Mr. Speaker, convicted fraudster, Bruce Carson, was a key advisor to the Prime Minister until 2008, and he did not leave because he was fired. He left with $40 million to perpetrate an even greater fraud, starting two phony think tanks to take the stink off the oil sands.
However, his greatest scam was yet to come; using his Conservative connections to exploit the appalling living conditions on a first nations reserve. What kind of a man sees human tragedy as an opportunity to cheat people and what kind of a government would give such power to such a horror of a human being?
Mulroney used to say that the boys have to make a living but we thought we had closed the door on that sordid chapter of Canadian politics. It seems that history is repeating itself.
Contempt for Parliament, ignoring the rule of law and letting loathsome parasites try to fatten themselves on the third world conditions of first nations reserves are all things that lead us to the conclusion that the Conservatives are not fit to govern.
