Muzzling MP's and preventing Parliament from seeing documents are incidents that are typically viewed through a partisan lense. Many feel that the Committee's demands for documents went well beyond what is normally requested or expected, and that this was due to obstructionist tactics on the part of Liberals (NDP/Bloc) The Committee system was hyjacked by the Opposition and ended up not investigating actual issues/concerns, but attempting to undermine the government. Why else do we investigate someone who did not even get any money. Why instead of looking at whether or not Karios desered to get funded did we focus narrowly on "who notted the not on an internal document" -- see: http://tinyurl.com/3btyler
Income Trusts, etc. were political decisions that many supported -- Forier is a non-issue, non-story. It is all political haymaking and smears. The Liberals have contributed greatly to the disfuctionality of the recent Minority Parliaments. And this will be the behaviour that will be rewarded by Andrew and I presume yourself.
