Loss of power blues 
(en francais)

This is just ridiculous, and if true, some staffers should be getting a 'quiet' bill for the cost of a replacement Blackberry. It should be interesting to watch the Parliamentary reports to see how many Blackberries were lost or damaged this year. This, along with all the shredding going on both in Ottawa and at the local level, highlights the need for tighter rules regarding transition.
Top picks for Canada's posts
By the end of last week, Liberal staffers had vacated their offices and handed back their BlackBerries — some quietly smashed theirs so the confidential messages and phone numbers wouldn't be given to the incoming government.
As for this:
There are whispers the Tories won't object if a parliamentary committee waters down some of the tough new rules, which only adds confusion to the party's official stance that the rules will stay as they were drafted.
Whispers? What, they couldn't even find an 'anonymous Conservative source' for this crap? I suggest the Star go back and watch the press conference when Stephen Harper announced the Federal Accountability act. It's very enlightening.
