You say disgrace, I say hypocrisy

Regarding Mr. Toews' big personal show of upset yesterday:"Liberals believe unilingual people are 'less Canadian': Toews." Mr. Toews, who is overseeing Official Languages Act policy in the public service yet doesn't speak French seems to be forgetting something. His Conservative party gleefully spent over two years publicly and widely attacking and mocking the English language communication skills of one Stephane Dion. So you'll have to excuse some of us for not exactly commiserating when someone questions a Conservative minister's own communication skills in French when he's responsible for overseeing official languages policy. And is questioned professionally within the confines of a Commons committee about said topic and not pilloried over the public airwaves in a campaign of character assassination for years.

But nice try.
