Scott accused of pre-judging inquiry results
A new APEC-related allegation surfaced in Parliament yesterday. An opposition MP said he overheard the Solicitor-General predict the outcome of the Vancouver inquiry.
NDP member Dick Proctor says he eavesdropped on Andy Scott while the two were travelling on the same plane.
Proctor says he took 11 pages of notes during the flight last week. He says he heard Scott tell a seatmate:
During yesterday's Question Period, Scott denied making the comments attributed to him by Proctor. Later, upon being informed of where Proctor had taken the notes, Scott said he can't remember the details of what he said on the plane, nor could he identify the person to whom he was speaking.
However, he said those are not the kind of comments he would make, because he hasn't formed an opinion on the APEC Inquiry.
The Solicitor-General is responsible for the RCMP. If Proctor's allegations prove to be true, Scott could be called on to resign.
