An exception came when Mr. Kenney slapped down a question from a student about the recent spate of prepared statements in the House of Commons by Conservative backbenchers criticizing Liberal strategist Warren Kinsella, in part for his campaign against right-wing blogger Kathy Shaidle, whom he accuses of racism.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. Sorry. I take it you’re from the Liberal club, you’ve got Warren Kinsella’s talking points. Good for you. Send me a memo, I’ll look into it,” he said.
“He guessed right,” said the questioner, Gabe De Roche, recruiting manager for the campus Liberal club.
As I’ve stated before, I support Warren Kinsella’s right to say whatever he likes, and will continue to do so.
But of course, that’s all just an amazing coincidence and has no bearing on anybody’s recent spate of moral posturing.

UPDATE: Now with helpful graphic:
UPDATE: The National Post story above is actually and much more importantly about Jason Kenney and the Conservative Government possibly “cutting funding to anti-semitic groups;” a commenter at Kate’s observes sharply that “that would be bad news for the CBC…”
UPDATE: Hmmm… Sounds so… familiar….
