Maxime Bernier and Julie Couillard




"Canada, I just want to take this opportunity to apologize for saying that you are the nicest people I have ever met. How terribly insensitive and ignorant of me."- Dooce.
I take it back (because of Maxime Bernier) and because of one of my readers, Danamite. Maxime Bernier, PC, MP was a Canadian member of Parliament and former Minister of Foreign Affairs. A businessman and lawyer, he was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the January 2006 federal election to represent the riding of Beauce. In August 2007 he became Minister of Foreign Affairs, but was forced to step down May 26, 2008 after a scandal involving an ex-girlfriend with ties to the Hell's Angels. Ahhh...you see, I guess our Canadian politics aren't as boring as I first suggested. We are human too. We slip up and make poor choices. You can read all about the anatomy of a scandal; the downfall of Maxime Bernier here.

And....it seems that this ex-girlfriend also caught the eye of a famous Texan. (President Bush)...On catching the eye of U.S. President George Bush at a reception in New York:
"Mr. Bush had a reception at the Waldorf Astoria hotel and we were invited. I had a chance to meet him. As I approached, Mr. Bush said, 'Maxime, well, well, well haven't you been keeping good company.'"-Julie Couillard (the ex-girlfriend with a history? of biker gangs and organized crime)

My, my, my. I think he's kinda handsome and I love her suit. See the detailing on the skirt. (She's lovely too.) Naughty Canucks. Oooh la la.
