Boy, I bet a few senators (the parliamentarians, not the hockey players) wish they had a little privacy right now! Between the latest on Duffy, Wallin and Brazeau, and then another senator's unfortunate remarks, it has been dramatic to say the least.
But honestly, given how much I enjoy a good cheese and charcuterie board, I really do understand how terribly upsetting it can be when you're made to eat really cold Camembert and broken crackers.
There is no question that was a dumb remark, but in addition to the sense of entitlement it suggests, it is also an example of how in this day and age, with Internet, a 24-hour news cycle and social media, a remark can catch on like wildfire like never before. And probably haunt you forever. You can't take it back!
On another note, I hope you take a moment to check out this week's real privacy news—especially an important employment privacy case that came out of the BC Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, detailed in articles further below.
Enjoy the long weekend and, while you're checking out #SenateProblems on Twitter, you can also follow me there too @k_klein.
