...now 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.)
