Political panel, Nov 1: senate senate senate, and the Conservative convention
It seems there's ALWAYS more to this story about Senate expenses...whether we've heard enough or not. No doubt the prime minister's had HIS fill, after a second helping of Mike Duffy on Monday. But alas, it's not Stephen Harper's lot to curl up under a blanket at 24 Sussex this weekend. He's in Calgary, with The Base we keep hearing about - you know, those people to whom Senate expense rules were "inexplicable." Now, some of them are calling for an explanation of the whole affair.
Our political panel is following the drama in Calgary from afar this week, but there's plenty to monitor in Ottawa as well. In court documents obtained by CBC News, the RCMP allege that Senator Pamela Wallin committed fraud and breach of trust by making inappropriate expense claims between 2009 and 2012. For a look at the latest developments, we were joined by Julie van Dusen and Susan Delacourt.
