In a performance that rivalled Hollywood's most dramatic weepies, Liberal MPP Mike Colle turned on the taps last week when the Tories reduced his puppy mill bill to dog chow, preferring a similar bill by Conservative MPP Julia Munro, a long-time breeder.

We'd just hate to be the ones who have to explain Enza to Myron Thompson and Rob Anders and, well, pretty much every other backwoods Alliance party member.
