NDP calling for Liberal blood in London EDA scandal

The NDP is going after the Liberals with a full court press on the emerging London Liberal financial scandal, and the subsequent attempt to cover it up. They're calling on Liberal leader Stephane Dion to immediately suspend his Director of Finance and Administration Paul Dewar, who was the interim Federal Liberal regional director responsible for Ontario at the time of the alleged cover-up attempt.

From the NDP press release:
"The local liberal president says it was 'ill advised.' I'd call it cause for a formal investigation," said Dewar. "You can't cover the loss, cook and close the books and not call the cops. Financial shenanigans make ordinary Canadians lose trust in our political system."

Dewar called on the Liberal leader to address the issue immediately.

"It is baffling why Mr. Dion hasn't dealt with this issue. He needs to learn the lessons of the sponsorship scandal. You can't simply turn a blind eye to serious allegations like this," said Dewar. "Mr. Pretlove needs to be suspended immediately, pending the outcome of the legal case against his former employee Ms. Powlak."
Janke strikes again with tonight's hat tip.

    Now isn't this the most pathetic stance yet by the NDP? I mean, really, the issue is being dealt with - police called in etc.

    This is pathetic at best. Paul Dewar not working with his constituents this summer or working on "real" policies instead of worrying about ATM fees or something.

    What did the NDP do when Svend Robinson got caught stealing eh?

    The Liberals have finally done the right thing and they're still criticized.

    And, you call yourself a Christian. All you do is look for Inquirer type stories/blogging.

    Shame on you.

    Just putting forward stories of importance that the media, for the most part, wants to overlook.

    Just trying to keep them honest.

    And just for the record, the media is choosing to ignore this.

    Once again, trouble in Liberal-land, and the media chooses to ignore it. However, were this the Conservatives, you bet this would be front page news.

    Can you give me any explaination as to why that is?

    Easy... to them, it's Liberal = GOOD, Conservatives = BAD.
