Why Can't We Do This In Our Country, eh?

Harper ducks Christian controversy:
MONTREAL -- Conservative Leader Stephen Harper distanced himself yesterday from comments by one of his MPs who accused the Ontario and federal Liberal parties of being 'anti-Christian.' Harper refused yesterday to address questions over the comments made in a flyer that Renfrew-area MP Cheryl Gallant sent out to her thousands of constituents.


A leaflet to constituents reprinted remarks Gallant made in the Commons, as follows: "In response to church bombings in parts of the world, the Vatican is asking the United Nations to recognize Christianophobia as an evil equal to that of anti-Semitism or Islamophobia.

"The government has launched a campaign of intimidation to silence churches by dispatching tax collectors to threaten the charitable tax status of denominations who speak out against the Liberal government."


B.C. Tory MP James Moore completely distanced himself from Gallant's comments.

"I don't want to comment on it, but if she's making these assertions, she better have the evidence to back it up."
