Here's how you deal with the swine flu.....send body bags

    Yup, our idiot Conservative government in Ottawa responded to a northern aboriginal community's request for help in combatting an expected outbreak of H1N1 by sending body bags.

    Yup. Body bags.


    The federal government was left scrambling late Wednesday to explain the shipments, which also included hand sanitizer, masks and gloves.

    Each bag contained full post-mortem kits that included a chin strap, five tie-straps and three identification tags.

    The news of the unexpected supplies rippled through remote communities of less than 1,000 people, shocking residents and adding to native leaders' distrust of the federal government's efforts to help them prepare for a resurgence of the virus

    The Harper government has never been a supporter of any minorities in this country but this is a new low even for them.

    The irony is that the Canadian Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq is an aboriginal.

    I thought it was a rather practical inclusion.

    And they could have also shipped up some shovels to dig the graves.

    Even the most accomplished PR flack couldn't spin this one l guess that's the reason Health Minister Aglukkaq has formally (and rightfully) apologized.
