Problems with ACOA hiring process, Cons break promise to fight patronage
I posed the following question Thursday (March 28th) in the House of Commons.
Conservatives continue to make up stories, Mr. Speaker, they fail to take responsibility.
We now learn senior ACOA officials fixed a hiring process so a political aide to the Defence minister could get a job he wasn't qualified for, hired because he was "a minister's staff person."
It's blatant patronage, yet the minister fails to take responsibility.
We did Conservatives break their promise to fight patronage.
Why are they putting their government's partisan interests ahead of the interests of Atlantic Canadians?
