Maxime Bernier resigns - letter of resignation

The Right Honourable Stephen Harper
Prime Minister
Room 313-S, Centre Block
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0A6

Prime Minister,

This is to inform you that I am resigning my post as Minister of Foreign Affairs, effective immediately.

I informed you late this afternoon that last night I became aware that I had left behind classified government documents at a private residence.

Prime Minister, the security breach that occurred was my fault and my fault alone and I take full responsibility for my actions.

I have asked the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade to conduct a thorough review of the situation.

Thank you for the trust you have shown in me. I will do everything I can to serve the government well in my capacity as Member of Parliament.

Yours truly,

Maxime Bernier

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Maxime Bernier resigns - letter of resignation:



(ex)hell's angel. Heads a security consulting firm with potential airport security contracts. Hell's angels deal drugs. Drugs come from middle east. Foreign Minister deals with middle east. Foreign minister has inside info on airport security. Leaves documents in (ex)hell's angel's apartment. It's going downhill fast.

Harper needs to make an example of this idiot.

By the way, I've heard there's no such thing as an ex-hell's angel. Not living anyway.

More like CON idiots need to make an example of Harper. Harper and his clown wannabe Roves all knew about this stuff from day one and they chose to lie to Canada for 4-6 weeks now.

They seem to have forgotten how seriously Canadians take the Hells Angels as a threat.

Harper's words, today: "I don't take this subject seriously"

No majority now, ever.

Resign, Stevie.

Please people get over yourself.
Maxime is not worse than any of us.
Who are we to judge him.
I am sure that worse has been done by a number of peoples. He was set up by his sweethearth after he decided to end it with her.
She is another woman that has no conscience but somehow she is always a VICTIM. Give me a break
They all know what they want and they don't care how or what they need to do in order to do it
So as far as I am concern start looking in your
own back yard and then let's talk about it.
I still will vote for him .
