Belinda Stronach claims she jumped into bed with the thieving Liberals out of a sense of duty for her country. She doesn’t have a clue. Have another read of the quote from Ronald Reagan at the top of this to understand what she was actually doing.
She collected her lolly as the newly-minted minister responsible for HRDC, and ironically, for the ethical monitoring of activities following the Gomery report.
I am truly disgusted by the lot of them.
So, why destroy a good cop’s career over something like this? Unless there’s a lot more than meets the eye in what has been published in the media on this file, the Winnipeg Chief is doing a disservice to not only the member involved, but to the citizens of the community he serves.
And for what?
Is it possible he does not realize that by his actions he is proving the Standfirm group were accurate in their assessment? They talked about bullying and retribution and failing to adhere to the Core Principles espoused, but apparently not practiced by this chief.
And what’s with the President of the Calgary Police Association? Let’s take a look at the quote attributed to him in the Global stoy. Here’s the quote:
I think it is also interesting that any police association is prepared to stand by when senior management are conducting a witch hunt and apparently, is prepared to say 15 members are not a cause for concern. It’s a bloody great concern and Koenig should be roasted by the membership for his malfeasance in not standing up to this bullying style of management. Or perhaps I should say cooperation. For it certainly looks to me like he has rolled over and allowed Beaton to scratch his belly like an old hound dog.
As an aside, where has the Calgary Sun been in all of this? To the best of my knowledge they have barely noticed this story. Why? Every other member of the mainstream media has covered the story and the Calgary Herald, A Channel and CBC have even committed their lawyers to getting the files unsealed. What happened to the Sun’s duty to the good citizens of Calgary? Or are they drinking the same bathwater as Beaton and Koenig?
