Longest serving Speaker and crappy food


 

A special reception was held at the NAC to honour Peter Milliken, who recently became Canada’s longest serving Speaker. The food was crap, but the place was packed. Below is the Speaker and Labour Minister Rona Ambrose.

Longest serving Speaker and crappy food

  1. Title should have been: Longest crappy Speaker and serving food

  2. Milliken's nose and cheeks are always red in these photos. Perhaps he enjoys a wee dram for the occasions?

    I think you should also say what company catered the spreads at these events — incentive to work harder for what could be a lucrative plug from you, Mitchel.

  3. Who doesn't get to be called "President" in French?

  4. Nobody noticed the typo on the cake???

    • Félicitalions? They paid extra for that.

      • And the accent aigu on président..
