New Democrat member of parliament Jack Harris once again shows his willingness to offer a comment based on ignorance.
Perhaps he could have the good sense to refrain from further comment rather than try to score cheap political points – yet again - using a tragedy as his prop.
Amazing Ambulance Chasing Crap Update: Your humble e-scribbler unfortunately just heard Jack Harris on CBC radio continuing his relentless campaign to display his own ignorance.
Sadly, Jack has obtained standing at the offshore helicopter inquiry and so will have a platform from which to spout his innuendo and political agenda in the midst of an inquiry that ought to be directed to identifying fact.
He doesn’t want to acknowledge what has already been stated publicly repeatedly, namely that Cougar provides search and rescue service for the offshore as required by the offshore regulator. That’s why – as he well knows – the helicopter was “reconfigured” on the day of the crash. It had nothing to do with DND.
What’s more, the 103 Squadron aircraft were not “off station” or “away” as Jack continually stated.
There is no embarrassment within the SAR community over this, again as jack keeps trying to suggest. There should only be embarrassment - and huge dollop of shame shame – for people like Jack who continue to spread malicious nonsense despite having evidence that directly contradicts what he is still getting on about.
If Jack’s appalling performance on the Cougar 491 case wasn’t bad enough, the federal Dipper defence critic then switched topics – in response to a question from the host - critic is now chasing down the French missile bullshit and the UFO story.
The M51 flew a day AFTER the strange thing in the sky over Newfoundland.
This guy is absolutely, astoundingly ignorant.
