Dick Cheney has cancelled a talk in Toronto because, he says, "Canada is too dangerous."

his is the ultimate chicken hawk, who had 5 deferrals from serving in Vietnam, and who sent thousands of US troops to protect his oil in Iraq, where 30,000 were seriously wounded and nearly 5000 killed.

But, you know, he might be scalded by Tim Horton's coffee or fatally confused when drivers stop to let jaywalkers cross the road.

Let's take up a collection to send him to speak in Baghdad, which he made dangerous for millions of Iraqis.



Dick Cheney Has Canceled a Talk in Toronto Because, He Says, "Canada Is Too Dangerous"

ormer U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney has cancelled an April appearance in Toronto citing concerns Canada is too dangerous.

"He felt that in Canada the risk of violent protest was simply too high," said Ryan Ruppert, president of promotions company Spectre Live Corp., which had booked Mr. Cheney for an April 24 appearance at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

In September, Mr. Cheney was speaking at a private club in Vancouver when protesters massed outside the front door harassing ticket holders and in one instance, choking a security guard. The former vice-president was reportedly held inside the building for more than seven hours as Vancouver Police in riot gear dispersed the demonstrators.

"God forbid there was ever an emergency," said Ruppert, noting Cheney's history of heart problems.

Ticket holders can either bring in their tickets for a refund, or go to a replacement talk by author Mark Steyn.
