Former Chef Suing Harper

The former chef of Stephen Harper when he was the leader of the opposition, is suing Harper and his wife for lost wages, emotional stress, and ruined reputation. Seems that Henrick Lundsgaard was told by Harper's wife Laureen, that he would only cook at official functions, not personal family diners at Stornoway. When Harper became P.M. Lundgaard received a letter on election day that said his services were no longer needed. Lundgaard claims his dismissal was "insulting, high-handed, spiteful, malicious, and oppressive."
Wow, is it just me or has it been become clear that the new P.M. is almost impossible to work with, if he isn't firing communication people, he is canning chefs..... No wonder Belinda, and Brisson walked out on the Tories. Has there been any good press at all post election for the Harper camp? Damned liberal media, but seriously Stevie has made it too easy. Can't wait until Parliament finally gets back to work, Harper's arrogance and political naivety is surely going to lead to a rapid Tory downfall, har, har, har.

I heard that this chef did not pass the more stringent security checks required to work for a PM.

The Harpers had no say in the matter. The decision was not theirs. For security reasons the details cannot be given.

One would think that if this chef was so close to the family he would have simply called laureen and asked for an explanation.

Now by taking this to court the security reasons will have to come out and that will hurt him even more.

Didn't think that on the day of the election, Jan. 23 the Harpers would be sitting around making out pink slips for household staff.

It was the PM's security people and they rule in these matters.

Apparently the housekeeper did pass the security tests and she could and did move with the Harpers.

Ugh... this is almost as ridiculous as people criticising Harper for shaking his kids's hands... Can we move on the more pressing matters please?
