Maybe his assistant can play him in the movie...



I don't have a lot of time for MPs who run attack ads against their opponents during elections for being soft on drugs, then get busted for possession of white powdery substances.

But I tend to agree with Misters Radwanski and Steele on this one - Jaffer got off easier than he should have, but there's certainly no conspiracy here and I don't think Jaffer, let alone Stephen Harper, owes anyone an explanation on this.

That said, the poster above, sent to me anonymously, was just too gosh darn funny to not post.

  • Nobody owes anybody an explanation.

    The situation speaks for itself.

    Hypocrisy, double standards. These are ok in the COnsevative bubble world.

    They're stuck at 30 in the polls for a while now I'd guess. If the Liberal Party has any overtaking manouvers waiting to be unveiled, this would be a good time to try them out.

  • Hypocrisy, double standard.

    That is about right.

    You shouldn't be throwing a complex issue like crime around, and trying to come up with infantile simplistic solutions to it.

    Not one conservative screamed about the slap on the wrist Jaffer got.

    Good old tough on drugs Jaffer, re NDP drug policy against Duncan.

    Now let's say their riduculous tough on crime legislation gets adopted.

    How much prison time would the esteemed Rahim Jaffer be serving?

  • Based on the Star report, it sounds like Jaffer got off due to a police procedural problem.

    Accusations that somehow the government interfered in this are ridiculous.

  • I agree Jaffer or the Tories don't need to explain but the crown or judge or prosecution or someone should.

    Just to shut everyone up.

    We should throw this first time offender into prison and throw away the key. That'll teach them to question the severity of the sentences handed out by our legal system.

  • Radwanski is clueless on this one.

    Jaffer owes everyone an explanation. Legislators who seek a double standard for themselves while trying to lock up everybody else owe the entire country an explanation.

    That's the first and last time I read that loser.

  • Jaffer does owe everyone an explanation on how he runs ads against drugs and than likes to drive around with them in his car.

  • "Legislators who seek a double standard for themselves while trying to lock up everybody else owe the entire country an explanation."

    Then I guess you'll agree that since Jaffer is no longer a legislator and was not a legislator at the time of the incident that he does not owe anyone an explanation. Moving along.

  • Maybe Jaffer is not a legislator now but he sure was part of that "TOUGH ON CRIME" gang for years.

    He railed against soft on crime liberal judges, soft on crime liberal justice sysytem.

    Hell he was even "TOUGH ON DRUGS" in his last campaign.

    Guess our justice system suits rat ass Jaffer pretty good now doesn't.

    God I just love when brain dead conservatives stand by their principles.

    Acoording to their tough on crime stand he should have been locked up for 150 years.

    Throw in 55 years of hard labour to boot.

    He owes all of us an explanation.

    So does his goof ball wife.

    Only if he runs for office again. I couldn't really care if a private citizen is anti-drugs yet is a user himself. So, he's a hypocrite. Why should I care? How does this affect the governance of the nation?

    HAHA! He got away with it before anyone could nail him on it -- POINT FOR MY TEAM!!! HURRAY!!!!

    Point for who's team? Jaffer isn't a Conservative MP. It's not really that hard to understand. He's not an MP. He's a private citizen. However, don't let me stop you on your pursuit of the truth in this issue of great national importance. The truth is out there.

  • Is it really a good idea to compare Jaffer and Guergis to two cold-blooded killers who died in a shoot out with police? I dunno, but doesn't seem that funny to me.

    Can we please get back to discussing the mistakes Harper is ACTUALLY responsible for here? When stories like the Afghan detainee scandal and environmental groups slamming Harper for abandoning renewable energy initiatives are falling below the radar of the Jaffer/Guergis saga that's not good news for Liberals I'm afraid. QP should focus on the REAL failings of this government (and there are more than enough to fiill each QP), not some peronal dramas that are happening on the side.

    For the sake of us all, I just hope some Ontario official just explains ASAP that the evidence was thrown out due to improper procedures on the part of the police so we can all move on already.

  • Well, I'm sure a little difference of opinion won't come between us -- I don't think public officials ever stop being responsible for their decisions and actions while in government. That's my view, and you have yours, which is also legit.

    There's no "pursuit", there's no "conspiracy", and I don't believe for a second anybody really believes it was a conspiracy -- it's just an opportunity for partisan Opposition members and their fans to heap on a rival party.

    Officials enjoy carrying the responsibility of their choices forever if those choices turn out well. For his hypocrisy and lies in office while making laws to govern his fellow citizens, he should apologize publicly. He had no problem publicly denouncing Jack Layton.

  • What an insult to Bonnie & Clyde, fine, upstanding criminals. These two are nothing but spoiled brats, who haven't earned their notoriety.

  • Explanations as to why the impaired and the cocaine charges were dropped need to come from the prosecution authorities, from the Ont Min of the Att-Gen and, for the drug charge, from the Dept of Justice Canada.
