OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper has dropped a $3.5-million defamation suit against the Liberal party over the Cadman affair.

A terse news release says Mr. Harper and the Federal Liberal Agency of Canada have agreed to settle all issues related to the suit.

The action has been dismissed without costs awarded to either side and both parties have agreed not to comment further.

Mr. Harper launched the lawsuit last March after the Liberal party accused the Prime Minister of condoning immoral, illegal and unethical behaviour in the Cadman affair.

The Liberals charged that Harper was aware of an attempt by Conservative officials to bribe Chuck Cadman, the late independent MP, in return for his support during a crucial 2005 confidence vote.

Hey what happened here??

Who let harper off of the hook??

And why??

Canadians have been cheated of the truth & this really makes me wonder.

If this was such a big deal in the first place with screams of wrong doing , then why has this gone away so quietly.

If Harper did something illegal then the Liberals should have forced this issue as they were the ones who brought this to our attention.

It just makes me wonder why this thing has been swept under the rug by both sides leaving the only losers you & I.

So what else is new.

GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY .... or Harper would have made sure to follow through on this. Not often the CONS drop anything.
Based on the Liberals need for cash these days, not surprising they settled. Most Canadians won't care about an incident involving 1 MP in 2005 ... too bad because we probably should find out exactly what happened.
