Privately, Tories criticize Grewal

From MacLeans, there are reports that the Conservative caucus is highly displeased with Grewal:
While agreeing the Liberals have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, many other Conservatives reacted with public ambivalence and private vitriol to their colleague's ruse.

Sources said there's deep distrust of Grewal in caucus and his future in the party was limited even before this incident.

He was taken to task at caucus Wednesday and told his actions were dishonest, wrong and brought disrepute to all politicians.

If indeed this was a sting operation, as Grewal maintains, he was told Harper should have been informed from the outset and the negotiations carried on far longer than necessary to obtain incriminating evidence.

There is also a sentiment among some Conservatives that information remains to come out and - if it turns out Grewal lied to Harper about his involvement with the Liberals - he should be turfed from the party.

"He was taken to task at caucus Wednesday and told his actions were dishonest, wrong and brought disrepute to all politicians."

Oh boo hoo. I guess Grewal should imitate the paragons of virtue that are Liberal politicians.

Welcome, Peter. I think he would do well to imitate anyone at this point--Liberal, Tory, NDP, or Bloc. (What else does he tape? Caucus meetings? meetings with his constituents? with his leadership?)
