OTTAWA - Jean Pelletier has been fired as chair of Via Rail over comments he made about former Olympic gold medallist Myriam Bédard.

Bédard said last week that she was forced out of her marketing job at Via after she raised questions about excessive billing by one of the companies at the heart of the sponsorship scandal.

Pelletier responded by calling Bédard a "pitiful" single mother who was trying to attract attention to herself. He later apologized under pressure from politicians of all stripes, including Prime Minister Paul Martin.

johnny? steve-o? meet the new jackass.
