People who are striving to become the leader of our nation should be a lot more responsible about their commitments. Don't forget that Joe Clark was ridiculed and labelled a loser for losing his luggage on a flight - and it wasn't even his fault. We can't elect a yahoo who misses important public meetings with lame excuses.
In addition, I want to give Kennedy the benefit of the doubt, but this sounds like a lie and I am very uneasy about being lied to so blatantly by a leadership candidate. I would like to see some evidence of this alleged breakdown... a tow truck bill, a CAA call log, or something of that nature.
It also sounds like Kennedy's French immersion is not going as well as hoped.
