Option Canada: omerta

Omerta is the vow of silence amongst mafiosi.

Oh, and it seems to apply to Liberals as well.

The Canadian Council for Unity signed a confidentiality agreement in the 1990s with one of its former officials who it alleged had misappropriated $300,000 in federal funds without alerting the government or law-enforcement authorities, sources have told The Globe and Mail.

The Montreal-based federalist group made the surprise revelation to officials at Canadian Heritage two months ago, fearing that a book by investigative journalist Normand Lester would reveal the existence of the confidentiality agreement.
