NDP MP accused of being dishonest about two Conservative MPs


NDP MP Dan Harris’ stories about two Conservative MPs are quickly falling apart.

Harris first said this about Conservative Ed Fast:

Rising on a point of order after a particularly rancorous question period, New Democrat MP Dan Harris claimed that International Trade Minister Ed Fast had directed what he described as “an inappropriate gesture, a gun, while saying ‘Boom’,” in Ashton’s direction.

Which Fast denies:

Fast, however, categorically denied the charge and told the House that Harris “is making that up.”

“It’s completely false. I made no such gesture, I said no such words. I’m surrounded by my colleagues here, and none of them saw me make that gesture or make that kind of comment,” he averred, demanding that Harris himself apologize “for misleading the House. (see here)

And Harris said this about Conservative MP Ron Cannan:

“(Cannan was) yelling at me and he had to be physically restrained from coming at me . . . He was challenging me to come outside. That kind of behaviour has no place in Parliament,” Harris told reporters.

Which Cannan also denies:

But in an email to The Daily Courier, Cannan indicated he simply suggested to Harris that if he believed a gun-like gesture was made, he should repeat those inflammatory allegations outside the House of Common. (see here)

Would anyone be surprised Harris is making up these tales?





Christy Clark caught hiding then lying about relationship with company she now promotes as BC premier

RCI John Park christy Clark

Last week the revelation that Liberal premier Christy Clark was partnered with her ex-husband in a lobbyist company (see here) came to light and we now we find she is pushing a company in which she used to be chairwoman of:

A leaked contract shows that B.C. Premier Christy Clark once served as chairwoman of a B.C. company she now touts on official government business, raising concerns over ethics and conflict of interest.

Which Clark not only has never disclosed but when confronted by the reporter, lied about her involvement:

The Premier initially denied any relationship with RCI Capital Group and Mr. Park. “I don’t have one,” she said before acknowledging that “He’s been on a couple of trade trips with us.” The B.C. Corporate registry in Victoria shows that Ms. Clark was registered as a director of the company alongside Mr. Park. (see here)

Curious if Clark has shares as well?

Postmedia donated $10,000 to the BC Liberals


In a Global News segment where Dermond Travis from Integrity BC discovered some interesting political donations being made from people and corporations (see here), there was one that really caught my eye:

postmedia bc liberals

What is a supposed non-partisan media organization like Postmedia doing giving the BC Liberals $10,000?

Next time National Post columnist Andrew Coyne sneeringly writes about partisans, send him that above image and ask him why his employer is being a Liberal one.
