Grewal cleared in airport package affair

From the CBC of a few hours ago:
Gurmant Grewal has been cleared of wrongdoing in two investigations launched after the Conservative member of Parliament tried to get Ottawa-bound passengers at Vancouver's airport to carry a package for him.

Now the RCMP say the Newton-North Delta MP is off the hook because he had cleared security with the package before he started approaching people to do the errand for him.

Transport Canada also says Grewal broke no security rules.

Neither Grewal nor the Conservatives have said what was in the package and why the MP felt it was so important that it reach Ottawa.
