Federal officials confirmed last night that Ms. Couillard's mother, Diane Bellemare, obtained a federal appointment last August to be a member of the Employment Insurance Boards of Referees, officials said last night.I'm sure you can all come up with your own interesting questions at home now, can't you?
The three-year position was approved through an order-in-council and was made on the recommendation of Human Resources Minister Monte Solberg.
Federal officials insisted that Mr. Bernier was not involved in the nomination, and Ms. Bellemare has qualifications to hold the part-time position, in which she will adjudicate employment insurance matters. The officials said Ms. Bellemare underwent a security screening for the position.
Anything else you want to tell us, Conservatives? Or do you prefer the drip, drip, drip thing you've got going on?
The tentacles are on steroids...
