new in Ethics report (10): missing conversations
The Ethics Commissioner's report continues to discuss the conversation between Grewal and Murphy in Grewal’s office at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18. Shapiro concludes
The meeting ended with no commitment by either participant.This is problematic. Grewal spoke on the phone several times with each of Dosanjh and Murphy over the 17th and 18th. We know that because we have five of the calls. (You can see the scans here.) But none of those calls is mentioned here.
Mr. Dosanjh testified that subsequently, he was informed that two Conservative MPs were going to be holding a media event and making allegations that the Liberals were trying to buy their votes. As a consequence, Mr. Dosanjh contacted Mr. Grewal and was assured by him that it was neither he nor his wife making these allegations.
There were no further discussions between Mr. Grewal, Mr. Dosanjh or Mr. Murphy.
But it gets worse. Dosanjh mentioned a call that he made to Grewal. That call is not included among the released recordings. Why?
