Since I am still recovering from Pat Martin’s vile verbal assault on Minister Bev Oda in yesterday’s Kangaroo Court on the Hill, I can’t imagine how Ms. Oda herself is feeling today.
However, I’ll use this blog as a platform to let Bev Oda know that she has a lot of support in our BLY family here.
Pat Martin’s lack of gentlemanly decorum said more about him than Minister Oda.
Whatever the outcome of this sideshow, Canadians have witnessed a contemptuous act indeed - but it is NDP MP Pat Martin rather than Minister Oda, who should be hanging his head in shame today. This is not the first time he has unleashed his foul mouth on a female Conservative MP and I’m sure it won’t be his last.
I hope Pat Martin’s constituents let him know exactly how they feel in the next election. If I were in his riding I’d be angry and ashamed.
