The RCMP have announced they'll pursue no charges in the Cadman Affair. What a surprise!
Chuck, of course, is long gone, lost to cancer in 2005. Before he died he told his wife, daughter and son-in-law about an apparent bribe offered by some Conservative fixers to get him to vote to defeat the Liberal government of Paul Martin.
Unfortunately this man of such great integrity didn't get into details of who, what, when and where - the information the cops would need to build any case warranting prosecution.
With Cadman dead and the possibility of the others voluntarily incriminating themselves pretty slim, there's really nothing for the cops to go on but that doesn't mean they shouldn't have tasered a few highly placed Conservatives just to avoid the appearance of favouritism.
So, what does the RCMP announcement tell us about the Cadman affair? Precisely nothing.
