The Con Clown Jason Kenney is Caught Lying. Again
Well as you know, I already consider Jason Kenney to be the worst Defence Minister this country has ever known.
He has lied about the terrorist threat, he has endangered the security of our troops in Iraq.
But this is the absolute limit.
The federal government has ratcheted up its war of words over Ukraine, with the parliamentary defence secretary claiming Russian warships confronted a Canadian frigate in the Black Sea. NATO officials, however, say no such thing happened.
Can you believe it?
Making it sound like the Russians are singling out Canada.
James Bezan, parliamentary secretary to Minister of National Defence Jason Kenney, told the House of Commons this week: "Since arriving in the Black Sea, Royal Canadian Navy sailors have been confronted by Russian warships and buzzed by Russian fighter jets." Kenney also repeated the claim the next day, stating that a Russian jet buzzed the Canadian frigate HMCS Fredericton at low altitude.
Only to be shot down by our own NATO allies...
NATO officials say the frigate, part of a NATO naval task group, was not buzzed and there was no confrontation. The Russian vessels could be seen far off on the horizon, kilometres away.
NATO officials said the encounter wasn't unusual and if Russian ships showed up on Canada's coasts, the Royal Canadian Navy would have followed similar procedures for keeping an eye on foreign vessel traffic.
And made to look like an idiot or a MANIAC.
The world is a dangerous enough place. Russia is a dangerous enough country.
Without having Kenney pour gasoline on the flames, and escalate the situation even further.
In relentless pursuit of the ethnic vote.
What will he do next I wonder?
And when in the name of world peace.
Can we get rid of that dangerous liar?
