Some people can’t take a hint . . .


Last Sunday, I tagged along with [Animal Alliance Environment Voters Party of Canada leader Liz] White as she canvassed in St. Jamestown, the apartment towers that rise above neighbouring Cabbagetown. This is one her strongholds, she jokes, where she received many of the 100 signatures necessary to run. She shows up with a backpack full of flyers, and recounts how the day before, while canvassing, she found an injured baby squirrel. She picked it up--it bit her four times --and put it in her backpack and biked down to the Humane Society to drop it off. This was after she had unsuccessfully chased after another hurt squirrel.

Well, you can't accuse White of not knowing what her priorities are.

The squirrel's probably shocked that his neighborhood nuts aren't where they're supposed to be.

Remember when she was with some fringe Animal rights group - and was interviewed in the Sun. Sher denied any involvement in breaking in and trashing a lab - but she was wearing the same fishermans' sweater in her interview pics as an "unknown suspect" was in security camera pictures from the lab.
Maybe she just borrowed it.

Joan, you're back! Your blog has been sadly inactive lately. You would think there was a campaign on or something.

My nine year old daughter spent Sunday afternoon "rescuing" worms from going down a storm drain, and putting out food for the local chipmunks. (Like they needed any help finding food.) For as much as I love my daughter, though, I don't think she should be in Parliament quite yet. :-)

Thanks Dennis, but I bet your daughter would stop chasing a squirrel after it bit her even once.
