It’s easy enough to imagine the Liberal indignation that would result from a hypothetical scenario in which a Conservative minister of the crown — one responsible for Indigenous relations, no less — behaved as Carolyn Bennett did this week. It’s safe to say, I think, that the Liberals would be satisfied with nothing less than a resignation. And they’d be right. Back here in the non-hypothetical world, however, Carolyn Bennett still has her job as Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister. Neither she nor the prime minister could find the courage or the principle to do what they surely would have demanded of anyone else. Based on her actions — and the timing of them — Bennett should have resigned or been fired.
