Federal immigration minister Jason Kenney calls Alberta deputy premier Thomas Lukaszuk an asshole
Federal immigration minister Jason Kenney thinks Alberta's deputy premier Thomas Lukaszuk is an asshole.
Last week, Alberta MP Blaine Calkins's office emailed a request on Lukaszuk's behalf for a lunch or dinner with the federal Conservatives' Alberta caucus. However, Kenney quickly shot the proposal down—but instead of replying only to Calkins's office, the entire Alberta caucus plus assistants received the not-so-flattering dismissal.
“I say a definite ‘no’ to Lukaszyk. [sic] I don’t think it makes sense to create a precedent to do a special caucus meeting for every visiting minister from the provincial government. Plus he is a complete and utter asshole.":
Tsk tsk, Kenney. With a mouth like that, Stephen Harper's never gonna let you lead the party.
