A while back, Secnarf the Independent Rhino candidate from North Pelham took over my face book wall during the controversy over the opening of the DSBN Academy in Niagara. I thought I would check in with her again because of the upcoming Federal election. This is a transcript of our interview.
Francie: Let's start with your political affiliation. You do know that the Rhinoceros Party of Canada is defunct?
Secnarf: It exists in the hearts of all true Canadians.
Francie: Those old enough to remember it I suppose.
Ayway, there is a rumour going around North Pelham that you bought a cigarette from Betty McGlashan for a looney so that you could look tough like Minister of International Cooperation, Bev Oda.
Secnarf: It is a lie. I offered her a looney but she gave it to me for free.
Francie: Okay. Let's talk about your policy.
You have said that if elected you will allow women to vote twice to make up for the years when they weren't allowed to vote at all and you have promised to take all of the calories out of chocolate cake.
Do you have anything else to add to your platform as we move into the next Federal election?
Secnarf: Yes, if I am elected I promise that I will move the head office of Bell Canada to North Pelham so that the CEO and other top Bell Canada executives can enjoy the same dial up Internet service that we rural Canadians enjoy now.
Francie: Why are you dressed like a pirate?
Secnarf: I'm not dressed like a pirate.
Francie: Not only are you dressed like a pirate, your t-shirt says, "Pirate Party of Canada."
Secnarf: (holds up a mirror) Jeesh. This happens whenever I talk about Bell Canada.
Francie: Well I have to run. Thanks for your time, Secnarf.
We'll be in touch throughout the election.
Any last words for today?
Secnarf: Yes. Can I have my pirate hat back?
The only candidate who looks like a cabinet minister
