Someone screwed up.
This missing audio should be released to the public immediately. The longer they wait, the more the Liberals can spin this into a story of a Conservative cover up.
We don't want the public to focus on the few minutes of lost audio in the worst technical blunder I can't think of to happen in the world of politics. We want the public to be focusing on this:
"[Conservative Leader Stephen Harper] will have to deal with [Tory MP Gurmant Grewal, who made the tapes], but we have to deal with our own... The use of the words 'Senate' and 'foreign posting,' even if no offer was made, is totally odious. There are several MPs who are remaining silent but who think Murphy and Dosanjh have crossed the threshold of acceptable political discourse."
Who said this? Sarnia Liberal MP Roger Gallaway. A Liberal MP calling on the health minister and Paul Martin's right hand man to resign?... The stench is so bad even Liberals can't take anymore.
