The over-the-top rhetoric in Ottawa continued all stemming from Safety Minister Vic Toews’ comments about child pornographers and his divorce documents being put online via a Twitter account linked to a House of Commons IP address:
Liberal MP Wayne Easter had this to say:
“I think – I think the – look, the way that Vic Toews went on in responsing to the questions that you’re either on his side or you’re on the side of the pedophiles is – was very inappropriate. And so there was an immediate reaction and it came out on the internet. And so, yes, in a way it is deserved. If you’re going to – if you’re going to attack people the way that Vic Toews attacked people, then some of that’s going to come back at you, there’s no question about that.” (see here)
Then this morning Minister John Baird jumped-the-gun and directly accused the NDP of “being caught in a nasty, dirty internet trick”. (see video here)
I’m thinking it’s time for all the parties to turn it down a few degrees as none are looking good in this mess.
