Bedard, Pelletier and Groupaction.

Just when i went ahead and said all these great things about bedard, this erupts on ctv:

Bedard received car from ad firm chief: report News Staff

Olympic medallist Myriam B├ędard, who blew the whistle on Via Rail's connection with the federal sponsorship scandal, received a generous gift from the head of a Quebec advertising firm, says a report.

The Journal de Montreal reports that Bedard received a $70,000 Mercedes sports car at a banquet in March 1999. According to the report, the car was partly paid for by Jean Brault, the president of Groupaction, one of the Montreal advertising companies at the heart of the sponsorship scandal.

Now that's interesting. surely bedard must have known this would have come out, so why blow the whistle? maybe she thought that people would look past it, or wouldn't care.....but, in any case it looks like the kettle calling the pot black.

still, we haven't heard the last of this.
