RCMP to concentrate on Goodale next week

From the Globe & Mail:


Finance Minister Ralph Goodale says that he and other government officials are scheduled to meet with the RCMP next week as part of the criminal investigation into whether the federal government's plans for income trusts were leaked.

Mr. Goodale confirmed yesterday that he discussed the plans with "one or two senior" government officials outside his staff and the Department of Finance before announcing them Nov. 23, including Prime Minister Paul Martin.

So now it's "one or two" senior officials? One wonders exactly what the Liberal's definition of a "senior official" is.

Angry In The Great White North links to this previous statement by Pat Breton:

Pat Breton, a spokesman for Mr. Goodale, said yesterday that Finance officials met on the night of Nov. 22 for two or three hours and came up with the plan that became the next day's announcement on income trusts. He also said that the Prime Minister's Office was told after that Nov. 22 meeting — either later that night, or the next day — about the decision. The policy development was “entirely an internal Finance” effort, he added.


Now compare that with:

Mr. Martin confirmed yesterday that he and others in his office were told about the income-trust decision before it was announced, but late in the process.

He would not say exactly when his office was informed, or identify the other individuals.


The PM will not say exactly when he received notification, and you would think reporters would be following up on this.

Most interestingly:
Mr. Martin did not answer directly yesterday when asked whether he is confident there was no leak from his office.


Martin answered with:

"The fact is first of all, we're dealing with Opposition allegations and that's all we're dealing with, and we're dealing with Opposition allegations during an election campaign.

"The RCMP obviously have a responsibility to follow up on matters such as this - that's their job - and they're doing it. But the fact is the RCMP have also said that there is simply no evidence to demonstrate that those allegations in fact hold water."


That's just avoidance. Martin obviously has absolutely no confidence that the leak did not come his own office.

The National Post also mentions a Decima Research survey.

The survey found that 14 per cent of undecided voters said the criminal investigation made it certain they would not vote Liberal, while 25 per cent said it made them less likely to vote for the Grits.


Those are bad numbers for the Liberals. Quite probably losing almost 40% of the undecided voters at a stroke could (hopefully!) doom their campaign.
