A must listen! Dave Rutherford interviewed Wayne Doorknob Easter this morning on his show about patronage appointments. Dave really gave Easter a good smack-down. You can listen right here. Click on 10:00AM then scroll to 35:03.
He says Stephen Harper is the worst PM for patronage appointments. Dave got him on Liberal patronage and Easter said Liberals weren't that bad. Yeah right! Dave points out that PM Harper's patronage appointments are 20% compared to Chretien's patronage appointments at 50%. Dave then points out that our Ambassador to the US, former Manitoba Premier, Gary Doer is an NDP. Then Doorknob goes on to admit that PM Harper has actually made some pretty good appointments. Easter is one of the biggest hypocrites that's for sure. Dave did a really good job putting Easter in his place. Wish we had more journalists that would give Easter a good smack-down like that.
Liberal patronage appointments-good
Conservative patronage appointments-bad
Heads up , Dave Rutherford has been called to testify at the Industry Committee tomorrow about the long form census. I think he said around 9:30AM EST. He has no clue why just that he's been called. Should be interesting.
