Lisa Raitt Made Somebody Cry

Montreal Simon wrote something tonight that nearly broke my heart:

I wasn't planning to write another post about Lisa Raitt today. But that was before I told a friend how Raitt called cancer "sexy." And she started to cry because her mum is being treated for lung cancer.

And before it sunk in that Raitt didn't even have the decency to apologize.

I'd suggest emailing that story to Lisa Raitt, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't read her email. And showing up at her constituency office here in Milton doesn't seem to help either.

I do have her home address...

UPDATE: Meanwhile, Charlie Angus put his finger on it in QP today:

But the lingering plea of the day belonged to the NDP’s Mr. Angus.

“Why can’t you just say sorry?” he yelled from his seat beside the far wall as Raitt made one of her responses. “Why can’t you just take responsibility for what you said?”

Neither question would be answered this day.

Apparently not.

  1. Those who are ill deserve the best medical care available, as well as respect and compassion. This Conservative government has shown it is unable/unwilling to understand and respond to the needs of Canadians and it is time for them to go.
