Good old visitor logs,
shining light on the hogs.
These are also the only times that the names of Tkachuk, then chairman of the Senate’s internal economy committee, and Gerstein, who heads the Conservative Fund of Canada, appear in the February visitor logs for the Langevin building, which is across the street from Parliament Hill. Outside of the two days in February, none of the three men appear as visitors to the Prime Minister’s Office in the visitor logs on any other days from January to April.
A spokesman for Harper said the prime minister “did not participate in any of these meetings.” Carl Vallee said room 204, where the meetings were all held, is a conference room in the PMO. He declined to say who used that room on Feb. 11 and Feb. 12.
Gerstein has not commented publicly since being named in a RCMP court document alleging he was one of four people who knew about Wright’s plans to pay off Duffy’s expenses. Gerstein did not respond to requests for comment made Tuesday to his Ottawa office. Wright’s lawyer declined comment.
“I don’t know anything about the personal exchange of funds between Nigel Wright and Mike Duffy. I was never part of a conspiracy to that effect,” Tkachuk said Tuesday.
