Re: Flaherty influences CRTC how many times?

said by hm :

The title even stinks of corruption

The CRTC is arms' length from the government.

Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has short little fsckin' arms. Is all.

Canada finance minister apologizes after reprimand
»ca.reuters.com/article/domesticN···20130118

Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty apologized on Friday for breaking ethics rules when he lobbied on behalf of a constituent who wanted to set up a radio station, and said it was an "oversight" that would not happen again. ...

Hrmph. How about that. Influence peddling only requires a Canadian Government Minister to say, "it was an oversight".

Bet not many people know this little factoid in Canadian ethics law that governs Ministers.
