You Know You're Disunified When You Fink Out The Party Leader To The Cops

And that's what a number of Ontario Conservatives are attempting to do

Some party members were so frustrated at [John] Tory's leadership that they had been circulating copies of the Criminal Code of Canada, suggesting he was breaking the law by promising to try to find a job or other source of income for one of the PC caucus members so they would step aside for him.

It is an offence under Sec. 124 for anyone to “sell an appointment to or a resignation from an office,” or for anyone who “receives, gives or procures ... a reward, advantage or benefit of any kind as consideration ... to secure the appointment of any person to an office.”

I say, straight-up, that the Tories should keep the guy, for reasons I explain here. Short version: a "strong horse" ideologue from the back woods [R. Hillier, for example] will not win in Ontario for a long time, unless the economy collapses utterly and we all return to a state of Barbarianism. Best keep the moderate you've got.

Or don't, and Dalton will be in power until 2020. Wasn't there, after all, a Psycho IV?

Speaking of leaders...

Saskatchewan chair of the WBTA executive and leader of the Western Independence Part of Saskatchewan. Not a big fan of same sex marriage either.

Well in order to be a fan of equal marriage you have to NOT rabidly hate gay men - and the number of Western separatists who don't can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

The number of Western separatists who aren't willing to be associated closely with people who rabidly hate gay men is zero.

And to be clear, I don't mean

I've now read the blog. He's not only a bigot, he's profoundly stupid.

He makes the statement that the Supreme Court has declared same-sex marriage a human right - which it hasn't (since it was already government policy) and makes the completely false statement that the provinces' authority over the solemnization of marriage allows them to do an end run around the federal definition - which the Supreme Court has said they can't, as even Ralph Klein eventually acknowledged after lying about it for years.

So one wonders - is he an idiot or a liar, or both?

On the other hand, he does want to make booze cheaper...
