Mulroney Inquiry – The Oliphant in the room?

by

From the PMO backgrounder on Justice Jeffrey Oliphant, just appointed to head up the Mulroney/Schreiber Commission of Inquiry:


Justice Oliphant was appointed on August 22, 1985 as a Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Manitoba.  On December 24, 1990 he was appointed as Associate Chief Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Manitoba.  He was appointed a Deputy Judge of the Nunavut Court of Justice in October 2002 and is a former Chair of the Judicial Inquiry Board of Manitoba.

Not in the PMO backgrounder on Justice Oliphant, just appointed to head up the Mulroney/Schreiber Commission of Inquiry:

Oliphant was appointed a Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Manitoba, and later, Associate Chief Justice, by then-Prime Minister Brian Mulroney

That won’t be a problem, though, right? I mean, I’m sure the PM didn’t even know that he was appointed by one of the people he’ll be investigating — it doesn’t say a word about it in the press release, after all.
