FrmGrl, from that blog, “Chasing Apple Pie” (how quaint!) is outraged, yet again, today. Let’s take a look at what’s put a bee in her bonnet today, shall we? Well, actually, her’s and Sun Media darling, Brian Lilley’s.
Sylvain Lafrance, the executive VP of CBC’s French language services, treated Liberal Senator Francis Fox to a $119 lunch in October 2009 at Montreal’s Restaurant Julien.
As for FrmGrl :
Liberals and the CBC, birds of a feather, liberal elites that like to suck off the public teat with no regards for the lowly taxpayer
Oooohhh, shiver me timbers! They had lunch! Atta boy, Brian! You uncovered this in your CBC watch! Wow, your bosses must be just, oh so proud! I know FrmGrl now has a massive crush on you (well, after her crush on Steve Harper, naturally; hard playing second fiddle, ain’t it?)
Let me get this straight, neither of you has a problem with a billion + dollars spent on the G8/G20 (breakdown includes over million for fake lakes and glow sticks in the tens of thousands of bananas), but you both take issue with a 119$ lunch (ok, and a 20$ cab ride)??
I bet if it was Don Cherry having lunch with a con senator, this would fly under both your radars.
Oops! Bonus track, Lilley has an extra beef with Senator Fox:
Fox was a member of Pierre Trudeau’s cabinet before he was forced to resign as solicitor-general in 1978 after it was revealed that he forged the signature of his girlfriend’s husband to help her get an abortion.
Let’s remember that Lilley (and FrmGrl, as well, no doubt) is a big time fetus fetishist, thus, makes clear to us why he makes a federal case and stops the presses over this non story.
