It is somehow fitting that yesterday it was quietly announced that Bev left a couple of weeks ago, and it’s not even clear whether anyone told her before it hit the papers.
Not only did she get replaced by the guy who’s been giving Parliament that codswallop about the F35 pricing for the last few years, but a fresh-breaking story just jumped the Dilbertean shark illustrating just how broke Ottawa’s integrity bank has become:
Halifax Chronicle-Herald (7/5 ’12): “Watchdog blasts ethics school for manipulating contracts”
OTTAWA, Ont. — A federal watchdog has blown the whistle on a series of cooked contracts at a government agency that teaches ethics to public servants.
Up here we make up for the gut-wrenchingly trivial amounts of money involved with the sheer audacity of the petty corruption 🙁
