Once again Postmedia’s Stephen Maher has written something that reeks of incompetence or worse, unethical journalism.
From Conservative Senator David Tkachuk:
Maher also writes: “When the case goes to trial, Duffy might argue that he had good reason to believe that he could designate his Cavendish cottage as his primary residence and pick up $90,000 in extra cheques from the taxpayers, because Tkachuk said he could.”
I told Duffy nothing of the sort. The Liberals were the majority in the Senate when Duffy was appointed; Liberal George Furey was chair of Internal Economy. Duffy might have asked the Liberals. (see here)
I’ve long ago quit believing Maher’s bosses at Postmedia would ever punish him for being untruthful – the only thing that will work, are lawsuits.
