NDP’s Charlie Angus wants RCMP reviewed on Duffy charges – Attawapiskat and Chief Spence, not so much


Politicians like the NDP’s Charlie Angus have no shame:

The NDP is asking Canada’s director of public prosecutions to look at the evidence collected by the RCMP in the Mike Duffy case to determine if charges should be laid against other people as well.

The Mounties have filed 31 charges against Duffy related to his housing and travel expense claims, accusing him of misspending more than $200,000. But Charlie Angus, the NDP ethics critic, is wondering why others haven’t been charged. (see here)

But back when he was confronted about the massive corruption occurring right under his nose:

When asked to comment on the as much as $250,000 salary Spence and her husband were reportedly paid in the fiscal year 2010-11, Angus, who has stood in solidarity with Spence, refused to comment, instead taking shots at Sun newspapers and personalities.

“That’s bull—-,” he told a reporter. (see here)

Yup, that the NDP’s Ethics Critic.

    Does anyone really think there’s any more to be gained politically by beating on Duffy or anyone else accused of overspending as members of the Senate? Has the well run dry for the NDP’s attack ammo against the Conservatives and the Senate ? What about copping out of all responsibility as Justin was advised to do, he sure didn’t come up with that one, that came from his brain trust. Disowning Liberal senators,is like telling Liberal Senators they’re not Liberals but they can and will vote as Liberals, that’s a real farce which is what the Liberals have reduced themselves to over the past three elections.
    One thing that’s becoming clearer, neither the Liberals or the NDP are fit to take the helm when they can’t debate issues that matter given the global situation, economic stability and threats to world peace. High school debaters could do better.

    Funny, no mention of the liberal senators nor the lpc for taking money from the general public to suit their own purpose nor, of Justin taking money from charities nor of the ndp favourite unions taking union dues to use on propaganda by the union bosses. I don’t see him crying tears for the natives who are been deprived of money for housing education etc by their chiefs-one of them is Spence whom he praises. I don’t see him calling on the NDP to repay the $1.17million. The list goes on and on.
    Why the NDP can get away with it just like the liberals, is because of their coalition signatures with each others and since the Canadian media reporters are beholden to the liberal party of Canada without questions, why not make use them to suit his ( C.A.) agenda without being questioned.

    I don’t expect the repo

    The CBC honoured him as “The politician of the year. Andy
