Just when you thought Rob Anders would never surprise you again, a new video is presenting a fresh take on the controversial Tory MP. A zoological take.
Titled "Conservative Hinterland Who's Who: The Rob Anders," the parody piece touches upon many of Anders' greatest hits, from suggesting Thomas Mulcair helped "hasten" Jack Layton's death to calling Nelson Mandela a communist.
Inspired by the second-most Canadian PSA campaign around (Heritage Minutes for the win), the video is the latest production from Deep Rogue Ram, a collaboration between Heather Libby, managing editor of the climate change activism website TckTckTck.org, and Kai Nagata, a former CTV journalist who made a splash last year after posting a blog about why he quit his job. Libby and Negata have both blogged for The Huffington Post Canada.
We're hoping Anders isn't the last MP to get the Hinterland treatment. Share your suggestions on who should be featured next in the comments below.

War Of 1812 And 'Islamic Terrorism'

Premier Alison Redford
During the 2003 Calgary West riding nomination, in which he was up against now Alberta Premier Alison Redford, Anders said he had the win in the bag, unless Calgary lawyer Redford, "got some magic support base of people who like feminist lawyers."
Calgary West Riding Association
Rob Anders has been embroiled in at least two party nomination fights, in which his riding association and others running for Anders’ seat have claimed the party has ‘stacked the odds’ in favour of the incumbent, while also refusing to disclose the reasons why other Tories wanting to run for the seat have been unable to do so. In 2010, 24 of the 32-member riding board quit over one of those disputes.
Rob Anders was booted off a veterans committee this spring. Anders called committee members NDP "hacks" who praised Vladimir Putin after they claimed publicly the Calgary MP fell asleep during committee presentations. The members he attacked are Canadian Forces members who volunteer their own time and money to help.
Asleep in the Commons
Nov 17, 2012. Anders is famously caught on TV sleeping and head-bobbing during House of Commons question period. The video goes viral.
Probably his most infamous moment - Rob Anders calls Nelson Mandela a Communist and a terrorist and is the only Parliamentarian to vote against making the South African human rights leader and former president an honourary Canadian in 2001.
'Pull The Trigger'
In 2010, in a card supporting Canadian troops, Anders wrote: "When in doubt, pull the trigger." The Department of National Defence distanced itself from the remarks.
"All I can say on citizenship at birth is that Australia requires at least one parent to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident for the child to qualify. It is something we should consider as well." On preventing children in Canada from having automatic citizenship.
In 2001, then Veterans' Affairs Minister John McCallum famously refers to Anders as being politically "... to the right of Atilla the Hun."
