Tit for tat final offer deal no deal?

Anne "Uncool" Cools

Good Day Readers:

Some many senators sure are ballsy these days then there's Anne "Uncool" Cools. Get this. She wants the media to be "gently approached" to reveal who leaked the contents of the Auditor General's recent report. Huh?

Just how forthcoming has she and the Senate been in how it spends your hard earned taxpayer dollars? It's Board of Internal Economy behaves like a secret society. The lawyer for Mike Duffy has tried to gain access to a 2013 Senate report by Jill Anne Joseph on whether senators could prove they lived where they said they did. So what did lawyers for the Upper Chamber do? That's right yet again they invoked parliamentary privilege.

So here's the deal Anne Cools. For every Senate secret/scandal you give up the medial will reveal one of its sources. Deal no deal?

Sincerely,
Clare L. Pieuk
Cools says Senate should ask media for help in hunt

OTTAWA - An independent senator from Ontario wants the Senate to ask journalists to identify sources who leaked details about the auditor general's recent expenses probe.

Anne Cools says senators should "gently" approach reporters to explain how they knew the contents of the Senate spending report before it was publicly released.

Cools made the comments at a Senate committee looking into how details of auditor general Michael Ferguson's report were given to journalists before many senators were able to look at the document.

The Canadian Press was among the outlets that reported on details of the audit before its public release.

The Senate's rules committee is looking into who received copies of the report, how many copies were circulating, and who had access to the document before it was tabled in the Senate.

The report found some senators didn't believe they had to be publicly accountable for their spending and identified two current and seven retired senators whose spending warranted a review by the RCMP.
