Are the Harper Cons insisting nobody should be paid for any fundraising speeches for charity or education?
Won’t that mean that taxation will have to go up to cover the shortfall then? A case in point. In Alberta at a small college, their athletics department booked Wayne Gretzky to speak at their annual fundraising breakfast for their … Continue reading
Thinking of attending Georgian College, you may want to reconsider apparently signed contracts are not necessarily meant to be honoured there.
The PMO thinks contracts should not be honoured and the MP of the area that includes Georgian College agrees. “I don’t know why he wouldn’t do it for free even before he was an MP. He didn’t charge the Liberals … Continue reading
Q: Why do charity events bring in high profile speakers? A: To raise money for their good causes. Q: Why do they pay people to speak at these events? Doesn’t that cut into their profits? A: It does, but the … Continue reading
Say it outside the house Big Boy – Dean Del Mastro acts like James Moore in using privilege to protect him.
Dean DM joins James Moore as another outspoken coward in the ranks of the Harper government. Moore made false accusations of conflict of interest against an NDP MP safe in the knowledge that his privilege would protect him a while … Continue reading
UPDATED – It appears that the attack on Trudeau earning was born in the PMO which could mean that the Grace Foundation is engaging in political activity – oops nice charity status you had there.

Under pressure from such stalwarts of ethical behaviour as Brad “Bilderberg” Wall and Jason “liar” Kenney Trudeau has folded like a cheap suit. What a shame, I’d have donated the money to another charity; like one that doesn’t shill for … Continue reading
Ivison runs a sad kind of interference for the PM – So I assume he thinks the Cons should pay back all their salaries as they’ve single handedly created this massive deficit.
So much for the party of business and the economy, apparently a contract isn’t binding anymore. The foundation hired Mr. Trudeau for a fundraising event through his speaking agency, Speakers Spotlight, for $20,000 (plus HST). Sounds fair to me. We’ll … Continue reading
FIFA under Sepp Blatter is not only one of the most corrupt governing bodies in world sport (on a par with the IOC) but can’t even follow their own procedure. In an action that completely undermines the CSA, FIFA have … Continue reading
Elections Canada has a vendetta against Harper Government MPs in much the same way as the Police have a vendetta against pimps, rapists and child pornographers – it’s their job.
A third Conservative MP has joined Glover and Bezan in taking EC to court because they never thought to ask about an issue and plowed on regardless. Jeff Watson MP for Essex, apparently thought that signs used in a previous … Continue reading
It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye – Mulcair, Parliamentary Security and apologists like Tim Harper.
I find it somewhat disturbing that those on the left are making excuses for the actions of their great hope for the next PM and his behaviour in accessing Parliament yesterday. Apparently it’s not he biggest scandal on the order … Continue reading
