On the Take
This story's been around for a while, but now the dirty details are coming out. I thought the title of Stevie Cameron's blockbuster wasoverthe top, and I wondered why Mulroney didn't sue. Turns out Cameron was right. Now that the Refom-Canadian Alliance-Conservatives have assumed the mantle of Tories, they're vulnerable on this. That may not be fair, and people might argue that the party of Kim Campbell and Jean Charest paid the electoral price. But someone -- to use Harvey Kietel's wonderful phrase in National Treasure -- has to go to jail. Will it be Brian Mulroney? And will Harper, who developed a real friendship with Mulroney, disown the old crook?
