Making an example

It certainly isn't news that the head of Canadian Wheat Board president and CEO Adrian Measner was on the chopping block.

But the Cons' decision to follow through on firing him offers the highest-profile example to date of the Cons' all-too-obvious attitude that ideological fealty is a higher priority than competence or knowledge. And now that the Cons have provided such a well-publicized application of their warped mindset, it's not hard to anticipate the fallout extending far beyond CWB supporters to Canadians of all backgrounds who set their own priorities more sensibly.
