Revelations about the federal Health Minister’s use of extremely expensive limousines brought to mind that infamous case of Liberal Minister David Dingwall about a decade ago. Remember his indignant response to a Commons Committee when questioned on his spending : “I’m entitled to my entitlements”; seems that’s always been the case with some politicians.

Let’s get something out of the way right at the get go. Christy Clark’s 15% tax on foreigners buying real estate in BC is not going to (and never was intended to) make the prices of homes more affordable to ordinary BC families. There are four reasons for this.

So, now the issue is whether Minister Philpott’s office lied to Parliament. Of course her defence will be that as stated, she did not use a limousine as such, she used a luxury Lexus. In a court of law [complete with a mess of lawyers] she and her department would be found innocent of all charges.

I have to give credit to Chico who is a major contributor to WCP, he has a memory like crazy glue, everything sticks to his brain. Way back in time, but still Liberal time, another Minister by the name of Dingwall fought to protect his right to entitlements.
