A sucker bet
Congratulations to Licia Corbella for saying what most Canadians journalists and columists are afraid to say. As for your new belief, that's a sucker bet that I wouldn't even take with David Dingwall's new found riches.
Gomery didn't finish jobWe should start a pool on the next "aberration" that will be discovered once the books are opened in Ottawa. Early money would be on the Auditor General's next report, but my cash goes here. Personally, I think it's going to make Adscam look like chump change.
Millions remain mysteriously unaccounted for in Liberal AdScam
By Licia Corbella
A couple of days ago, I was reminded of a bet I made and had conveniently forgotten about.
Bruce Hutton, leader of the Separation Party of Alberta, bet me way back in May that the Gomery report into the Liberal party's sponsorship scandal would be a whitewash.
I vehemently disagreed.
I said then Justice John Gomery was a diligent fellow who would leave politics out of his decision and would dig until he found the truth.
Needless to say, since I am a believer and supporter of Canada, Hutton and I disagreed on many other topics too.
Nevertheless, we agreed that the loser of this bet would have to buy the other person lunch.
Now I know questioning the impartiality of Gomery is bordering on sacrilege in Canada owing to his almost rock-star popularity.
Nevertheless, it's safe to say I owe Hutton lunch.
