Peter MacKay Under Investigation. As if They Weren't in Enough Trouble

As if they weren't in enough trouble, the Conservatives are again under investigation. This time it's Peter MacKay and his abuse of office.
The Public Service Commission of Canada is investigating the Harper government for appointing Conservatives close to Defence Minister Peter MacKay to senior positions in the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.

Since the Tories took power in 2006, at least 10 well-connected Conservatives have won plum jobs at Atlantic regional development agencies. Maria Barrados, president of the commission, which is charged with making sure governments don’t politicize the public service, told MPs on the government operations committee Tuesday that lawyers in her investigative unit have looked into the situation and decided to proceed with a complete probe.
Tax and spend, cheat and lie. Time to get rid of this government.
