James Moore today in the HOC:
“Mr. Cadman was going to run again,” responded Conservative MP James Moore, parliamentary secretary of public works and the government's point person on the contentious file.
“The only offer that was put on the table was the offer, as I said, to rejoin the Conservatives, get re-nominated as a Conservative, and that we would offer him any financial support that was necessary and mandated by Elections Canada – allowed by Elections Canada – to seek re-election.”
What Tom Flanagan said in "Harper’s Team: Behind the Scenes in the Conservative Rise to Power":
“The last thing [Cadman] wanted right now was an election. I knew then that we would lose the vote, which we did a couple hours later.”
That's another week's worth of scandal right there.
