This is what Peter Mackay is claiming as he runs out the clock of his shamefully inept political career as reported in this CBC piece here:
Mackay’s integrity was on full display when he screwed over David Orchard to kill the Progressive Conservative Party bringing into being the Harper Conservative government:
It surfaced again when he referred to our MP as a dog:
As Minister of Injustice Mackay has been a staunch and vocal defender of the Harper government’s anti-terror, omnibus legislation, Bill C-51.
His stint as Defence Minister resulted in a mass bungling of new jets for the Air Force:
But my favorite Mackay soapbox moment came in Augist of 2013 when he was quick to slam Justin Trudeau Thursday after the Liberal leader admitted to HuffPost Canada that he smoked marijuana since becoming an MP in 2008:
“By flouting the laws of Canada while holding elected office, he shows he is a poor example for all Canadians, particularly young ones. Justin Trudeau is simply not the kind of leader our country needs.”
Rick Mercer was quick to point out MacKay’s hypocritical stance by circulating the above photo of Mackay on the receiving end of a beer bong.
For the past decade Canadians have been on the receiving end of an anti-Canadian Harper government whose “profound lack of judgment” has resulted in actions that undeniably “speak for themselves.”
Peter Mackay is one of the last of the so called “great people” in Harper’s house of cards to fall.
Mackay is far from being a “historic figure” but in 140 days he will be history and Canada’s political future looks a little brighter without him in it.
And if we ever need a reminder we can always turn on an episode of South Park featuring guidance councilor Mr Mackey, mmmkay?
