Harper-Ford BBQ Footage

In case you’re interested, here’s the YouTube video featuring “Canada’s best known fishing buddies” that was described by Tim Harper in the Toronto Star the other day. Better hurry though, as a previous uploads have been yanked, apparently at the behest of paranoid, ultra-secretive Conservative Party apparatchiks.

There’s actually nothing terribly startling about it:

So, to recap — there was surprise guest Harper, telling the crowd about a heretofore unknown fishing trip with Ford, lauding the mayor for cleaning up the NDP mess at City Hall, patting himself on the back for cleaning up the leftist mess in Ottawa, rooting on Tim Hudak (without specifically naming him) to complete the “hat trick” by ousting Dalton McGuinty on Oct. 6.

Perhaps, as Harper (the columnist, not the Dear Leader) suggests, “there’s something unnerving about the two of them trading thigh slappers and appearing to have such a damn good time while cutting jobs and gutting services.” Or maybe the Conservatives just didn’t want people to see Jim Flaherty wearing that ridiculous faux boxing belt awarded to him for being “World Championship Finance Minister.”

  1. Thanks for the link. This was like the fourth attempt to post the video… it keeps getting yanked by Conservative activists who appear to be terribly ashamed of it for some reason. Guess they don’t want folks to see them in their natural habitat behaving like jackasses.
