It's not like these allegations come as any surprise. After tossing MP Bill Casey out of caucus, the Con$ descended into character assassination in a bid to prevent him from being re-elected.
I find it interesting that both the CBC and The Globe and Mail actually carried this story, but it's suspiciously absent from the pages of the National Post - probably the best indication that there's more than a touch of veracity to the story. I'm sure if we had access to the telephone records for the National Post - and I'll bet that as soon as this broke, the phone lines in the National Post were being lit up by calls from CPoC headquarters telling them what to publish.
One hint to the keepers of the National Post - quit playing Faux News to the Canadian Con$, and start doing real journalism. You might actually sell something.
