Who is Pulling Parliamentary Strings?
Mar 23 , 2015
As I listened to Scott Andrews address the media concerning his decision to remove himself from the Liberal Caucus in light of harassment allegations, I wondered to myself whose words were they? Did he truly mean every word? Then those thoughts were interrupted by flashes of the political drama “House Of Cards” as if to remind me that the truth is there but it’s overshadowed by the political spin.
I don’t blame him for that. His strings are attached to a Powerful Puppeteer- Fear. Fear is controlling his words. It’s controlling his actions and subsequently his reputation.
I believe him when he says that he has learned a lot about himself. And if he can learn from it, I commend him for it.
But in the same breath he downplays his involvement by insinuating that his “jovial Newfoundland Friendliness” could have been misperceived.
Perhaps that’s when FEAR pulled his strings to protect his wife’s heart from further damage?
It’s unfortunate that the public is not privy to the findings of the Executive Summary. Now we are left with an imagination that, through the Ghomeshi and Cosby Scandals, knows no boundaries.
It doesn’t have to be that way. My perception of the Dalhousie Dentistry Students who were involved in the Facebook scandal has changed in their favour in light of their participation in restorative justice.
I hope the parties involved, including Mr. Andrews, in time, will heal; all he needs is a pair of scissors to cut himself loose from FEAR.
Are YOU satisfied with not knowing the results of the Executive Summary?
