Garth is claiming to be releasing some "disturbing" details.

What will we learn from Garth today? The party has told him that his NOT the CPC Halton nominee.

Will he go green, independent, will he admit the error of his ways?

Slow news week in Ottawa, cue Garth!

I thought I heard them say on the CBC that the "disturbing details" he was going to reveal were about Stephen Harper. I'm sure this will be real "interesting". :roll:

I believe he'll be telling us that "Stephen Harper is really an alien that crashed in New Mexico in the '50s. After recently escaping from Area 51, he took control of the Conservative Party, got them elected so the he can use the TV to broadcast our position to his people. The message has been received and now they're coming".

All will bow before the evil emperor Zur!

How disturbing. :wink:

Well, the Deputy Dawg of the Green Party joined a government roundtable on the Environment and Economy only a few days ago. Maybe that'll be Garth's new gig.

As for "disturbing" details about the Conservatives - what could that be? Muzzling MPs? yawn....

Party on, Garth....

That is it? I guess it really is time to stop paying attention to this guy. Too bad, because he did have some good ideas in my opinion.

The comments regarding how independent candidates can fundraise and issue tax receipts, and in regards to being treated the same as Parties are in our system, were good points.... in my opinion.
