Question in the Commons: Has the ACOA minister investigated why staff bent the rules for Conservative insiders?
I posed the following question today (May 24th) in the House of Commons.
The patronage scandals don't end at social secuity - not by a long shot, Mr. Speaker.
We now know that senior officials with ACOA rigged hiring rules - they rigged the rules, Mr. Speaker - so friends and political staff of the now Minister of Defence could get work.
That in itself is reprehensible.
But the fact that the minister is washing her hands of the matter is worse.
Canadians deserve answers.
How about an answer to this question, Mr. Speaker:
Has the minister investigated why ACOA staff bent the rules for Conservative insiders?
Why did they break the rules in the first place?
