After serving two terms on the Human Resources Development Canada Board of Referees, she was upset that Brison had led her to believe she was a shoo-in for the reappointment she ultimately did not get.
During a chance encounter at Acton's Restaurant in Wolfville, N.S., McGrath aired her frustration and advised Brison she would not support him in the next campaign.
"He got very upset. He looked at me and said, 'Well I've got something to tell you. I'm going to be the MP for a very, very long time, and you can kiss my ass,' " she recalled. "We were shocked and dumbfounded. This is a cabinet minister and there's supposed to be ethics in government. If he can't take some heat from the people of Canada, he shouldn't be in cabinet."(link)
Am I the only one disturbed by the fact that this woman, this liberal, gave her support to Brison only to pull it away because she didn't get the plush appointment she wanted? So what if Brison led her on... The promise of giving cozy government jobs to loyal Liberals isn't a right.
In fact, isn't that sort of thinking what started the whole AdScam mess in the first place? Are all Liberals Liberal just because of the payback they expect to get?
I don't know what to be more disgusted about, the fact that Brison's making these not-really-but-kinda-promises, or the fact that we have a whole government of people like this one woman running the country.
And this lady has the gall to talk about Ethics?
