ADSCAM: Oh, Canada!

Canada's Attorney General is now determining how to go about cracking down on bloggers:

So instead of chasing down felons or prosecuting violent criminals, or perhaps investigating government corruption, the AG intends to start delivering contempt citations ... or even sillier, warning letters. For what? Writing about testimony to which their politicians have complete access and the media can watch but not report.

The source for much of the information posted recently on the Captain's Quarters blog has been spooked by the Canadian Attorney General's statements:

The source from which my material has come wants to ensure his/her own safety at the moment from exposure and legal action, which I find reasonable. Hopefully, more material will come soon.

The Free Will blog, meanwhile, does its best to patch together the testimony.

Wondering what the heck this Adscam stuff is all about, anyway?

Corruption.

Real. Actual. Corruption.

Brault reveals all. Jean Brault, former head of Groupaction Marketing, makes devastating revelations implicating the Liberal Party of Canada, Quebec division. Brault gives astounding details about what looks like a systemized scheme to funnel funds to the Liberal Party. Groupaction was repeatedly asked to give cash donations to the party or put election workers on its payroll in exchange for government contracts. All this at the request of three high-ranking Liberals: Jacques Corriveau (head of Pluridesign and personal friend of J Chretien who worked on his campaign), Alain Renaud (big-time Liberal who worked at the party’s headquarters in Montreal and Benoit Corbeil, a party official in Montreal).... There were also fictitious invoices to make sure these transactions were untraceable.

More here, here, and here.

How can they hand out citations to bloggers? That is such a strange concept to me, because Bloggers are really about dialog and free speech. Don't the Canadians have enough to do? You would think they could let the bloggers blog on and blog freely!I would think the blog itself can allow or not certain individuals in or out! WILLisms.com doesn't allow profanity! Why not allow free speech for blogs?
I really love WILLisms.com! Thanks!
