Poor Gerald Keddy.
He's the Tory MP taking all the heat because he plastered a Conservative Party logo on one of those oversized novelty cheques.
But really, Keddy is just a sympton of a larger problem. After all, since the summer Tory MPs have handed out enough oversized cheques to wallpaper the Great Wall of China.
And that's bad for democracy.
I explain why in this column which appears in today's National Post.
