Self-pro­mo­tion top pri­or­ity?

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

June 30, 2015 was Gilles Arse­nault’s last day on the job and it couldn’t hap­pen too soon. Mr. Arse­nault ap­peared to be into the self-pro­mo­tion game in­stead of do­ing a good job as fed­er­a­tion pres­i­dent. While hold­ing his job as pres­i­dent he cam­paigned to be the Lib­eral can­di­date for Eg­mont with­out per­mis­sion from the mem­ber­ship and no leave of ab­sence due to ar­ro­gance and ig­no­rance. He lost.

Next he ap­plies for a job with the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion while still serv­ing as union pres­i­dent and wins the job to start in Septem­ber. This guy knows how to feather his own nest first and fore­most. He may have been pop­u­lar with mem­bers who didn’t show much in­tel­li­gence by hav­ing him serve a sec­ond term as pres­i­dent.
