It looks like there's a scandal brewin' up in Moslon & Labatts territory. Net is that it appears that our friends to the north could use some good old McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform. Actually, they already have similar restrictions, but like here in the US, enforcement is always the tough part.
From Small Dead Animals:
Canadian Election On Horizon?Hmmm, wonder if our "friendly" neighbors to the north will have their own "nixonian" moment... perhaps there's a chance yet for a political realignment.
The testimony at the ongoing Gomery Inquiry into the Sponsorship program, in which money was poured into Liberal friendly advertising agencies and possibly rerouted back to party coffers has reportedly heard "devastating testimony" over the past two days.
What it is, no one can say - the testimony is under a court ordered publication ban, on the premise that releasing it could prejudice other criminal trials. But it seems to be damning enough that both the governing Liberals and opposition parties are moving into high gear in preparation for the possible fall of the minority government.
Bloggers are beginning to dig, but it's uncertain what they can publish in Canada, should they uncover the details. (Perhaps its time to brush up on our "poetry" skills.)
I don't believe the bans extend to foreign sites, though...
