A Conservative member of Parliament is defending her plan to give free water bottles, with the party logo, to French immersion students in Winnipeg.Oh, it's the scene, man.
Shelly Glover says she simply wanted to congratulate the kids on speaking a second language.
Glover sent a letter to one of the school divisions in the Manitoba capital, offering to give them water bottles adorned with her name and the Conservative party logo.
But the school division rejected the idea, citing a policy that prohibits the use of teaching aids that promote specific parties or people.
We're really not so far off around here with the satire, are we?
