Bernard Lord of New Brunswick: Official Languages Report

Bernard Lord has proven one more time that he's a loser. He sought an ambassadorial position with the Harper government, but former PEI Premier Pat Binns beat him to it. Then Lord accepted the Official Languages review from Harper and played patsy to him -- if Harper asked him to jump, Lord's only question was "how high."

According to the Parliamentary Committee on Official Languages, Lord produced a very vague document. For example, one important issue - the Court Challenges Program which the Harper goverment abolished - gets no mention in Lord's report. Rather, there is only the vague assertion saying that those aggrieved should sue as the courts are available to everybody. Yes Bernie, but it costs money.

Bernard Lord has proven, one more time, that he's a loser in BOTH official languages.
