The president of the Canadian Auto Workers union suggested yesterday that the RCMP was politically motivated in confirming an investigation into the Liberal government's income trust announcement.
Buzz Hargrove said it was not "proper police work" for the RCMP to confirm it was investigating a possible leak of the announcement in the midst of a federal election campaign, and suggested that it gave an unfair advantage to the opposition.
The outspoken union leader made the assertion on CBC Radio's morning program The Current, in which he was on a panel of political "mavericks," along with former Liberal MP Carolyn Parrish and one-time Conservative Deborah Grey.
Jack Layton didn't cover himself with glory when he propped up the Grits following Paul Martin's televised plea for clemency last spring. But even he wasn't so foolish as to claim that the Gomery inquiry and Adscam were oppoisiton motivated witchhunts.
What has Buzz been promised for his co-operation?
How much does he fear not being able to collect on that promise?
