JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE RUBY DHALLA ABUSE OF CAREGIVERS BUSINESS   Leave a comment

JOHN CHUCKMAN
POSTED SERIES OF RESPONSES TO TWO COLUMNS IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL 

It’s time for Dhalla to step down.

The caregivers’ advocate who has just testified is a sincere and decent woman who has not the least reason to attack Dhalla, not even knowing who she was originally.

So we have four independent people speaking against Dhalla: the two widely quoted caregivers; the advocate; and another caregiver.

None with the least motive to attack her.

Indeed, were it as pleasant to work in Ruby’s home as Ruby claims, any caregiver would go out of her way to keep the job.

What is so crummy about this is that Dhalla, by sticking to her position, is effectively calling all these perfectly decent people liars.

We learned, from a previous poster under one Dhalla story, that Dhalla is known in Ottawa as a difficult person with whom to work, as well as having the highest turnover in staff of all members of parliament.

Funny how this advocate’s testimony precisely confirms this information about a politician she never knew about until now.

Have a little shred of honor, Ruby, and resign.

Ms. Dhalla does herself no favor by blubbering about conspiracies. It sounds a bit flaky, to say the least.

The committee may handle this badly, as the Conservatives handle so many matters badly, but public opinion is what is important in this matter.

Three women, all hard-working women from abroad, have independently said much the same thing.

They have no common motive for saying what they say, other than the wish for some fairness after considerable unfairness.

Why would Ms. Dhalla be the object of any conspiracy? She simply is not that important or controversial a public figure.

Of course, one is not guilty in courts until proven so, but here we are dealing with the court of public opinion, and it does not work the same way.

Sorry, Ms. Dhalla the court of public opinion thinks your behavior stinks.
