This is unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!

It's bad enough that Mayors are charged with corruption, fraud and gangsterism.......NOW THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope he gets charged with animal cruelty, instead of just a slap on the wrist.

Here's an update:

"Update (4:20 p.m. EST): Huntingdon, Que., Mayor Stephane Gendron has written an apology for his comments on the CHOI Radio website.

In the long preamble to his apology, he claims that, in Quebec, 500,000 domestic animals are abandoned every year and that he has continuously called for a province-wide sterilization programs.
He said that his comments, from July 9, were greatly exaggerated and that the "black humour" was inappropriate and doesn't help advance the debate."

I don't find these comments made by Mayor Gendron 'EXAGGERATED' at all.

"First of all, cats have no business being in the road, if its a stray cat in the road, bang, I accelerate," he said recently during his French-language radio show, according to CTV News."

The Huffington Post had this even more disturbing quote from the same radio show.
The other day, I backed up on one, it was a newborn, he said on-air. Im sure he didnt feel anything. The pickup truck ran on it like nothing. I was so happy, yes! One less.

This is just MY opinion, but I feel he is just trying to cover his tracks, because this has been made public now.

It's perfect in its pattern actually.

Not only are many of Canada's mayor's corrupt...now we find some without souls. This buttplug of a mayor is evil.
