A disturbing allegation has found its way to the Bunker. The allegation is so molten hot that nobody wants to speak to it.
Oddly, it involves not one but two minorities, a youngish white female MLA and an older black male MLA.

In an era when every last penny counts, it’s a bit of a surprise that the Lakeview Windsor Junction Fall River Ratepayer’s Association would allow over $12,000 to be written off as “missing” due to alleged mistakes by former treasurer Cheryl Newcombe.

Wanker of the Week

Snow whore, er, bore Waye Mason
