On the plus side, at least this will offend a different demographic.
Yet another federal cabinet minister is being dragged into the Lisa Raitt taped-conversation controversy.
Environment Minister Jim Prentice is the second minister subjected to a less-than-flattering assessment from the natural resources minister.
Sources familiar with the tape say Raitt suggests her colleague is pandering to Alberta´s oil sands.
What makes that observation surprising is that Raitt _ as natural resources minister _ is responsible for defending the oil sands, while Prentice is responsible for reducing carbon emissions.
Sources say the Conservatives are bracing for more unwanted headlines from a five-hour audio tape obtained by the Halifax Chronicle Herald.
In the first such story, the Halifax newspaper quoted Raitt questioning the abilities of Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq.
The five-hour recording was made by accident and found by a Herald reporter.
