Tory Minister makes sexist remark to young woman – UPDATEDPosted: March 24, 2013
Hey look, a troll who posts from the Manulife Centre in Toronto without enough courage to post his real name says I’m going to be a bad wife one day!
Well, in Stephen Harper’s Canada, I guess we still live in a Mad Men world.
Shame on Conservative Fisheries minister Keith Ashfield, and shame on this entire government. I sure hope he, and his boss, get asked about this tomorrow:
In Fredericton, MP and federal Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield, invited the media to a staged family conversation about the budget with Roland and Gina Moreno and their two daughters.
It was an opportunity to highlight the government’s emphasis on training young people for jobs the economy needs, but things went awkwardly off-script at the start as Ashfield sampled baked goods and chatted with eldest daughter Grace Moreno, a local high school student leader.
“Grace, you’re a great cook,” Ashfield said. “You’re going to make a wonderful wife for somebody.”
