Our charter requires 0.04% Canadian coverage, and here it is:
A high-ranking official within the Liberal Party of Canada resigned today after he made disparaging comments on his blog about NDP Leader Jack Layton and his wife, NDP candidate Olivia Chow.Here's the cache of his since-deleted site. But, since the pictures have been deleted too go here to see a screengrab. It's really mild stuff by our standards, but, they're Canadians so be kind.
Mike Klander, executive vice-president of the federal Liberal party's Ontario wing, stepped down after photographs of Chow, the NDP candidate for the Toronto riding of Trinity-Spadina, and a chow chow dog were posted on his blog dated Dec. 9 under the heading "Separated at Birth."
