Schadenfreud!! ...Pardon my French.

Y'know, after all the kvetching and whining and harrumphing and moralistic posing the PQ in particular and Quebec separatists in general did about the sponsorship scandal, does this news from this morning's Globe and Mail ever go down like a cold beer on a hot summer day...

PQ knowingly took illegal donations, judge says
Groupaction skirted law by funnelling political contributions through employees

MONTREAL -- The Parti Québécois was on the defensive yesterday over embarrassing disclosures that it knowingly accepted $96,400 in illegal donations from Groupaction, the ad firm at the centre of the federal sponsorship scandal.

...
The report says senior PQ officials were aware of Mr. Brault's subterfuge but accepted the "disguised contributions," which were made when the party was in power.
...

"The party knew the situation and closed its eyes," says the report by retired Superior Court judge Jean Moisan, who called 66 witnesses, including Premier Jean Charest.

...Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Burp. :)

While I admit to knowing little about intra-Canadian politics, I am glad for you country that these radical seperatists are being exposed. Kinda reminds me of the Michael-Moore Party seperatists that consistently threaten to depart to Canada...

All you have to do is renounce the Declaration of Independence and say you're sorry for the Revolution and you're in. :)
