Glad to see that the Conservative party is continuing to put the pressure on the CBC, and the Liberal party.
The Liberals are saying it's nothing, everybody does it, but I think not to this extent. The Liberals might have seen this as an opportunity to smear the Conservatives, but it backfired. Just like Schreiber is not gaining any ground for the Liberals.
The Schreiber/Mulroney thing is one thing, everyone, even Liberals realize that it's a non-issue, Liberals just won't admit it.
1. Pablo Rodriguez appears for the first time at the Ethics committee review of Schreiber/Mulroney. He is given time by a fellow Liberal.
2. A "mystery" reporter from the CBC, allegedly feeds Liberal MP, Pablo Rodriguez questions, that had nothing to do with Schreiber.
3. The Chair, Liberal MP Paul Szabo, allows the questioning, which was clearly outside of the committees mandate.
4. The Conservatives after protesting the line of questioning twice, force a vote on the issue, but are outnumbered by the opposition.
5. Former Liberal Cabinet Minister Jean Lapierre, says he was told about this the night before from a prominent Liberal MP.
6. Mike Duffy confirms on two separate shows, that a Liberal researcher told him that the CBC had given them questions, but they wrote them out. DUH!
7. Pablo Rodriguez goes on Mike Duffy Live, waves around some hand written notes, and declares, he wrote his own questions. No-one asks him why he showed up at the Ethics committee, to ask totally irrelevant questions to Mulroney.
I really think it stinks, because it was an agreement between the taxpayer funded CBC, and the Liberals.
Sure, reporters can ask Mulroney all the questions they want, but he can refuse to answer them. In committee, Mulroney, swore to answer all questions, so the CBC reporter colluded with the Liberals to get their questions asked. Do you know that companies in Canada can not collude, it's illegal. So, is this collusion between the CBC and Liberals illegal too?
