It couldn't have been a more revolting spectacle. Canada's Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand called to testify before a House of Commons committee.
To talk about the foul voter suppression bill known as the Fair Elections Act, and the Harper regime's attempts to muzzle him.
Only to have the Cons try to muzzle him again, by breaking a deal they had with the opposition, and scheduling a vote in the Commons, just as Mayrand was preparing to address the committee.
Which had even the MSM gasping in disbelief.
I'm glad the mother of Cpl. Justin Stark decided to speak out about the one-cent cheque the government sent her dead son.
And that the Cons were forced to apologize, for the pain that was caused.
The mother of a dead Hamilton, Ont., soldier who received a cheque for one cent from the federal government has accepted an apology from Defence Minister Rob Nicholson but said the incident has reopened wounds.
So hopefully it doesn't happen again, because it has happened before.

Well it seems like I've been waiting forever, but Olivia Chow is finally ready to begin her campaign to become the next Mayor of Toronto.
After a year of careful preparation, Olivia Chow is finally ready to enter what is fast shaping up as a tough race to become Toronto’s next mayor.
Chow is fully expected to file her formal nomination papers at city hall during the week of March 17 and will immediately release her complete campaign platform, which is being described as “ambitious, surprising and bold.”
Golly. Can you believe it? It seems Stephen Harper and the Con regime have changed their minds about marijuana.
Forget everything they said before, or the disgusting way they tried to smear Justin Trudeau.
Justin is still a junkie, but the killer weed is NOT the source of all EVIL.

Well I think it's safe to say it's the last thing Stephen Harper needed, what with all his other scandals.
It must be a bit like Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Past.
But like it it or not old Brucie is BAAAACK !!!!
For some reason I've always assumed that the Cons were rushing their foul voter suppression bill through Parliament, so they could try to steal the next election like they tried to steal the last one.
For why else would they be in such a hurry? Why else would they even ignore the critical comments of the Con Godfather Preston Manning?
But now Lawrence Martin has reminded me of another possible reason. They're trying to cover their asses from the fallout of the robocall scandal.
It could only happen in Harperland, a place where decency goes to die, and the Big Lie rules.
Where a Con MP can lie outrageously about personally witnessing election fraud.
And get away with it shamelessly.

This is the story of two cheques.
This big fat one...
The one Nigel Wright sent to Mike Duffy.
To cover up a sordid scandal.
And this one, in the miserable amount of one cent...
That went to Justin Stark who killed himself after serving his country.
Well he went down to Los Angeles where he was given the celebrity treatment by Jimmy Kimmel.
It all went to his head like a hit from a crack pipe.
Until he left Tinseltown tonight, feeling like a sucker.
