Tory MP Dona Cadman, Cadman's Widow, Couldn't Be Reached For Comment

Speaking of people who owe Tom Zytaruk an apology, but probably will not offer one, Dona Cadman served as enabler at several crucial points in this whole story. She should be ashamed of herself.

I glanced at the headlines over on Blogging Tories and saw nary a mention of the great retreat.

The lies have served their purpose though, haven't they?

And the Liberals of course, decide that it's all "water under the bridge," I suppose.

It really is time to storm the Centre Block with torches and, while we can all still afford them.

Well, as an MP she does have an email....people could email her office with their views.

Ti-Guy said...

That doesn't work anymore.

And just where is the big victory for Liberals in this whole fiasco?

Yes, the Tories have been forced into a humiliating climbdown, and yes, it's pretty obvious to anyone with a brain that they realized they were going to lose and decided to cut their losses quickly and announce the deal when they thought nobody would notice it.

But what about us? Why did we agree to a confidential settlement? Did we agree to say nothing about the Cadman matter ever again? Did any money change hands for legal fees (since, as any lawyer knows, a formal without-costs dismissal does not necessarily mean there was no private agreement between the parties with respect to payment of costs)? Was there a deal on the budget?

Yes? No? Who knows?

Do we really think it's appropriate that we should be buying into this kind of secret deal? Do we not feel that we're under an obligation to be open with Canadians about what it took to settle this obviously unmeritorious lawsuit?

Self-congratulation strikes me as a little premature under the circumstances.
