Boating quiz

How many minutes do you think will go by before the Reformatory war room issues an outraged and/or pious release on the absence of a life jacket on or near the Liberal MP in question? (Link here.)

Then again, maybe not.


  1. Cath says:

    Bob looks dressed rather appropriately for his day I’d say. I’m pretty sure the PM’s attire during the Zodiac run is a tad overstated and almost Iggyish – fish out of water short of thing unless the context of the photo is explained(which it is eventually)
    That neither is wearing a life-jacket is wrong especially with so many drownings in Ontario of late. It’s irresponsible and sets a bad example.
    Then again maybe the person photographing Rae is standing on shore, making the distance of, what 10ft maximum??
    The best story re: the Bob Rae photo is that he’s not on the bus tour but doing what most Ontarians are doing these days…..enjoying summer and the hell with pretty much everything else.

  2. Marc says:

    If it’s too intrusive for Big Brother to make the guy fill in a census form, it’s surely as bad to make him wear a life jacket, no?

  3. Darrell says:

    Last time I saw pics of Rae on a lake he was naked with Rick Mercer. He does look better dressed, he should consider wearing a life jacket for his own safety.

  4. Paul R. Martin says:

    I am sure that the Conservatives appreciate your advice Warren: however, Rae just isn’t worth their time. Ignatief with his bus, his bike and his boots have given them a more inviting target. It is nice to see a politician relaxing and enjoying himself. It sure beats the contrived goings on in Question Period.

  5. Zachary Scott Smith says:

    It has been reported that the choice not to wear a life jacket came from the OLO and his COS.

  6. Darcy says:

    The boats still tied to the dock, so no worries.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:


      Some people have managed to drown in an inch of water. Have you checked out Question Period lately?

  7. Iris Mclean says:

    Is that little boat rated for such large looking motor?
    Is Bob licensed to operate such a craft?
    Is Bob licensed fish in Ontario?
    So many questions.

    • NS says:

      HA! 15HP motor. Please.

      Graham Watt is bang on, and the choice is with the boater/passenger.

      This photo is a non-issue.

  8. Sandra says:

    Looks like a photo-op to me. Hair coiffed, no life-jacket, no hat, tidy clean boat.

    Maybe he was just posing for a family shot.

    He sure doesn’t look a fisherman in this pic.

  9. William says:

    I’m more shocked with the choice of motor. As a life-long Merc man, Bob disappoints me….

  10. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    Perhaps you should let it cut loose in the direction of Ottawa…

  11. nitroglycol says:

    Have to say, that is a beauty of a boat.

  12. The_Iceman says:

    Is it now safe to assume that you have joined Team Rae?

  13. CaligulaJones says:

    “…the HMCS Quebec”?

    Can we PLEASE get some decent proofreaders at the Ceeb?

  14. Dave says:

    Once he unties the boat from the dock he will put on the life jacket.

  15. Dave says:

    I think that Bob will put on a life jacket once he unties the boat from the dock.

  16. Greg says:

    “Bob Rae stars in the erotic man-thriller…. Four! Stroke! Johnson!”

  17. Michael S says:

    I’m sure they’re upset that Bob is showing off his big Johnson.
