We should get the final list later today, but rumour has it that yet another Right Honourable will be dropping by Old City Hall later this month, to share his thoughts on the Mulroney/Schreiber conundrum, this time from a policy wonkish point of view: the Right Honourable Charles Joseph Clark, to be specific. Which – if true – would have to set a new record for former prime ministers to appear before a public inquiry. (Take that, Justice Gomery!)
