Meanwhile, at Conservative Party HQ…

Heh. No kidding.

And the BT reaction? “But, but… ADSCAM!!!” Man, is that ever getting tired.

Update: You have to be more than a little amazed by the sheer arrogance and audacity of the “Conservatives” and their supporters. Can you imagine if the Liberal Party HQ was paid a visit by the RCMP? Why, the BTs would be shrieking from the rooftops about the corruption and criminality of the Liberals. Well, okay… they do that all the time anyway, but you know what I mean. But of course, when it’s the CPoC that gets the knock on the door from the Mounties (even though they were just there to “assist” Elections Canada in the serving of a search warrant), media coverage of the incident is casually brushed aside. “That slow of a news day, eh?” snorts our friend “Trusty Tory” without the slightest hint of irony. Quite telling is this passage:

That same Elections Canada who is currently being challenged in the courts by the Conservative Party over their little “rule” that they claim was broken.

How interesting that the word “rule” is placed in quotation marks. As we’ve seen so many times with this government, the prevailing attitude seems to be that rules are for other people. You know… the evil-doers... the lawbreakers; in other words, Liberals. There’s one standard for the CPoC and quite another for everyone else — when it comes to Harper’s gang, rules are made to be broken it seems.

Also amusing is this suggestion:

There are those out there who claim that Elections Canada is full of “professionals”, but I find that hard to believe when a well entrenched bureaucracy considers itself under attack by a Tory government that may be eyeing the privatization of crown corporations.

And yet again, we see the arrogant contempt for the folks at Elections Canada which is, as if a reminder was needed, an independent, non-partisan agency that reports directly to parliament. The notion that it would be privatized is ludicrous. I wonder who “Trusty Tory” has in mind for this task… Diebold? Good lord, what foolishness.
