Apparently — and this, according to video footage of our Prime Minister — if you are a woman you are a member of one of those “left-wing fringe groups.” Who knew? Watch the abbreviated version of Harper’s statement below (or catch the full meal deal here).
Antonia Zerbisias, a columnist at the Toronto Star, immediately took issue with our PM’s statements:
I’m thinking of making T-shirts: “Proud to be a member of that `left-wing fringe group’ called `Women.'”
And, as an added benefit to the cause of women’s rights, proceeds from t-shirt sales will go to the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), an organization which lost a significant chunk of funding thanks to the Harper regime.
I’m looking forward to seeing those t-shirts on the bodies of folks here in the Queen City! Go get ’em!
