Baird timed jump perfectly

Obviously Baird has an affinity for precious metals in all their varied forms, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

With a notable degree of stealth, former foreign affairs minister John Baird recently slipped into his platinum federal pension parachute and leapt out the back door of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s wallowing airship.

There is no way of knowing if Baird feared for his political life, but we now know he timed his jump perfectly and landed safely in the luxurious board room of Barrick Gold, the largest gold mining company in the world.

Obviously Baird has an affinity for precious metals in all their varied forms. Ambitious people with a craving for the good life often do.
