The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I’m dis­ap­pointed the Guardian would post Wes Sheri­dan’s photo on the front page of the Is­land news­pa­per. It surely shows both a dread­ful lack of news and poor taste. Sheri­dan sud­denly re­signed say­ing he needed to look af­ter his ail­ing wife.

But he and his wife are now in Hal­i­fax, Sheri­dan is work­ing for Morneau She­p­ell — old busi­ness part­ners of his whilst he was the P.E.I. min­is­ter of fi­nance. He is ap­par­ently pro­vid­ing ex­per­tise with the firm’s ac­tu­ar­ial pen­sion in­vest­ments.

I wouldn’t let him within 100 miles of my in­vest­ments, if I had any.

Next we have Robert Ghiz. He claims he is keep­ing busy do­ing some char­ity work. He claimed he had to leave be­fore his term was up be­cause he needed to spend time with his fam­ily.

Now a lit­tle birdie tells me he and fam­ily have sold and are off to Ottawa where he has a job with a law firm. More likely he wants to be nearby in Ottawa in case Justin throws him a bone.

Both th­ese ex-politi­cians would have you be­lieve their sud­den de­par­ture from govern­ment, and now more hasty de­par­ture from the prov­ince, has noth­ing to do with the e-gam­ing scan­dal or the court case about to land at the govern­ment’s feet.

This is an­other ex­am­ple of politi­cians feed­ing us a line and think­ing we will swal­low it. The only pos­i­tive I can take from this is the fact they are both off the Is­land. F. Ben Rodgers, Abram-Vil­lage
