Which does nothing to explain why he didn’t disclose the cash to Revenue Canada?

What is the meaning of "full true and plain disclosure" if not full true and plain disclosure?

OTTAWA — Brian Mulroney says he would have disclosed his cash relationship with Karlheinz Schreiber 12 years ago, if only federal lawyers had asked the right question when he gave sworn testimony as part of his defamation lawsuit against the government.

A lie by omission is still a lie.

Yep - reminds me of the old 'HERMAN' cartoon -

"JUDGE: Repeat after me... I swear to tell the truth...
WITNESS: I swerve to smell de soup...
JUDGE: The whole truth...
WITNESS: toll-booth...
JUDGE: ...and nothing but the truth.
WITNESS: an nuts sing on de roof.
LAWYER: Now tell us in your own words exactly what happened."

Disgusting isn't it - to pay to have the charade of democracy - from government.
