The loan story just keeps on going and going …
You might recall that this story started with Gary Mason in the Globe and Mail. He now has some more reaction to some of the shennigans over the last few days.
Basically he is saying that neither side has covered themselves in glory – and indeed he is remarkably even handed in his criticisms of both sides. Of course he is also the only one who knows who leaked the story – and of course he is not saying. Good journalists protect their sources. But he does seem to cast some doubt over the presumption that he has seen the copy of the report that Peter Lander says he left on the table in the meeting room and that later turned up on the desk of B C Lee. Or does he?
Anyway, he now has a series of Very Good Questions – but somehow I doubt that either side will be in a hurry to answer any of them.
The politicians haven’t been nearly as forthright with the public as they should have been either before or after details of the loan came out.
And on that front, Vision Vancouver has just as much to answer for as the NPA.
