Oakville mayor’s tweet criticizing private security for PM stirs up Twitter controversy

He called the Commissionaires “Nazis.”

    One only needs to read the comments from the HDS crown at the supposedly right leaning paper, NP, never mind others such as the Star, to understand our Prime Minister needs good, effective and armed security.

    What an insult to our veterans considering this security group was started to give veterans of the world wars employment. To call them Nazis when many of them fought the Nazis is disgusting.

    Is the Mayor a Grit, or a Dipper?

      Grit. Apparently McGuinty phoned him a month before the election to wish him luck.

      There wasn’t a link but I read a Twitter claim that the mayor gave about $17,000 of city money to the Liberals. It wasn’t explained how. (Hiring Justin for a speaking engagement???)

      Hard to tell through all that stupid ignorance, isn’t it? Oakville should be ashamed.

  • That’s an @$$hole thing to say.

    I would rather hire former soldiers rather than rent-a-cops.

    Do you want protection or don’t you?

      this is his point ,,his mindset is you should be defenceless

      who should Harper have for security? gay pride parade attendees?

      • Justin St.Denis

        Ditzy queens and dykes on bikes?

      • Or that only Harper should be defenseless.

        Had this been the Shiny Pony, well, nothing is too good for Pierre’s boy.

    his twitter comments are anti-American, Trudeau loving, solar& wind turbine global warming BS, big government spending

    Twitter is the best tool for people to ‘out’ themselves as an idiot.

    • barryjr

      Thanks for the definition I often wondered what Twitter was

  • Millie_Woods

    “I apologize to all vets for my remarks. I
    regret any impact on their feelings or pride. I celebrate the way they went to fight for freedom”

    What a wanker. He should be suing whoever botched his lobotomy.

      That last line cost me a perfectly good mouthful of single malt!

    Mayor “Burden” is apparently a very well connected Grit and a grad of Columbia U.
    Who would have guessed that?
