A week after he signed on to Premier Dalton McGuinty’s latest program to eradicate youth violence, Argonauts coach Mike "Pinball" Clemons was helping the man who wants McGuinty’s job.
Pinball made an appearance in a video introducing Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory at a weekend policy convention in Niagara Falls.
"John Tory, he’s the story," beamed Clemons, whose remarks were obviously filmed months ago when golf shirts were suitable outdoor attire.
Tory quickly took the stage as AC/DC’s tune "Are You Ready" blasted through the hall where more than 1,000 party faithful — including several families who brought their children — gathered for a steak dinner at a hotel overlooking the American falls.
But it was all too much for some of the tots — one was seen in the hallway crying on his mother’s shoulder after the speech in which Tory blasted McGuinty as a promise-breaker whose higher taxes and refusal to fire a cabinet minister who violated an ethics law diminish all politicians.
Obviously, too upsetting for young ears.
