Wasted phonemes, part two deux

Yvon Godin, NDP MP for Acadie-Bathurst and collaborator on previous wasted phonemes, wastes some more:

A New Democrat MP says the appointment of a unilingual anglophone to a federal Ombudsman's office is illegal. The hiring of Steve Sullivan, the first federal Ombudsman for victims of crime, violates public employment laws, New Brunswick MP Yvon Godin said yesterday.

The Acadie-Bathurst MP also said Mr. Sullivan's hiring is "immoral" because he can't represent francophones adequately. "The victims will finally have an ombudsman to file a complaint, but the entire Canadian francophone community can't speak to him," Mr. Godin said.

Maybe if they speak very slowly.
