Do your job, obey the law, get fired

The Government of Canada decided to fire its nuclear safety watchdog.
Gary Lunn, the federal minister of natural resources who dismissed Keen, has already told the committee that she showed a "lack of leadership"
Except that she was not allowed to take into account any other issue than nuclear safety - by law. A problem that the Government actually recognised - because it passed special legislation to restart a nuclear reactor that would not be permitted to operate had it been built now.

Lunn should now be removed from the front bench. The Government of Canada must offer her a full and complete apology, reinstate her, and pay her a significant sum in compensation. Anything less is shameful.
