Former Harper Advisor Charged with Fraud, Again

Posted on July 27, 2012

KELLIGREWS, NL— Liberal Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics critic Scott Andrews made the following statement today on the RCMP charges against former senior advisor to Stephen Harper, Bruce Carson:

“Bruce Carson was a convicted fraudster before being made Stephen Harper’s senior advisor, so the charges brought against him are not surprising, nor are the allegations that Mr. Carson used his position to peddle his own business interests.

Despite being aware of his fraud conviction, Mr. Harper hired Mr. Carson twice to work in the PMO and gave tens of millions of dollars in grants to two of his projects.

Mr. Harper seems to have a penchant for surrounding himself with shady characters, and these charges only add to a growing list of alleged misconduct, including, but certainly not limited to, Minister Paradis, Minister Penashue and parliamentary secretary Dean Del Mastro.

If we are the company we keep, I would strongly suggest Mr. Harper re-evaluate who he chooses for his inner circle.”
