Tony Clement cleared to continue pitching his constituents’ wares to China

  1. Tony Clement doing something ethically questionable for financial gain? Shocking surprise.

  2. Chretien brought Paul Desmarais along to China on almost every one of his official visits there. I’m sure I could find media pundits talking about how this was good policy.

    If you are a billioniare, it is okay if the PM introduces you to his Chinese friends. If you a small entrepreneur, it is a crime for your MP to say a few words about the company in a promotional video.

  3. He did use poor judgement in identifying himself as Health Minister, but other than that, I don’t have a problem with local MPs promoting local businesses. There are certainly more important reasons to go after Gazebo Tony. About 50 million of them.
