This is good, maybe now people who where once too scared to report corruption arround them will now come forward.

Wow, that sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

Perhaps we should have something like that here.

Don't count on legislation like this in America. Too many special interests...

The Liberals are on damage control. There is an election coming up and they need to appear that they are doing something about this $100,000,000. I hope it works, but if this wasn't an election year it probably would have been swept under the carpet.

Martin was not elected PM. He took over after the LIb. party FINALLY got rid of Chretien.

intrepid - what are the chances of this passing both houses or whateve Canadians have, and becoming a law?

The Senate in Canada is more of a figurehead than a political entity. Once it passes parliment, it's pretty much a done deal. It goes to the senate as "a sober second thought" but that's really just a waste of time.

Sounds like another Gun Registry. For those that aren't familiar with that, it was set up to register firearms. It was supposed to cost a few million. It's now over a billion. What a joke.
