Gurmant Grewal Cleared Again
I've been out of town on Her Canadian Majesty's business for a number of days. I get back to see this from Yahoo News:
Well, well, well. My last post noted that the only real expert (as opposed to the Globe & Mail's front page news mail order "expert") to review the originals of the infamous "doctored" tapes said they weren't. The originals were clean and undoctored. Not fiddled with. Pristine. Accurate. Real. Authentic.

OTTAWA (CP) - The RCMP and federal transport regulators have cleared Conservative MP Gurmant Grewal of any wrongdoing in an incident at Vancouver International Airport.
Grewal tried on June 4 to get other passengers in a waiting area of the airport to carry a package for him to Ottawa.
But the RCMP say there was nothing criminal about the Newton-North Delta MP's actions. RCMP Cpl. Dave Williams says the Mounties never launched
a full-scale investigation. That's because Grewal had already cleared airport
security before his actions drew attention.
"It was a safety concern for the airline, but once everybody goes through security - and he was on the secure side - you can exchange packages as long as everybody knows what's in the package.
"If we found out that it had come in from a non-secure method, we may have been involved," Williams said in an interview from Richmond, B.C. "But we had no evidence to even suggest that."
Transport Canada has also cleared Grewal.
In a letter to the MP dated June 13, the agency's manager of security operations says Grewal did not contravene the Aeronautics Act.
Next to no main line media coverage.
Now this latest story above clears Mr. Grewal from accusations of wrongdoing at the airport. I await the rush of apologies from his accusers and front page treatment of his exoneration in the media. Come on now. Don't be shy. Step up and admit you were wrong. Hello, I can't hear you?
