Ralph Goodale Income Trust Leak

Props to the CBC's Peter Mansbridge for conducting a hard hitting interview with Finance Minister Ralph Goodale tonight. In it, I think Goodale summed up everything that is wrong with the current party's contempt for Canadians who demand bona fide accountability and transparency:

I've examined my own conduct in this matter and I'm confident that conduct is consistent with 30 years of integrity and trust in public life.

Isn't it reassuring to know that 'acountability' to a Liberal means "self examination"? It is the customary fallacy of nemo iudex in causa sua, or that no one can be a judge in his own case.
