Concerning Nigel Wright’s new (temporary) job as Harper’s Chief of Staff, what conflicts of interest (if any) exist between the following:
(a) Mr. Wright is only on “temporary leave” from Onex Corporation and according to a company statement will return “in 18 to 24 months to resume leadership of Aerospace and Defence and Energy verticals” (National Post, September 25, 2010).
(b) Canada’s untendered contract to spend $16-billion to purchase and maintain 65 new stealth jets and the professed spin-offs to the Canadian aerospace industry?
