So here's us, on the raggedy edge.

The Lies that Politicians Tell

Everyone knows politicians tell lies, and the people who want to be politicians are worse than the ones who already are. Danieal Igali made Canada proud by winning a gold after immigrating to Canada.

Jesse Johl was fond of talking about how he and his family were Daniel’s first family when he came to Canada; I always thought it was a bit odd that Igali would never show up at any events, and that these guys couldn’t get ahold of him to save their lives.

With the announcment that Igali intends to open a school in his native Nigeria, this comes up:

As he struggled to adjust to his new life, Igali met his guardian angel - a mother and school principal named Maureen Matheny.

So I guess that answers it. More lies, half truths and omissions. Unfortunately entirely predictable.
