Wow! This is harsh even by Mr. Mandryk's standards:
If it truly was the New Democrats' goal to portray Norris as pompous and idiotic in this committee, their greatest ally in this effort has been Norris himself.
Deliberately adopting a speaking style reminiscent of William Shatner on the bridge of the USS Enterprise, Norris has blithered on about Plato, Aristotle and dead trees casting a shadow on the province. No metaphor has gone untortured.
But while Norris's petulance in committee has served no purpose other than to annoy, insult and demean, it may be unfair to single him out
So to summarize, Norris is pompous, idiotic, blithering, annoying, insulting and demeaning.
Sounds about right
