Too many rules says Chretien

And what's up, with that... "making people accountable"... for their actions?

"I know some cabinet ministers are complaining today that they are not getting the type of people in their office because of these restricting rules.

You know, we should have the best people we can get to do these jobs and these rules are keeping a lot of good people away from the Hill," said Mr. Chretien in an interview with CanWest News Service.
I guess Teflon Jean wants a return to the good old days of "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" that inflicted boondoggles like ADSCAM and the 2 billion dollar Farmer Bob Rifle Registry on an unsuspecting public.
Under prime ministers Jean Chretien and Paul Martin, Liberal-friendly firms were repeatedly accused of trading on their connections to the government to win lucrative consulting work.
Well, Jean... how can I explain this? A government job isn't supposed to be on the job training for greedy, uber-ambitious would-be lobbyists and political power brokers.

It's supposed to be about public service.

But try telling that to a Liberal.

The Liberal leader started wildly waving to the aboriginal delegation, pointing to his own chest with both hands and arguing that Baird was trying to take credit for something he himself had done when he was environment minister.

"It was me," he shouted upward to the aboriginal leaders, who looked a bit perplexed by all the gesturing.
Sounds like a nasty outbreak of "Garth Fever."

You know the LPC is in trouble when they drag out Chretien to be their point man. Of course we all know the rules when the LPC was in power: hire a minority, hire an immigrant and if failing that hire a leftist to all government positions.
(real conservative)

Chretien speaks! Great. He can tell us where the $40 million dollars went that the Liberal Party stole from Canadians.
