As Canada struggled with a tainted food scare last week, Health Minister Tony Clement was in Denver hosting a swanky luncheon reception at the Canadian consulate-general that included a bit of dry wit, the Toronto Star reported last week. The menu included bite-sized portions of beef, shrimp, tortellini and potatoes gratin. Invitees were greeted by the minister, who introduced himself: "I'm Health Minister Tony Clement, and I have to say I approved this food."
