In John Ivison’s tribute column to Conservative Senator Doug Finley (who died Friday) is the admission that Ivison and Finley were friends:
We became friends, despite the convention that we belonged to separate clans and never the twain should meet. (see here)
This is the second time recently that Ivison has revealed being tight with people he writes about as last December he mentioned being tennis partners with then Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney (see here).
How many more Ottawa insiders and players are buddies of Ivison and who does he choose to either make look good or bad because of those relationships?
