The Next Item On The Agenda that the HOC has made Shane Doan an endangered species, is to save Bigfoot:

So says Canadian [Conservative] MP Mike Lake who has called for Bigfoot to be protected under Canada's species at risk act, alongside Whooping Cranes, Blue Whales, and Red Mulberry trees.

Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against Bigfoot. In fact I've admired him ever since he did that great work in those beer commercials circa 1983. But, as a few people have pointed out, there's a war on and we've got a planet to save. If this is the kind of initiative that we can expect from Canada's New Government into its second year in office, then I think its clear they really have "run out of script", and now that their much coveted majority is gone, gone, gone, they are flailing about madly for direction and coherence. (a point also made here in a normally Tory-friendly space.)

I suspect Bigfoot is being terrribly exploited by The Man(tm) as he is no working at a low-paying service job at Boston Pizza, if the ads are to be believed.

But this makes perfect sense for the Tories - they are often trying to protect non-existant creatures via legislation. Creatures like the poor hard-luck Oil Company, the religious leader forced to perform a gay marriage and the $100 per month childcare spot...

I would urge all those like myself who are completely outraged by this attack on a Canadian that has been cleared by an investigation already to contact the chief architect, Denis Coderre and his chief supporter Ken Dryden to register your displeasure. Remember if they can nail this person to the cross of political correctness just think what they could do to us…

Oh the outrage! How dare Mike Lake do his job and present a petition on behalf of one of his constituents to Parliament.

He should be more like the Liberal challenger in his riding and lie to his party about his past and his qualifications.
