Getting all of the credit, but none of the blame.

Gosh, it sounded so promising just a couple days ago (emphasis added):

PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. (CP) - The orderly rescue of dozens of people from a sinking ferry in the dead of night early Wednesday off B.C.'s north coast was nothing short of miraculous, the president of B.C. Ferries said Wednesday.

"Anytime you have a major incident and you have no one hurt or killed in this type of thing, I think you always think it's a miracle," David Hahn said. "You always think, thank God, and you (are) thankful for the crew. That's what they're trained to do. They've done their job once again."

Uh oh ...

Two passengers are now believed dead and questions are being raised about the safety of a B.C. ferry that sank after being ripped open when hitting a rock.

Um ... how 'bout them Leafs, eh?

Don't ask about the Leafs.
Let me put it this way: Ottawa's clinched a playoff spot, while Toronto's clinched tee times at all the good golf courses in Ontario.

It's called spin. But David Hahn can spin all he want, those two passengers are most probably dead.

Shouldn't there be some kind of award for people who make statements in such serious circumstances and proven to be wrong? What do you think, Canadian Cynic?
