apparent violation of a federal code of conduct. Among the federal
departments Nault is lobbying is the Indian and Northern Affairs department
he headed until December 2003, according to a lobbying report Nault filed
with the federal government. Nault registered as a lobbyist for Nelson
House, now known as Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation, on July 18, 2005 — one
year and seven months after leaving his cabinet post. Under the Conflict of
Interest and Post-Employment Code for Public Office Holders, Nault is barred
from working for any entity with which his department had “direct and
significant official dealings” for two years after leaving office. He is

also approved David Dingwall’s expenses (Globe and Mail, October 4, 2005)
184. Last week, Public Works was also silent on details of another case
involving forensic accounting. Government accounts published on Thursday
showed a department employee had embezzled $3.45 million from Public Works
office in Koblenz, Germany. Even though the employee was convicted and
jailed in Germany, Public Works will not name him or give any details of the
crime (Ottawa Citizen, October 4, 2005)
185. The federal government inadvertently revealed yesterday that it is
conducting a large-scale forensic accounting probe into “possibly criminal
matters” when it published details of a contract intended for a Quebec
accounting firm. The notice awarding a $2-million contract for forensic
accounting services was published on the government’s tendering website,
MERX. It gave notice that Consulting and Audit Canada was planning to award
the sole-source contract to Leclerc Juricomptable, a Quebec City firm
specializing in forensic work and litigation support. The contract award
notice said the work had to be sole-sourced to Leclerc because it is “not in
the public interest to jeopardize the current investment in the
investigation or to significantly increase the risk to a successful
completion of the investigation into possibly criminal matters.” A spokesman
for the Department of PublicWorks and Government Services said yesterday
that the notice was published “prematurely” and would be withdrawn last
night. He could not say, however, what is under investigation, but said the
contract was not tied to another scandal that has kept Quebec forensic
accountants busy over the past years. “It’s not related to sponsorship or
Gomery, that I can tell you,” said spokesman Pierre Teotonio (Ottawa
Citizen, October 4, 2005). It was subsequently revealed that the department
involved was CIDA (CP Wire, October 4, 2005)

his companies (Vancouver Sun, October 7, 2005)

Sun, October 7, 2005)

contracts with a consulting firm that used to be run by Liberal MP David
Smith and now run by his wife, following a forensic audit of the contracting
practices at a federal agency (Globe and Mail, October 19, 2005)
194. ATI requests by prisoners for information on prison system and guards,
when information is actually disclosed
195. Liberal candidate Richard Mahoney lobbying for satellite radio company
for a month before registering (Ottawa Citizen, October 19, 2005)
196. Delays and ballooning costs mean a giant software project at National
Defence will eclipse its original budget and won’t meet its goals until
2011 — if at all. An internal audit obtained by Canadian Press raises red
flags about a new system designed to streamline computer tracking of
military inventory and purchases. MASIS — or Materiel Acquisition Support
Information System — started in 1997 as a $147-million undertaking. What
began as a focused effort to cover a single equipment category in each of
the navy, army and air force soon mushroomed. By 2003, Defence officials
estimated MASIS would be in place by 2006 at a cost of $325 million, more
than twice its forecast budget. A full introduction of the complex software
has now been extended to 2011. The heavily censored May 2005 internal audit,
released under the Access to Information Act, catalogues a litany of
“revised planned milestones.” “The prime contract has been amended six
times, each time increasing amounts for professional service fees,” it
says. (CP, The Record, October 24, 2005)
197. Hospitality and travel expenses of executives at CMHC (Journal de
Montréal, October 24, 2005)
198. Questions about Squamish land deal lease (The Province, October 26,
199. Liberals handling of tainted water at Kashechewan First Nation

    On the National yesterday, Susan Omiston did mention that the conservatives were essentially going to do something similar with the Halton candidate.

    Some thoughts on that.........

    1) Are they SURE they know what someone MIGHT DO??? I always think about doing dumb and wrong things like many people. So this to me appears to be an accusation at best.

    2) Is there something more concrete then what she offered.........I mean if it held some water, you think she would give it more time on the program, she only talked about it for 12 seconds........BUT ( and i mean a big "but")..........I think the CBC is scared for their jobs come Harper majority, and they have been keeping things balanced, and dare I say, a bit kinder to the conservatives as of late.

    3) If there is some wrong play from the conservative party, it's better to get things expunged then letting them sit and rot so they can be later ressurected. Let the Liberals sit on the Garth thing if they want, that shouldn't be our style. Complacancy is one of the worst things to have in the party. It leads to the mess the libs have.
