Mr. Travers has for some time been part of the Liberal inner-santum, entrusted with secrets that those outside the party's powerful elite, like Stephane Dion, are completely unaware of. If James thought only the Conservatives would be punished, he would be joining the Liberal hue and cry for complete disclosure and investigation. For Travers to come out against a wide open inquiry indicates that there must be several Schreiber skeletons hidden in the Liberal closet.
The question this brings to mind is: what does James Travers know, and when did he know it?
So in the interest of full disclosure, I will add my voice to Stephane Dion's and call for a full and far ranging public inquiry into the Schreiber Affair.
It seems quite obvious that James Travers has to be brought before the public inquiry and compelled to tell Canadians what he knows. It is likely that he has shared/schemed with other denizens of the Toronto Star news room, so they should be brought forth for questioning too. Certainly with these two entities in cahoots, someone at Torstar corporate must have known what was going on. They will have to testify. Who else writes for the Star that might know something about Liberal/Schreiber shenanigans? One time Paul Martin advisor Scooter Reid? Haul him in as well. Now that Scooter is in the mix, we'll have to haul his old boss before the inquiry too; we know Paul Martin thinks highly of public inquiries so he should be happy to appear. But, if Paul Martin appears, his one time boss will have to testify as well. I'm sure the Chretien prime-ministerial closet could use a good airing out.
So for once, I agree with Stephane Dion. The truth must come out! Why have an inquiry when you can have an inquisition?
Of course, this is all malarkey. But it demonstrates the partisanship evident in what Stephane Dion is calling for, and how ridiculous it all is.
Rather than screaming from the rafters for an inquisition, Stephane Dion should be quiet and sit down. At least we know he has experience doing that.
