As Dhallagate winds down into gray ambiguities (don't expect federal and provincial agencies to investigate Ms. Dhalla if the ex-caregivers won't file the requisite complaints, and so far they have shown no signs of wanting to do so), the folks at the Caregiversresourcenter, who were quite militant in their pursuit of Ms. Dhalla, have seen the writing on the wall and dialled down the rhetoric. Ka Rodel, who was instrumental in producing the Villaneuva retraction writes of an upcoming picnic at Earl Bales
Jason Kenney of Immigration, a representative of the Provincial Liberal and perhaps a Federal Liberal, hopefully Michael Ignatief so we can ask him to support our proposals [will attend]. I suggest we don't talk about the Dhalla affair so as not to antagonize the Liberals. We need their support for this issue and so with the NDP.
And so it appears to end. I heartily concur with this sentiment:
If Michael Ignatieff is serious about improving the representation of women in the Liberal Party of Canada and ultimately in Parliament, he should start by restoring Ruby Dhalla to his shadow cabinet.
In other words, this shouldn't become Judy Sgro redux.
