NAFTA-Gate Probe Will Now Include The Prime Minister's Office

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper resisted calls to fire his most senior official Thursday over remarks that triggered a tempest now sweeping over the Democratic primary in the U.S. election.

The prime minister deflected demands for his chief of staff Ian Brodie's head when opposition parties accused him of damaging the campaign of Barack Obama and possibly Hillary Clinton's.

Harper did not mount the same vigorous defence of his chief of staff that he did earlier this week, and did not even mention Brodie by name when opposition parties accused him of influencing the U.S. race.

He simply indicated that a probe into the so-called NAFTA-gate affair will not just include bureaucrats in the Foreign Affairs Department - but also his own office.
