He was entitled to his entitlements

Apparently the Tories are refusing to release the details of David Dingwall's now infamous severance package. They are censoring hundreds of pages of government documents with regards to David Dingwall. For those with short memories, Dingwall was harassed mercilessly by self-serving Tory blowhards like Brian Pallister when he resigned as head of the Canadian Mint, and used a technically correct but poor choice of words, "I'm entitled to my entitlements." Of course he was; one is technically entitled to one's entitlements. Normally a simple tautology wouldn't be so harangued, but the Tories smelt opportunity (or opportunism) and gleefully proceeded to destroy a good man's reputation, turning him into a poster-child for "Liberal corruption" and forcing his disgraced resignation. Of course, it was all a contrived show, as Dingwall did nothing wrong.

So is anyone really surprised that the Tories don't want to release the facts about this case?

They would prefer someone who would drive the Mint into the ground and not charge any expenses. I am quite sure Brian Pallister could have found a CEO of a Crown Corporation that didn't turn it around and charged just as many expenses. Their name would not have such a Liberal ring to it.

could it be possible that releasing details of how much coruption within our mint, the monitary center of Canadian Currency, might actually have the net result of having the Canadians Dollar now valued over 0.90 plumet??? and who would then be at fault for releasing the daming documents to the public and world media???
