Walker Morrow – Let’s Pat Ourselves on the Back for a Moment

Wow – this is my first post on the Lynch Mob since I handed the reins to Scary Fundamentalist. Don’t worry – I’m not taking over the editor’s position again; you’re in safe hands. But I did think that I would take the time to gloat, just a little.

Why? Well, and a big fat h/t to Four_Horses at Free Dominion for this one, just read this story, via Brian Lilley at the Winnipeg Sun

There is a baseball team in Ottawa called the Fat Cats. The team plays in the Intercounty League, very much in the “minors” but the players have dreams of the playing in the majors.

In the elite ranks of the federal civil service, things are a little different. Here, bureaucrats like David Langtry play minor league parts in the lives of Canadians but spend major league dollars.

You’ve probably never heard of Langtry, but he is likely the most high-flying bureaucrat we’ve got.

Langtry lives in Manitoba but commutes to Ottawa. By plane. On your dime.

Small fortune

Since he was appointed as deputy chief commissioner of the Canadian Human Rights Commission in 2007 by his pal Vic Toews, Langtry has spent a small fortune flying back and forth to Ottawa, sometimes on a weekly basis. We not only pay for his flights and his ability to rack up the frequent-flyer points, we pay for his hotel and his food.

That’s right, the Canadian Human Rights Commission that is careless with your rights is also careless with your money.

Over the last few years, the CHRC has been discredited for tactics that involve posing as Nazis online to bait others into making racist statements, prosecuting only selected politically motivated complaints and attempting to censor Canada’s largest news magazine.

Langtry has billed more than $36,000 in hotel rooms for his trips to Ottawa, more than $36,000 for flights and almost $20,000 for meals. This doesn’t include his travels around the world conducting official business for the human rights commission in locales such as Trinidad and Tobago and Bangkok, Thailand.

Langtry says when he agreed to take the five-year appointment as deputy commissioner, he told the feds he wanted to stay in Winnipeg and they agreed.

Read the rest here.

Now, I think it’s great that Brian Lilley is commenting on this farce – because it really is a farce. That someone so useless to Canadian taxpayers as David Langtry should be having so many expenses covered by them is a very black mark on the Tories’ already-black record.

That being said, the Lynch Mob was talking about Langtry’s expenses months ago. And for that, I feel an immense amount of pride. Not necessarily because I think we do a better job than Brian Lilley – Brian Lilley is in a league of his own; he was the one, after all, to debunk the CHRC office-closure ‘scandal’ a few months back. The man is very good at what he does.

But the blogs, including the Lynch Mob, were right there on this issue, just as thoroughly as the mainstream media. How great is that?
