OK, so I've mentioned that there may be a scandal brewing at public works.
Reformer Jacques Gourde announced it in the House, then Reformer Christian Paradis, ran out the door, tripped over the guard and posted on his official website that there was no scandal.
Well, he now says that he got it wrong and there is indeed a scandal.
But then with Parliament prorogued they could have it all cleaned up by the time they decide to get back to work.
Whew! I'm exhausted. But there you have it folks. THERE IS A SCANDAL AT PUBLIC WORKS! What it is, I don't know, but if it involves the Reformers, it's probably a doozie.
‘Secret’ investigation at federal department troublesome: Grit MP
November 29, 2009
OTTAWA — The secrecy shrouding an investigation at the federal department of Public Works and Government Services is waving red flags that must be examined, say the Opposition Liberals.
Public Works and Government Services Minister Christian Paradis on Friday confirmed that an internal investigation is underway at the department, but would not say what it was about.
He made a statement to “set the record straight” and confirm the investigation had nothing to do with the sale of real-estate properties.
“If it doesn’t have to do with the sale of federal properties then what is being investigated and why all the secrecy?” said Liberal MP Martha Hall Findlay. “So much secrecy still raises flags.”
