Poppygate

The Remembrance Day Royal Canadian Legion poppy is taking some serious hits this November. First Bourque got into a dispute with the Legion and dropped the Canadian poppy for the British one. Then Stephen Harper criticizes the poppy's inability to stay on the lapel and came up with a quick fix with one of those Canadian flag pins in place of the standard-issue pin. Even the picture of TEAM mayor hopeful Andrew Stewart in today's Westcoast section of The Vancouver Sun has a foreign object holding his poppy in place as well.

Something has to be done about those pins, even if it involves something as simple as distributing the poppies with pre-bent pins.

Easily fixed. Just use a tape pad
or two sided tape behind the poppy
and you'll be lookin' smart.

The only foriegn thing holding
Team Burnaby's mayor candidate in
place is Mark Hilford. He's foriegn to Burnaby. Doesn't live here, doesn't work here.

I think it says something about the ability of a leader if he can't even pin a poppy in place without assistance.

That's what Executive Assistants are for. They're also good for carrying the politician's briefcase and getting his/her coffee and taking his/her dry cleaning to the cleaners each day.

Also for making sure the door ahead is open for the politician
to walk through.
