The problem for Shory is that it has now been revealed that he did in fact get served a Statement of Claim back in the summer of 2008, before he became and MP.
Senior Conservatives in Calgary are said to be upset because they did not know this at the time and it looks like he did not come clean and tell them during the vetting process.
...confirmed, but BMO has stated pretty clearly that Devinder Shory did know that he was named in the lawsuit back in September 2008. And that's how you would learn of such a thing, isn't it?...by being served with a statement of claim? But if so, that would make this statement...
Its worth noting that Shory's 2008 nomination run for the Calgary Northeast was quite bitterly contested, with accusations of impropriety on all sides. If word of the BMO suit had got out at the time, who knows what might have happened?
PS. It occurs to me that Shory's statement above is untrue whether or not he was served, as long as he learned of the suit last year and not through "media stories", which BMO indicates he did.
