Charge Former PM Harper and Harper’s PMO over Duffy Scandal

Dear Sir,

Justice Charles H. Vaillancourt verdict today on the Duffy trial is loud and clear:  Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Nigel Wright and Mr. Harper’s PMO are the real guilty ones. I refer to the following sections from the official verdict[1]:

[1090] The only ones having an elevated corrupt purpose here were the conspiring members of the — 265 — PMO and their Senate leadership collaborators who acted out, and coerced onto Senator Duffy, a political damage control “scenario” to protect the Prime Minister and his government from political scandal.

[1110] The PMO were also very active working behind the scenes to get all their ducks in a row. They attempted to get the Conservative Party of Canada to provide the funds for the repayment. When that failed, Nigel Wright stepped up and provided the funding out of his own pocket. He explained that the $90,000.00 payment did not impact his bottom line. It seemed that this sum was a mere bagatelle. Mr. Wright certainly did not view his financial contribution and payment as untoward behaviour. He took the position that he had made an agreement with Senator Duffy and he was determined to see that his political solution to the “Duffy Problem” came to pass. I think it is fair to say that the only expectation on the part of Mr. Wright was that a nasty political thorn would be removed from the body politic.

[1237] I do not find that Senator Duffy was trying to thwart or avoid cooperating with the third party auditors. I do find that Senator Duffy was more than willing to meet with Deloitte and explain his position. I find that the PMO did not want this to happen and they endeavoured to prevent such contact.

[1239] Mr. Neubauer stated that Senator Duffy’s actions were driven by deceit, manipulations and carried out in a clandestine manner representing a serious and marked standard expected of a person in Senator Duffy’s position of trust. I find that if one were to substitute the PMO, Nigel Wright and others for Senator Duffy in the aforementioned sentence that you would have a more accurate statement.

The motto of your force is “Defending the Law”. I implore you to defend the law by charging the Mr. Harper, Mr. Wright and the rest of Mr. Harper’s PMO for bribing Mr. Duffy and thwarting and independent audit as means of covering up the PMO’s deceit, manipulation and clandestine operations.

Yours faithfully,

Rohana Rezel

CC: Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister
