As promised to the island, Stephen Harper gave this rookie MP a cabinet post, putting her in charge of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Since then she has made one mistake after another, and has proven that she is simply not up to the job.
But even before making a mess of the portfolio, and shaming our country, she did not get off to a good start.
Not long after the election I read in her local paper that some of her constituents were upset with what they referred to as 'travel-gate'. Apparently, she was flying friends to Ottawa (at our expense) to conduct business that should have been conducted at home.
She did recently take a tofu pie in the face, and was able to laugh it off, so I'm sure she's a decent person, but she's in the wrong party. It's that simple.
In her position as fisheries minister, she has consistently sided with corporations and has done nothing to protect the Canadian industry, instead just promoting a neoconservative agenda.
So her riding is one that I will be working on, in an attempt to get our country back; and hopefully get a DFO minister, who actually cares.
This page is a work in progress, so I will share strategies soon.
