Acting on the campaign rule that When in Ontario, Do as Ontarian Politicians might do, Stephen Harper comes to Ontario and does his best Dalton McGuinty impression: Invent a social problem out of whole cloth, declare it a matter of utmost urgency, and vow to ban it posthaste:
“As a parent, I was appalled to see tobacco being marketed in a way that is so enticing to children. Flavouring and packaging them like candy, gum or a fruit roll up,” said Prime Minister Harper. “This just isn’t right. This practice can’t continue. We will not tolerate it.”

“As a [P], I was appalled to see [Q] being [R] in a way that is so [S]. [T], [U], … This just isn’t right. This practice can’t continue. We will not tolerate it”
S: Offensive to Albertans.
T: Movies with sex in the title,
U: Artists on overseas junkets
See how easy it is? Now you try!
