Why Mike Duffy deserves to be in a home.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper says language used this week by [Senator Mike Duffy], whom he recently appointed to the Red Chamber, was "perhaps inappropriate."
In his maiden speech to the Senate on Feb. 3, Duffy said P.E.I. Premier Robert Ghiz may get the "shaft" by getting in bed with Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams. Ghiz and Williams have been protesting a cap on equalization payment increases in the federal budget during a period of economic downturn.
Before the Red Chamber, Duffy described the pairing as a "grotesque scene" in which Williams, the premier of a wealthier province, would likely "come out on top."
