You have a curious.... and selective memory, Billy Bob. In the first place, the war isn't over, Canadian troops are still stationed in Afghanistan. Unless by "the war" you mean WWII, which Trudeau, like most us alive today, only read about in History classes. You might also remember that the Constituency Scandal involved members of all parties - including the current Premier and other members her government - and, although it was created by the actions of the Tobin government, every MHA slopped from the trough with equal abandon. Your claim Trudeau the Father's allowed "every type terrorist in the country" is also historically inaccurate. Doubtless there were "terrorists" amongst the millions of immigrants and refugees that came to Canada between 1968 and 1984, but blaming the leader of a government that has been out of power since before the end of the Cold War for current events is not just dubious, it's desperate. I might remind you that there have been PC governments, Liberal governments and, for the past 7 years, Conservative governments in power - and six different Prime Ministers - since PET last walked the halls of Parliament. You might just as well blame Pearson for the FLQ, or Mulroney for the Air India bombers, as blame PET for the terrorists of today. Please, Billy Bob, if you are going to cite history, cite actual history and not your own alternative version.

I decided to support Peter Penashue. All politicians have questionable donations and spending. All politicians represent their leaders. Peter Penashue is just honest enough to admit that he is no better than the rest He is honest enough not to cover things up as good as the rest. This honesty is refreshing and deserves a vote.

While I'm not a supporter of Penashue, I see nothing wrong with him reminding the voters that Joones was quick enough to wrongfully dip into the constituency allowance in a large way. If a public employees were caught double billing the government, they would be fired and charged.

Jay.....you are absolutely right, Yvonne Jones would not have paid back the money, if she didn't get caught, same as the other crooks in the Liberal government. As for young Justin, he's still a kid, probably doesn't realize the war is over. We know what happened with the last Trudeau Gov, in allowing every type of terrorist in the country, and we are still dealing with the F!@# ups to this day. Does anyone still remember the days of brown paper bags of money passed around within the corrupt Liberal Government.
