A peek inside Rob Anders’ imagination

A Conservative MP worries about government funded heroin injections for children


 

As part of a Halloween-themed statement delivered before QP this afternoon, Conservative MP Rob Anders conveyed the following to the House (emphasis mine).

Mr. Speaker, Halloween is approaching, and Albertans fear a repeat of scary National Energy program thinking.

The NDP wants to suck the life out of us with a $21 billion carbon tax. Those socialist bloodsuckers want to impale us with a gas tax of 10¢ a litre.

Then there is this evil Liberal name that haunts us still and wants to hand out drugs to our kids. This ghost of the NDP wants to acquire heroin with taxpayer money and inject it into the veins of Canada’s children.

What’s not scary is our Conservative government’s recent trade agreement with the EU. This will benefit Albertans by increasing the demand for agriculture products, especially opening the door for our barley farmers.

This will also provide better access to European clothing and many other products at a reasonable price.

While the opposition parties continue with their scary policies, our Conservative government continues to work toward improving Canada’s economy.

One hesitates to speculate about which actual issue of public policy Mr. Anders was invoking with that second sentence—safe injection facilities? heroin-assisted treatment?—but Kellie Leitch might at least be thankful that her suggestion that the NDP’s Libby Davies was “pro-heroin” now seems rather tactful by comparison.


 

A peek inside Rob Anders’ imagination

  1. The good ole’ boys in Sask. and Alberta are buying every penny of this crap from Anders.

    • Yes, all people in Saskatchewan and Alberta are stupid rednecks like Naheed Nenshi. All people in Ontario are enlightened progressives like Rob Ford and Don Cherry.

      • Ohferfuxakes Bean, give it up.

        • Good to see you standing up for directing hatred towards entire provinces Emily. You’re a paragon of progressiveness and tolerance. Because God knows, the ONLY people who have a problem with liberal drug policy are residents of Alberta and Saskatchewan. I’m not making this up.

          • That was Andre, Bean…..not me. Your fake confusion on here is now confusing even you.

            Yes, you’re making it ALL up.

      • I believe “good ole’ boys” is a specific demographic that andre was referring to. No need for generalization.

        • Yes, and remarkably, they only exist in Alberta and Saskatchewan. That’s a very enlightened and progressive way of looking at things.

          • ‘Good ole boys’ exist everywhere. However, rural areas have more of them.

          • Yes, and Alberta, for instance, is entirely rural. Good point. You can look that up.

          • I lived there. It has 2 cities….that don’t get along…..and the rest is rural. And since Alberta is a primary resource economy anyway…the attitude of the whole place is ‘good ole boy’ rural.

          • Why do you say that? Nobody else has even implied it. I know I certainly haven’t, being as I’m an Albertan myself.

            Seems like you need to lay off the projection and actually start reading what’s written.

      • Didn’t call anybody stupid or redneck.

    • I’ll let you in on a secret, even Conservatives wish Rob Anders would go mute. (Perhaps moreso than liberals and ndp do, as they can at least use his twattle for ammunition). The reason he keeps getting elected is he’s running in a riding where anything bearing the Conservative party name would be elected, and seems to have rather good friends in the riding association.

      • And then there are those photos……LOL

      • The reason he has good friends in the riding association is because he has good friends (or skeletons on) those higher up in the party. Considering the work they went to to ensure that the riding association wasn’t taken over by the people who live in the riding.

  2. Ich kann nicht anders.

    • Ha! Sehr lustig. Ich eigentlich auch überhaupt nicht!

      • Ah zwei kleine Seifensieder. Warum gehst du nicht heiraten?

  3. Oh my God. Has Rob Anders forgot to take his med again??

    • Once a year Anders can be counted on to say something asinine. I hope that’s it for this round.

    • He’s awake, which is always dangerous.

  4. Thanks for the trip down that rathole, I think.

  5. Rob Anders imagines a scenario where a) Canadian children are addicted to heroin and b) have entered into a treatment program and c) after years of non-response to methadone treatment, have been prescribed small doses of heroin by their physician and treatment counselor. These imaginary children must have been hooked to the needle at around age 2. He does have quite the morbid imagination.

  6. That bizarre twisting of logic is Kinsella-like in it’s brilliance. Well played sir.

  7. Anders evidently thinks the HoC is a Hallowe’en fun house.

  8. Perhaps Anders has been ordered to ‘jump on the Duffy grenade’. Nothing like a crazy MP to distract from a corrupt PM.

  9. Cory Monteith died with Heroin in his arm that was purchased in Hastings (see “safe” injection site) and injected in Vancouver Centre after trying rehab. The NDP and Liberals have no plan to keep these dangerous drugs out of the hands of children. Cory’s addiction started when he was teenager in BC by the way. So Anders has a good point.
