Mike Lake's Blast From The Past

Before the Harper government chose Mike Lake as one of their point men for the long-form census debate, his most notable achievement was to be conned into submitting a petition to place Bigfoot on the endangered species list by a well-known Bigfoot hoaxer. Despite what he was saying way back then, he was not compelled to present that petition. And in any case, these days he's using a different and contradictory argument for his actions.

And the answer to that new argument is: no, you don't have to agree with the petitions you present, but they shouldn't be ridiculous time-wasters that trivialize Parliament, either.
