Self Righteous Tories Better Have Proof Of Accusations Against Elections Canada
OTTAWA -- Angry Conservative MPs attacked Elections Canada on Wednesday, accusing the non-partisan agency of leaking news of the RCMP raids on the party's national headquarters to the media and to their Liberal opponents.
"Somebody should ask who in Elections Canada invited the Liberal party to make a home video out of the visit to our headquarters. It's very curious as to why Elections Canada would make an invitation to another political party to be part of [Tuesday's] circus,"
Pierre Poilievre - Conservative MP
Conservative officials stuck to the party line that the raid is directly linked to a civil suit. One of them, speaking anonymously Tuesday, said the police action underlines the party's long-held contention that Elections Canada's case against the party was weak. It is almost 'Mugabesque'
