Re: Hiebert backs Harper’s criticism of Duffy, May 23.
MP Russ Hiebert was quoted as saying, with reference to the Mike Duffy affair, that “anybody who is not here to serve Canada should find another employment.”
I assume Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) is referring to the $90,000 of taxpayers’ money that the senator wrongfully claimed and repaid. My question to Hiebert is, “When do you intend to find another employment?”
Duffy’s misappropriation of taxpayers’ money is quite insignificant, as compared to Hiebert’s spending of $600,000 of taxpayers’ money on travel expenses in the 2009-’10 fiscal year, to which he purportedly said, no doubt with a shrug, that’s “the price of democracy.”
