Jean Chretien Is Canada’s Biggest Embarrassment

Jean CretienJean Chretien has been voted the The Most Embarrassing Canadian for 2004 (a contest I previously reported on):

Although Canada has two official languages, Chretien seems to speak neither very well, which may explain how he managed to lead three straight majority governments. Nobody knew what he was talking about, but, in typically Canadian fashion, we were all too polite to mention it!

  1. He was a great man, and sadly wasn’t allowed to run things for the rest of his life. I’ll take him over any PM i can remember!

  2. Don’t know if Chris is joking, but I agree with him. Chretien may have made a few blunders (cutting funding to education and health care was a big one), but he didn’t have an underhanded agenda like Paul Martin and most other politicians, past and present. What you saw is what you got, and even when I didn’t like everything he was doing, I like the way he did it. And he was absolutely correct when he said:

    “A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It’s a proof. A proof is a proof. And when you have a good proof, it’s because it’s proven!”
