Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Bezan & his horse Woody
Funny thing about You Tube. When you post a clip on the video sharing service, make sure you really, really want it there. Once it's out there, it's out there for good. See: Lap dance, teacher
We'll call it lesson learned for Selkirk-Interlake MP James Bezan, who posted a video this week slamming the gun registry and calling on MPs from other parties to vote to scrap it. Fair enough.
Bezan posted the video sometime early this week and it was quickly removed on Wednesday, but not before others had grabbed a copy, including yours truly. It's easy, just Google it.
Where the video gets a little odd isn't the fact he shot it while atop his horse named Woody - it's Bezan's (or perhaps his videographer's) decision to splice in "funny" little clips of himself, to further make his point.
I won't force you to watch the entire video, so I've separated those pieces out for your viewing pleasure:
If that wasn't enough, though ... here's the full video:

About Tyler Walsh
After a short but successful stint on CKND-TV's The Great Spelling Bee in 1993, Tyler Walsh knew the bright lights of television were in his future. That was before the World Wide Web came along. He lived the dream for five years, working as a news producer at Global Television in Winnipeg. Never one to back away from a challenge, Tyler left the TV business behind and joined the Winnipeg Free Press in 2008 as the company's first Multimedia Editor. He's worked with the online team and photo department to shape and grow the video product at winnipegfreepress.com, which now includes live streaming video, documentary features and live and interactive events from Canada's first News Café, which is where you'll find Tyler and other members of the online team. Feel free to drop by 237 McDermot Avenue and engage Tyler in conversation about one of three topics: Video editing, curling or Star Trek.
