Transcript of offensive Lukiwski comments send shockwaves through Harper government

The shocking revelation of homophobic comments by Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski is sending shockwaves through two Conservative governments today.

The video, which appears to have been shot on the night of the Saskatchewan leaders' debate during the 1991 election contains a revolting exchange between Conservative Party staffers, including Lukiwski. Particularly offensive among the truly tasteless remarks, is a brazenly homophobic comment by Lukiwski.

The transcript is here:

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You’re shooting whatever you got there.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Is it okay to focus in?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It just takes a little getting used to.
TOM LUKIWSKI: Oh, where’d that come from? The company? See, the red light’s on again.
UNIDENTFIIED MALE: Yeah, it should be.
TOM LUKIWSKI: Well, it wasn’t on when you came in here. It was on and then it went off, eh.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Just in case you missed the first one, life in two. Leanne –
LEANNE: Hello.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, I had it turned off.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You did not.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I did.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I see the light flashing, you ass.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, I see, okay. Now, Jeffrey, what is it that you are doing at this moment?

TOM LUKIWSKI: Well, as we say in tour, I may be old, but I’m fucking A, eh.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And who is this A person?
TOM LUKIWSKI: Well, let me put it to you this way. There’s A’s and there’s B’s. The A’s are guys like me, the B’s are homosexual faggots with dirt on their fingernails that transmit diseases. (INAUDIBLE)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, quit talking about Jeff like that.
TOM LUKIWSKI: Well, John Bergen and I had a little discussion and I’d like to tell you that it’s going to be out in our campaign literature real soon, watch for it (INAUDIBLE).

DENISE DRESSLER: Ab-sa-fucking-lutely nobody. By the way, whose camera is this?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: So, Jeffery, what is this woman missing?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do you mean, what is she missing?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, shut up. If you say breasts, I’ll pop you both.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I didn’t say breasts, you did.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What was this about?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I – I can see your breasts very clearly.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Let’s see if we can get them on the screen.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, Dan, would you stop?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, thank you, just a little profile indicated there was something there.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It’s got a zoom lens.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Let’s see here. What have we got going on on this screen?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You’re talking about –
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, it’s top secret.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That’s right. We’re talking about friends.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We’d show you, but then we’d have to kill you.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I’m sorry, Mr. Kennedy has left the building, but watchnow as we break for news.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: For the record, this week as of today, July – or – it’s July –
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: July?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: -- October, whatever’s today, October 6 or whatever, this third week of the election campaign is going to be the telltale signs where we’re going to win it.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And how many are we going to win by?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We’re going to win 42 seats.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don’t think we’re going to win – how many did you say?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Forty-two.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don’t think we’re going to win 42 at all.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do you think? (INAUDIBLE)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How many do you think we will win?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don’t know.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, take your best shot.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don’t know very much about politics. How much –
(LAUGHER)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How’d you get your job? Who do you know?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I’m going right now to visit him.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yeah. I know a lot, but not a lot of – not a lot of about that.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hi.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: All right. Good to see you.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: She says, “Do you know Kathy Peters?” “Well” –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Your comments on the debate tonight.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I predict that Grant Devine will smash the living dog shit out of that spineless political playboy and kick the balls right off of that hard-headed slut Lynda.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Miss, Miss? Miss, what do you have to say about the debate tonight? Your prediction? Do you have something to say or no?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What me?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, I’d like to know how you feel off the wall first of all and, yes, I think Grant Devine will do very well tonight.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you have a prediction for the outcome of the election, ma’am? For the outcome of the election?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The outcome?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What about Lynda’s balls?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It’s going to be tight. I don’t think Lynda has balls.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, big ones, big chubby suckers like this.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And you, sir?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I – I do have a comment though. I thought it was really interesting how the media picked up on her being outside a food place or the food bank or whatever, and they gave her shit for – for grandstanding, I believe it was. When Roy Romanow did the exact same thing about a week before in front of – I think it was a children’s thing. They were talking about food, not having enough food, and that was also, I believe, in Saskatoon. I was wondering why Romanow didn’t get kicked when she did.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They’re treating Lynda unfairly; I understand that. Okay.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This is for --
KATHY YOUNG: This is for da boss.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Okay, for posterity, ma’am, do you have any comments before the debate begins?
KATHY YOUNG: I already gave my comments already.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Before the debate begins here, what would you predict?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Grant’s going –
KATHY YOUNG: Da boss.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Da boss.
KATHY YOUNG: Da boss.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Okay, and – and do you have a prediction for the outcome of the election?
KATHY YOUNG: About 43 minus seven.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Minus seven.
KATHY YOUNG: Oui.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That makes like 33.
KATHY YOUNG: To da boss.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Da boss.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And you, miss?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Are you talking to Kimberly or you’re talking to me? I say --
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Get a life.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: -- as far as tonight is concerned, yes, I agree with these folks. It’s --
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Da boss.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He kicked red butt and he’s going to kick that Grit butt too.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Okay, now we’ll go to Connie.
(LAUGHTER)
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Da bears.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Da bears.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And, Connie, would you like –
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Actually Jeffrey was going to talk to you now.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It’s the only thing that doesn’t give me a hangover, so I have to
drink –
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi.
UNIDENTIED MALE: I was looking for her and (INAUDIBLE) the screen and said
nothing.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Well, she’s a ventriloquist.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The bears.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The bears.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And what’s -- do you have a prediction for the election?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The bears.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No numbers?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, 60, like 61 for the PCs and Roy
Romanow might get a seat; other than that it’ll be like – maybe
it’ll just be 61 for the – what have you got, 65?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: (INAUDIBLE) on his head.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Who?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: (inaudible) Romanow?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That’s correct, so no, he won’t make it either.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Sixty-six.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, 62, and four for independents here, yes, independents. Do
you want to see a menu?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi, Gail.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Did Grant leave, Jeff?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, no, not me.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Miss, miss, do you have any comments on the election?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: On the debate tonight?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you have any comments?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: None at all.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you have an education?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Ah.
TOM LUKIWSKI: Well, can you give her the tour? Come here. Give her the tour.
Just a minute now. We want to – we want to know --
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Wait a minute. We’re talking to a 40-year-old, a man with some
(INAUDIBLE).
TOM LUKIWSKI: We want to tell you exactly what we think from the tour
standpoint. We think the tour is going fucking A.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Fucking A.
TOM LUKIWSKI: And we think the debate’s going to go fucking A.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Fucking A.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And predictions for the outcome of the election?
TOM LUKIWSKI: Well, we think the Tories are going to do fucking A.
OTHERS: Fucking A.
TOM LUKIWSKI: We’re kind of stuck on that, you know.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, this guy’s the media, eh. You can’t trust a word he says.
JOHN SCRABA: You’re tipped sideways there, that’s okay.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, well, I’ll just get it that way then.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, no, you’re in a proper frame here. I got it right. Here we go.
All right. Now, do you have comments on the debate, sir?
JOHN SCRABA: Certainly. We haven’t seen it yet.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, well, what do you predict?
JOHN SCRABA: Oh, predict an overwhelming victory and defeat for the other
socialist hordes.

