    MP apologizes for calling Americans 'bastards'


    The offending skank

    Last Updated Thu, 27 Feb 2003 7:07:12

    OTTAWA - A Liberal MP has apologized for saying about Americans: "I hate those bastards."

    MP Carolyn Parrish was speaking to reporters about Canada's diplomatic initiative on Iraq. At the end of her comments, after most of the cameras were turned off, Parrish said, "Damn Americans … I hate those bastards."

    CBC reporter Susan Lunn, who heard Parrish make the comment, said the MP then laughed as she was walking away.

    In a written statement issued Wednesday afternoon, Parrish says she made the comments in the heat of the moment in a private conversation. She said they do not reflect her opinion of the American people.

    "My comments do not reflect my personal opinion of the American people and they certainly do not reflect the views of the government of Canada," she said in her written statement.

    Late last year, the prime minister's communications director, Franηoise Ducros, resigned after calling U.S. President George W. Bush "a moron" during a conversation with a reporter in Prague.

    Canadian Alliance Leader Stephen Harper said Parrish's comments won't make relations between the two countries any better.

    "They don't do Canadians any good – Canadians who are trying to cross the border for business, Canadians who are trying to sell lumber or agricultural products or manufactured goods to the United States," said Harper.

    Deputy Prime Minister John Manley said MPs should know better.

    "I've tried to encourage members of the House and Senate to recognize they are public figures and they should exercise a certain amount of discretion in what they say," he said.

    The Prime Minister's Office said that Parrish does not speak for the government of Canada.

    Yeah, flaming off people who don't like America is way different than flaming off people who are flaming off on other people that are flaming off Canada

    She said after that she had a new appreciation for "boom mikes." Typical dumb-ass politician.

    It's funny how negative things like that always find their way into the US media but things like Canada hosting thousands of stranded airline passengers after September 11th don't.

    Kind of like how some moron American politicians immediately pointed a finger at Canada after 911, saying the terrorists had waltzed in across our supposedly lax border checks, completely ignoring the fact that the pilots were actually trained at American flight schools.

    LOL... so true

    What do you guys think about this.

    A couple of weeks ago we were in the middle of a fair bit of political head smashing. The opposition party here is peddling the 'no war without the UN' line pretty heavily. Thats fine, thats their job as opposition.

    Anyway one of the opposition parlimentarians made some vaugely anti american comments. Nothing like 'those bastards' as seen above, more along the lines of 'George Bush is a goose' type of thing. Sabres were rattled, the usual political hairy chested competition took place, and the dust settled. Thats how politics in Australia works.

    Anyways. The American ambassador chipped into the argument, publically warning the governemrnt here if the opposition didnt settled down it might 'have concequences'

    Now - I think thats reprehensible. It's not the job of the American consulate to tell us how to run our democracy. We (try to) practice free speech here. Parliment here (althoush usually business is conducted along party lines) can get pretty aggressive, open and pretty uhhh... frank at times. If an opposition member of parliment wants to rant and rave, thats his business, and the voters in his electorate will decide wether or not it's appropriate. To be fair the consul DID back down later on.
