More Open, Honest, Accountable Government, Harper Style

Remember a bit of a dust-up over "convention fees" as political donations? Let me refresh your memory - the Conservatives took in a huge amount of money from a convention just prior to last election, and when it was revealed that they didn't declare these funds in their campaign finance disclosure they claimed all sorts of things about how they 'weren't really donations' etc.

Well, it appears that they are amending their "Accountability Act" to open a loophole so that they can have it their way - at least in the future.

Remember, this is a government that ran on being open, honest and accountable. When they are held accountable, they try to change the rules? Really? Just how "accountable" is that?
