The Liberals and their leader Justin Trudeau have been swept into the RCMP investigation of Bruce Carson as APTN reports their campaign chair, Dan Gagnier is now linked to him:
Trudeau’s campaign chair Gagnier helped Carson land a meeting between EPIC and provincial energy ministers, according to the RCMP.
The RCMP believes Carson’s work around the meeting constituted illegal lobbying.
Gagnier was also in the loop on Carson’s attempts to get EPIC’s agenda on the desk of Harper’s former chief of staff Nigel Wright. (see here)
I have it on very good authority that Gagnier has some very good Media Party friends dating back to his days as Jean Charest’s senior aide and I will be watching very closely to see if they try to defend or deflect for him.
