What Next The Brian Mulroney School of Ethical Politics


 

The Tories just named an Ice breaker after John G Diefenbaker ?

 

Considering Diefenbaker’s track record on military equipment how he traded the Avro Arrow for the Bomarc Missile which wouldn’t work without nuclear warheads which he rejected isn’t this kind of DUMB.

 

Naming a piece of military hardware after John G Diefenbaker is stupid, it is just short of naming a Muslim community centre after George W Bush, or a Jewish synagogue after Goebbels.

 

Robin the hood, in the comments on CTV’s article on the choice discribed Mr Diefenbaker well as a “right wing, pro-US, purely regional conservative from out west who never could speak a word of french” a natural choice for the Tories to honor.

  1. I agree with your point. The US Navy has sometimes done the same thing with the “explanation” they are honoring the term of public service of the individual, not necessarily the quality of the effort. ntl, it seems a bit ironic. Might better have been a garbage scow.

    Cheers
