Muzzle by overnight courier
I predict that this is the last we'll ever hear of Gordon Landon, the would-be Conservative MP for Markham-Unionville.
City TV's Richard Madan reported on Mr. Landon's rather startling admission -- not once but twice -- that the riding is not getting any money until it's no longer held by a Liberal. (John McCallum currently holds the riding.)
We are a bit confused in our office. One here wondered: wasn't something like this called a "sponsorship scandal" a few years ago -- giving government money to politically friendly ridings? (Note: Technically, it was government money going to Liberal-friendly ad firms, who then funnelled the cash back into the party.)
No doubt this is why the Prime Minister moved quickly to say that Mr. Landon was mistaken in his understanding of things -- and why Mr. Landon will be wearing a muzzle when we next see him.
