Rahim Jaffer was unsuccessful in getting any contracts as a former Conservative. If Rahim Jaffer had Liberal ties would he have been able to secure a deal for twenty years at a sixty per cent premium to the existing hydro rates?
In Ontario both the NDP and PC are asking questions about the relationship of Mike Crawley and the Federal and Provincial Liberals.
Is the CBC, Toronto media selective in investigating a potential conflict or relationship when it points to the Liberal Party in Ontario?
Who is this Mike Crawley? Stephen Taylor was on a tv panel with him on August 15, 2008.
NDP Howard Hampton: He is a Liberal hack and he’s going to get a $475-million contract, guaranteed at 8 cents a kilowatt hour. That’s why the hydro bill is going to go through the roof.
Mr Runciman: The reality is that we are talking about the principal of this company, who is a senior Liberal operative, one who is highly involved in both the provincial and federal Liberal parties. He has just been handed a contract worth close to half a billion dollars for a 0.3% contribution to power output. Can the minister guarantee that neither Mike Crawley nor AIM PowerGen had any undue influence over this process? Can you guarantee that?

Does Rahim Jaffer believe if he was a Liberal he would have had more success in getting contracts?
