Never read about this in a MSM Canadian paper, did you?

Revealed: Canadian government spent millions on secret tar sands advocacy
Conservative government used public money on outreach campaign to counter criticism of controversial Alberta tar sands

From: "Stephanie Mc Dowall"
Subject:  Canadian government faces widening corruption scandal as election looms | World news | The Guardian

The PMO's office was too damn smart by half.  They were idiots.  The $90,000 was not tax payer's money.   Initiating a cover-up has created a scandal.  Stupid.   It is a red herring issue. There are other issues in Canada we should be far more concerned about.   The decrease in the value of our loonie, the increase in the cost of our food,  the various economic/financial issues that are causing so many Canadians to have to really struggle financially,  (This now includes our Middle Class and certainly many of our Seniors.)  Consider too the money Harper has not made available to our Health care system. 

I am also ticked off at the manipulation by the Saudis of the price of oil and the fact Canada is now so dependent on oil re our economy.  Stupid of Harper.  The devaluation of oil is solely to cause serious economic problems for Russia.  It is a true conspiracy.    Short sighted.   It isn’t working either.     Global Warming ??    Is this real or being artificially created ??  Lots of material on the internet to say it is.   Are we being manipulated ?    I bet we are.  Our Opposition Parties are all on the same page.   Nothing will change no matter who we put into power.   Nothing.    They are not discussing most of the serious issues negatively impacting Canadians and neither is our media.   S

With a centre-right party splitting Tory votes and Duffy scandal brewing, Harper, like Martin, also faces the court of public opinion

Re : "Nigel Wright opens the window on a PMO consumed with the Duffy problem, by Tim Harper. Aug. 12.

As reported by Vancouver-based The Tyee News (, a centre-right political party says it has had enough of Stephen Harper and will run candidates this election in ridings where a Conservative candidate barely won in 2011, in the hope of splitting enough votes to allow for a Liberal or NDP win.

The Progressive Canadian Party was formed in 2004 by some former Progressive Conservative party members who were upset at their party's merger with the Canadian Alliance in 2003. The leader of the party is Sinclair Stevens, a former PC minister under Brian Mulroney. "Our feeling is that if we have a credible candidate, they may take enough votes so that the Conservatives won't make it," Stevens said. "That may sound like we're supporting the Liberals, but our feeling is -- in this case -- the Liberals are better than Stephen Harper." He added that Harper seems to care more about corporations than Canadians, as evidenced by the prime minister's running a deficit rather than raise Canada's  low corporate tax rate.

Stevens said his party is looking for candidates in 15 Ontario ridings where the Conservatives eked out a win in the 2011. They are located around Toronto and Kitchener.

As for Duffy scandal, like former Prime Minister Paul Martin in the sponsorship scandal, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is also on trial in the court of public opinion.  In 2006, the economy was booming and the budget was in surplus. Yet, Mr. Martin went down in defeat because most voters didn't buy his contention that, as Finance Minister, he didn't know that former prime minister Jean Chretien was spending millions of dollars in the sponsorship program. In 2015, Prime Minister Stephen Harper faces the same public skepticism over his contention that he didn't know that his own chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote a cheque of $90,000 to repay alleged overspending by his handpicked, now suspended, Senator Mike Duffy.

Tim Harper is right when he says: "But voters should probably wonder about a bloated office purportedly running the country that was consumed with secret machinations to protect the reputation of a man abusing taxpayer money." This is also about protecting the Conservative brand which prides itself on fiscal probity and honesty.

"Transparency and Accountability" were the words
