Canadian professor appointed Minister in Italian government by mistake, wtf ...
In what Italian media is calling a "comedy of errors," the Italian government mistakenly appointed a University of Guelph professor who has been living in Canada for 28 years as the new Italian junior minister of agriculture this week.
And even though the appointment was meant for another prof with a similar name, many say the Canadian-Italian man -- who happens to be an agriculture expert with connections to the Italian business industry -- is the better man for the job. And as a dual citizen, he would have qualified.
"I am absolutely delighted to be in Canada. I am in Canada by choice. But Italy is my birthplace. It would have been a great opportunity, an opportunity to serve one of my two countries," said Francesco Braga.
Braga was online in the wee hours Tuesday to find out who was appointed to the new Italian government when he saw his own name listed on the government site.
