Grit paparrazi stalking Tory MPs
OTTAWA -- A war of words has erupted between the federal Liberal party youth wing and some backbench Tory MPs over a candid-camera contest launched last week.

The young Liberals say they are looking for recent pictures of Conservative MPs who are rarely seen in public because they have a history of stirring up controversy that could embarrass their party.

"As much as (Prime Minister) Stephen Harper may try to keep these guys in the back, it's important that Canadians know that this is the real face of the Conservative party," said Richard Diamond, president of the Young Liberals of Canada.

The Liberals will give an iPod as a prize for the person who can offer the best picture of one of the seven Conservative MPs on their list -- Rob Anders, Cheryl Gallant, Rahim Jaffer, Collin Mayes, Bob Mills, Pierre Poilievre, and David Sweet. The contest runs until Sept. 4.
