Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in the Prime Minister’s office with convicted international influence-peddler Karlheinz Schreiber. The inscription reads, “Karlheinz with best personal regards Brian Mulroney”.
Sun News, which is looking to launch a Fox-style “news” channel in Canada, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quebecor of Montreal, whose board of directors includes former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. So you know it’s on the up and up. No envelopes stuffed with cash and left undeclared as income for more than a decade. No using his position and stature to enrich himself or his company. And Quebec of course is celebrated world-wide for its scandal-free culture in business and politics alike. Scandal is a stranger (l’etranger) in Quebec. So graft, bribes, kickbacks and favor-trading during the upcoming CRTC hearings are an outside chance at best. If Brian Mulroney can do for Sun News what he did for the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada (1942-2003), we have nothing to worry about.
