Put the bull out to pasture

Minister of Veterans Affairs Julian Fantino needs to go, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

Julian Fantino has been acting like a bull in a china shop ever since he became the Minister of Veterans Affairs. He’s all horns on one end and bovine dung on the other.

Fantino must believe he has job security because of Stephen Harper’s bizarre aversion to admitting any of his ministers make mistakes. I wonder how much longer his government will stoically shovel up Fantino’s droppings.
