    I think we need to bring in a international observer group in the next election, to oversee Elections Canada.I no longer trust them.

    Peter, just put your gas away and go away. You got your 15 minutes of fame and shagged it up.

    Thank you for your informative article. There is obviously much more to come in this story. Keep up the good work!

    I'd be very surprised if Penashue was the only MP who accepted illegal donations, if he even knew these donations were coming in from Corporations. You think all donors to Trudeau's campaign are private individuals? Dream on. liberals in Quebec just know how to cover it up more (AdScam).

      Wjhata sorry comment,if Mr. Penashue was not able to know that corporate donations are illegal then that is a proper reason that he should not be sitting in the House of Commons because he just does not have the knowledge.

    I must say that reading information as provided by the media; I am appalled that we would even consider electing someone like this and then to add insult to place him in the Federal cabinet. First as a leader in a cabinet; or anywhere for that matter; we are generally looking for a person that accepts responsibility for all that is done by himself or those that work for him. Clearly here we see a person that is not a leader by any stretch of the imagination. Also a leader would select people to work for him that has at least a rudimentary knowledge of the rules that they must follow. Not in this case! But I think this an excuse for cheating; try it and if we get caught we can always say we were ignorant of the rules! Reminds one of the legal saying; ignorance of the law is not an excuse for doing the illegal act! Doesn't this remind you yet again of the "Bev Oda" glass of orange juice or the "Mike Duffy" not knowing where he lives!

    This riding should not have a by-election until Elections Canada is finished with its investigation. If Penashue is found guilty and the evidence is mounting he would not even be allowed to run. I listened to Bowers explanation and there is about 48,000$ worth of illegal contributions when all added up.l

    Good grief. The stuff reporters will write about.

    These twists and turns are obviously intended to bypass the rules. A very well known Conservative trick. These activities should be enough for Election Canada to act. But no Look and Look and Look and Look and do nothing.

    Peter penashue must of had something to do with Muskratfalls for sure. After he sold it back to the province via the New Dawn Agreement. How else on earth could something as basic as building a dam in up in labrador and selling the power to make money become so shady, cloudy and ending up sending us a Bill of 10+ biliion. Our own premier and tory mha's all support him for all us now. Thats not ok! unless we are all tories now! We should all be better than this, even if duderdale and harper this you are wrong.

    I guess Peter the cheater just can't follow rules.. According to Harper and the gang Penashue invented the Internet, save the seal hunt, got the Trans lab highway paved (Those who drive thru Labrador wonder where this paved highway is located), oh yes got water running through the lower churchill area. What a fake this former MP was. Couldn't speak for himself; had to get Harper's cronies strand up and say a couple of written words. Where was the former MP when we wanted the search and rescue centre saved.. Penashue is running now to try and get ahead of what other stuff that may be illegal coming down the pipe from Elections Canada.. Harper thinks we are all fools in Labrador and NL.
