Ice Fishing Contest

How to bait a Canadian politician


The Canadian election was too close to call. Neither the Conservative candidate nor the Liberal candidate had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting & court challenges, but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. It was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the winner - the candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election.

After much back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Manitoba. There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties.

At the end of the first day, Steven Harper returned to the starting line and he had ten fish. Soon, Stephane Dion returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having another “bad hair” day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day.

At the end of the second day, Harper came in with 20 fish and Dion came in again with none. That evening, Jack Layton got together secretly with Dion and said, “Dion, I think Steven Harper is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and don’t even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.”

The next night (after Steven Harper returns with 50 fish), Layton said to Dion, “Well, tell me, how is Steven Harper cheating?”

Dion replied, “Jack, you’re not going to believe this, but he’s cutting holes in the ice!”
