Canadian politician James Moore.
I lived in Canada for a few years. I still follow the news there from time to time.
I thought this little tidbit had to be passed along.
James Moore, the Industry minister with the ruling federal Conservative Party had this to say during a radio interview: "Is it the government's job — my job to feed my neighbour's child? I don't think so," The full story can be seen here
I realize this isn't even in the ballpark of agreeing to cut employment insurance to millions of our citizens just in time for the holidays.
But it sure is a Scroogeworthy statement none the less.
While this statement would be less shocking for a Republican to make, and less surprising, it has not gone over so well in Canada, where they tend to think it kind of is the government's job to help people, especially children, when they need it.
