It wasn't a politician, it was an aide, and it was in a private conversation at a 
social event, which was overhead by another reporter -- and it was the 2nd
reporter who reported on it. Jason Kenney is simply using this issue as a way of 
promoting his own party, and as his party is the official opposition, he's just
doing his job. But it's a tempest in a teapot. *No politician* said this -- Ducros 
hasn't been elected to anything, she's just Chrétien's communications
director.
