You probably won’t see me write this very often, but good on Prime Minister Stephen Harper for his response to Stéphane Dion and Gilles Duceppe’s questions about Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier’s ex-girlfriend.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper dismissed concerns Thursday pertaining to the past relationship between Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier and a woman formerly linked to the Hells Angels.
Julie Couillard, Bernier’s former girlfriend, was once married to a biker and lived with another.
Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion and Bloc Québécois Leader Gilles Duceppe want to know whether the relationship was a security risk.
On Thursday, Harper called the two opposition leaders “a group of gossipy, old busybodies.”
“It’s none of my business, it’s none of Mr. Duceppe’s business, it’s none of Mr. Dion’s business,” he told reporters in Ottawa.
Maybe it’s just a slow news day in Ottawa, but I find it hard to believe that the most worthy issue that the Leader of the Official Opposition and the Bloc Québécois had to raise was about the Foreign Affairs Minister’s ex-girlfriend. Really, guys?
