The Ethics Commissioner

Democracy Watch makes some good points about the departing Ethics Commissioner, Bernard Shapiro. Under the Chretien and Martin Liberals, the "Ethics Counsellor" and, later, the Ethics Commissioner, were a running joke in Ottawa. The Liberals would be exposed in some piece of sleaze and almost automatically "cleared" of any wrongdoing by these Liberal-appointed lapdogs.
Here's the link to Democracy Watch's statement about Shapiro's resignation, with a list of his failings and a demand that he does not get a severance payment.
