Who ever said Canadian politics was boring? Stephan Dion, leader of the Liberal Party has demanded the immediate firing Tory candidate Lee Richardson for statements he made suggesting immigrants are prone to committing crimes.
Meanwhile, Liberal candidate Leslie Hughes has stated that 9/11 was a U.S. plot and that Israeli businesses left the twin towers in time to avoid the catastrophe. In a 2002 article entitled ” Get the Truth”, Ms. Hughes wrote that internet journalists had uncovered a ‘disturbing picture’ about the attacks indicating that CIA had ‘foreknowledge and complicity of highly placed officials in the U.S. government around the attacks on the World Trade Centre, September 11″.
Ms. Hughes states ” I am a lifelong friend and supporter of the Jewish community (in Winnipeg) and I am deeply distressed by any suggestion to the contrary. I find any interpretation of my journalism as anti-Semitic personally offensive and I heartily apologize for that perception”.
This is an apology? Is she not in fact saying that perhaps the dimwits who have managed to misinterpret her statement are the offenders? According to Leslie Hughes, we have offended her. She oozes typical leftist logic filled with bloated indignation, arrogance and personal irresponsibility.
And this is a woman who wants to make laws in Canada.
