Tory Tantrum

Helena Guergis, the minister of state for the status of women has thrown a tantrum in the middle of an airport. She arrived late for a flight, got caught up in security, then refused to remove her shoes and started yelling at her and Air Canada's staff. It's one thing to yell at people during question period but it's another to yell at airport staff who are just trying to help. This MP should resign out of shame that she disrespected ordinary Canadians.

Helena Guergis, minister of state for the status of women, issued an apology Thursday to Charlottetown airport workers and Air Canada staff for throwing a tantrum last week.
The move comes after an anonymous letter was sent to Liberal MP Wayne Easter earlier Thursday outlining the incident.
According to the letter, Guergis and an aide arrived late at Charlottetown Airport for their flight to Montreal on Feb. 19 and became verbally abusive to staff.

  1. you want her to resign well welcome to the world of politics and you know we do not know the full story i am not saying i am okay with her action or even think that there is actually any explication for this crime but we do not know if she had some sort of problem before the incident

  2. Really Vanillaman? If you or I acted like that security sure wouldn't ask us if we were having a hard day.

    Why should she be treated any different?

    Also when was a tantrum a crime? If that was the case most Conbots would be in jail already.

  3. Of course there was a problem before the incident. Passengers are required to be a couple of hours early before the flight. She arrived late. That's no reason to go around yelling at anyone you see. It was HER fault that she arrived late, not anyone else's.

  4. Many politicians develop a sense of entitlement for special treatment. This has happened to political figures of all political stripes. I believe that most politicians have a narcissistic streak to begin with and this narcissism is one of the reasons they enter public life to begin with.

  5. That lady should seriously decide if she wants to be an MP or not, before her constituents decide for her.

  7. i think she may have had a bad day ( not that that is a good excuse) and although many may want her too resign i think that since she has apologize and if she shows that this is clearly not herself usually we should not just decide upon one moment if she should resign

  8. I don't know why so many people are complaining about the Helen Geurgis incident at the Charlottetown Airport. It proves the strength of our democracy. It proves that ANYONE can grow up to be a Cabinet Minister. ... Well, maybe not actually grow up. ;)
