The hypocrisy of the Dippers seems to know no bounds. Hard on the heals of stories from Ottawa about questionable practices of Thomas Mulcair’s New Democrats, we see a disturbing report on the Sun News Network’s website about Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath’s practice of charging taxpayers for her snacks and even a 25-cent Oshawa parking tab.
Bear in mind this is the same Andrea Horwath who has made CEOs and consultants working for public agencies targets for her barbs following reports that they charged taxpayers for their snacks such as tea or coffee.
All indications are, at least as reported widely in the news media, that the federal New Democrats have engaged in a scheme to use taxpayer money to help fund their party operations in Quebec and Saskatchewan.
The normally so sanctimonious Dippers have allegedly set up a satellite office in Montreal that violates parliamentary spending rules. The office housed both party workers and government-paid workers who are supposed to work exclusively on non-partisan constituency work. The Montreal office was also, allegedly, signed as an NDP office with its party logo.
NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, apparently, got all huffy when pressed by reporters. He insisted his party had done nothing wrong, and that duties were separated to ensure parliamentary staff only does parliamentary work and political staff does only political work.

Given recent statements by the federal New Democrats’ leader, Thomas Mulcair, one might see a Canada led by this man as a grim, gray place in which we all think alike, and in which those with opposing/differing views are shunned and shut-out of public funding.
