Is it just me, or were other Canadians insulted that an unelected political staffer was selected by Prime Minister Harper to announce the change in policy vis-à-vis our post-2011 military role in Afghanistan. Under what convention is PM Stephen Harper’s communications director, Dimitri Soudas, the proper person to break such important news.
Where was Defence Minister Peter MacKay or Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon or for that matter, the prime minister himself? Is this a message that these ministers count for nothing?
I for one don’t care what Dimitri Soudas has to say. I want to here news like this from a minister of the crown.
What the hell is going on in Ottawa?
