    Mr. Akin; thank you for bringing forward the intellectual reach of the leader f the Green Party.

    If this agglomeration of hyperactive layabouts had only supported the Conservative agenda to reduce pollution rather than being part of the political mess PM Chretien left, when president Clinton played Chretien for a fool the pollution correction would be further along.

    Without the misguided and uninformed electorate supporting the Liberal Government of Ontario in its ongoing schemes to buy votes the Ontario taxpayers will not be facing the ever increasing electricity cost this corrupt government created. cheers;

    Here in Canada, we tend to get stoned then commit adultery. Those muzzles have it backward.

    If Afghanistan decides to reintroduce stoning officialy we should pull our troops in a Montreal minute.

    Lie down with dogs, wake up with fleas.

    Lie down with backwards, cultish, sexist, bloodthirsty Luddite dogs, wake up with . . . Greens, I guess.

    This has nothing to do with Afghanistan but more to do with Lizzie May and her political aspirations. Using Afghanistan’s spot as a delegate was the only way for her to get there. Using taxpayer money to pay her salary while she is there is another story. I think Lizzie wishes she were the Pope.

    Finally something of value out of MP.May!
    Being disenfranchised by the Government, while a sitting Member of Parliament.
    Is she tired of “going along to get along”!
