Liberal Party dumps Lesley Hughes for her 9/11-related opinions

Yesterday, we reported on Kildonian-St. Paul Liberal candidate Lesley Hughes' possible connections to 9/11 "Truth" opinions. Today, Stephane Dion and the Liberal Party have decided to push Hughes out. Dion released the following statement:

"The Liberal Party’s commitment to tolerance and multiculturalism is paramount.

I have reviewed the past comments of Lesley Hughes and it is clear they do not meet this standard.

While I appreciate her apology, I cannot condone those sentiments in any way.

I have therefore asked Ms. Hughes to step down as the Liberal Party candidate in Kildonan-St. Paul.

Lesley Hughes was taken by surprise: "It is completely stunning and unjust," Hughes said, reading a copy of the Liberal statement given to her by reporters. She said she had been campaigning all morning and had not been contacted by the party.

Oh, good grief. Another conspiracy nut we don't need, but even so, this campaign has gone insane. All three parties are shedding candidates like snowflakes. At this rate, in another three weeks there won't be anyone left to stand for election.

Is this what the Liebral party attracts? I would expect this from the Dippers and Greenies, but the Natural Governing Party? Oh well, it'll be nice when Mr. Harper has a majority.

I guess Leslie Hughes just found out the true nature of the Librano$. Under the guise of openness, tolerance, diversity, etc., etc., ad nauseum, the wear big jackboots.

Not even the courtesy of letting Ms. Hughes know about her fate before notifying the press: Isn't that just like the apparatchiks in the Lieberal Party of Canada?

Who says there's no collusion between the Librano$ and the Canadian MSM?

This is better than any TV program I've ever watched. Seeing these idiots go down in flames
is much more entertaining.
Can't wait for 9:00 tonight (ET) to watch Fox and see our Barry Hussain do the same.
Life is good.

Only in my dreams! :)
Isn't it amazing that with the internet as our tool...we can expose these "people" for what they really are...worthless!
We need "Statesmen" not politicos.
Politicians are just scum.

JC: "We need 'Statesmen' not politicos."

Has anyone else noticed that since the interference of the MSM in politics, we have far fewer statesmen and a plethora--heck, a blizzard--of partisan politicos?

So you live with your mom, presumably in the basement, are afraid to come out because of "the government" and run a conspiracy theory website? And you expect others to take you seriously?

It's the joke that tells itself.
