Chuck Cadman


A little history for those of you not familiar with the story of the late Chuck Cadman. His teenage boy got whacked in the old cowboy corner of Sliverville. At one time you were guaranteed to find yourself in a spot of trouble walking around with the long hair-do Chuck's kid had. Chuck then rode his campaign to put snotty young violent Sliverville rednecks in prison all the way to a seat in the House of Parliament. For those of you not familiar with Canada's political institutions, the House of Parliament is roughly the equivalent to the heavy drinking Satanic Cult that runs America when it is not golfing.

Then one day a bunch of motherfuckers from the Punjab decided they wanted white Chuck out and their brown guy in. They stacked a nomination meeting with every Tom, Dick and Singh they could round up and Chuck was out fair and square. That is the way Christian society used to run political meetings until a fair amount of us became philosophically advanced enough to reject religion, voting or both, thereby hindering our power to stack meetings and nominate our kind of folk to represent us back in Ottawa.

But even though those of us with a Christian heritage could mostly not really give a shit about who our member of Parliament is, it pissed off a lot of people that the Hindoos had kicked a white man out of a job. That's how Chuck Cadman got to be elected as an Independent - he was the White Man's Revenge Candidate.

And now he has become something of a God for not accepting a huge bribe from Stephen Harper's Conservative Party henchmen when they needed his vote to force an election a few years back. There are not a lot of legends from the north end of Sliverville - a Hells Angel or two, Trooper and Chuck Cadman.

Speaking of drunks:
The present story goes that Cadmon was offered a "one million dollar life insurance policy" for defecting. No legitimate insurance company would take out such a policy on a man dying of cancer. Perhaps it was being offered via the "Mulroney and Schrieber Assurance Company". Lots of luck on the widder collecting. Seems like a bribe that could fairly easily be refused because it is such obvious bullshit. Let's see how the story develops.

The insurance policy bit is strange indeed. Any insurance company willing to issue a policy on Cadman would probably insure the case of Patagonias I just got started on.

Thanks Beer.

Seems his wife and his daughter are doing their end to keep the legend in print.

The 'insurance policy' is just a cut out to launder the bribe.

Yes, any insurance company would issue the policy provided the premium up front was close to one million.
They would reap the 8 to 15% on that sum until the payout is made post mortem which might take up to two or three years.

It's how corporate whores like the CPC work, sleazy and unimaginative.

Hey Beer,

Sorry to go off topic but I think you like this guy's story and his wordsmithing....scroll down to the one about a trip to Bay Meadows.

Gazz...thanks for the tip on the great blog. I bet a day at the races is an exquisite experience for someone recently released from jail. I hear America has now exceeded its goal of imprisoning 1% of its population. Too bad it is the wrong 1%.

You're welcome Mr. B&H - and congrats on the big win.

(You know, I get the feeling if John had a dog like Hammer he just might have an easier time of it - there's a whole lot of dog walking room in those miles of bayshore marshes).

It's only an alleged rumour but sleuths should look up CGI and see if they can connect any dots between the Harper Conservatives and the alleged $1 million life insurance policy.
