Harper to turn Senate reforms into wedge issue

‘The strategy from what I can see is to let the thing fester,’ says a Tory source.

Say what? CTV reported last week that Conservative Senators David Tkachuk, left, and Carolyn Stewart Olsen, centre left, told Senator Mike Duffy, centre right, that if he accepted former PMO chief of staff Nigel Wright’s, right, cheque to repay his expenses, the Internal Economy Committee’s report on his audit would be less critical. Both Sen. Tkachuk and Sen. Stewart Olsen have denied the allegations and have called them false.Photographs by Jake Wright, The Hill Times
