It's painful for me to say this, but the National Citizens Coalition once a lion, is now a pussycat.
Just check out this recent blog from the NCC website, where the group apologizes to a Tory cabinet minister.
Industry Minister Tony Clement was angry because the NCC has posted in its "Tales from the Tax Trough" booklet that he had spent $30,000 on a trip to Kenya.
And it was true, he had.
But Clement called up NCC president Peter Coleman to complain and amazingly Peter agreed to apologize and to delete the Kenya reference from the booklet!!
And the NCC didn't do anything to warrant an apology.
The NCC even posted a message from Clement on their site (Note they refer to him as "Peter" Clement).
All I can say is that when I worked at the NCC we never would have let a politician bully us like this.
Somewhere NCC founder Colin M. Brown is rolling in his grave.