person.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Want my honest opinion?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, please, yeah, your honest opinion.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I think – I think you’ve got to pan over to Peter Varley’s picture
here.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We have – we have several – several events of Peter Varley’s
picture.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Peter Varley’s picture depicts exactly what I wish to say about –
basically Grant Devine blew them out of their shoes; that’s what
I think.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thank you, ma’am. And, sir, sir –
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That’s how I feel (INAUDIBLE).
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And, sir, sir?
BRAD WALL: Well, I’m with her. She’s the boss so if she says we kicked their
butt steaks, we did.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Now, ma’am –
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Butt steaks big time.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Now, ma’am, would you undo the top button, please?
TAMMY WALL: I have no buttons. Wait, wait, here. Here – there.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There we go. There we go, there we go; all right.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That’s cruel.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No button here either. And did you see the debate, ma’am?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Get Brad’s reaction to the --
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Did you see the debate?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I certainly did.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And what did you think about it?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Well, you know, all you got to do is let Lynda talk long enough
and she makes a fucking idiot out of herself, that’s all I have to say.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Ladies, ladies. John Bergen isn’t here so while you’re –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We’re going to bring him here.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And, Ms. --
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Black or white.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What did you think about the debate?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What did you think about the debate?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The debate was wonderful. I think our boss won that debate big time --
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: -- because he’s so wonderful and –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How many seats are we going to win?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We’re going to win 37.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thirty-seven seats’ prediction?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Thirty-seven.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And – and your prediction?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I say thirty-six for sure, 36.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thirty-six for sure.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It’s black or white. We are winning.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I’m going to have my eyes lifted before the end –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, I sure as hell hope so.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I am. I’m very objective.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And what did you think of the debate?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (INAUDIBLE) .
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The boss – we did wonderful –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Wonderful CTV.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: -- quite well.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And what’s your prediction for election night?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: All the way. We’re going to the top. I wouldn’t be here if we
weren’t going to the top; right?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How many seats? How many seats?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Big time, big time.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That’s the problem –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Forty-six.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Forty-six. Forty-six?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Now, luckily –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Is 46 good? Forty-six would be good?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Forty-six, and I think –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And your – your assessment, sir, of the debate tonight?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: On the debate tonight? Yes, well, I think – I think --
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You’re starting to sound like Lynda now.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think Mr. Devine was good. I think Ms. Haverstock was good. I think Mr. Romanow was – Mr. Who?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What does Roma-know?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Nothing.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thirty-eight seats.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thirty-eight seats.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I said 46.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Forty-six what?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Senator Berntson, do you have a reaction tonight?
ERIC BERNSTON: Well, number one, I’m not Senator Berntson. I’m an anonymous guy that –
(LAUGHER)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He’s with the government and he’s here to help.
ERIC BERNSTON: -- that doesn’t know anything about any of this stuff, so all I’ll say is fucking A.
(LAUGHTER)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: So don’t quote me on it.
ERIC BERNSTON: No, don’t quote me, yeah.
(INAUDIBLE)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, go ahead. No, he’s not –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (INAUDIBLE)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Go ahead.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Go ahead.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: (INAUDIBLE)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We are so.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yeah. Excuse me.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Have you had my opinion yet?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, I have.
BRAD WALL: “Well, I’m the big gipper, don’t mess with me. I’m the baddest rapper this side of DC with my best girl Nancy as my spouse,rappin’ to you from that big white house. B-b-b-b Bonzo, b-b-b-b Bonzo.” That’s the white house rap.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Cool.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The zoom is --
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Is on one of these buttons here.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It should be on right there.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Nice to meet you, John.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, no, no, I –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The zoom should be right on there.
BRAD WALL: It should be on the trigger somewhere. Push.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, here it is, right here. Your zoom is right here, Brad --
BRAD WALL: Oh, yeah.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: -- hold it.
BRAD WALL: Okay, we’re walking with Jason Wall who is sporting the new San Jose Sharks’ jersey. Jason is walking back to visit with PeterVarley. Immediately following the debate between the Honourable Grant Devine and others, the debate, of course, which the Premier kicked major butt on, by the way.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Come in here, come in here, come in here. Are coming around to everybody, getting your opinion of how the Premier did today --
BRAD WALL: Filmed for posterity so please look at the camera.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: -- how the Premier did today in his debate against Roy Romanowand Lynda Haverstock. How do you feel he did?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Tonight’s televised Leader’s Debate has exposed the – Premier Grant Devine said he watched in wonder as the two slack-jawed -- in fact, as the two leaders bickered over words, quotes and interpretations.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Slack-jawed?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Like this he stood. That’s all very interesting.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (INAUDIBLE) sure we got that. Please, how did he stand? Okay, good.
JOHN SCRABA: Hey, hey, you with the camera.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Good night.
JOHN SCRABA: Au revoir.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Au revoir.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Ciao.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Excuse me. Can I finish my news --
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, go ahead.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: “That’s all very interesting as high school debates go,” Devine said, “but we’ve got a province to run here. The question remains who has a plan for Saskatchewan?” Devine said it was evident on several occasions that neither Roy Romanow, nor Lynda Haverstock, had a complete grasp of the issues they were asked to address, particularly on agriculture and economic policy. “I have a strong feeling they didn’t understand what they were saying, right here,” Devine said. “In other circumstances, I would just sit back and enjoy it. Tonight, I found it a little frightening.” Devine said he would leave it to viewers to determine the winner. “All I ask is for people to think about three things,” Devine said, to think about what they heard, to think about the personalities they saw and to reflect on the fundamental question, who has a plan for Saskatchewan?” For further information, vote Grant Devine.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thank you very much, Peter Varley. I really appreciate –
MR. VARLEY: Thank you, thank you very much.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And continue on with your works.
MR. VARLEY: Yes, yes.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah, x-rated. Ken, (INAUDIBLE) was that? X-rated?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Plastic cheap shit imitation crap.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Pan -- pan on the woman.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Where is that picture?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Always pan to the woman. Pan to the woman always.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Where is that picture where my thighs are really big?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thighs? It’s on – you’ve got to hit the button –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It’s on.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Said the bride to the groom.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It’s on.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: A major fucking victory.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Lynda made –
JOAN BERNTSON: She made one statement on abortion, you know. She made one statement on abortion earlier, but I can’t remember what it was, but it was everyone in Saskatchewan cares about the lives --
(INAUDIBLE – ALL TALKING TOGETHER)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Major fucking victory.
UNIDENIFIED MALE: And I’m going to go to every red in town.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh.

