Liberals, Kingsley And That Little Boy Who Cries Wolf

I have been surfing both Tory and Liberal blogs regarding whether or not convention fees count as donations and I have noticed the following.

1) Phantom Observer (a blogging tory) has some of the most valid arguments out there and has done his homework on the elections act. Nice job my friend. When are you coming back to Ottawa? P.O. has some links and assessments of the current elections act and the only thing clear in the elections act about this issue is the ambiguity.

2) In Phantom Observer’s comments someone named Eugene Parks. You all remember Eugene Parks don’t you? Kate already destroyed his credibility. You can read about this loser here, here and here. In any case, I didn’t see any emails or screenshots at his site. Just links to other blogs harping about this issue. Eugene is the same guy who tried to get the blogging tories shut down based on exceeding the donation laws. Some people just don’t know when to quit. to add to this point the guy is posting the same post all over the web promoting his site which points to a site that displays his emails. The same post has been spotted on other sites as well.

3) There there is sonemamedia. Again, emails which quote our friend Eugene, above which are the emails which Eugene claims help prove his case. Ironically, when someone is so hell bent on carving up the tories, his lack of credibility destroys sonemamedia’s blog posts. It looks like a which came first the sonemamedia posts using Eugene’s emails or Eugene pointing everyone to sonemamedia’s website … errr … sort of like the chicken and the egg(head).

4) Then we have Elections Canada head honcho, J.P. Kingsley. This is the man who can’t even keep non Canadian citizens from voting in our elections. How is he supposed to be able to sort out a mess that pertains to an ambiguous Elections Act. If it would mean revamping elections canada and the elections act, I would almost beg the tories to open the books and expose the flaws that let an American student at U of T get a ballot in the last election.

5) No one seems to be mentioning much about the Liberal leadership convention or past policy conventions except the Tories. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander so if the Tories have to open their books, the Liberals will have to as well.

6) What I find especially heinous here is that the Liberals are asking that the Tories put $1.7 Million into an account should their be any improper handling of the convention fees. I would like to ask the Liberals to put $100 Million (the amount that might have gone missing to Liberal friendly ad firms and was potentially kicked back to the Liberal Party) into a similar account until we find out where the Adscam money went. Oh wait … the Liberal Party of Canada doesn’t have any money. Maybe they should just declare bankruptcy and all go join the NDP. I bet Bob Rae would love that!

    Um … actually, I’ve been back since last Tuesday.

    I’ve been thinking about getting up a meeting of the National Capital Region Blog Mafia for the July 8 weekend, either at the Earl of Sussex or at the Mayflower on Queen St. Interested?

    Sure. I’ll keep an eye on your site. Let me know and I will post about it.

    Gee, I guess you didn’t see Barbara Jaffe’s news article which ran in about 6 papers today about the Cheque Swapping – eh?

    Hey… keep shooting the messengers instead of dealing with the mess. It’s a strategy that’s worked so well for the CPOC in the past you know.
