Cheri DiNovo has fired her three Queen’s Park staffers. The Parkdale-High Park MPP zapped them with late night e-mails – sent out on Labour Day, of all days of the year. The next morning she tried to un-fire them, blaming her managerial zeal on drinking too heavily and being affronted when none of them showed at her community BBQ. This was actually the second time that all of DiNovo’s staffers had been canned electronically, and rather than go back to await a third deletion the Parkdale Three have grieved their firings under the very strong caucus collective agreement.
I would remind everyone that I defended this lady against Cherniak and Kinsella and whoever was running the Lib War-Room in that by-election. So apparently I called one wrong. It happens.
But someone should ask Jack Layton: Yo Jack! Is there anyone in the NDP that doesn't abuse substances? And if not, how are you set for dime bags this week?
