Chuck Cadman’s Last Words
Enh. I didn’t know Chuck Cadman so I’m going to go with this scenario, that, because he knew he was about to shuffle off this mortal coil, he was easily talked into denying publicly that he’d been offered an illegal $1,000,000 bribe – just in case it ever came up – by the same people who’d offered it to him. I mean, if the New Conservatives were sleazy enough to offer a dying man a $1,000,000 life insurance policy to switch his vote and bring down a government, I’m guessing they’d be sleazy enough to say something later, after he refused, like, “Nice reputation. Shame if anything were to happen to it after you’re gone. But, you know, you could go on record as saying we never offered you a bribe and poof – these pictures go up in flames.”
I’m not saying it DID happen. I mean, what the hell do I know? I don’t know any of these people. Except that they’ve got all the power – almost – that they’ve ever wanted and are changing the very fabric of our country.
Let’s face it. Had you ever heard of Charles McVety before Stephen Harper and his Goody Alberta Party came along? Because he says he’s got power and influence with the Government of Canada that people like you and I can only dream of. Who knows? Maybe it was the spectre of Charles McVety running the show from behind the scenes that eventually repelled Chuck Cadman from the Goody Alberta Party:
But, like I say, what do I know? I don’t know any of these people. They all seem to have come out of the Blue.
Anyway, here’s a brief rundown of who Thomas Flanagan is, not that it means anything other than, well, you be the judge:
The Liberal Election Theme
Pants on Fire
“I knew Chuck Cadman very well,” Harper said. “The leader of the Opposition would have us believe that Chuck Cadman was offered a bribe, then went on national television and denied it ever happened. This is completely false, completely irresponsible and the leader of the Opposition should offer an apology.”
Offer an apology to whom, HeWhoDeniesSoAggressively? Chuck Cadman’s dead. And it’s not the Leader of the Opposition who would have us believe that, it’s Tom Zytaruk, Dona Cadman, Dan Wallace, and you, Stephen Harper, if that even IS your real name:
Harper is also quoted in the book, confirming some of the details. CBC News has obtained the audio recording of Harper’s interview, confirming the quotes.
The prime minister said his understanding of the offer to Cadman was that “it was only to replace financial considerations he might lose due to an election.”
Zytaruk stands by his book.
“I’ve got Dona saying that this happened and the executive assistant who was in the office with him at the time doesn’t really want to speak about it but says that Dona has no reason to fabricate anything, and Stephen Harper speaking his piece,” he told CBC News.
Okay. Well. I think I’ll believe the three people who have no reason to lie, thanks, Mr. Prime Minister
Why the Widow Is Running As a Conservative
From the allegation by his widow that New Conservatives offered a $1,000,000 bribe to Chuck Cadman (by way of a life insurance policy in his dying days) has sprung the question from various and sundry, “so why is she running for the Conservatives?”
Well, Dear Reader, I expect it’s because she’s a Conservative. And why should she have to leave her Party of choice just because some people in it are amoral to the point of being indistinguishable from mobster hooligans or Liberals?
I mean, I remember when a group of Goody Albertans wanted the Progressive Conservative Party to devolve its already-less-than-Progressive ideals and the Party said “maybe later”, so the Goody Albertans splintered off to form their own Reform Party which would later come back to swallow the old Progressive Conservative Party whole.
Why do you think that happened, Dear Reader? It happened because people who believed in those already-less-than-Progressive ideals didn’t hold fast to their slightly-less-than-legitimate principles and when the Goody Albertans came back to steal office supplies, they were able to swallow the Progressive Conservative Party whole.
Unless… wait a minute… did that really happen or was that a Star Trek episode?
