I can't imagine how Mississauga must have changed, from his perspective, in the last 50 years or so. I would have hoped that Hazel McCallion, another parishioner at Trinity, Streetsville, might have tuned him up.

Oh! This is fun! Andrew Scheer resigned as Con leader in the Commons at noon today. The knives had been out since the election, but it was expected that he'd hang on for a bit. But he resigned, all for the good of the party, bark bark woof woof. Less than two hours later I hear that the Conservative coffers were paying the difference for Scheer's children to go to a school in Ottawa rather than back home in Saskatchewan. I'm sure that that would play well among the "back home". "I gave $50 to the Conservatives so Scheer's kids can go to Ashbury [or wherever]" would be the cue to grab your torches and pitchforks.
So, so long, then, Andrew. We barely knew ye.
