Smackdown – Peter Van Loan Scores on Ken Dryden

From the “When will the Liberals ever learn?” file comes this video. Ken Dryden tries to play martyr by complaining that the Conservatives do not listen to the common man and are more in bed with corporations.

What amazes me is that Liberal Dryden asks these questions on the day the Liberal Party is attempting to hold an illegal fundraiser which skirts Elections Canada donation procedures by not providing tax receipts in an auction where “The Sky’s the limit” and one that encourages corporations and associations to bid on the prizes.

One of those prizes happens to be attending a Canadiens/Senators hockey game in the company of…you guessed it…Ken Dryden.

In a world where corporations do not care about tax receipts and are more interested in “what politician is in their pocket?” this type of fundraiser flies in the face of the new donation laws that limit donations to individuals and set that limit at $1100 to a national party and $1100 to riding associations.

Stephen Taylor caught the fundraising scandal but Peter Van Loan provides the Smackdown.

    Congratulations to Stephen Taylor for exposing yet another example of Liberal chicanery!

    Paul (#1) you said a mouthful. But the people who should thank Mr. Taylor the most are the Liberals who would have been breaking the law had it not become as public as it did before the event.

    Joanne (#2) thanks for the link. This one hit especially close to home for me since I am in one of the ridings that would have been a beneficiary of this fundraiser.

    Gosh – a clever (not) partisan taunt!

    What terrific governnance! That Peter Van Loan sure must be a capable legislator and administrator.

    Three and a half years in Parliament, and Dryden still hasn’t figured out how to (1) ask a question, (2) re-word a question so he doesn’t walk into a smackdown he could have seen coming for half an hour if he had been paying attention to MPs’ statements and questions.
