Harper's hair looks insane on a large-screen HD tv. What the heck is going on there? I've wondered about Tory's too--is that a toupee?
It is "theoretically possible" but unlikely - two of the examples given in the article were Czech Jews - i.e. Central European Jews, where they were much more assimilated and conversion was more common. It was practically unheard of in Bukovina a century ago, from where Karla's alleged "Jewish" ancestors hailed.
Peter C. Newman is a Czech Jew who came to Canada with his family in 1940 - and a Catholic priest actually did a "conversion" for the family, knowing that this was just to help them flee the country and not a true embrace of Catholicism.
He was right about the unfairness of the Catholic only school funding, too bad he went about it the wrong way. He should have proposed the complete opposite of what he did: merge the public and Catholic systems into a single secular system and leave religious education to private schools. I honestly think that any party leader who proposes that would have the support of most of the population.
That means if you put 25 random Torontonians in a room, Tory would only have a one-person lead over Ford (9 to 8). Not very inspiring.

Forum's last poll caused a mini-panic by showing Ford down only 2. New poll, Ford down 6, is consistent with its previous findings.
I broke down and watched Dougie & Karla interview, I think I lost several IQ points from the experience.
There must have been Dougie run ons and such, I'm sure the gag reel is thirty minutes. The question is who is not at least enticed by the smell of cheese and bacon but upset when you find out the cheese is from a can and the bacon is flavoured soy bits from a shaker.
I do give the Oscar nod to Karla for playing the StepFord Wife.
