Canada is not North Korea

A short time ago, our local Member of Parliament, Elizabeth May sent out a tweet comparing Canada to North Korea.

The absolute insanity of such an allusion will be quite obvious to anyone.

Then, instead of apologizing for such an insulting reference, May doubled down on her lunacy and proudly defended her comments publicly.

Now, I could easily sit here and fill the pages of this newspaper with the reasons such thinking is delusional, purely partisan, idotic and utterly disgraceful, but that would be a waste of time.

So, since Ms. May is so cocksure that she is in the right, I am issuing a open invitation for her to accompany me to one of our local veterans clubs and run her comparisons by some Korean War vets.

Surely, having backed up her opinions on a national stage, sitting down with a few octogenarians won’t be an issue.

Come on Liz, the first round is on me.
