"All items are either disclosed properly or are in the process of being disclosed," said the official, who asked not to be identified.
Sweet. In the process. I'm not breaking the rules, I'm just following them very slowly. So slowly in fact that it exceeds the very limitations I put in place.
Under the new conflict rules in the Conservatives' public accountability legislation of 2006, all gifts Harper and his cabinet ministers receive valued over $200 must be reported within 30 days.
A compliance manager for Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson told The Canadian Press the office has not received notice of gifts received by Harper since his last report on Feb. 2. The last gift on that disclosure was a framed photo Harper received during a visit to Churchill, Man., in October 2007.
Yet again, the rules are for other folks to follow. You'd think that message would be clear by now.
