#LavScam bodycount grows: top ‘crat craps out


  1. J.H. says:

    PM now bringing in Anne MacLellan for advice.
    Since she was a lib cabinet minister at time of Adscam, Sponsorship & Gomery, that somehow seems appropriate.

  2. the real Sean says:

    they are also talking about hiring a caucus liaison…. paying someone to listen to the caucus so that the leader doesn’t have to. because its 2019.

  3. whyshouldIsellyourwheat says:

    Didn’t Wernick have to resign because of an actual or potential RCMP investigation? And not for the baloney reasons in his letter. With an actual or a potential investigation, potential witnesses or subjects of the investigation should not be talking to each other, or the content of each conversation would have to be meticulously tracked.

    An actual RCMP investigation would make it impossible for Wernick to function in his job, would it not?

  4. Gord says:

    Good. His behaviour was one of the most outrageous aspects of this whole affair. In one fell swoop, this bozo confirmed years of Tory talking points about the permanent Liberal government in the upper echelons of the civil service.

    I’m sure his fingerprints are all over the Norman file too.

  5. Tod Cowen says:

    The smartest move by anyone on that side of the table in the midst of this fiasco. He was probably out after the election regardless of the outcome, and his reason has a decent ring of principle. Also avoids being known for having “resigned under pressure,” which was a significant possibility. So, he spends the summer at the cottage watching all of this unfold, from a safe distance. Can’t imagine the PM was thrilled–the optics might be good for Mike, but not for the Liberals.

  6. Don Johnson says:

    The hits keep coming! What’s next?

  7. Gord Tulk says:

    This is all going to make a great Netflix series one day…

  8. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    I congratulate Wernick.

    Appropriate move.

    • Max says:

      Gee Ron, maybe Bad Grandpa will run in the next election. And you can vote for him. You know, what better way to “congratulate” his “appropriate” move, were he to do so.

  9. Des says:

    Anything crazy going to happen before the budget is dropped tomorrow? Is anyone going to get up and speak on a point of privilege and maybe say a few things? We know the Justice Committee is going to basically try and quash this tomorrow.

    Matt… Warren… any ideas?

  10. Ian says:

    Carleton, not U of T

  11. Nick says:

    Are there enough in the liberal ranks who will fall on their swords to create a hill high enough behind which the PM can hide?
