Here's my favourite:
I can only assume that Jack Layton is as outraged as I am. 191 fatalities this year (compared to 66 military deaths), many of them young Canadians, is completely unacceptable. And that's just one province. This is not what Parliament signed up for when we permitted cars on our roads. Canada should stick to its traditional transportation role of riding bicycles and leave the driving to our aggressive American neighbours. The freedom provided by the automobile isn't worth the loss of life, and I expect Mr. Layton to call for Canada's immediate withdrawal from the roads. Some freedoms are simply not worth dying for.

Well done, John!
Actually, Jack Layton likely would support a car ban. I understand he doesn't own a car, and bikes everywhere. And think about the carbon credits Canada would accumulate!
Win-win for sure.
