Do Conservatives ever change? – Part Two

Aide to Con Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon makes racist remarks aimed at  constituent

Con Agriculture Minister wishes the Liberal agriculture critic had died of Listeriosis

Do the Cons ever change? No. No, they don’t.

Granted, the Liberals have had two problems with racist remarks as well:

Simon Bedard, Liberal candidate, thinks it would have been worth 150 deaths (Indian, presumably) for the army to have put an end to the Oka crisis in 1990

Ricardo Lopez once believed all Indians should be rounded up and made to live in Labrador and leave the rest of Canada in peace

And the Green Party:

John Shavluk makes racist jokes in a blog post ranting about Iraq and 9/11

And the NDP has its own candidate oddities:

Dana Larsen once worked for a company that sold coca seeds

The big, big difference between all these other parties with candidate misbehaviour, and the Cons? ALL THOSE CANDIDATES ARE NO LONGER CANDIDATES. They’ve either been fired, or resigned.

Though it’s a bit amusing about Dana Larsen. I mean, he’s the candidate from Whistler. Duh! And we could get into all sorts of arguments about the fake “drug war” and how it’s used to terrorize citizens who are harmless, and invent criminals for the right-wingers to froth at the mouth about, blah blah blah. BUT. Just knowing it could be a problem for his party – DANA LARSEN VOLUNTARILY RESIGNED.

And one of those Liberal candidates who was fired? Ricardo Lopez? WAS FIRST ELECTED AS A MULRONEY CONSERVATIVE, AND RAN FOR THE ALLIANCE PARTY.

Do the Cons ever change? No. No, they don’t.

    Stephen Harper has his head so far up George Bush’s back passage that George could get a gig as the two-headed freak at a traveling sideshow.
