Buh Bye Vic

One of the better Mondays I’ve had of late, after hearing good ole’ Vic Toews has resigned/retired:

Vic Toews, the gruff,mustachioed minister who was the face of the Conservative government’s tough-on-crime agenda through federal cabinet postings in public safety and justice, has cleared the way for a newcomer to the task…He formally announced Monday he is stepping down as Public Safety Minister from Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet. He is also stepping aside as MP for the Manitoba riding of Provencher.

Suddenly in the past 2 days, Toronto Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday comes out of the blue and says he’s been asked by the PC’s to be the candidate in Etobicoke-Lakeshore. When asked about Steve Ryan, the reaction from them seemed to be “who?”.. though Conservative leader Tim Hudak was […]

Belated Canada Day greetings!

Sure its a day late, but better late then never. I hope you all had a Happy Canada Day where ever you were.
