hmm. Gurmant Grewal. Tapes. Editing. Pizza. Ujjal Dosanjh. Ambassadorships. Tim Murphy.
Sounds like a made-for-TV Movie.
I thought about posting on the Grewal tapes, but there seems to be a huge saturation of Grewal-gate related blogging out there. I would recommend Buckets of Grewal (one of the better and entertaining Grewal resources), Calgary Grit, Section 15, Mr. Cherniak, and Rational Reasons.
My take: the ENTIRE thing looks shady. If the tapes were edited (as it looks they may have been) then it gets even more shady. What do you think the chances of the Grewal’s being booted from the CPC Caucus are?
Also, props to the good senator for the following. I enjoyed it quite a bit!
In the beginning was the Plan.
Then came the Assumptions.
But the Assumptions were without form,
And the plan was completely without substance.
And the darkness was upon the faces of the workers.
So they spoke unto their group heads, saying: “It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh!”
And the group heads went unto their section heads, and sayeth: “It is a pail of dung, such that none can stand it!”
And the section heads went unto their managers, and sayeth unto them: “It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none here may abide the odour therof.”
And the managers went unto their Director, and sayeth unto him: “It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength.”
And the Director went unto the Director-General, and sayeth uto him: “It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”
And the Director-General went unto the Assistant Deputy Minister, and sayeth unto him: “It promoteth growth, and it is very powerful.”
And the Assistant Deputy Minister went unto the Deputy Minister, and sayeth unto him: “This powerful new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of the department, and this area in particular!”
And the Deputy Minister looked upon the plan, And saw that the plan was good.
And the plan became policy…
