Liberal M-P Predicts P-M Will Continue To Be Hounded On Senate Scandal

Despite the suspensions from the Senate of Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau, the Senate expense scandal isn't over by a long shot. Prime Minister Minister Harper is expected to face more grilling during Question Period in the House of Commons which resumes this week. 

Beausejour Liberal M-P Dominic Leblanc tells CHSJ News the Prime Minister won't be able to put this behind him because most people don't buy his version of events. Leblanc goes on to say Harper is known as the most controlling Prime Minister in a generation so it defies belief to think he didn't know what was going on in his own office.

Leblanc also points out it is not out of the realm of possibility that Harper could be called to testify under oath at a criminal trial if charges are laid.

The Conservatives, meantime, have begun a new attack campaign against federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau. Federal Justice Minister Peter McKay is comparing Trudeau to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford both of whom he says used drugs while in office.
