Liberal cabinet minister Bill Bennett is making no apologies for calling New Democrats "turds" in a tweet last night.
Bennett says he's been called worse by the opposition.
Bennett says politics is a rough business and we stand up in the house and we call each other names in Question Period on a regular basis...perhaps not that particular word, but other words that are probably a lot harsher than that word, and it was said in fun, with tongue in cheek.
Bennett says he made the tweet after an evening with fellow MLA's but alcohol was not a factor.
