VERITAS: FUMBLE - HEALTH MINISTER REINFORCES CRITICS’ ATTACK

Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq has been under fire from critics who say the government’s plan for dealing with a potential H1N1 pandemic doesn’t measure up. They have already gotten lots of play with negative comments on the matter, so it’s a Fumble for sure when the minister herself re-stated those attacks, telling a committee meeting “I know there are critics out there who don’t think we’ve done enough, fast enough, for enough people.” You’re right, minister, they don’t … and for anyone who missed those comments the first time, you re-heated them so effectively that the National Post pulled that exact quote and blew it up across the top of the page. Fumble.
