As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have a GREAT job - I love it!
I work for the Canadian Federal Government in the Communications Office/Media Centre of the Privy Council Office. (Click HERE if you want more information on my department.)
Basically I review the overnight news - print, TV, and radio - and help create a non-partisan summary reports. The main audience for my early morning report is the Prime Minister of Canada and his staff.
Did I mention the PCO needs to be very non-partisan.
I am having some trouble being non-partisan.
Recently the main opposition party in Canada released a new environmental platform. It has been all over the Canadian media. As you can imagine much of my work is currently related to the media coverage of this new platform. It has been named "The Green Shift".
In all my reports and clippings I keep typing "The Green Shit"...not good.
Not good at all.
I am pretty sure this is considered to be a Freudian slip of epic proportions!
Non-partisan. Nope. Not me. Not today. Not on this Green Shit. Nope.
PS - This is not meant to be a political post. I am TOTALLY for solid environmental platforms with realistic and obtainable objectives. I am doing my personal best to reduce my carbon footprint...I just cannot type!
