Env. Can. Employee Arrested

An Environment Canada employee who has been accused of leaking part of the Tories new Green Plan last month has been arrested.

Regardless of what side of the debate you're on, I think we can all agree that someone who is guilty of a "breach of trust" should be prosecuted. (although I'm sure we'll see some leftists and eco-facists accuse Mr. Harper of being secretive and repressive over this...)

    The NDP have already brought this up in QP by stating the government had arrested a "whistleblower". So, the bleeding hearts are already crying foul. How is someone who leaked a confidential government document to the opposition a "whistleblower"?

    Would the NDP be asking a different set of questions if they thought the leak had led to a major corporation making lots of money? We probably won't hear too much from the libs after the income trust leak. When is someone going to be arrested for that leak?

    This employee was obviously granted a "secret" security clearance. A breach of security of this magnitude should lead to immediate dismissal. This, in addition to any criminal charges.

    Hopefully with loss of accrued benefits. This is not whistleblowing.
