Do unto others

by Aaron Wherry

Apparently invoking the sponsorship scandal as a comparison, the Liberals are pressing the Conservatives to allow a committee investigation into the G8 Legacy Fund to proceed. Despite holding a majority of seats at the time, Liberal members did allow the public accounts committee to investigate Adscam in 2004: 47 meetings were held over a period of four months and 44 witnesses testified. Alas, the Liberal members brought a halt to the proceedings in May of that year, shortly before an election was called. This greatly disappointed a young idealist by the name of Jason Kenney.

The Liberals “used their hammer to shut down the only inquiry in town,” said Kenney. ”The truth is that this represents a coverup,” said Kenney. “This represents a clear effort by the prime minister to stop difficult questions from being asked days before an election about a huge Liberal scandal involving the theft of millions of tax dollars.”
