Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz? Who is he?Harper sure keeps his 'staff' under wraps.
quote:Earlier Wednesday, Ritz had little to say when asked about his comments as his flight from Saskatoon touched down at the Ottawa airport.A bearded man with the minister jostled with journalists as Ritz beelined through the terminal to a waiting sedan. At one point the man grabbed a reporter's recorder and jabbed at the off button."His only words were clipped."
For two minutes Ritz stared dead ahead as he was peppered with questions about the conference call. His only words were clipped.
"Not right now, guys," he said.
Then: "Get out of my face, please."
After his speech and apology Wednesday night, Ritz would not take questions and was whisked from the premises by aides.
"Get out of my face, please."
"[Ritz's Harper censor/minder] grabbed a reporter's recorder and jabbed at the off button."
ha ha ha ... this is the strength of Harper's bench?? ... no wonder he keeps them from the cameras!!
