Stephen Harper’s Private Jet Travelling Companions: National Security Secret

There was a time when you could find out who travelled with the Prime Minister on government owned jets – but that was before Stephen Harper faced massive embarrassment while trying to explain how long-time friend Mark Kihn was able to get taxpayer-paid flights back and forth from Calgary on the government`s private jets.

In 2010, a written question tabled in the House of Commons about government owned jets got this result, a passenger manifest so you could see who the PM had in his entourage.

However, a written question tabled this spring with identical wording gets you this. A blanked-out list.

What’s the Prime Minister’s excuse for this new secrecy? Why is he hiding the identity of the passengers on his flights?

Canadians deserve better.
