What’s happened since then?
Well, two weeks after Guergis spoke, Maxime Bernier, essentially her boss, rang up his counterpart in Mexico. Then an official diplomatic note of protest was issued.
Then yesterday, Bernier met with the Mexican foreign minister in Washington, DC and no less than the Prime Minister picked up the phone and called the Mexican president. Meanwhile, Jason Kenney, one of Stephen Harper’s more trusted ministers, has been dispatched to Mexico to meet with Ms. Martin.
No doubt Ms. Guergis will be dispatched in the next 24 hours to lament the government’s ambulance chasing and the possible breach of international law it represents.
