Conservatives give special permission to Conrad Black to come to Canada despite him being a convicted criminal and had given up his citizenship in 2001. The NDP accuse the Conservatives of a double standard in letting in this criminal when they won't even let people who actually live and work in Canada back in.
For me, that Conrad Black is let in is okay, I really don't see what kind of damage that could do (as he's not going to murder people or something). The real problem is if the tories abused ministerial powers to let Conrad Black in because he's a fellow tory.
Environment Minister Peter Kent accuses environmental NG Os
of "laundering" foreign funds and when questioned whether he thought that environmental groups poised against his plans to expand oil sands development were committing criminal offences, he pointed toward senate committees who are now in the process of stripping certain organisations of charitable status.
How quaint, accuse political dissidents of being foreign agents. Can't wait for the Loyalty Police.
