Jeez. The Conservatives are desperate. They threw legal and ethical caution to he wind in this latest move to tape and distribute a private NDP caucus meeting.
I'm not a lawyer (just a know-it-all blogger), but I'm pretty sure that you can't record a conversation that you are not invited to take part in and then distribute it. And getting an email because you have the same name as someone else doesn't count as an invite. I hope someone goes to jail for this. That's a perp walk I don't want to miss.
On the substance of what was said at the meeting, Adam Radwanski made an interesting point on Goldhawk Live. I'm paraphrasing, but he said essentially that the content of the tape is not really a big deal. The NDP has been fighting to stop the Conservatives for years now, so it is not surprising that they would be in talks with opposition parties at any time about ways to stop the Harper agenda. And based on what Mulcair said, it sounds like Jack was referring to the talks that he and Duceppe have had throughout the years about the issues that they agree on.
I'm glad that Layton talks to all the parties in the HoC about how to achieve positive results on the issues Canadian care about. Maybe if Harper did the same every now and then, he wouldn't be stuck panicking like his is now.
