Rob Anders, the MP for Calgary-West, branded Mr. Mandela a Communist and a terrorist and refused unanimous consent to pass a motion on the citizenship in the Commons Wednesday afternoon. Yesterday, he called Mr. Mandela "a politically correct poster boy of the liberal-left moment."I guess life was too boring in Ottawa for Mr. Anders, and so he decided to liven things up a bit. Next thing you know, he'll want to start shipping slaves from Africa to the West Indies again.
The Prime Minister dismissed Mr. Anders as "stupid," while Mr. Mulroney called his action "genuinely appalling." The leaders of all five parties in the Commons rallied yesterday behind a plan to reintroduce a resolution on Tuesday.
