Calling Peter Mansbridge

Babble on.

This should be the next big story in the Canadian media (ht Greg Staples via sda).

Peter Mansbridge? Lloyd Robertson? Kevin freakin' Newman, even?

Help me Colby-wan-Kenobi, you're my only hope! Even though I don't look as good in a space-age bikini as Carrie Fisher...did back then.

Again with the breath holding thing, though.

Babble off.

Thanks Damian!
There is another aspect to this...

Think about the charity donations to the Liberals ...

Last election churches were threatened with losing their tax status if they got political but charities can give money to the Liberals???

The Shotgun has linked to me and someone posted this:

Very curious, especially since the Canada Revenue Agency people ("CRAp") supposedly take an exceedingly dim view of registered charities engaging in ANY overtly political activities, directly or indirectly, as per this excerpt from a recent CRAp advisory on the "charities" section of their website:

"What constitutes partisan political activity (by registered charities) has not changed in any way in the new guidance, as the limitation on this type of activity is contained in the Income Tax Act at subsections 149.1(6.1) and (6.2). Partisan political activity involves the direct or indirect support of, or opposition to, any political party or candidate for public office and is clearly prohibited."

I, for one, won't be holding my breath waiting for CRAp to zealously pursue those charities whose prohibited actions involve supporting CRAp's Lieberal masters, notwithstanding which I vow not to call Canada "half-assed" for letting this sort of thing go on.

Jeezus Damian, Here I was settling in for a nice relaxed evening, having vented my spleen on my own blog. And now ... this post! Good God man, has it come to this? Charities and churches bribing the Party? Don't let go of it.
