Well it looks like the Harper Tories have a full blown scandal on their hands.
Did they try to bribe Chuck Cadman with a million dollar life insurance policy in exchange for his vote in the House of Commons?
Sure doesn't look good.
Here's what Cadman's wife told the media: "Chuck was really insulted. He was quite mad about it, thinking they could bribe him with that.”
The only person who looks good in this story is the late Cadman, who was clearly a man of great character.
And that's really what caused the problem for Stephen Harper and his inner circle: they don't understand people who stand up for principle.
