Merv Tweed becomes the latest Conservative MP to fill his bank account using the huge legal loopholes available to retiring MPs:
Tweed was appointed Monday as president of Omnitrax Canada Inc., just hours after announcing his resignation from the Commons. (see here)
Tweed was chair of the House transport committee from April 2006 until September 2012 and joins other Conservatives who have enriched themselves using these same loopholes like ex-minister Stockwell Day (see here and here) ex-House Leader Jay Hill (see here) and ex-minister Chuck Strahl:
a consultant lobbyist with Chuck Strahl Consulting Inc, is arranging meetings on behalf of his client, Cascade Aerospace Inc, with the Minister of Jobs, Tourism, and Innovation (see here)
You seriously have to start wondering if there anyone with an ounce of shame within the Conservative caucus?
