The sad tale of PC MPP nobody Rick Nicholls’ idiocy is now well-known. He made an offensive statement, and was called to account for it by the Ontario NDP’s Gilles Bisson, the Legislature’s Speaker and his hometown media.
Last night, however, I finally got to see the video record, below. In it, Nicholls can be seen (around the two-minute mark) clearly reading from a prepared statement. He didn’t just say “squeeze” – he was told to say it. This morning, meanwhile, it’s been confirmed to me by two of the growing number of Ontario Tory Hudak-haters that their leader’s office instructed the hapless Nicholls to say what he said.
After Bisson’s intervention, Nicholls apologized. Will Hudak now do likewise?
