It seems Mr. Schreiber has no more credibility in Germany than he had in Canada and as a result finds himself in jail for eight years. Many in Canada find it unfortunate that instead of a criminal trial there was merely a public inquiry for the former prime minister whose explanation for receiving bags of cash, either during his tenure or within weeks of leaving office, is no more credible than anything Mr. Schreiber ever said about the affair.

By the way, doesn’t it seem a long time waiting for the report of the Mulroney hearings?
