In case you didnít
notice, it was the PCPs who won the
election. Theyíre everywhere. Under
the beds, in the closets, and in the
corridors of power.
Who are they? They are
the Liberals, who ran the dirtiest
campaign in living memory; they are the
Tories, who under Joe Clark are also
Liberals; they are the NDP, who believe
that Karl Marx still breathes, and,
sadly, they are the Controllers of the
The PCPs are the
Politically Correct Party, which won
hands down. Once upon a Day (if I may
use that term), a lot of people hoped
that the Alliance would be different.
But it is not.
I voted Alliance, so my
quibbles come with regret. But as I
joked to a friend, I would have voted
for bloody Hitler if it meant getting

The tone was set by the
egregious Elinor Caplan, a Jewish gal

Whether she thought of

to talk about Creationism, for Godís
sake, than immigration, the greatest of
the unmentionables, of which there were
Day did say he would do
something about the phony refugee
racket, but the Liberals pay lip service
to the same thing even though it is
their baby, born out of wedlock.
The Alliance fell down
in a dead faint after candidate Betty
Granger in Winnipeg had the temerity to
refer to the Asian invasion, to Tamil
terrorists in Toronto, and to refugees
coming off boats who ďwere not the
best clientele you would want for this
Ainít it the truth?
