Jack Layton and Olivia Chow Suck Ass for - 4 lines of Press!

So ... no surprise really ... but who appointed these two as either Canada's official friends to the Caribbean or Ambassadors at large for the event?

According to CP - the event was a big boost for Layton and Chow:

Federal NDP leader Jack Layton and wife Olivia Chow took part in the festivities on board the party's float in the procession.

Caribana is a tribute to one of the many aspects of Canada's multiculturalism, he said.

"The diverse community that is represented here at Caribana is one of the most exciting manifestation of who we are as a country," Layton said.

"Besides who ever (needed) an excuse to dance up and down the waterfront of Toronto hour after hour."

The event was also a big boost for tourism in the city, which saw a sluggish July.

Read the whole thing here if you care ...
Caribana

The main thing I noticed was the complete lack of any note about the crime and violence that occurred this year like every other year among the "Revelers" and the village peoples of Toronto as they celebrate their traditions ....


File that under Clowns in Politics and The MSM.

Toronto Bucks the trend eh?

Well ... I am not one to bash the city for no reason.
I personally enjoy visiting and I've lived there for short periods of time on and off.

Still waiting for the MSMers to tally up the murders, muggings, sexual assaults etc. surrounding Caribana...

As for the bandwagon riders Layton and Chow .... pfft.
