“…You hold people responsible for their own actions; you certainly don’t hold subordinates responsible for the actions of their superiors.” Stephen Harper
Okay, Harper, if we continue with that sort of rationale then Nigel Wright, your subordinate at that time, should not be held responsible for the actions you must have signed off on, since you are too much of a control freak to let something like this big ol’ cheque to cover Duffy’s sins go by without your approval…problem solved..
Mulcair is right..Nigel Wright is on the stand, but Harper is on trial…
Nigel might be willing to take one for the team, but no one is fooled….and the beat goes on. By the time that Duffy’s lawyer is finished, the entire PMO will probably be implicated as complicit..Oh, and some Senators and members of the Conservative Party too…
Funny how your past efforts to discredit similar sorts of payoff schemes engendered by Liberals, decades ago, come back to haunt you, eh, Emperor Steve….?
