Globe & Mail - RCMP to probe possible Goodale trusts ruling leak

Well it looks like the persistence by the NDP & Conservatives have finally got the attention of the RCMP in the most recent post in the Globe and Mail.

The Globe goes on to say "RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli says in a letter to NDP MP Judy Wasylycia-Leis that the force has reviewed her complaint about a possible security breach or illegal transfer of information about the pending changes to government tax policy towards income trusts." It further states "Criminal investigations do not always lead to charges."

The RCMP wrote her back that they will now commence a criminal investigation that a key tax change for income trusts was leaked.

Langley Free Press predicts that unfortunately there will be no vindication or announcement of criminals charges, if any, until long after the election is held. What impact will this have with the electorate? Obviously, the opposition parties will be bleeting this horn loud and long until January 23rd. The nightly tracking polls by CPAC-SES posted on this blog by Langley Free Press should reflect if this will have any significant impact especially in seat rich Ontario. Obviously the Liberals response will be critical and is the last thing the Liberals needed weeks before the election. Negative ads will now be flying fast and furiously.
