|The Duffy Deal: Up go the numbers|
Lawyers for Mr. Wright told the Mounties that while their client kept Mr. Harper in the dark about his personal gift to Mr. Duffy, he did tell a small circle of four, the documents show. This included three people in the Prime Minister’s Office: David van Hemmen, who was Mr. Wright’s executive assistant; Benjamin Perrin, then a PMO legal adviser, and Chris Woodcock, PMO director of issues management, whose job it is to handle hot political files.
Journalists, why not speak to Messrs. Gerstein, van Hemmen, Perrin and Woodstock? What did they know about Duffy's expenses, when did they know it, who did they talk to about it, and what did they know about any agreements?
