Da Mystery of da Gomery
When I come out you won't even matter
Why you act dumb like "Uh, duh"?
So you act dumb like "Uh, duh"
--Missy
Gomery.ca is entertaining.
Mr. Guite: In the case of Mr. Saunders, which I assume was the Auditor General
[...]
Mr. Fournier: No, Mr. Saunders is not the Auditor General
[...]
Mr. Guite: Who is Mr. Saunders?

Mr. Fournier: Attourney for the Government of Canada.
Andrew Coyne has the details of the globe's take on the new testimony.

Kinsella gets some more unfortunate mentions...I guess he is going to have his hands full defending himself on this front. I guess this is why he has been hating on Guite for the last while...he realized Guite was no longer in his camp.

BTW: One of AC's readers (Tom) points out V&B's contributions to the Liberals
Vickers & Benson Advertising Ltd 1997 Business Liberal Party $18,791.75
Vickers & Benson Advertising Ltd. 1998 Business Liberal Party $14,952.42
Vickers & Benson Companies Inc. 2003 Business Liberal Party $14,078.57
Vickers & Benson Advertising Ltd. 2000 Business Liberal Party $13,933.40
Vickers & Benson Advertising Ltd. 1996 Business Liberal Party $6,442.50
Vickers & Benson 2001 Business Liberal Party $6,005.20
Vickers & Benson 1993 Business Liberal Party $6,004.60
Vickers & Benson 2002 Business Liberal Party $5,989.10
Vickers & Benson Advertising Ltd. 1995 Business Liberal Party $4,713.29
Vickers & Benson Advertising Ltd. 1994 Business Liberal Party $2,941.61
That's a lot of big cash. I wonder what arrangement the Liberals made with V&B to ensure continued sponsorship deals.........like, uh, more contributions........

Note on the testimony:
There are some legitimate questions about the sponsorship of immigrant owned businesses since there was the impression that this demographic was firmly in the pro-federal camp for the referendum. It's not like its that relevant, though. By now its obvious that unity is just was excuse to shower Liberal friends with cash.
