Liberal Finance Ministers

144x75 Let’s review, for a minute here.

Jean Chretien, the Prime Minister who created the rules that allow Quebec to break up my country, appointed Paul Martin as his Finance Minister. In the dying days of that Government, it became clear that the “Liberal Party was deeply courrupt” including illicit financial dealings with public money. The Finance Minister claimed he knew nothing.

Fast forward that Finance Minister Paul Martin is Prime Minister Paul Martin who appoints Ralph Goodale as his finance minister. The income trust scandal breaks, the Finance Ministry is under investigation by the RCMP (Merry Christmas Mr. Harper) and once again the Finance Minister claims to have known nothing, while Mr. Martin has implicated his own office.

Remind me again why we have a Finance Minister, and particularly a Liberal one? These last two have apparently, by their own admission, been fairly lacklustre.
