The Canadian Press ran a story yesterday titled “Conservatives bring in former soldiers for extra security on Harper’s campaign," the only real purpose of which was to make PM Stephen Harper look like a dictator and paranoid. For example, I caught CP’s Jennifer Ditchburn retweeting the story and calling these veterans “enforcers” – once outed, she immediately deleted it.
Then there was Rob Burton who is the mayor of Oakville, Ontario who tweeted this:
I’ve sent his smear of our ex-military personnel to Oakville Royal Canadian Legion Branch #114 and will update if they respond.
Also: I found a photo on the Liberal Party’s website of Burton (lower right) attending a partisan Liberal BBQ event:
Update: Burton once donated $17,500 of the city’s money to the Liberals:
Burton, a longtime Liberal supporter who received a “good luck” phone call from Premier Dalton McGuinty just two days before last month’s municipal election, said if there are questions about the donations, the town’s existing integrity officer could do the job of looking into it.
Update: Burton has now doubled-down, equating PM Stephen Harper to Hitler and Mussolini:
Those links Burton posted will take you to Hitler’s SA and Mussolini’s Blackshirts.
