Looking forward to your comments on this infographic. I’m trying to see whether using such visual tools are a good idea when discussing public affairs. Do you find this amusing/helpful or mostly annoying?
The weekend killing of Afghan civilians by – we believe – a rogue US Army soldier is inexcusable. No warrior worthy of the name takes innocent lives like that – sixteen of them, including 9 children. That’s despicable, and dishonourable. And yes, it’s also the most counterproductive thing anyone could have done, for it will certainly add a great deal of tension to an already unpleasant situation.
In an interview broadcast on Global News and published on the Internet on March 7, 2012, I referred to Responsive Marketing Group Inc., also known as RMG, in the context of the current so-called robocalls controversy.
I did not intend to impugn any notion of illegal behaviour to RMG. In that sense, my statement was ill-advised.
I am firmly of the belief that in the matter of robocalls, the investigations currently being conducted should run their course and that they will find the truth of what actually happened.
I apologize for any harm that may have resulted from my statement of March 7.
