Cons refuse to renounce Penashue's 'contemptuous actions': Cleary

video

I posed the following question today (April 25th) in the House of Commons. Further down is a copy of the accompanying news release.

More of the same double speak from Ottawa Conservatives - the worse kind of Conservative.

Not only is this disgraced former minister, Peter Penashue, pitting the good people of Bishop's Falls against Labradorians - and holding the Sir Robert Bond Bridge hostage - he even has the audacity to brag about it.

Worse, no one in that government has distanced themselves one iota from this despicable, divisive behavior.

Is there really no one on that side who will renounce his contemptuous actions ... an attempt to divide the people of my province?


CONSERVATIVES REFUSE TO RENOUNCE PENASHUE’S 'CONTEMPTUOUS' BEHAVIOUR


OTTAWA – It’s time for the Conservatives to renounce the behaviour of former cabinet minister Peter Penashue for his comments about holding up projects in Newfoundland, says NDP MP Ryan Cleary (St. John’s South—Mount Pearl).

“Not only is this disgraced former Minister Peter Penashue pitting the good people of Bishop's Falls against Labradorians - and holding the Sir Robert Bond Bridge hostage. He even has the audacity to brag about it,” said Cleary during today’s Question Period in the House of Commons.

During a campaign event in Labrador, Penashue claimed that he held up a project in Newfoundland for six months.

 “Worse, no one in that government has distanced themselves one iota from this despicable, divisive behavior,” said Cleary. “Is there really no one on that side who will renounce his contemptuous actions an attempt to divide the people of my province?”
