Isn't this discrimination?

What makes Mr. Floatie any different from other elected representatives?

Mr. Floatie - a brown, smiling lump of feces - will have to take a break from his environmental concerns Tuesday as he heads to British Columbia Supreme Court.

The costumed crusader for sewage treatment is being challenged by the city of Victoria because of his nomination as a candidate for the position of mayor in the upcoming municipal election.

Mr. Floatie is a high-profile and tireless reminder of Victoria's practice of pumping raw sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

The man inside the costume, James Skwarok, says the city appears to be taking issue with his candidacy because only real persons can run.

It's an objection he finds moot.

"Of course I'm not a real person, I'm a big piece of poop."

[..] Woodland says he can personally attest that Mr. Floatie is not a real person.

"He is a costume character."
Regards to John Galt for the tip.

Paul Martin maintains he never fondled Mr. Floatie

The second picture is the single most best photo of Mr. Dithers I have ever seen!

... odd that someone who is worried about this issue should pose as "Mr. Floatie", since as far as I know not a single turd, tampon, or bacteria has ever been found floating in the waters around Victoria's sewer outflow pipe ... but I think that Freud would have the best explanation of this particular stunt ...
