I'm in full agreement with those calling for the removal of Health Minister Erin Selby (Selby must apologize, give answers, Editorial, April 8).

Her accusation is a gross misrepresentation and is typical of an NDP government so accustomed to blaming others for its failures it has lost touch with truth.

Her outrageous statement should not go unpunished; in addition to an apology, it's incumbent on Premier Greg Selinger to remove Selby from her position.

If Selinger fails to act, it will convey the impression he agrees with Selby's accusation and will be further evidence his government is now a sorry excuse for responsible governance.

It would appear Greg Selinger and his cast are busy rehearsing for a sequel to the film Liar Liar (Selby sorry for rekindling old hurts, April 9).

Combine the allegations attributed to Health Minister Erin Selby, former finance minister Stan Struther's denial of the consideration of a nine per cent PST increase and the Christine Melnick fiasco and you have a morally bankrupt government.

Add to this the NDP's pre-election propaganda regarding a loss of 1,000 nurses and 700 teachers under the Filmon government, and it would seem this government has a serious credibility problem.
