Is every possible avenue for cutting spending going to be attacked because someone will be worse off?


What a silly question, of course they are... especially if you go after the old people who have nothing better to do on election day then to stand in line and boot someone's butt out of office?

We won't get into the gutless politicians discussion again will we? In truth ours have it a bit easier as they can hide behind the party discipline thingy.

Rob Anders wins ‘least valuable politician’ distinction in annual Hill Times survey

.By Andy Radia | Canada Politics – 19 hours ago.

And, not surprisingly, Alberta MP Rob Anders was voted as the least valuable politician.

In terms of Canadian political gaffes in 2012, it's Anders and Toronto mayor Rob Ford 1 and 1A.

This year, Anders gained notoriety for falling asleep at a meeting about homeless soldiers, for telling a reporter that Thomas Mulcair helped to hasten Jack Layton's death, and for suggesting that the goal of a transgender rights bill was to give transgender-ed men access to women's public washroom facilities.
