Photo by Monte Sonnenberg, Simcoe Reformer[…] I would like to preface my final set of remarks by saying that I have voted for the Conservative Party all my adult life. In fact, the only party I have ever been a member of was the Reform Party under Preston Manning.

Fred Litwin on Harper, Caledonia, and Ramadan terror arrest apologies

UPDATE: RCMP denial of Ramadan terror arrest apology vs. Muslim Canadian Congress version
