It appears our Attention-Deficit news-gathering organizations have forgotten him. Thanks to Red Tory, much remains of that disgusting chapter in the ongoing saga of corruption in the highest reaches of the Contempt Party's PMOpolitburo.
It's worth remembering Carson, in light of the treatment Kathryn Smithen received from a panel of Law Society of Upper Canada reviewing her application to the Bar.
“Despite her horrendous behaviour in the past, she has come to grips with all of the reasons that propelled her to act so badly and has made a commitment to herself and others to conduct herself with honesty and integrity,” wrote James Caskey, on behalf of the three-member panel.From here. The *horrendous behaviour* that was alluded to?
From 1979 to 1993, she was charged five times with 39 offences, she says, including fraud, theft of money and credit cards, and forging documents. She got 18 months in jail.Smithen also worked as an escort to support herself and her daughter.
I do wonder if the Cons believe that funding a lobbying instrument for Carson to advance the Alberta tar sands development is *horrendous*.
A word of advice; don't be drinking and reading the priceless comments thread that follows Red Tory's blogpost.
