The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

Blackmore blogs on his court victory

On his blog "Share the Light," Winston Blackmore has posted a brief answer to the question: "Is there anything you would like to say about the Court decision yesterday?"

Only to say that I am thankful for this win. I thank God, and I thank Joe and Bruce and their team. I thank all the people that have called in their support. I thank Blair, John, Chuck, and the host of others who were with us in the beginning and pulling for us all the way through.

I thank my family for enduring this trying summer. This was our first win and we needed it. Today we are once again proud to be Canadians. Oh yea, thanks to you media guys that actually wrote a fair story. I hope you don’t get fired!
