It's taken Canada almost 50 years to have its Kennedy Assassination moment, but, here it is. Thursday May 3, 2012, a day that will be etched in Canadian minds forever. Who will forget where they were and what they were doing when they heard about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's offing of a 'Fraidy Cat Toronto Star Reporter?

OK, it wasn't exactly an offing. But the mayor did come out with guns ablazin', well, not two guns, one gun; OK, not an actual gun, that would be uncanadian, but he did come out with his finger and thumb ablazin', looking' like a gun (about as close as Canada gets to an actual assassination). Toronto's mayor was packin' Canadian heat! OK, maybe he had his hand clenched into a mighty mayoral fist. Whatever it was, it was mighty Canadian!

Mighty enough to cause the speak-truthiness-to-power Toronto Star reporter to freeze and cry "don't shoot!" before running off like the 'Fraidy Cop in Monk.

As the photo accompanying the article shows (read the article here) we've even got ourselves a grassy knoll with a wooden fence behind it. OK, it's not real grassy, but it is a knoll, or, if not an actual knoll, it certainly looks knolly or, at least, has a knoll-like quality to it in a Canadian kind of way.

Thursday, May 3, 2012. A day that will live in Canadian infamy. More Canadian than Wayne and Shuster. As Canadian as an ice cream sundae with a Don Cherry on top.

Already conspiracy nuts are asking, "was there a second reporter", and, more ominously (Dr. Evil finger in mouth moment), "a second mayor?".

Gotta ask you: where were you when you heard the shocking news?

The Toronto Star aka handmaiden to the voices of the vituperative left has been engaging in a personal vendetta against mayor Ford and, when caught out in their slimy, sneaky, invasion of privacy. (A typical lefty tactic) Now they claim that they were the victims in this disgusting charade, (Another typical lefty ploy) and that their scandal mongering reporter was only checking out the property adjoining that of the mayor. Why this creepy little twert had to do this in the middle of the night is not made clear, nor is the necessity of his piling up of cement blocks to take pictures in the mayors back yard explained.

the Star and it's reporter acted like a little kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar right after supper whining that he did it because he was hungry.


"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
