More embarrassments to Manitoba...

Provencher CON MP & Minister
of Public Safety Vic Toews.

As we all know, people tasked
 with public safety
 never  overstep the bounds of reason

via emails ... which I can't help but think would be entertaining to read.

This is a politician who has become renowned among a small audience of Manitoba political junkies for sending out long, rambling, emails to his "supporters," in which he angrily attacks opposition MPs, journalists and anyone else with the temerity to disagree with him. As a regular target of these emails, I have never responded to the tortured logic or his tenuous grasp of the facts. He is entitled to have his say. If anyone asked me for a reaction to his rants, I merely directed them to take note of the time the emails were sent -- which more often than not was somewhere around 3 a.m. -- and then expressed my regret that I had written something that caused Toews to lose sleep.

I don't know about you, but there's something creepy about the thought of Vic Toews up at 3:00 AM typing angry emails to Dan Lett. It's still amusing, in a very darkly comedic kind've way.

I have to wonder what it is about the calling of public safety that produces so many "with us or against us" type people. This attitude can lead to some pretty whacky (on good days) antics, like Toews twitter feud against the Liberal Party of Canada. On bad days, well, read some history.

All in all, Vic Toews remains quite an embarrassment to this province - even if his whacky antics are amusing from time to time. He must resign, promptly.

  1. Are there recent e-mails? Or is this just an extremely delayed reaction to an incident 5 months ago?

    1. How has this clown not been laughed out of public office?

    2. Given that Vic Toews is launching a campaign against his perceived enemies, any story highlighting his personality has become relevant. Not a lot of people know about Vic's whacky email antics & they should.
