Schreiber the drone

If Brian Mulroney did indeed discuss a potential military procurement deal with Karlheinz Schreiber while still Prime Minister then it raises serious questions about the former PM's judgement. And who arranged the meeting? Elmer MacKay, father of Peter. And it now appears Schreiber funded the deposal of Joe Clark as PC leader with foreign money and from no less than the former Premier of the German state of Bavaria -- if that's the case then Mulroney never had the right to be leader of the party to begin with, let alone Prime Minister.

Schreiber keeps dropping names at the House Ethics Committee. One was Benoît Bouchard, one of the very few Ministers in the Mulroney Cabinet who managed to avoid controversy.

We keep getting bits and pieces. And the longer this goes on and Schreiber plays cat and mouse, the more he sounds like the incessant monotone drone from a set of the bagpipes. If Schreiber has been sub poenaed, and he was, he should be forced to give answers now under pain of contempt of Parliament. We need answers and we need them now.
