Last night Craig Scott convincingly won the downtown Toronto riding of Toronto-Danforth. Both the Liberals and NDP are trying to spin this to their favours. I personally don't think it is significant of much. The status quo won last night. This was not a win for anything but the same-old, same-old. So let's just examine Craig Scott.
An internationally recognized expert in human rights, MP Scott has spent time all over the world advocating for those who are experiencing an abuse of the civil and human liberties. Craig Scott is a strong advocate for curbing poverty and Aboriginal rights. He has been a leader on the Afghan detainee issue. Michael Ignatie... I mean Craig Scott.... is the kind of person we want in Parliament. He gives Canada a positive image on the world stage.
Welcome to Parliament, Mr. Scott! I'm sure you'll make resident of Toronto-Danforth proud!
