Senate scandal: on CBC’s The Current this morn! (Updated)



UPDATE: Done! It’s on in a few minutes. You can listen here. I didn’t slug Gerry, or vice-versa. On it, I continue my quest to defend Nigel Wright. The NDP person talks a lot.


  1. Andy says:

    There’s snow on the ground in Ottawa this morning.
    Time for a Prime Ministerial walk?

  2. Rob says:

    I enjoyed the interview and agree that Duffy-gate won’t damage the PM as much as some of us would like. The challenge will be keeping party unity.

    On another note, when G Nicholls said Duffy’s the Miley Cyrus of politics, I was hoping he’d say Duffy’s a plus sized twerker!

  3. Niall from Winnipeg says:

    Hey WK,

    You’re slumming.
    The Current (with Anna Maria Double-Barrel-monti) is to independent impartial investigative journalism what the “Ministry of Truth” is to factual historicity.

    And, BTW, your regular poster Dan C. above, is an ageist/racist bufoon (but that’s OK, when you are a ‘progressive’)

    Keep the Faith,

    Niall from Winnipeg

      Name calling!! You must be a Conservatve.

    • Niall, If The Current is not impartial, who is? Which Canadian journalists would you recommend as closer to impartial? Ezra Levant? I have heard Anna Maria Tremonte say many times that the Conservatives were asked to provide a comment but no one returned their calls or was made available for an interview. The CPC would dearly love to muzzle the CBC. Harper studiously avoids the CBC, opting for private stations who are eager to lob softball questions his way.

    im watching more QP and have been since the robocall scandal. Im pretty sure many canadians are tuning in to listen to Mulcair hammer Harper…and thanks to Duffy the public is engaged. I hope it continues. I hope the duffinator has some more dirt to finally bring down the PMO and Harper. Warren will know what laws were broken. But the following is making the rounds on socialnetworks and blogs…saying that the RCMP should already have enough to charge someone…Wright? the PMO entirely…and Harper if Wright ties him in.
    Bribery of judicial officers, etc.

    I listened to it and thought you were quite the gentleman.

    And now for something completely different…….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZMbTFNp4wI#t=98
