OTTAWA - A Liberal MP has apologized for saying about Americans: "I hate those bastards."
MP Carolyn Parrish was speaking to reporters about Canada's diplomatic initiative on Iraq. At the end of her comments Parrish said, "Damn Americans … I hate those bastards."
CBC reporter Susan Lunn who heard Parrish make the comment, says the MP then laughed as she was walking away.
In a written statement issued Wednesday afternoon, Parrish says she made the comments in the heat of the moment in a private conversation. She says they do not reflect her opinion of the American people.
"My comments do not reflect my personal opinion of the American people and they certainly do not reflect the views of the government of Canada," she said in her written statement.
