Some women Liberal MPs along with a few in the media here and here have their panties in a bunch over a prepared remark by Con MP Vic Toews referencing NDP MP Niki Ashton’s father Manitoba MLA Steve Ashton:
“I would call upon the member for Churchill to stand in this House and represent her constituents in rural Manitoba, like her father does in the Manitoba legislature, where he has consistently spoken out against the long-gun registry and with the NDP in that province who do not support the long-gun registry and not to vote with her downtown Toronto leader.”
Big deal right? Not according to the Liberals who came running along with their pretend indignation:
Liberal MP Anita Neville - “The gall of him telling ‘Daddy’s little girl’ what to do is beyond reproach”
Keep in mind that Neville was the one calling for Helena Guergis’ resignation with over the phony airport “meltdown” incident with no proof:
“Ms. Guergis should not be afforded special treatment because of her status as minister. In fact, she should be held to an even higher standard than the average Canadian. Her behaviour must be properly assessed”
Meanwhile: Bob Hepburn of the Toronto Star slags a female mayoral candidate and Green leader Elizabeth May says MPs “are bags of testosterone” but don’t hold your breath waiting for Taber or Wherry to report on them.
