Bureaucrats expose bureaucrats

Yet the ban was passed, and will be once again as the purges gain momentum:

From the Red Star:

Public Works Minister Scott Brison has overturned a short-lived ban on the hiring of white men by the federal department.

Last week, the department's top bureaucrat sent a memo requiring all new hires from now until April to be "persons who are visible minorities, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and women."

Bureaucrats quickly leaked the memo to the media and the subject was taken up by talk radio stations.

[..] Deputy minister David Marshall issued a new memo yesterday.

"While the measure proposed last week was short term and not intended to be a ban on hiring individuals from non-designated groups, it could well lead to this impression," he said.
