Where Were the RCMP?

Conservative MP, Helena Guergis, believes Prince Edward Island is a shithole, as she has a meltdown in Charlottetown Airport [Globe & Mail, Airport worker says Guergis meltdown among worst he's seen]:

“She was yelling at the Jazz agent to hurry up and that [he was] wasting her time and that she had to get going because she wanted to get home [to her husband] because it's her ‘effing birthday,'” the employee said.
It was her 'effing birthday', after all.
“A staffer went to the gates to tell her to just hang on because she was literally banging and kicking on the glass at the security doors,” he said.
Where were the RCMP?

Updated: James Morton finds us another comment.
When staff reminded Guergis that passengers are expected to show up two hours before departure, she allegedly replied, "I don't need to be lectured about flight time by you. I've been down here working my ass off for you people."
It's her effing birthday, she works her ass off for us people, and she needs to get out of shitholes.

A wonderful Member of Parliament.

Updateded: There's some media controversy.

Did Helena Guergis refer to PEI as merely a "hell hole" or a "shit hole"? I think she should respond.

That lady should seriously decide if she wants to be an MP or not, before her constituents decide for her.

And the stupid Mounties sent all those Tasers to the wrong airport. Imagine Helen "riding the lightning"!
