Only the corporate Globe and Mail could hail Calgary MP Jim Prentice as a model of a public servant. As we know Prentice is leaving to a $2 million dollar gig with CIBC. As an environment minister he has been a total flop, putting on a sober face and doing nothing to reverse Canada’s embarrassing record as a global polluter.
Wherein lay his public service? Certainly not to the deteriorating environment.
Prentice was a dud as a friend of the environment, a decent guy putting nothing but spin out in a friendly, affable way.
The Globe’s editorial of Nov. 4 should be read as either humour or irony.It fails the smell test of reality. Only in Calgary, only in the Globe and Mail.
