Return of the Rhino’s

August 9th, 2007

I’m a long time fan of the Rhinoceros Party, and have lamented their absence from the landscape before (and here). For those who don’t know, The Rhinos roamed the Canadian political landscape from 1963 to 1993. In 1993 Parliament amended the election act to, well basically outlaw The Rhinos.

Well, they’re back. On Tuesday, Rhino Leader-shmeader, Brian (Godzilla) Salmi, announced he will run as a Rhino in the Sept. 17 federal byelection in Montreal’s Outremont riding. And they’re serious, they even have a real website, with links and pictures and things.

Personally, I’m getting in on the ground floor and joining this up and coming force in the political landscape.

Long Live the Rhino, and thank God we are getting some levity back into Canadian politics.
