Is Dion giving marching orders to the FCM?

Wow... if there is any truth to these allegations, this could be very damaging to Mr. Dion, and to the "non-partisanship" of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities...
"Coun. Gloria Kovach says she plans to seek legal advice related to her ouster as president of the Canadian Federation of Municipalities, which she charges was caused by Liberal leader Stephane Dion.

She said the trouble began soon afterwards when she met with Dion for prebudget discussions. With her at that meeting, her first with the new Liberal leader, was FCM first vice-president Gord Steeves of Winnipeg.

Dion "was not very engaging. He did not have a lot to say to us," Kovach said.

Soon afterwards, FCM staff told her that Dion had contacted FCM and the Big City Mayors Caucus "to say he would not deal with FCM with me as president," she said in an interview Wednesday."
I posted on the ouster earlier this week, thanks to a tip from a friend in the riding... but this makes things stink a whole lot more.

I thought the Federation of Canadian Municiplaities was supposed to be a non-partisan group?

Consider this... yes, Ms. Kovach does have a CPC connection, but who was installed to replaced her? Gord Steeves... a failed Manitoba provincial LIBERAL candidate. Yep, like I said earlier this week, looks like Conservative = BAD, Liberal = GOOD.

Was there political pressure on this "non-partisan" group from the Opposition Leader's Office?
