I really want trash Jason Kenney or make this out to be a sign of a worsening relationship between the federal Conservatives and the Alberta PCs.
But Jason Kenney is far from the first politician to call another politician a nasty word, so all I can really complain about is that a Cabinet Minister hasn’t mastered the “reply all” button. Beyond that, there’s really nothing to see here.
Kenney made the biting comment in a reply to an email from Blaine Calkins, chairman of the Alberta Tory caucus.
Calkins was asking if any of Alberta’s 25 MPs was prepared to host Lukaszuk during a visit by the Alberta deputy premier this coming Thursday.
“I say a definite ‘no’ to Lukaszyk,” Kenney replied, misspelling the minister’s name.
“I don’t think it makes sense to create a precedent to do a special caucus meeting for every visiting minister from the provincial government.
“Plus he is a complete and utter asshole.”
