"The insurance policy for a million dollars, do you know anything about that?" Zytaruk asks.
"I don't know the details. I know that there were discussions," Harper replies on the tape. "This is not for publication?"
"This will be for the book, not for the newspaper," answers Zytaruk, who works for a Surrey newspaper.
Harper goes on to explain on the tape that the offer to Cadman was "only to replace financial considerations he might lose due to an election." He adds that the offer was carried out by people who were "legitimately representing the party."
He also tells Zytaruk that he knew there was little chance Cadman would agree.
"They wanted to do it, but I told them they were wasting their time. I said Chuck had made up his mind," Harper said.
Hmm......sounds very self-incriminating to me.
Do you suppose we should deal with this latest scandal in real time or after the fact?
After all, we wouldn't want Stephen Harper to be accusing Canadians, like Mulroney's mouthpiece Guy Pratte did ,that poor hapless Steve has been the victim of a “15 year jihad”.
What rhetorical nonsense whose only goal is obfuscation. Ditto Steve.
