Yeah... let's work everybody up...

...into a frothing rage about the logos on some dummied up prop cheques... it's not like there's any real malfeasance out there...

-- MONTREAL -- Corbeil entered pleas to fraud and influence peddling during an appearance Wednesday morning at the Montreal courthouse. A third charge of conspiracy was stayed.

Corbeil says he will reveal who profited from the scam, suggesting more names will come out in connection with the scandal that helped to bring down Paul Martin's minority Liberal government in 2006.

and yet... the msm continue to bleat about the silly cheques... conveniently ignoring the irony of the accusations... not to mention the sky-high hypocrisy of their fiberal friends.

funny how that works, huh?

So putting the party logo on cheques backed by our tax dollars is OK because of adscam? In other words, every turd this government drops can be excused by the actions of a previous government. Childish,pathetic and predictable.

Um, Anonymous 1:20 ?. Those aren't real checks. They're props.

I bet you think they used real bows and arrows or swords in the old Errol Flynn Robin Hood movies.

"cc-nonymous whinges... every turd this government drops"

i dunno, nonny... why don't we just ask this guy...

OTTAWA; QUEBEC CITY - Jean Chretien, the Prime Minister, yesterday said his government had nothing to apologize for in seeking to reap maximum partisan political benefit from disbursing $1-billion worth of federal job grants across Canada each year.

He had always made sure since taking power in October, 1993, that voters were left in no doubt that it was his Liberals who were distributing such grants, he said.

"Listen," he added, "we are the government ... I don't see why we can't try to get credit for what we do. I hope we do so. There is nothing to be ashamed in that."


interesting that you're apparently okay with the corbeil thing.

once again, the inarguable wisdom of anonymous trolls.

No, of course not. However, it makes the Liberals uterly disengenuous to be behaved so outraged and scandalized when they've done much, much worse.

When tax advocacy groups complain about this issue (and they have), I as a Tory supporter do feel suitably chatised. But when the Liberals open their yap on this issue, lets just say that I don't take any lessons from them.

I'll submit that your point is that partisan use of tax payers dollars is wrong no matter how does it then?
Its kind of important because the next time you decide to comment here I'd like you to respond to this.
If the partisan use of tax payer dollars is wrong, no exceptions, and this is the point the liberals want to ride to electoral success, then would they be willing to submit to a confidence vote on eliminating that $1.95 per vote subsidy?
Remember the talking point was using tax dollars for partisan purposes. So which is worse, a governing party taking credit for a funding announcement, or tax dollars being fed directly to a political party for partisan use.

it's simply how these little errand boys roll.
