Don't Let Your Life Insurance Premiums Lapse
When Ambrose was first appointed EnviroMin, Hill Times revealed that after eight months in the job, she still hadn't been briefed by here department's science types on global warming:
Ms. Ambrose hasn't bothered to get a briefing from her department on the science of climate change. HT spoke with an unnamed official of her department who said Ronnie hadn't been briefed by here ministry's scientists who specialize in this area, adding, "It's shocking, isn't it?"
We all know how well she subsequently did on the F-35 file as understudy to Elmer's dim boy, Peter MacKay. Now, she's being entrusted with the responsibility to safeguard our health. What a gift to hypochondriacs from coast to coast.
Fortunately for Ms. Ambrose she's stepping into a job whose previous occupant, Leona Aglukkaq, set the bar comfortably low, even by Ambrose standards. Minister Aglukkaq's main claim to fame came from rejecting the advice of health ministry experts on trans-fat monitoring as well as her blue-ribbon panel on sodium issues, food labeling, energy drinks and bogus whole wheat claims.
