Maybe it’ll just go away.
The Harper government has not yet named the leader of a promised probe into the listeriosis outbreak that killed 20 people - a lag critics say discredits an already suspect process.
Harper promised "an arm's-length investigation to make sure we get to the bottom, on the government side, on the bureaucratic side, of exactly what transpired and to make sure as we go forward and we make changes to our system that this kind of thing can't happen again."
An independent report was to be finished by March 15. With less than three months to go, a senior government source confirms there's still no lead investigator.
The delay raises fresh concerns among food-safety watchers, who doubt Conservative commitment to overhauling what they say is a chronically short-staffed inspection system.
Big Daddy’s New Newer Newest Government™, boys and girls, the home of Leadership! Accountability! Transparency! Fuck you!
P.S. Adscam. Boo.
P.P.S. The difference, for all of the precious cretins on teh Right, is that Martin actually called an investigation into Adscam -- Gomery Commission ringing any bells? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
I eagerly await Big Daddy's swift appointment of just such an arm's length investigation. You'll forgive me if I refrain from holding my breath while I'm doing it.
