Some diplomats are more credible than others according to Dosanjh?
On Twitter, we learn of Mr. Dosanjh’s opinion of Richard Colvin’s testimony:
“Colvin was absolutely honest ystrdy. He risked his all. #lpc #cdnpoli #roft” — Ujjal Dosanjh, November 19th 2009
What is Mr. Dosanjh’s opinion of the testimony that David Mulroney would give?
“The government expects us to go into that committee blindly and Mr. Mulroney sits there and tells us this happened and we have no way of knowing whether it happened or not.” — Ujjal Dosanjh, November 23rd 2009
David Mulroney is the current ambassador to China who ran the Afganistan Task Force for the government of Canada. Richard Colvin was a senior diplomat who served in Afghanistan.
October 5, 2009:
Liberal MP Mark Holland is among the majority of the MPs in the 308-seat House of Commons who have not signed on to Twitter.
He sees it as an “info-dumping” medium and says he cannot find a compelling reason to start tweeting.
“You can’t get very much in 140 characters,” he says. “It tends to lend itself to a lot of really useless information.”
5 hours ago:
“looking forward to connecting with my constituents in a new and exciting way – please follow me on twitter.”
Perhaps the threat of a star candidate in Ajax-Pickering made Holland think again about the need to connect in more ways with his constituents.
I like Warren Kinsella. One of the reasons I like him is because he went for my open question, brought in the other side to weigh in, and now this allows us to fill in the blanks too. Oh, and he introduced me to Bob Rae, the next leader of the Liberal party!
Tweet the first:
Tweet the second:
Other potential tweets:
“Senate reform: can’t wait to pass legislation that has popular support by folks that have a democratic mandate from Canadians! The scotch budget, however, will remain.”
“Respect for the Alberta: Liberal-free since 2006. WK may return but has to wear black hat in the parade”
“When the ‘decade of darkness’ for the military re: Liberal investment is so far in the past, kids file it along with ‘moon landing’ and ‘Michael Jackson’ as crazy #$@* that happened that only our history books can really tell us about”
“When the Liberal party stops offering us out-of-touch humanities professors to feast upon, and tosses us a street-brawler like Jean Chretien or (oh please) Ruby Dhalla”
“When ‘Unity Crisis’ is mistaken as the name for an 80s revival band that covers Starship, rather than our recurring Liberal ballot headache”
What other things are you hopeful for in the future?
