Senate offers no shortage of sleazery

What a one-two punch of Tory sleazery in Friday's Yukon News. On Page 14: "Public purse helped underwrite Duffy's presence at Whitehorse Food Bank Event." On Page 15: "Former PM Brian Mulroney says upper chamber 'badly in need of reform.’”

What a one-two punch of Tory sleazery in Friday’s Yukon News. On Page 14: “Public purse helped underwrite Duffy’s presence at Whitehorse Food Bank Event.” On Page 15: “Former PM Brian Mulroney says upper chamber ‘badly in need of reform.’”

Ay carumba – this couldn’t be the Brian Mulroney, fingered for accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in “cash-stuffed enveloped from Mr. (Karlheinz) Schreiber on three separate occasions,” according to Justice Oliphant?

I think Canucks ought to take the musings of the former PM on the ethically-challenged Senate with more than a grain of salt. (An Airbus-sized salt lick, perhaps?)
