Elections Canada warrant signed by Liberal Appointee

...Whose office is a four hour drive away from elections Canada headquarters...and who has donated to the Liberal Party....more than once.

Ouch. Nice sleuthing.

The optics don't look good and play into the hands of Tory arguments that the warrant was an unnecessary move. Added to the fact that the media was tipped off (and, allegedly, the Liberal Party to boot) and was therefore present with cameras ready, this quite frankly raises the stink factor surrounding this whole business. Don't expect Tory brass to use this information openly, however - impugning the reputation of a judicial figure wouldn't look that great from a government that has already had controversial relations with it's civil service. It will be interesting to see if this story has legs.
