Humbert the Cat Runs for Office


A candidate we can believe in:

There’s a new independent candidate running in the riding of NDG-Westmount.

Humbert, a four-year-old tiger tabby cat, is throwing his paw into the mix with NDP candidate James Hughes, Conservative candidate Richard Sagala and incumbent Liberal MP Marc Garneau.

Under slogans like “An honest face,” “The time is now,” and “Let’s keep the box clean,” Humbert is running in his first-ever paw-litical campaign.

Humbert the cat is running for the federal candidacy in NDG, Wednesday, August 19, 2015.

  • Smartest one in the race.

  • I for one welcome our new feline overlords.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Bow when the whiskers flick about. It’s the safest policy, I have found. 😉

    • I will gladly toil in their underground sugar caves.

    I like Mark Garneau, but he is about as exciting as watching paint dry or grass grow. The cat would have my vote in a heartbeat. I like the way cats cover up their shit. Such an improvement over the oractices of our current shitty political class.

    Before you get too excited about legalizing wild catnip you’ll also be glad to note the “New Rhinocerous Party” is running candidates in QC as well

    In other feline news, the WSJ today described the popularity of kitties in Istanbul. Islams hate dogs by command of mohammed, so some apparently have redirected their pet energy to cats. Go figure. (I swing both ways.)

    Why Istanbul Should Be Called Catstantinople

    So glad I don’t live in the riding and have to make a choice, Unfortunately, Humbert shares a name, albeit singular, with one of the most notorious pedophiles in literary history;

  • ontario john

    And unlike NDP candidates he is litter trained.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    His platform is absolute purrrrrfection.
