A small but significant slip of the tongue had Canada's industry minister pleading for "more Canadian sex stories" on Monday, although he quickly insisted he was actually talking about success.[Previous TGIS]
"We need more more Canadian sex stories," Tony Clement told an Ottawa crowd during a speech on the government's digital strategy.
A roar of laughter prevented him from correcting himself for a few seconds. "We need more Canadian SUCCESS stories ..." he said pausing to emphasize the correction, "... like RIM and its world-famous -- and now ubiquitous -- BlackBerry."
"It really was not on my mind. I want to stress that for the record. It just sort of blurted out."
