John Crosbie visits Parliament Hill

Amusing quotes from the former Tory cabinet minister’s scrum

John Crosbie found himself in the House of Commons foyer yesterday afternoon. The 83-year-old cabinet minister, who served as Joe Clark’s finance minister in 1979 and several other portfolios during the Mulroney era, is a proud Newfoundlander. He was on the Hill as Newfoundland and Labrador celebrated 65 years in Confederation. Crosbie attended Question Period and scrummed with reporters afterwards.

Sarah Lazarovic illustrates some of Crosbie’s colourful quotes.
