Oh boy, and I live in this riding. Looks like Harvard boy Michael Ignatieff is being parachuted into Etobicoke-Lakeshore by the Liberals. Hmmmm, I was walking the lakeshore just yesterday and I DID see an ominous black helicopter hovering, but thought nothing of it at the time. From a press release on Warren Kinsella’s blog:
IGNATIEFF CANDIDACY STRONGLY PROTESTED
Media Release (27 November 2005) – Toronto
After prolonged speculation about whether and where he would run, Michael Ignatieff appears to have found himself a safe haven in Etobicoke-Lakeshore…
The intended coronation of Mr. Ignatieff, a virulent Ukrainophobe, is offensive to the numerous Ukrainian Canadian residents of the riding, many of whom have been members of the riding association for many years and form more than one half of the membership of the riding association.
Ukrainophobe. That’s a new one on me. I am soooo looking forward to the all-candidates meetings.
