That is if the following is what you would call working.
Liberal MP Gerry Byrne believes the federal government should investigate whether the pieing of Fisheries Minister Gail Shea by a woman opposed to the seal hunt constitutes an act of terrorism.
A crime yes, but terrorism?
Liberal MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj is livid about Immigration Minister Jason Kenney’s trip to Poland this week. Referring to the minister’s visit to Auschwitz as a “jaunt,” the Toronto MP says Mr. Kenney should be here, or in Haiti, dealing with the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.
Wrzesnewskyj 'jaunt" comment coming after comments made the previous day by Liberals such as Marlene Jennings defending MP's and Senators trips during the prorogation:"These are not junkets, they really aren't," she said. "When I first came in I did a few of these trips and believe me, we work. There is research that is done, there are documents that are produced, with recommendations and results and legislation. So we're working and believe me, they've got us going from early in the morning until fairly late in the evening." and Liberal MP and deputy whip Marcel Proulx who said: "I think it's the media's role to help us make people understand that because Parliament has been prorogued, it doesn't mean that Parliamentarians, whether they be Members of Parliament or whether they be Senators, we're not going to sit at home and wait until March 3, so we can come to Ottawa and sit in the House. It's a 12-month a year business. People know that we're continuing to work."
(Sorry Marcel, but you can't expect the media to tell the people the truth that work continues even during a prorogation after they have spent weeks telling everyone the opposite. Hey come to think of it Marcel, isn't your leader essentially telling that same lie?)
Welcome back Liberals. Keep up the good "work".
