    Woman Abuse Council of Toronto!


    What was wrong with the Toronto Council against Woman Abuse?

    What are some amusing/funny or just plain wrong acronyms have you come across? I know there are quite a few out there.

    That is a pretty thoughtless oversight.

    Remember when they were making the new fascist party and it was the "Conservative Reform Alliance Party" or CRAP?

    CREEP – Committee to Re-elect the President was something under Nixon. It's in 'All the President's Men'.

    Hang on, maybe that *is* appropriate.

    Because with "Toronto Council..." it makes an association to the city, as being a municipally supported and paid-for program.

    Any name including "Toronto" would do that.

    Yeah and they didn't notice until *after* they made it public and started getting ridiculed for it.

    I don't remember what it stood for, but I think it was CRAAP.

    The party's full name was originally the Canadian Conservative Reform Alliance (CCRA). It was the media who added a "P" to the end by referring to them as the Canadian Conservative Reform Alliance Party.

    Since the CCRAP moniker seemed to stick, the party subsequently changed their name to the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance (CRCA).
