Environmental Activists or Idiots

Kitchener Waterloo should have their water checked out. In 2008 a total of eight candidates ran for the Federal MP's job.  The Toronto media is providing some free publicity for these role models.

Mark Corbiere ran as independent in 2008 and earned 177 votes. 0.2% . Results here, here. Blockade Arrest hereAn Environmentalist and a hypocrite.

Mark Corbiere ran as an independent in 2004 in Kitchener Centre and earned 277 votes. Details here.

VANOC, AFN Press Conference DISRUPTED, Toronto, March 8th 2009

Locally, he is well known for his involvement in The Spot {which is defunct after their funding was cut by a local Union for suspected drug dealing and violence), a drop-in centre in Kitchener run by youth, and is also involved in the Canadian Network for Cuba and also a member of the Anti Racist Action. Pathetically he received 153 votes, finishing seventh of seven candidates. The winner was Elizabeth Witmer of the Progressive Conservative Party.

Ironically, Julian Ichim is the brother of Thomas Ichim, who ran for the Conservative Party of Canada in the 2004 federal election and also serves in the Canadian military.

You can decide if these individuals are representative of the social justice activist movement or if they are idiots.

Sounds like they would be perfect candidates to run for the NDP.
