Ask a Liberal leadership candidate

Remember, these are the cream of the Liberal Party, the folks who said they were most qualified to keep Canada's financial books...

As of Tuesday -- that is, nearly seven years after the leadership race in which Liberals picked Stephane Dion to lead them -- four candidates still owed money.

Dion owed the least, at $7,500, while Ken Dryden still owed a hefty $225,000. Hedy Fry had $69,000 in outstanding debt while Joe Volpe had yet to repay $97,800.

The candidates were given several extensions of the original 18-month deadline to repay their loans.
Yet they still call themselves "honourable members." Can anybody tell me why?

Insiders tell me the CBC is gonna play this one a little differently than the folks over at Macleans magazine.

You know... something along the lines of "Knuckle-dragging Harper dictatorship forces Canadians to live in penury and squalor."

OTTAWA – The Mounties intend to widen their probe into inappropriate expense claims filed by Liberal Senator Mac Harb, who claimed an “uninhabitable’’ home as his primary residence, court documents reveal.

In a sworn affidavit filed in an Ontario court, RCMP Cpl. Greg Horton said the force wants to see records dating back to the time Harb was appointed to the upper chamber a decade ago by former prime minister Jean Chretien.

“The period of time for which I am seeking documents and data is for the entire time that he has been in the Senate for which records are available,” Horton wrote in a document known as a production order.

Media reports and friends on social media have identified the slain man as Sammy Yatim, 18. Yatim was originally from Syria according to his Facebook page.

His uncle told the Toronto Sun that he had no history of mental illness.
Now, according to an eyewitness, Mr Yatim had a knife in one hand and his junk flappin' in the breeze (see update above)... which, call me wacky, suggests something on the darker side of behavioural norms.

It is however, a serious crime to brandish a knife in public.
“And since when does a scrawny 110-pound-something teenager become a threat to a dozen or so brawny policemen.
Well, my friend... that'd be when said teenager pulls out a knife, and additionally, refuses to put it down when confronted by police... which takes a little of the steam outta the second coming of Beaver Cleaver subtext which runs through this piece.

Oh yeah, the Star also shrinks the weapon to half its previously reported size.
Witnesses said Yatim brandished a three-inch knife and ordered everyone off the car.

From the smallest acorn... springs a mighty oak...

Dear Kaitlin,

I really believe that Toronto has been quite miserly in its recognition of those good people who have worked in the shadows, avoiding well-deserved recognition of their contributions to those who have been marginalized by our often heartless society.

For example, the late Jack Layton, concerned about the rampant unemployment experienced by young immigrants in general, and young Asian females in particular, tore down many of our primitive societal barriers by frequenting a Non-Traditional Wellness Center in order to selflessly re-distribute some of our tax-dollars so that a poor immigrant girl could have, ahem, meat on her table.

In honour of Mr. Layton and all the socially progressive citizens of your great city, it is only fitting that a plaque should be erected at the very spot where this noble sacrifice occurred: 787 Dundas Street West.

Yours in solidarity, etc....
Hey, if Gawker can crowdsource bags of cash to, er... memorialise Mayor Ford... why can't folks of a conservative mindset return the favour to an enduring icon of the lunatic leftosphere?

The Tawana-fication of America

Somehow, "gaffing the wheel" just doesn't quite cover it...
who will guard the guards**********

RELATED: Witness, what witness?

Lost in what Weigel described as Cutcher’s “media tour” was the recognition of what Cutcher originally told the 911 operator on the night of the shooting, namely that there was “a black guy standing up over the shooting victim.”
It isn't a justice system... it's a legal system.

Ask a Journo-Canadian

The ceaseless hunt for murderous drug lord Pablo Escobar, er... Mayor Rob Ford continues...

"Peter Jacobsen, a lawyer hired by CBC News, the Globe and Mail, Sun Media and a number of other news outlets notes there is no certainty that the warrants contain any evidence implicating the mayor in any wrongdoing; but he insists seeing the warrants may be the only way to clear the air."
Hmmm... how much investigative reporting have the Toronto media done on the nefarious Dixon City Bloods themselves... without trying to implicate the conservative Mayor of Toronto?

I hear crickets.

Compassionate, intellectual Quebec...

...decides maybe Mike Harris wasn't such a meanie after all...

“These people may be in danger of being evicted from their apartments because they aren't able to pay the rent,” said François Saillant, the coordinator of housing rights group FRAPRU.
Uh, François... not to quibble here... but isn't it the government (aka the wage-earning, tax paying citizens) of Quebec who are actually paying the freight here?

Just askin'.


Kilted crime wave has city quaking

Notorious Glasgow-born gun thug Angus McTartan has struck yet again, this time on the Canada Day weekend...

TORONTO -- Police say the man, believed to be in his 30s, was shot after an altercation on Wishford Drive, in the Morningside and McLevin avenues area.

The severity of his injuries was not immediately known.

UPDATE: Late-braking correction...
Police are looking for a black male with braided hair in connection with the shooting.
Damn you, Angus... we'll get you one of these days.
