Senatorial shame

The Red Chamber should be called the Red-Faced chamber, if there were any shame among the senators

Re: The continuing saga of Senator Duffy.

The Red Chamber should be called the Red-Faced chamber, if there were any shame among the senators which there apparently isn’t. Shades of Bassi and Virk of the B.C. Rail scandal. In that infamous case, we, the tax-paying public, shelled out the $6 million to help keep the complete story of possible government corruption out of the news. In the federal case, $90,000 as a personal “gift” seems to have served the same purpose.

Money not only talks, in some cases it also serves to buy silence.
