Veteran Conservative (Reform) MP Advises Colleagues On Dating 'Biker Chicks'

Alberta Conservative MP Myron Thompson had an amusing and unexpected piece of advice for the hundred plus investment professionals gathered in his riding on Monday for the annual conference of the Investment Industry Association of Canada in Banff.

"I would advise you not to date any biker chicks," he told them, in reference to the one-time girlfriend of former Conservative cabinet minister Maxime Bernier, who resigned after erstwhile flame Julie Couillard revealed classified information had been left in her home. "And," Mr. Thompson cautioned in his welcome address at the investment industry conference, "if you do, don't leave any documents behind!"

I remember that guy. Wow, he actually has a sense of humour (well, sort of). Who'd have thunk it?

hahaha! thats pretty funny!

Never thought I would hear Myron Thompson joke about that.

It's not just the hat that draws a similarity to Eugene Whelan; it's also the size of the person.

There's a difference between them that's striking: Whelan has a parliamentary legacy and Thompson has none.

Can anyone out there point out to one achievement of Thompson's in the parliament that is his legacy?

David .. in terms of Thompson's legacy ... I think we could say the following"
-he never dated a 'biker chick'
-he was never thrown out of Cabinet

that's all I can come up with!

That was hilarious - thanks for making me laugh for the first time in a month Leftdog!
