Thank you, Glen Pearson


Finally a Liberal with some common sense on the Helena Guergis issue. Liberal MP for London North Center, Glen Pearson wants to put a stop to the Helena pile on. To that I say Amen! I think enough is enough now.

Is it just me, or does this whole Helena Guergis saga seem increasingly macabre? Every week seems to bring out some new sordid revelation that turns this narrative into some kind of neverending story. I’ve grown increasingly disturbed at what appears to be a pack mentality swirling around the junior cabinet minister. It’s almost as if we’ve reached the point where we can no longer avert our gaze, as most civilized people would normally do.
In any story like this, things take a clear turn for the worse when we go from hearing of someone’s troubles to actually pursuing more discoveries in hopes that the person in question goes through even further shame.
I’ll be honest here and state that I believe it’s time we backed off from the Helena Guergis story – not because of what we’re discovering about her but about what we’ve seen in ourselves. Citizens, media, political parties (including her own) – we’ve all pursued her calamities to such a degree that we now seem kind of ghoulish. I’m reminds of Albert Einstein’s sage observation: “Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.”

In the mean time his caucus colleague Marlene Jennings is keeping on with the pile on. She want the Ethics Commissioner to investigate the financing of a mortgage on a home that Helena has purchased. This is just getting ridiculous!


The Liberals have asked the federal ethics commissioner to review the financing of an $880,000 Ottawa home purchased by Status of Women Minister Helena Guergis.
Montreal MP Marlene Jennings wrote to Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson on Monday afternoon to ask that she look into the terms of the mortgage on the four-bedroom home on Rock Avenue in Lindenlea

Ms. Jennings and Mr. Pearson seem not to be on the same page. Mr. Pearson should have a little chat with Jennings and Doorknob Wayne Easter too for that matter to tell to back off and leave Helena alone now.
The media too should pay attention to this common sense Liberal and stop as well. There are more important stories to cover, like what are we going to do next in Afghanistan for instance or we have a looming crisis coming in healthcare, we need to be talking about that too. Gee, how can you make the Conservatives look bad talking about issues like that? Hmmm.............!

Come on Jennings, Easter and MSM how about acting like adults for a change and focus on adult issues and stop playing these juvenile junior high games? Listen to Mr. Pearson, he makes sense!

Thank you Mr. Pearson for bringing some sanity to this saga!

Update:
Dave Rutherford has a good rant on this here. A must listen. Goes after the Liberals and the MSM on the Guergis mortgage thing. Takes phone calls after rant. Go to the around April7, 9:35 am mark.

  1. Mr. Pearson has a follow up post regarding Conservative tactics with Dion and Ignatieff. I trust you'll consider his thoughts about this issue also.

  3. This is a new low, even for a gutter operative like Jennings. Why do you suppose Jennings and Liberals were not agitated by Jean Chretien's mortgage dealings with golf properties? I think some of Jennings actions come awfully close to libellous. They certainly are ethically challenged.

  4. A similar pack mentality occurred with Rona Ambrose when she was environment minister.

    So is it me, or do the Liberals go after women ministers with extra gusto?

  5. Harper should have got rid of Guergis by now if you ask me. But the behaviour of the left is ridiculous on this subject. On the topic of Dion and Ignatieff, they are fair for attacks because they are supposed to be 'prime ministerial material.' I'll leave that to you to figure out whether true or not. (real conservative)

  6. And when the ethics commissioner comes back and says there is nothing wrong, how many MSM outlets do you think are going to cover it?

    Ardvark,I bet you'll have to go rummaging through the papers and maybe find a small paragraph on page 6 or 7. Don't expect to hear it on the radio or any television networks.
    In other words it will be largely ignored by the media.

  8. The Bank of Nova Scotia already came out and said there is nothing in that mortgage that any person could not get.

    If the Ethics Commish even ALLOWS this case,
    it would be outrageous.

  9. Jennings is not only going to stop at Helena, beware of the LIBERALS MELTDOWN, they might go after any other innocent person like us for instances and demand how we live our paychecks even our mortages we owe will be under their scrutiny.
    This should give us a warning into the mentality of the liberals and entitlements to do as they please without recourse.
    Six liberal MPS still owe loans and Jennings goes after HELENA?

    Scary, isn't it,Jen? How did Jennings get access to Helena's mortgage info anyway? It's private information. That's something the MSM should be inquiring Jennings and Ignatieff. Not gonna hold my breath though. If our so called unbiased,objective journalists were worth their salt, they'd be asking questions. I don't care what anyone says, the lame stream media in this country is corrupt.
    Don't forget, Liberals can do no wrong. Libs=good, Conservatives=bad
