Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

How easily they forget

  • Print

A recent trend coming from the provincial government appears to be their inability to remember things (Pallister's 'made up' letter enrages NDP officials, Jan. 10). Former cabinet Minister Christine Melnick, for example, forgot to tell the truth when asked about sending an email engaging the civil service to support the NDP agenda.

Premier Greg Selinger not only forgot that he had promised the taxpayers that he would not raise taxes, but after breaking that "promise," forgot to follow the law that mandates a referendum for such actions.

Now we have Health Minister Erin Selby feigning moral indignation over the Conservatives' tactic of sending letters to the editor.

She and her colleagues are aghast as they cannot ever remember such "behaviour from anyone in opposition."

Good point. If you require a reference to remember, Ms. Selby, do not look to the opposition, look to the party in power. You will find no shortage of behaviour that defies logic and ethical standards.
