As you know Joe Oliver has had some pretty bad news conferences eh?
Like the time he called environmentalists radicals or dangerous extremists.
Or the time he claimed we would be able to drink the tarry bubbly from the tailing ponds.
Well, the other day he held another big photo-op in Vancouver, and it was even more ridiculous.
The federal government rolled out eight new measures on Monday at the Port Metro Vancouver office that it says will create a "world class tanker safety system."
Not just because the Cons are closing a major coast guard station. But also because the star of the photo-op wasn't able to put in an appearance. Due to circumstances beyond its control.
An oil spill recovery vessel ran aground en route to a federal announcement on oil tanker safety in Vancouver on Monday, officials have confirmed.
The vessel was making a 12-hour trip from its base in Esquimalt to Vancouver for a tanker safety announcement by Federal Transport Minister Denis Lebel and Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver when it struck an uncharted sandbar near Sandheads at the mouth of the Fraser River near Steveston.
And what does Joe Oliver have to say about that?
Er....nothing so far.
And what do I have to say about this debacle?
Anybody who believes what those ghastly Con oil pimps have to say about ANYTHING has got to be either totally dumb, or absolutely CRAZY.
And of course, I can't wait for Joe's next photo-op...
Yup. The Harper Cons. Woof. Woof.
Bad for Canada. Bad for the planet.
Bad for EVERYBODY...
