"Draft Bill Blair": Will ex-Toronto police chief run for federal Liberals?

Rebel Staff

Some Liberals in his Scarborough Southwest riding want outgoing Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair to run for the seat currently held by Dan Harris of the NDP.

They've launched DraftBillBlair.com as part of their campaign.

According to the National Post, if he did decide to run, "the chief would enter a field already crowded with Scarborough Liberals angling for the nomination, some of whom have already been campaigning for more than a year."

Blair's future has been uncertain since last July, when the Toronto Police civilian oversight body turned down his request for a contract extension, without making the specific reasons public.

Bill Blair is part of the anti-gun-nut-coalition. He doesn’t think citizens should have the right to own firearms – let alone use them in self defense – and if he has his way he’ll send jack-booted thugs into your home to take your firearms!
As police chief he had a very limited capacity to take your gun rights and your guns – as a politician…look out!

Most senior positions in large police organizations are suited to those with well honed politically based/ bureaucratic survival instincts.

Just another way for the people of Scarborourgh to vote for conservative. When do these political types retire. You got Hillary running for president she is 65 years old now if she wins she will be 67 when she runs again she will be 73, remember Churchill was 65 when he became prime minister BUT he had a life of expirience.

Bill Blair will be a perfect fit for the Liberals. After all, he brings with him 35 years of very relevant experience, sniffing and slithering his way to the top.

Another for the group of pigs, perverts and punks that make up the Liberal Party. What they do need is some females to join and bring some desperately need testosterone to the pack.
