Rounds complete! Target destroyed.

Harper MP Rob Anders was removed from the Veterans Affair Committee today.
Calgary MP Rob Anders is no longer a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, kicked off following controversial comments he made when he was accused of falling asleep in a meeting.

The controversy was prompted by Anders' behaviour at a meeting of the committee in Halifax. The group of MPs was hearing from an organization that helps former soldiers who are homeless and its president said Anders showed up late, then started text messaging on his phone, then fell asleep.

Anders denied that he fell asleep and suggested that his accusers were NDP "hacks" who praised Vladimir Putin.

The Veterans Emergency Transition Services group was angered by Anders' behaviour and comments he made after the meeting. The group called for his resignation from the committee.
I join my fellow veterans in thanking the committee for taking this matter seriously. I'm certain they also will join me in wishing Anders an appropriate farewell.

Thanks for nothing and don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

I dunno, I'd just as soon see the door hit his ass a few times, since it's probably illegal for any of us to actually kick him downstairs.

Boy is going to be annoyed when he wakes up and some tells him the news.

Is Anders any different from the other, ranting, raving minister henchmen? Toews called us pedophiles. Oliver accused us, of destroying the economy of our country. We are trying to protect the planet, from the dirty tar sands oil. Paradis who refuses to resign and Harper refuses to fire.

Watch out for Marc Mayrand. Harper appointed him to, Chief Electoral Officer of, Elections Canada. I doubt he will oppose Harper, he will lose his job if he does. It matters not, the election fraud and the robo-calls, all lead to Harper's Conservatives. Their 902 number, gave them away.

Welcome to Harper's, dirty tactics, dirty politics.

And I'll bet Rob is still trying to figure out why he lost his seat.

As I recall, his local riding association wanted to show him the door before the last election.

The first of many to come . . .

Anders was sleazy early. Maybe he learned it when he worked for Inhofe in the US.

The two veterans involved are pleased, though Lowther says he'll stay a Conservative: http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Veterans+pleased+drowsy+Anders+dropped+from+committee/6375229/story.html

Unbelievable
The modern incarnation of the Conservative Party use soldiers as a shield to their illegal activity and abuse the shit out of them when they get back home and one of their advocates still declares he supports them.
Did strategy and tactics instruction sail completely over the idiot's head.
When someone is shooting at you, you don't shake hands. Lowther is an idiot.
