Columnist Fascinated by Mormons

Stockwell Day has been causing quit a stir across the country. With his moral stance on gays, abortion, gun ownership and capital punishment, he's been a favourite target for the media. Even though his political agenda as the new leader of the official opposition has been more economical than social, the media can't help but paint the former Christian school principal and youth minister in a redneck colour.

Some of the media are pleased with his young and fresh face and welcome the opportunity for some change, be it economic or moral.

Elizabeth Nickson, a columnist for the National Post is such a person. She's confident her late father would be "twirling around on a cloud" at the political progress Day has made. She, in fact, likes Christian herself. She is quoted as having "preferences, for instance I favour Charismatics, but I adore blood-of-the-lamb Baptists too and confess to being fascinated by Mormons."

It's from this stance than she thinks "Stockwell and his crew...are probably quite a lot of fun."
