Len Goucher smudges out Tim Outhit's face 

Petty politics in Bedford.

The above photo comes from Len Goucher's website. Goucher, a former MLA who was defeated last election by a 18-year-old kid, is part of the old Progressive Conservative cabal in Bedford, which seems to muck up every endeavour it touches, including the Children's Safety Village, the bubble arena and Goucher's own gadget-heavy expense account. Recall that:
Over a three-year period former Progressive Conservative MLA and cabinet minister Len Goucher filed expense claims for five digital cameras, 11 computers, 12 printers and four video recorders. He even expensed an Xbox 360 Dance Dance Revolution Universe game.

After taxes, Goucher’s overall spending over three years, was $43,982.27.

Which leads to the question: Did Goucher use that taxpayer-provided computer equipment to smudge out the faces of his non-PC political rivals? That's Tim Outhit, over on the right in the photo.
