Proof Of Duffy-Wright Cheque Won't Spare PMO From RCMP Probe

CP Files

The opposition has spent weeks pressing the federal government to produce a copy of the $90,000 cheque from former PMO chief of staff Nigel Wright to disgraced Senator Mike Duffy, but former RCMP national director Garry Clement says that it's now the Mounties' job to figure out where the money came from.


Mr. Clement said he expects that investigators will focus on where the transferred funds originated in the ongoing criminal investigation into the transaction between Prime Minister Stephen Harper's (Calgary Southwest, Alta.) former chief of staff Nigel Wright and Senator Mike Duffy.
