And thus begins the new era of cooperation, with John Baird as House Leader

John Baird, famous for telling Toronto to "fuck off", now complains about Toronto elites. Suffice to say, none of Toronto's mayoral candidates will be making a lot of calls to secure John Baird's endorsement.

Baird slams 'Toronto elites' over gun registry

Government House Leader John Baird has denounced Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and NDP Leader Jack Layton as "Toronto elites" over their support for the federal long-gun registry.

On the bright side, calling Michael Ignatieff a "Toronto elitist" is a slight improvement from calling him a "Harvard elitist". It's progress towards a more civil political dialogue, and given the state of affairs in Ottawa, we should be grateful for any progress.
