Averted Scandal at the Canada Wheat Board!
Warren Kinsella recently reported that MP Reginald Alcock (Winnipeg South) almost purchased the domain name www.regalcock.com... The truth is even more shocking.
Further investigation has revealed that the President of the Treasury Board did in fact have his website located at www.regalcock.ca for a good five months, but then decided to change his internet address to www.reg-alcock.ca sometime around October. The last thing the Minister responsible for the Canada Wheat Board posted at www.regalcock.ca was this Joint Statement by President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Paul Martin on Co-operation in the struggle against terrorism on October 10.
I can’t believe the media missed this! During an election year no less! No, they were too distracted by the ol’ www.belinda.com vs. www.belinda.ca business. (Liberal media bias at work or sexist media bias at work? If Conservative, pick the former. If NDP, pick the latter. If Liberal, pat self on back. Again.)
Anyway, On the Fence has sent an e-mail to Minister Alcock’s office asking for an explanation as to what prompted his sudden domain shift. We’ll get back to you soon. (That’s the regal we.)
