Fundraiser to send Frank Chauvin the postage to return his Order of Canada

Further to my post about melodramatic anti-choicer Frank Chauvin, whose court challenge disputing the Morgentaler Order of Canada was kicked to the curb on Friday:

After months of being included in the long(er than eight) list of OC medal returnees, Chauvin says he’ll finally return the medal:

“I kept the medal until this hearing was over and now it’s going back,” said Frank Chauvin, a devout Catholic who received the Order of Canada in 1987 in recognition of his work with children in Haiti.

Right.   And the court’s ruling was a big surprise, no?

The court found that Chauvin did not have standing to bring the case either in support of his personal interests or as a matter of public interest.

“I didn’t expect one judge to go against another judge,” said Chauvin.

“It (the ruling) was no surprise, as far as I’m concerned.”

If Chauvin really “didn’t expect one judge to go against another judge”, and the ruling was “no surprise”, then why in the wide wide world of sports would he waste the court’s time (and taxpayer dollars) on this bullshit court challenge?  Isn’t that what’s known as “frivolous litigation”?

What’s really no surprise is the fetus fetishizing hypocrisy of it all.  If Chauvin isn’t completely sincere about wanting to return the medal, and I wouldn’t blame him for that since he earned it fair and square, he should stop bleating about it and just keep the thing.  But if he means business and he’s just having trouble coming up with the postage, I’m sure we could raise the $20 it would cost to Express Post the thing.  (There, I just looked in my purse and met our fundraiser’s quota already.)

So… Come on Frank, let’s have it… the medal, Frank… give it up… come on…!!

UPDATE: Whoops!  BCL reports that Chauvin is being a little coy about his intentions.  Come on, Frank, give it here… come on… come on…

    He should return it solely on the basis that he’s just another fucking conspiracy theory moron.

    SR – :lol: Can’t say I disagree. It’s too bad — it sounds like he did some good work and deserved the honour. But geez, drama queen :roll:

    Well you know even if he returns it he’d still have to live with the knowledge that he shares a country and citizenship with Morgenthaler.

    So how about making the fundraiser be to raise the money for postage to send Chauvin (perfect name for a bigot) somewhere else.

    I’m thinking Uganda.

    RB – That sounds like an excellent place for him. He also might be right in his element with the Taliban in Afghanistan.
