Tories Suspend Communications Director

UPDATED 9/11 10:10 AM

Ryan Sparrow, Communications director for the Tories was suspended from the campaign indefinitely for making an inappropriate remark to a member of the media.

The comment in question was in response to a statement issued by the father of a Canadian soldier killed in action in Afghanistan. The father said that if Canada left Afghanistan before mission objectives were completed, that his son would have given his life in vain.

Sparrow's response when fed the quote was allegedly that the father was a supporter of the Liberals and Michael Ignatieff.

Good on the Tories for acting on the comments so quickly, we're trying to dig up the comments AFTER the fact.

I love that.. "suspended from the campaign".

As in "Shhh.. keep quiet until we're elected, okay?"
