Soudas has a problem, it's becoming quite clear:
In February 2008, Liberal MP Raymonde Folco asked Soudas during a committee hearing in Ottawa whether he'd intervened.That email is a little different from a "no," isn't it? Why then did he tell a parliamentary committee, while under oath, a point blank "no?" This is a Prime Minister's spokesman. His word matters. That his boss thinks it doesn't, that matters too. What a web they weave.
"Did you meet with them (board members) to discuss this appointment?" Folco asked.
"No," Soudas replied.
In a follow-up email on Wednesday, Soudas said the issue of the next CEO "was discussed very briefly" during a meeting with the board on its priorities.
What might the voters think? Where might this impact Conservatives?
Nik Nanos, the Globe and Mail/CTV pollster, picked up some concern about the Tories in Quebec during his polling Tuesday night – part of that disquiet, he believes, could be a result of the Soudas story.Montreal political interference allegations, ethics letters on Bruce Carson...great news day for the Conservatives.
