Yes, I did.Â Silly me thought that just because the byelection in London North Centre was a done deal, Pearson won and all that, that was going to be the last that we heard of it.Â We could get on with the rest of our lives.Â Man, but I can be naive sometimes.
It seems that the London cops have decided to open an investigation into something of a rather unsavoury incident that occurred a few days before we went to the polls:
At the request of London’s Muslim and Jewish communities, police are probing a fake flyer left at doors of several Jewish homes days before the federal London-North-Centre byelection, Chief Murray Faulkner said yesterday.
Disguised as a political endorsement of Liberal candidate Glen Pearson by the Canadian Islamic Congress, the back of the flyer had three cartoons reflecting a close link between Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Israel.
The CIC has denied involvement with the flyer, which seems to suggest Muslims should support Pearson because the Harper government is pro-Israel.
Somebody, anybody, I don’t care who… give me a God damned break. We in London have better things to do with our time than sit back and watch the spectacular turd typhoon that this will no doubt kick up.
No doubt, it will be only a matter of time before the usual suspects pop up to begin the monomaniacal debate over who should be most offended; Muslims or Jews? “Hate crime” and all the other favourite buzzwords will fly fast and furious and we’ll all be gawking at our bellybuttons till our eyes pop out. 🙄
All this — and much, much more — because of what, more likely than not, was nothing more than a couple of little shit-disturbers with a dumbass sense of humour, access to daddy’s PC and printer and too damned much time on their hands…
