Richard Warman's disabled lesbian horse
Here's a small sample:
"From the Maritimes to the Yukon, the Great White North was once a lawless land where cruel and offensive opinions roamed free - until one man stood up and brought them to justice. One mighty masked man, clad in the scarlet breechcoat of the Royal Canadian Mounted Human Rights Police, astride a golden disabled lesbian steed, with his faithful transgender Indian scout at his side. Together they rode from Yellowknife to St. John's, keeping Canadians safe from the spectre of multicultural insensitivity.
The Canadian Broadcast Corporation invites you to return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear as we tell the tales of that legendary singing Human Rights Mountie. It's time for excitement - it's time for lawsuits - It's time for... Warman of the Mounted!
A snowy July afternoon at the RCMHRP's frontier headquarters at Fort Tolerance.
You summoned me, Constable Steacy?
Indeed I did, Warman! It appears there's oppression afoot in the West... bad oppression. Someone has been illegally distributing unflattering cartoons of Islam's holy prophet!
Egads! I smell Blacque Jacques Levant and his nefarious Western Standard gang!"
While this might be a "Canadian radio classic" I think the CBC
should resurrect it as a television show. It could air right after Little Mosque on the Prairie.
One question: Who should play Warman? And will the real Warman launch another human rights complaint if the chosen actor's portrayal makes him look any more ridiculous?

Sometimes Dean Steacy is the horse that Richard Warman rides around on. Well he was before he had a problem guiding himself around.
