Let's Really Open the Gates to Full Public Scutiny and Transparency

If you're like me I'm sure you're a true blue fan of Great Canadian Spectator Sports like sliding down the rink shouting "harder" and banging heavy rocks together. And of course there's mudwrestling in suits. And of course you share the fantasy of seeing Mr. Dithers and the Créton de Shawinigan have their moment of glory boxing before the so-called ethics committee. How marvellous it would be to see them duke it out in the Railway Committee Room, continuing their bathetic old charade and growling at Pat Martin's bossy questions.

"I ask you sir, what did you really know about Airbust™?"

And what about Shawinigate and Sponsorgate and Steamshipgate, real classic high end scandals compared to the efforts of The Person Who Must Not be Named to make a decent consulting buck after his departure from politics under the stain of the horrible GST and the tragedy of the Free Trade Deal?

I'm tempted to say, "Let's open up this whole can of worms and follow the money trail right into the political parties themselves. Let's look into the heart of darkness that is the natural governing party redux."

We could even invite the old German-Canadian Gnome back for comic relief.

Now that's scary.
