Defence Minister Peter MacKay welcomed many of the dignitaries to Thursday’s announcement. But there was a slight slip- up.
After mentioning federal and provincial officials, MacKay, who represents the neighbouring federal riding of Central Nova, moved onto the municipal officials, including “our two mayors, Bob and Bob.”
A hush went through the audience before MacKay tried to correct with “Bill and Bill” before the third time was a charm with “Bill and Bob.”
I don't think Mr. Mackay will be parliament ready until at least June.
