Throw one more on the barbie: "Tory Senator calls in ethics officer to examine stimulus contract." Leo Housakos, making a date with the ethics commissioner.

Favourite item in the report:
Ethics officers on Parliament Hill promise to be tied up for some time. The parliamentary ethics commissioner also announced Tuesday she is investigating complaints over the signing of ceremonial federal stimulus cheques by Conservative politicians.
The "big cheque" extravaganza is now a formal ethics investigation.

Who knew that the stimulus would include make work for government ethics employees?
