POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN BY JEFFERY SIMPSON IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
In fact, Peter Kent is the perfect appointment as Environment Minister.
"Environment" is a dirty word in Harperland, the ministry little more than a plaque on a door, and the minister little more than the name on the plaque.
And dear Mr. Kent has already demonstrated what nonentity he is, truly a pathetic figure, unqualified to be a decent department head at a Wal-Mart store.
So, Harper's appointment is a marriage made in heaven.
Soviet citizens used to grumble, "They pretend to pay us, and we pretend to work."
Canadians now can say, Harper will pretend to assign work on the environment, and Peter will pretend he's doing it.
"Harper likes to have around him people who don't question him..."
Always the way with bullies, and this prime minister is a true bully.
What a sad sack lot he has had for ministers!
The current health minister won't even go on radio news shows to be questioned about anything. She has done some ridiculous things, and likely is too stupid to understand what an embarrassment she is.
There's that wonderful man with the biker-gang girlfriend who left secret papers at her house for weeks.
And the wonderful gal who had to be escorted out of an airport by police after blowing a fit, who never opened her mouth without sounding like a recording tape from the Betsy Wetsy doll, and whose husband was abusing substances, the justice system, and every regulation there is for lobbying.
The new environment minister, as junior minister of nothing, practically declared Canada at war for Israel. What was he smoking? Is he competent enough to answer a doorbell?
And how else do you explain Peter MacKay?
A note to those who regard the focus of an environment ministry as only the subject of climate change.
We have fish in the Athabasca River which resemble atomic mutants from a 1950s science fiction film.
