Liberals Caught in another Lie – Working to Postpone Election

Former liberal Prime Minister Jean Chrétien has long been arguing that Justice Gomery has a political bias. Justice Gomery has done an excellent job of uncovering the wide spread corruption that permeates the liberal party. On May 30th of this year, lawyers for Jean Chrétien ended their efforts to have Justice Gomery removed from the commission looking into the sponsorship scandal. That same day, these same lawyers received a letter from the current liberal government who advised that if they ended their attempts to stonewall Gomery they would be free to reintroduce a challenge to Justice Gomery in an effort to delay the Commission’s final report. Paul Martin has said he will call an election within 30 days of that report’s release which is expected in December.

When knowledge of the letter surfaced last week, Conservative deputy leader Peter McKay asked the liberal government if this meant they would be trying to postpone the final report in an attempt to delay the election. The liberal reply was that no such letter existed and lawyers for the liberal government had not been advising the lawyers of Jean Chrétien on the subject.

This is another obvious liberal lie since members of the Conservative party are in possession of the letter which has been widely circulated. Once again the liberals have been confronted with evidence of their lies and cover-ups and once again the liberals are changing their story.

The liberal party now says that a letter did change hands, but that no deal was made to delay the final report of the Gomery Commission or the election. The fact remains that, according to lawyers for the liberal government, if Jean Chrétien decides to challenge the partiality of Justice Gomery again; the election will again be postponed.

Given what the liberals have done to avoid that election until now, it would not be a surprise if the liberals backed out of a deal Paul Martin made to Canadians during a televised address.

Deal? What deal? If they show you a video with Paul Martin grovelling -- you can bet it's been doctored to look that way -- Liberals are never sorry for anything.
As for the election -- I'd bet six weeks from tomorrow.
Now that Chretien isn't in court again making them look like they're in cahoots trying to stonewall Gomery, and they've spun the Grewal affair to their advantage, and the Conservatives seem to be tanking in the polls -- they have everything to gain by going now. Otherwise they'd have another 7 months of doing diddly squat and people might start to notice.

It appears that the Libs may be ready to throw a confidence vote, based on what I'm reading. Hmmmmmmmm....
