Canadian Alliance MP Snub's Nelson Mandela

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."

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.

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.
