Women will soon have to take over at the rate the men are falling.  Who knew there were so many nasty guys in the world?

Will it just be limited to sexual harassment?   Elizabeth May's been accused, and is being probed, for allegedly bullying.

"Nasty," can take on many forms.

I predict JT is going to get Me Too'd by someone and the SJW's will have a dilemma on their hands. You telling me he didn't try to get laid at some point? 

It will be interesting to see what the affidavits say when everything shakes out....

Metoo isn't just coming to political Canada-it's here.

There are other men who are about to be exposed. Count on it. The media have been on their trail for many weeks. Once it gets through the editors – once it is okayed by the lawyers – other men will be going down. It is overdue. It is needed.

One of these men is very, very powerful. The stories have been known about him for three years. They are in affidavits, plural.

His name will shock you.

Coming from Warren Kinsella, I'm inclined to believe there's something big about to be exposed.

Yes but he is much cuter, so,

The case against Dykstra does look pretty bad. 

Only for a politician. She complained to police, who decided it wasn't worth pursuing. Another of those he-said, she-said things.

In this regard, a politician’s behaviour can no longer be barely legal. We are entitled to expect more than that. His conduct fell below the standard required.

Granted, but where does it stop? We demand our politicians be 100% pure. One ethnic joke, offhand comment about natives or gays, women etc, or an accusation from someone they knew a decade ago that they were rude or thoughtless and they're toast. The focus on politicians private lives and every utterance has already led to a situation where almost no one of any substance ever wants anything to do with politics. So we get these bland people of little accomplishment, vision or thought, making bland statements so as to not offend anyone on any subject and who care about nothing but their own continued power. How many politicians of the past who did great things, who are remembered for remarkable accomplishments would have been cast aside like yesterday's newspaper if the things they'd said and done in private were dragged out in public and pointed at again and again?

Hell, Pierre Trudeau himself would have been jeered and heckled and never even gotten elected as an MP if it came out he had, as a younger man, ridden around  on a motorcycle wearing a prussian helmet, trying to organize a violent revolution against democracy and writing antisemitic plays.

Where the demands for political purity started is a better question and I'd suggest it was with the Republican pursuit of Bill Clinton.

This is an odd shift of gears, what does a disdain for political correctness have to do with exposing the abuse of power?  It's almost like exposing the abuse of power is ideologically incorrect.

Argus is afraid of me and won't touch my questions with a ten foot pole so maybe someone else could ask him.

The pendulum will probably swing too far before it comes back again. I would prefer to focus on seriously inappropriate actions that have been verified to at least some extent rather than casual comments or we'll end up with much smaller political parties. For starters, middle aged politicians should not be socializing with young females, especially anybody working with them, and unwanted advances from such geezers should not happen. That's not an unreasonable expectation for any family whose twenty-something daughter is working on The Hill.
