I truly admire these students’ shit-kicking brio (“Freak out your prof. Join the Conservatives.”) Refreshingly un-Canadian.
Alas, the thrill soon goes bye-bye:
“Conservatives almost used to be seen as pariahs. People are now seeing us as a more viable option. The more politically ambitious kids are joining, because they see what’s happening in Ottawa,” said Bednar, a 21-year-old history major.
Cuz what Canada really needs are tons more unprincipled, philosophically illiterate, careerist “conservative” hacks.
Me, I’ll stick with “pariah.”
