What they said

While watching CPAC yesterday I heard something quite amusing. However, now that I check Hansard I wonder if I should get my ears checked. I thought I heard Conservative Richard Harris make a Star Wars reference, a sure sign an election is near. However, Hansard recorded what I heard as light sabre to actually be lifesaver (see third and fourth paragraphs). Luckily the quote is still amusing so I will post it and encourage others to post similar examples of things misheard in the House, or samples of politicians mixing their metaphors.

    You thought he said, “…the Liberals are drowning in their own cesspool of corruption, they find a light sabre with the NDP.”?

    I’m just surprised to learn that there is a Conservative MP named Richard Harris.

    “While some limited portions of the NDP agenda may be somewhat appealing, Canadians know that entrusting the public purse to the NDP is about as smart as giving kids caffeine before bedtime. They will tax our energy all night and keep on asking for more.” – Mrs. Lynne Yelich (Blackstrap, CPC)

    Mr. Art Hanger (Calgary Northeast, CPC): Mr. Speaker, the whole Liberal caucus should be choked over the comments from that man. That Liberal caucus member stated that he felt the restrictions facing Homolka–

    Some hon. members: Oh, oh!
