May 18 2005, CBC Reports: Grewal Claims He Was Offered Plum Posting

Filed under: Uncategorized — bucketsdata @ 9:03 pm

Late in the day, Conservative MP Gurmant Grewal claims that the Liberals promised plum postings for him and his wife, Nina, also a Conservative MP, if he would abstain from voting against the government in the budget vote, now less than 24 hours away. Grewal says he secretly made audio recordings of the offers following meetings with Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh and Martin’s chief of staff, Tim Murphy. Grewal releases an eight-minute audio segment of those recordings.

Dosanjh and Murphy both deny that any offers were made. Dosanjh says it was Grewal who approached the government seeking senior appointments for himself and his wife. Dosanjh also says Grewal came back several times when the Liberals rejected his initial demands.
