Note to PVL: Apparently, it's "Bring Former Prime Ministers Back to the Hill Week"

Funny you should mention the whole as-yet-nonexistent public inquiry into the Mulroney/Schreiber affair, Colleague Wells.
Tomorrow afternoon the Ethics committee will debate the following motion, put forward by the one and only Pat Martin:

Due to the absence of any action by the Government to establish and begin the Public Commission of Inquiry into the Mulroney-Schreiber Affair I move that the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics recall Brian Mulroney to appear before the committee to answer supplementary questions and provide further details in relation to the third report of the committee Presented to the House on February 29, 2008 and the study undertaken by the committee giving rise to the report.

But that’s not all — apparently, there is a second motion on the table to investigate the in and out scandal, and whether the alleged illegitimate election advertising expenses meet the ethical standards expected of public office holders. Anyway, y’all can probably guess how your committee liveblogger will be spending her Thursday afternoon.
