Former NDP leadership candidate Ashton throws weight behind terror-supporting anti-Israel group A Canadian organization that has given vocal support to the terrorist organization Hezbollah is holding a fundraiser next week featuring NDP MP for Churchill riding in Manitoba, Niki Ashton. The deceptively-named Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East campaigns for a full boycott of Israel while sponsoring speakers who extol the supposed virtues of Hezbollah, which is listed by the Canadian and US governments as a terror group. This Thursday, at Montreal's Delta Hotel, Ashton will be the keynote speaker at the anti-Israel group's fundraiser called "Experiencing Arabia." Ms Ashton will be addressing the crowd in a face-covering burkah, only after receiving permission to speak from her closest male relative. As Israel is facing new threats to its civilian population from attacks by Hamas, Ms Ashton is showing where her sympathies lie...A covering over the face of Niki Ashton? That might not be such a great loss for Manitoba and all North Americans. It's not like she's going to be winning any lookalike contests any time soon, for Alaska fox Sarah Palin, or Alberta's Wildrose Party leader Daniele Smith.

Maybe burkas on some Western women not such a bad idea after all
Manitoba MP Niki Ashton plans to wear a black veil over her face next week to address gathering of Canadian leftists by Eric Dondero Manitoba doesn't seem like it would be a hotbed of far leftwing activity, but the Canadian province is the exact polar opposite of Alberta. Similar to its American neighbor Minnesota, Islamists and socialists control the provincial government. One MP Niki Ashton is taking Manitoba leftwing lunacy to a new level. Eye on a Crazy Planet blog reports that she will be wearing a burka to give a speech to an anti-Israel leftwing group next week.
