While the trough feeders of all trough feeders Rob Ford provides a momentary distraction from the Senate Scandal, Press Progress has posted a video reminder of ” The Old Duff” fundraising for the Conservatives in 2010. From their post:
“One of the defining features of the modern Senate is that, for decades, the government of the day has appointed party fundraisers, organizers and former staffers, tapped to do party work on the public dime.
That’s exactly why Stephen Harper appointed Duffy to the Senate in December 2008. Fast-forward to today, and the Prime Minister is desperate to cut him loose.
That’s difficult to do – and we’ve got the video that shows why”
A prime example of why partisan appointments of any kind do less for the people than they do for the governing party.
Kudo’s to www.pressprogress.ca for finding this prime example of ‘The old Duff’.
