Harper loose cannon Julian Fantino is at it again. Now safely distanced from the F-35 fiasco, Fantino has been unleashed on the International Cooperation portfolio.
His diplomatic prowess was demonstrated in La Presse where Fantino announced Canadian aid to Haiti was being frozen. It turns out that nobody notified the Haitians or, for that matter, Canada's ambassador to Port-au-Prince either.
Haitian ambassador to Canada Frantz Liautaud said the first he heard
of Mr. Fantino’s freeze on aid to Haiti was through this morning’s news.
He’s already contacted the Canadian International Development Agency,
the government aid organization that Mr. Fantino oversees, seeking
said he called Canada’s ambassador to Port-au-Prince, who didn’t know
about it either. “He also learned about it from the press,” Mr. Liautaud
In his interview with La Presse, Mr. Fantino said Haitians
have to take charge of their own problems, and was quoted in French
saying Haitian aid is “on ice at the moment.”
“Are we going to take care of their problems forever? They also have to
take charge of themselves,” he was quoted as saying by La Presse.
Yep, Fantino is all class. How this joker ever got beyond beat cop is a complete mystery.
