A C/C/N EXTRA: Watch dog or lap dog?


BELOW(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)30)(30)(30)(30)(30)30)30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)(30)
        
APPOINTEES RESPONSIBILITY: To the office assumed or the Government?
        
        
A fellow by the name of Adrian Measner was fired by then Minister of Agriculture Strahl.  The Board of Directors of the Canadian Wheat Board,
        elected by wheat farmers and to which Measner was responsible supported continuance of the Board as sole marketing agent for wheat.

        This statement was made ""The government needs to be confident that as an appointee, Mr. Measner will actively support the government's position".
        when he was fired.

        Why was Linda Keen fired? For not fulfilling the responsibilities of her office or not acceding to the demand of the Minister whose Department
        had not ensured the conditions of a license were fulfilled fourteen months after it was granted ?
        
        The message to those holding office at the pleasure of the Government is clear, at least to me: support "the government's position" or be fired.
        
        Rather than transferring links google's assistance has been employed to provide you with information on this latest brouhaha.

                 Joe.
