Why are you Jack? I seem to remember a Liberal that paid a huge price for a comparison of some nature about Olivia Chow. I think he's still paying the price. Yet, Jack Layton has decided, not only to stand by Mr. McKeever, but, in fact, defend him. McKeever, who actually put threats to people in written word over the internet is being allowed to continue his run as a candidate for the House of Commons.
Another question is: Isn't there still a law somewhere that deals with "uttering a threat" in this land? Mr. McKeever uttered threats over the internet and they are in writing. Couldn't a charge be laid? It's obvious Mr. McKeever has clearly lost sight of how serious the ramifications of his comments really are.
Seriously Jack, isn't this guy a bit worse than your dope smokers in BC? At least they didn't call a woman a cu*t JACK! Fire McKeever Jack. Do the right thing.
