's people say candidate Chris Reid resigned this weekend after telling them that he couldn't commit to serving four years in government. Yeah right!

Recommendations posted on his blog under the title “Political Thoughts by a Gay Conservative” include: closing the CBC; ending Human Rights Commissions and hate speech laws; ending abortion; allowing “qualified and trained” citizens to carry concealed handguns; and ending the Indian Act and the reservation system.

“These policies just keep Indians and their corrupt leaders dependent on the state and unable to ever have the freedom to succeed,” Chris Reid wrote.

Reid went on to say criticize the passengers on the Greyhound bus who witnessed the horrendous killing of a fellow passenger in Manitoba suggesting that if Canada allowed people to carry concealed weapons they would have diffused the situation by shooting the aggressor in this situation.

I know they just found some nut bar who didn't have a chance against Rae but it makes you wonder. Even if you believe that those opinions are not universally held with the Tory ranks, it makes you wonder why Mr. Reid thought they were.

To make this even more curious, why would any gay man think he would be welcome to sit with Harper and his buddies I simply can't fathom. What, did he thing he was ready to sit on the "A Team" with Tom Lukiwski?

So, what has it been so far.

  • The tainted meat scandal
  • The pooping puffin
  • The Ritz Cracker
  • Insulting a first nations activist in Quebec
  • Mr. Reid's blog
  • Tom Lukiwski is always an embarrassment
  • A supplier to the Canadian Armed Forces has racist posting on its website
  • ...and on and on and on
At least Jack Layton has only had to deal with a dope smoker and a skinny dipper.

I can hardly wait to see what this week has in store?
