Was Pierre Poilievre Assigned To Speak To Harper's Hardcore Reform Base Back Home?
Conservative MP, Pierre Poilievre is getting spanked in public once again for saying the following while Harper was supposed to be giving an apology to survivors of residential schools:
"My view is that we need to engender the values of hard work and independence and self-reliance. That's the solution in the long run -- more money will not solve it."
This comment is not only dumb and reeking of right wing ideology, it was completely inappropriate to be said on the same day that the Government of Canada was giving a formal apology to First Nations, Innu and Metis people.
The timing was so outrageous, I simply have to ask the following question: was Pierre Poilievre assigned to speak to Harper's hardcore Reform base back home?
I wonder if Polivere was tasked (as he quite often is) to make a statement that is intended to resonate with the old Reform ideologues back home in Alberta and Saskatchewan. It seems to me that Polivere has played this role before.
The question is worth asking simply because the only other possible reason for Polivere to have said what he said is because he is a complete moron!
During Statements By Members in Parliament today, the final statment before Question Period was delivered by Conservative MP Pierre Polievre who apologized for his remarks yesterday concerning Aboriginal and First Nations people!
