The Liberal Party of Canada has called on the minister who threw a tantrum in an airport to resign. That is exactly what I said on February 25th, almost two weeks ago. I’m happy with this decision, but what took them so long? This was an obvious show of disrespect to fellow Canadians just doing their job. This is not the kind of person we want to be the face of Canada. If I wanted to be rude, I would tell her to get out of my face, but I just want her to resign.
The Liberal party is calling for the resignation of Conservative MP Helena Guergis as minister of state for the status of women after she threw a tantrum last week at the Charlottetown Airport.
"Her behaviour is certainly unconscionable. It's not what one expects from a leader," said Anita Neville, Liberal critic for the Status of Women.
"I don't think she warrants a cabinet position with this kind of behaviour."
