But David McGuinty, MP for Ottawa South, has another idea. Hey, how about Justice John Gomery, the guy who investigated the Liberal sponsorship scandal, as the director of Harper's new squeaky-clean commission? As McGuinty said in a news release yesterday:
“If the Prime Minister is serious about reforming the appointments process - something I’ve supported from day one - he will nominate someone with the multipartisan credibility to get the job done."
And if Harper doesn't like that idea, McGuinty said, he could also ask the Commons operation committee to come up with a new short list of candidates.
The ball, or the marbles, are back in Harper's court.
