John Baird Doesn’t Want To Invest In Tolerance & Diversity
Frustrated that Toronto City officials couldn’t fill out a few forms properly that would ensure the city would get federal stimulus monies, federal Transport, Infrastructure and Communities Minister John Baird, lashed out at those Toronto City officials last Monday:
“Twenty-seven hundred people got it right. They didn’t. That is not a partnership and they’re bitching at us,” Baird said.
“They should f– off.”
Baird had since apologized.
To be fair to the folks at Toronto City Council, the person that was chosen to fill out the application for the federal monies was probably picked by a diversity coach trying to level the employment playing field. Although said persons skill-set doesn’t include speaking or writing English, it does include a medley of proficiencies when applied to gay/lesbian/transgendered workshops.
