This week, new allegations are breaking of a conspiracy at the highest levels of Canada’s government, directly implicating Prime Minister Harper himself and his top officials in a scheme to cover-up the senate expense scandal.1,2
After personally appointing these top Conservative Party fundraisers to the Senate, Prime Minister Harper and key leaders in his government are now trying to place all of the blame on Senators Brazeau, Wallin and Duffy, and thereby escape accountability for their own actions.3
The best way to make sure that the full truth comes to light is for the RCMP to conduct a full investigation that goes right to the top, including the Prime Minister and his key officials, with public reports, followed by criminal charges wherever warranted.
The RCMP are facing enormous back-room political pressure. They have a duty to respond to complaints from citizens, yet time and again, we’ve seen that ever greater numbers of public complaints are necessary before the RCMP will fully investigate sensitive political matters.
