From the article;quote:
"The Conservative government is rejecting opposition demands for the removal of a Tory MP whose name appears in an offshore tax probe.
"During question period Friday, NDP finance critic Thomas Mulcair said MP Andrew Saxton "simply cannot continue in his role" as parliamentary secretary to the president of the treasury board during the investigation and "has to step aside."
"Government House leader John Baird dismissed Mulcair's demand, calling it "a drive-by smear" and adding: "I regret that the member would come to this place and ask that kind of question."
"Saxton, during his previous career as a banker, approved a transfer of funds on behalf of a Canadian taxpayer to an account in Switzerland that the taxpayer set up to help evade taxes, CBC News and the Globe and Mail learned."
I would say he was custom made for Harper's government. One thing we will never find out is the extent of off shore accounts that most politicians have that house their "gifts" from lobbyists. Ain't just the Reform/Conservatives either.
No doubt... Martin and Canada Steamship Lines might be (retroactively) included in that.
The Tory Act of Contrition...
"Forgive me, Harper, not for sinning, but for being caught."
