How to describe a government bill you don’t like

Dennis Bevington doesn’t like Bill C-27, the First Nations Financial Transparency Act. Indeed, the NDP MP who represents Western Arctic expressed his distaste with the legislation in fairly graphic terms during today’s meeting of the aboriginal affairs committee. After he outlined several problems he has with the bill, Bevington concluded thusly:

If you were to characterize this bill as a thoroughbred horse, it would have three broken legs. It’s probably best to shoot it.

And that’s how you take all the nuance out of opposition. Not that nuance is ever necessary, of course.
