A high-ranking official within the Canadian Liberal Party resigned Monday after he made disparaging comments on his blog about NDP Leader Jack Layton and his wife Olivia Chow.
Canow News reports that Mike Klander, executive vice-president of the Liberal party’s Ontario wing, stepped down after photographs of Chow, the NDP candidate for the Toronto riding of Trinity-Spadina, and a chow chow dog were posted on his blog dated Dec. 9 under the heading “Separated at Birth.” and comments that stated that “I think Jack Layton is an asshole . . . for no reason other than it makes me feel good to say it . . . and because he is.”
