Well, it's finally happened. Inquiry groupies have begun to show up at the judicial probe into the relationship between former PM Brian Mulroney and lobbyist Karlheinz Schreiber.
In this case, two gentlemen travelled from Toronto just to be here in Ottawa for some of the testimony today.
Said one, "This is an important part of Canadian history."
Said the other, "We've been waiting for this day since the '80s."
When I asked them if they were groupies, they said that would be a good way to describe themselves. And they seemed to be getting their money's worth.
In fact, the two men spent most of the morning before the inquiry started chatting with Schreiber.
But, they said, they're interested in all sides of the story.
