Gomery Inquiry – all for nothing?

According to John Gomery, the new government hasn’t acted on any of the recommendations given in his report. A CBC news article also tells of how the only thing to come of the inquiry is the federal accountabilities act, and this was legislation prepared before his report was even released.

It’s kind of funny that the Sponsorship Scandal was the defining issue for the 2006 election, yet the new government hasn’t done anything with the recommendations. Granted, the Conservatives don’t seem to be as likely as the Liberals to actually create such a scandal. If a political party is going to campaign and win an election because of an issue, you’d think they would at least follow up with some type of action. However, it is obvious that the Conservatives are equally capable of the unethical practises that they accused the Liberals of, such as patronage and bullying.
