Have a political press conference in a church. You get softball questions asked in hushed, respectful tones. Even better if your guy is surrounded by some ministers (the god kind, not the cabinet kind) and a few women war veterans.That's what happened this morning at a Vic Toews presser at Holy Trinity Anglican downtown. It was nothing more than a pre-election event so Toews could talk tough about the looming vote, gussied up with a $25,000 donation to the lovely old church's stained glass window restoration.That church just sapped us of our cynicism. We couldn't needle and interrupt and eye-roll with a reverend looking on. No one even hinted around the edges of Toews recent personal issues or his flirtation with a judicial appointment. Smart move, Tories.
