As reported on Blue Like You, nanny-gate just keeps getting smellier and smellier. Now, apparently there is a third worker alleging abuse. Is it not so very telling that with such serious allegations of illegal behavior, Liberal bloggers on Liblogs or Libs online were pretty much silent on the issue yesterday? Had this been a Conservative MP, there would have been a feeding frenzy.
Can such blind partisanship be healthy for our society as a whole? I think not. For surely when a legislator offends our national conscience, it is incumbent on us all to speak out and to keep doing so until until the issue is resolved.
Such issues as Ruby Dhalla’s nanny-gate scandal are bigger that any one political party—it is a national disgrace shared by us all.
