Canada’s industry minister has apologised for suggesting it was not the Canadian government’s job to feed hungry children. James Moore told a Vancouver radio programme, “Is it my job to feed my neighbour’s child? I don’t think so.”

Mr Moore initially said the remarks had been taken out of context.

But he apologised on Monday after the broadcaster posted the full audio clip, and following pressure from child advocates and opposition politicians.

“Are there no workhouses?” A bit of seasonal joy and goodwill from another visibly over-nourished member of the Karl Rove Fan Club.
