Only friends need ap­ply

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

As I get older I must be get­ting more cyn­i­cal about our elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment.

This ap­point­ment of Olive Crane to a cushy po­si­tion in the Lib­eral gov­ern­ment shouldn't seem like a pa­tron­age ap­point­ment be­cause she, ac­cord­ing to Richard Brown and Sandy Mac­Don­ald, is the most suited for the job. So they didn't ad­ver­tise it.

Like the pre­vi­ous Lib­eral gov­ern­ment only friends or rel­a­tives are suited for cushy jobs. Harold Green Iris
