For the love of Manitoba Vic Toews must resign

Vic Toews is an on-going embarrassment to our province. To add insult to the injury that is having such a reprehensible character representing Manitobans is that his riding - Provencher - elected father of Manitoba Louis Riel to parliament.

Toews's MP-ship is a stain on the proud history of Provencher and Manitoba. He must resign so as to stop making an ass of himself, Provencher, and Manitoba. Us Manitobans don't deserve this crap.

Remember when the Vikileaks twitter account revealed the dirty deeds that lead to Toews's divorce? What reaction did CON cabinet member John Baird give to what would eventually turn out to be the work of a Liberal staffer?

During question period, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird called the Twitter account a “nasty, dirty, Internet trick” that he blamed on the NDP.

“Not only have they stooped to the lowest of the lows, but they have been running this nasty Internet dirty-trick campaign with taxpayers’ money,”Baird said.

After question period, NDP MP Chris Charlton rose in the House to demand an apology, saying Baird had made an “unfounded allegation” against her party.

Well, this seems to involve some fact-checking by the NDP which Toews utterly misunderstood.

In this twitterfest you can see that self-important and utterly thin-skinned Vic Toews has shifted his bile from the NDP (curious as to what they were accused of) to Justin Trudeau.

Now, what are Vic Toews and his pals doing?

Vic Toews launched yet another Twitter attack against Liberal MP Justin Trudeau today, accusing him of orchestrating the embarrassing Vikileaks Twitter account after it was revealed the account’s creator was once again working for the Liberal Party.

Adam Carroll handed in his resignation earlier this year after he was outed as the mastermind behind the Twitter account, which published lurid details of the Conservative cabinet minister’s messy divorce in response to the Harper government’s Internet snooping bill.

Upon learning Carroll was working for the Liberals again, Toews tweeted: I see [Adam Carroll] is back at #LPC after crocodile tear apology from [Bob Rae]. [Justin Trudeau] & #LPC must come clean on who knew what.”

Toew’s office accused the Liberals of knowing all along that Carroll was behind Vikileaks.

“This dramatic reversal by the Liberal party suggests that Carroll acted with the full knowledge and consent of the senior ranks of the Liberal party,” Toews spokesman Mike Mueller said in an email.


Mueller also called on those who are contemplating a run for the Liberal leadership to disclose what, if anything, they knew about Carroll’s role in the Vikileaks episode.

“Justin Trudeau and all Liberal leadership candidates must come clean immediately,” he said. “Who knew about the sleazy Internet smear? What deal was struck with Adam Carroll to take the fall? Will they continue engaging in sleazy tricks and only apologize when they get caught?”

Given the awful embarrassment of John Baird's foot in mouth accusation of the NDP, you'd think the political-libel lawsuit launching CONs would get their facts confirmed before accusing parties of such things. I guess this is just their "do as I sue, not as I do" attitude showing again.

Vic, let your bruised friggin' ego go. The world doesn't revolve around you. This, coupled with your disgusting contempt of Canadians privacy, shows want an EMBARRASSMENT you are to our province.

Resign promptly. You dishonour the memory of Louis Riel by continuing to serve, with your petty antics.

  1. I agree. Vic is a complete douche. But, I also take great joy in his public humiliation.

  2. Vic Toews is the worst politician I can ever remember there being in Manitoba. He is a total shitstain on this province's image and reputation. He is as bad as Rob Anders, but at least Anders is in the backbenches where he can't do any harm. The Cons could easily find someone better to replace him, someone who would not damage their party's brand as much as Vic does.

  3. I just hope Vic Toews petty antics damage the CON brand to Provencher enough to make it an unsafe seat for them. Liberals have represented the riding as recently as the 1990s (true, PC/Alliance vote splitting helped), perhaps the riding can become competitive again?

  4. Provencher CONs' culture of entitlement has had some ugly consequences.

  5. To his credit though, he's made banging the babysitter acceptable again.
