Gerry Ritz Jokes About Canadians Dying...That's the Kind of Government We Have

What a sick individual Gerry Ritz is! Joking over people dying of lysteria is absolutely sick. My God this man should resign and if not the PM should ship him to the Arctic.

UPDATE: I mean no disrespect to the good people of the Arctic.

Now the million dollar question.

How will the media react to this revelation?

So far they have given the Conservatives a pass on everything. Will this cause them to change that?

My money is on them down playing this.

It's not just the joking, it's the fact that, when faced with people dying because of decisions he made, the guy is more worried about his reputation ("death of a thousand cold cuts") than about preventing more deaths. There are still people out there carrying this bacteria. It takes up to 90 days to show.

What would you be doing if a decision you had made at work had killed 17 people? Wouldn't you be, y'know, sad or something?

Harper dumps a war room goon for partisan tastlessness comments about a father of a soldier killed in Afghanistan but let this creep have a pass for crassness and insensitivity.

Canadian citizens have to wake up. Harper is a clear and present danger to Canada and our democracy. Stop him now before he treats you like he treats his caucus and cabinet.

How can we stop these people? Ritz is the one that has been so nasty to the farmers and the Wheat Board..I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall there.The whole lot are dangerous...yet a great many people like them...maybe some voters are damn stupid!!

My bet is that Ryan Sparrow is not flogging donuts at Tim Horton's right now.
