Remember, these are the cream of the Liberal Party, the folks who said they were most qualified to keep Canada's financial books...
As of Tuesday -- that is, nearly seven years after the leadership race in which Liberals picked Stephane Dion to lead them -- four candidates still owed money.Yet they still call themselves "honourable members." Can anybody tell me why?
Dion owed the least, at $7,500, while Ken Dryden still owed a hefty $225,000. Hedy Fry had $69,000 in outstanding debt while Joe Volpe had yet to repay $97,800.
The candidates were given several extensions of the original 18-month deadline to repay their loans.
