Heaven forbid we find out Michael Ignatieff doesn't like beavers

Responding to accusations that maybe Jim Flaherty shouldn't have spent $3,000 for a double-double hours after talking about belt tightening, John Baird shot back:

[Baird] also accused Mulcair of having something "against Tim Hortons" which he called "un-Canadian."

This is in addition to other positions deemed "un-Canadian" by this government, such as wanting to know exactly what's going on in Afghanistan and proposing campaign finance reform.

You know, this made me think back to a simpler time. A time before "just visiting" adds. Here's Stephen Harper on the opening day of the 2004 election campaign:

Harper answered the criticism minutes later, accusing the Liberal Party, which has governed the country since 1993, of creating a campaign of fear. "You know, in this country," Harper said, "you can be Canadian without being a Liberal."


But heaven forbid you have something against thousand dollar donut photo opps.



  • LOL - the unCanadian guy is Baird. He's the one who doesn't like beavers.

    When is he going to be truthful and come out of that closet?

  • So you can be Canadian without being Liberal, but you can't be Canadian without being Conservative?

  • Yes John Baird is gay... what exactly do people expect to get from trying to make him more out? Unlike that sentator in the US who was just outed... he doesn't have a long personal record of voting against gay rights.

    Sadly it's true... like every other minority... some gay men are blowhard douche bags.

  • It's working. Focusing on Tim Horton's diverts attention from the fact we are heading into a fifth year of a Conservative/Liberal coalition majority government, with the Liberals folding on the budget again.
    Can't the Libeals come up with one single idea? How about scrapping the penny to save money? Something? Anything?

  • As a politician, I think Baird is being very Canadian by refusing to apologise for an obvious and hypocritical mistake, and instead attacking others for pointing it out.

  • If you want to know what happened vis-a-vis the Afgan detainees, ask the members of the Chretien and Martin governments.They KNEW about the allegations and did nothing (according to CBC)! Ask them for the information you seek. It should be easy for you as a Grit to get the information you need.

  • It's so unCanadian to call others unCanadian

  • Hearing the Conservatives call anyone who disagrees with them un Canadian... or soft on crime or a terrorist sympathizer... it's getting a bit old.
