No Wafers on This Train

By Susan Lunn, CBC News

It seems all is forgiven between the Irving family in New Brunswick and the prime minister.

Today, Jim Irving rode on a train with Stephen Harper before introducing him at an event to table an economic update.

But over the summer, it was an Irving-owned newspaper, the Saint John Telegraph-Journal, that published a news story alleging Harper pocketed a communion wafer during a funeral mass for Romeo Leblanc.

The paper was run by another Irving at the time. But in July, the paper printed a front page apology, and retracted the story.

And isn't it the church that teaches us to forgive and forget?
