Canada: Liberal riding official resigns
CP ^ | 12/20/05 | CP

OAKVILLE, Ont. (CP) - The president of the Oakville Liberal riding association has resigned after telling a voter unhappy with gun control to take her "gun loving ass back to the U.S."

Elie Betito's response to a voter about Liberal handgun policy was disturbing and highly inappropriate, said Lindsay Williams, the Liberal campaign director in the riding.

Williams said Liberal incumbent Bonnie Brown was "disturbed by the terrible way it was handled."

At issue was an e-mail exchange initiated by Stacey Cherwonak, who identified herself as a sport shooter and wrote to Brown's campaign to take issue with Prime Minister Paul Martin's proposal to ban handgun ownership as a crime-fighting measure.

"In addition to the millions (if not billions) of dollars that your party has stolen from Canadians since 1993, Paul Martin's speech today makes it clear that your party's word isn't worth the breath it's spoken with," wrote Cherwonak.

"After work today, I signed up as a member of the Conservative Party of Canada, along with a $100 donation."

She concluded with an observation that she was "sick to death of you lying bastards."

In his response on Dec. 9, Betito told Cherwonak to "take your NRA gun loving ass back to the U.S. where you belong."

Brown's spokeswoman said Cherwonak was not a constituent and noted that she had used profanity in her original message. But she said that didn't excuse Betito's response.

Williams said Betito had been riding association president for about two years. "He is sorry for what he did, and realizes that the profanity in the original e-mail got the better of him emotionally."

Betito could not be reached for comment

All Americans can feel the love, compassion and tolerance from this Canadian liberal.

"bastards" is not a profanity.

See my tagline.

I am of the somewhat outside opinion that Canadians, even Ontarians, are revulsed by the ongoing Liberal shenanigans, and will vote for the other parties on Jan. 23rd.

This will result in a minority Conservative government, supported by the NDP, hopefully, and if not, by the Bloc.

Cons: 117

Lib: 89

BQ: 63

NDP: 37

I'm sure Betito has already accepted a job offer from Paul Martin's campaign.

What's "riding" as used in this article?

The term is also found in Britain as well. It's origins go back to the time when an areas representative rode horseback. How much of an area, or number of villages could be reached in a day or week by "riding" a horse.

Today such an area would be known as a Gulfstream V.

Canada's Liberals sound as unhinged as Carolyn Parrish. Guess its the NRA's fault that Canada can't get a handle on its crime problem!

A riding is a Canadian equivalent to a U.S Congressional or State lower house district. Both the federal and provincial Parliaments have members elected from ridings.

I predict another Liberal Government. There are just too brain-dead sheeple to swing Ontario to the Conservatives. But anything can happen. If I'm wrong, then I'll happily eat crow here on FR.

""take your NRA gun loving ass back to the U.S. where you belong."

If the tide begins to go even slightly against the Libs, Many folks will find a reason to vote otherwise than Liberal.

The Liberals are a criminal conspiracy disguised as a political party, and the light of day on their affairs will be their doom.

IMHO. I'm a natural-born optimist. ;^)

It would be great if we could work out some kind of exchange program with Canada where we would take their hard-working, law-abiding citizens and they would take our welfare grandmothers, abortion enthusiasts, condom throwers, screeching feminists, Hollywood drunks, gold-chained union "organizers", race industry "victims", and all the rest of the losers, parasites, and humorless malcontents who comprise the Democrat Party base.

It's something that liberals enjoy.They want us to surrender in Iraq and give up our guns so the criminals and terrorist can ride us into the ground.

HOP, I don't know. I view the libs as quietly imploding. Look at what happened in Mississaga-Erindale (A victory for Islam), the beer and popcorn fiasco and now this. The election is over a month away and this stuff will just keep happening.

I know that down here (far Southwestern Ontario) the libs are not very popular, and don't seem particularly well organized.

Well, except for the 'welfare grandmothers', this exchange has largely happened over the past 30 years. Canada's 'progressive' forces have a large component of Yankee Whackjobs - take Svend Robinson, for instance - please! ;^)

Canada's population would quintuple, and America's productivity would double.

do you mean something like the/a mafia???


Ma·fi·a (mä“f¶-…) n. 1. A secret terrorist organization in Sicily, operating since the early 19th century in opposition to legal authority. 2. An alleged international criminal organization believed active, especially in Italy and the United States, since the late 19th century. 3. Often mafia. Informal. A tightly knit group of trusted associates, as of a political leader. --attributive. Often used to modify another noun.

I support Paul Martin and the liberals. I want Canada to continue trekking leftward until it becomes the secular socialist welfare state that American Democrats dream about. (If it's not that already.) A strong magnet that will attract the bums and scum away from the United States sounds like a fantastic idea to me.

Mafia is as mafia does. The Liberals are gangsters.

Lancey, I can only hope you were being ironic.

Seemingly it's just one stupid, arrogant remark after another from the Liberals.
So far it's been the 2004 campaign in reverse - and then some!
I've said all along that - at least - a minority government is Harper's to lose this time out.
Supposedly, there are polls showing an absolute ground swell of CPC support across Ontario outside of the 905/416 area codes and with only the msm pollsters intentionally urban-weighted sampling holding back the overall numbers.

While I don't see much hope for Toronto beyond maybe 2 or 3 Ridings, it's appearing more and more as if voter disgust with the Liberals is within sight of reaching critical mass in Ontario's hinterland.

I agree. She's welcome to the ranch. 311 acres and a pistol/rifle/skeet range to boot, on the north east side of the King Ranch. Don't own any horses, but I could get some.

Liberals enjoy insulting their electors.

Just look at the smirking faces
of Scott Reid and John Duffy
or Scott Brison.

Canada's rulers despise their loyal subjects
and with good reason.
