Tories using CIDA website to attack NDP
Well it appears that the Tories have crossed yet another line.
In response to a MP Hélène Laverdière’s December blog post in the Huff Post, somebody at the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) decided to post the Huff Post response by Julian Fantino, Minister of International Cooperation, directly on the CIDA website. There was also another partisan post on the CIDA website attacking the Liberals that stated “Liberals make promises,
Conservatives get results - Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)”.
The whole CIDA website seems to be down as of this evening but some people were quick enough to grab screen captures. The CIDA Twitter account says that “Messages were posted on #CIDA`s
website by mistake. They have been removed.”
Thomas Mulcair has just blasted Fantino for this innappropriate use of a government agecy website.
A mistake, eh? “Oops! I accidentally copied, pasted and reformatted AND translated into French this
Huff Post letter and then uploaded it to the CIDA website!” Don’t you just hate it when that happens!
