Pierre Poilievre in what he calls a non-campaign style publicly funded video. You be the judge.
That Pierre Poilievre is a kidder eh?
How can the federal employment minister (and this guy knows how to get a job for life with benefits … employment indeed) say this excruciatingly boring video paid for by public funds is not a campaign vehicle.
Come on. For this he responds that he “made no apologies.” The video was crafted by public servants who came in on Sunday (ah the expense) to film the spots on child-care benefits.
“I will work hard seven days a week to ensure parents get their money and that money goes directly to their pockets,” said the top Ottawa-area MP and minister.
That’s what happens when a young man like Poilievre spends his whole life around politicians. He would call hell tepid. He could be leaning against a globe and still call the world flat.
Working seven days? A lot of people do that for a lot less than the employment minister makes. Ever run you own business, minister?
The public purse holds the money of hard-working Canadians. It is not to be used for this kind of video and an honourable member would just say sorry, I made a mistake.
But not our minister. Why he’ll tough this out in the face of all criticism. Cause he’s a tough guy. In fact he looks more like a cartoon than a minister.
There’s a reason for the criticism.
For all the money, Poilievre and the Tories spend on public-money commercials to tout themselves, killing these ads could be used to cut taxes … and we all know how much the Tories like to cut spending unless it is on themselves.
Do what other people do when caught in this situation. Just say you’re sorry.
It takes a real man to apologize.
