One of the crime scenes

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about the answers.

Raid information demands questions - and answers

For Example:
For example, why are the only individuals charged with crimes Indo-Canadian, while all the individuals who allegedly gave bribes and accepted confidential government information are Caucasian and not charged?

and:
Why are provincial lobbyists Erik Bornman and Brian Kieran from Pilothouse Public Affairs now crown witnesses in the trial? Why were neither Bornman nor Kieran charged when police documents allege they paid bribes to Basi and Virk?

The Criminal Code of Canada is clear: it is an offence to offer a bribe, it is an offence to pay a bribe, and it is an offence to receive a bribe.

If Bornman and Kierans are shown to have paid bribes -- and have evaded these criminal code penalties -- this must mean that the two men have plea bargained for their freedom.

Is this bribery by legal means? It must be a bitter pill for Basi and Virk to swallow.