KATHY YOUNG: Why not?
BRAD WALL: I never voted for him, but I –
KATHY YOUNG: Why not?
BRAD WALL: Before. I see him on TV tonight after Helen fixed me dinner and I tell you I like Grant Devine. Roy Romanow got his head up his ass . I don’t even know how he walks upright with his head so far up his ass and I’ll you --
KATHY YOUNG: Mr. (INAUDIBLE), how do you think he walks --
BRAD WALL: I’m not – I’m not kidding. So the bottom line is this –

If only they knew.

Shockwave? I doubt it. Contrition on the part of Mr. Lukiwski for stupid remarks made 18 years ago? I am sure.
For the majority of Canadians this will be seen for what it is; another attempt by the supercilious minions of the lost cause party to muck-rake. As the NDP continues to sink beneath the waves of public opinion their hair-shirted, holier-than-thou adherents will try to grasp any straw that will allow them to smear an opponent. (Remember the porn on the Conservative lap top)All the while they will be crying over the conspiracy of the right to bring American style mud slinging into the body politic.
Instead of trying to form an alliance of the left so that they can defeat the government they continue to hide behind the Liberal ineptitude, letting them take the heat while their witch-hunters throw rocks at everybody. As they watch the Green Party overtake them they continue to ferret out any instance of perceived misconduct. I hope the Conservatives don't adopt this tactic or I am in real trouble. I once made the mistake of voting for the NDP and saying good things about them. Of course, we all have incidents of brain cramp...unless you're an NDP saint in which case you never stray from the straight and narrow.

Attacking imagined motive is not a defence ... or at least it's not much of one.
