It looks like the Liberals got the cover they needed to bestow a golden-parachute severance package on Dave “The Chiclets Kid” Dingwall.
Yesterday an auditor concluded that Dingwall’s infamously lavish expenses that he racked up while heading the Royal Canadian Mint was more or less within the public agency’s guidelines.
That may be so, but I wonder what a “moral audit” of his expenses would turn up.
Was it really moral for Dingwall to throw tax dollars around on his foreign travel junkets? Was it really moral for him spend more than $700 on dinner? And is it really moral for him to now demand a rich severance package?
Those are questions you can’t answer by studying receipts and guidelines.
Not that it matters.
When it comes to taking care of their cronies, the Liberals don’t care much about morals anyway.
