The Harper party loved whistleblowers when in opposition. They even ran a high-profile one as a Conservative candidate. But when the whistle is blown against the Conservatives, no one actually contradicts the whistleblower’s sworn evidence, they just attack and spin.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/and-the-conservative-spin-machine-spins-on/article1372201/

On Thursday morning, to the apparent surprise of some observers, I argued on this blog that Canadians needed a public inquiry to get to the bottom of the allegations of torture and cover-up that Richard Colvin had made the day before in front of a parliamentary committee. After watching the Conservatives’ performance for the past two days, I’d say that Prime Minister Stephen Harper also needs a public inquiry–only more so.  Legitimate questions can be asked as to why Mr. Colvin did not blow the whistle earlier, which would have saved anywhere from 220 to 600 Afghans from allegedly being tortured. However, to attack his credibility, as Conservative ministers have been doing, is both pathetic and reprehensible. And to demand first-hand evidence, as they’ve also been doing, is precisely the same dodge that bureaucrats used to cover their asses in the Maher Arar affair. The Conservatives can’t allow light to be shed on the despicable lengths to which they have gone to hide previous coverups.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/blogs/spector-vision/advice-for-the-pm/article1372686/   

Cons is a great description of what the Conservatives really are like and many can see that anyway

PS: OTTAWA – Gilles-Andre Gosselin, a key player in the federal sponsorship scandal,  related to fraud totaling $655,276.  was   sentenced by an Ottawa judge to two years, plus a day.  charged last December with 19 counts of fraud for offences allegedly committed between 1997 and 2000.  The scandal undermined the Liberal government of the time, and paved the way for a Conservative government promising accountability and openness.  Now it is the Stephen Harper’s Conservative Government turn to be arrested as well for their clear  failure to keep these related promises.  

 Flaherty says government will undertake no new spending in next year’s budget Fri Nov 20, 6:28 PM TORONTO – Emphasizing that government stimulus spending is a temporary measure, federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says the Conservative government doesn’t plan to undertake major new spending initiatives in next year’s budget.

THEY SPENT VAST AMOUNT OF MONEY WITH NOT MUCH GOOD RESULTS  TO SHOW FOR IT, NOW THEY SAY THEY WILL DO NOT MORE. MAYBE IT IS BETTER THAT WAY. WE ALL DO  HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR LAST WASTAGES ALREADY TOO.
