On Friday's show, Candice Malcolm joined me to discuss her exclusive report on an $8 million contract the Bank of Canada had with Morneau-Shepell, a firm founded by the father of Finance Minister Bill Morneau.
Morneau's popularity has plummeted since he announced plans to raise taxes on the farmers and small business owners he called tax cheats. His hypocrisy was put display when it was revealed Morneau failed to disclose his company's ownership of a French Villa to the ethics commissioner, but that wasn't the end of his troubles.
Morneau opted not to place his shares in Morneau-Shepell in a blind trust, despite his influence over legislation that boosted the value of the company's stock and brought them more clients.
It would be like President Trump signing contracts on behalf of the American government with a Trump casino!
