Ed Morrissey & Responsible Reporting

#1.Adscam or Sponsorgate

Adscam is a scandal involving the Federal Government Sponsorship Programs in the province of Quebec in Canada, and the Liberal Party.

This program was initiated in order to raise awareness of the Government of Canada’s contributions to Quebec industries and other activities. In the same vein, this program would counter the separatist activities of the Parti Québécois.

In 2005, a Canadian judge issued a gag order and banned Canadian media from the hearings of the Gomery Commission.

A source in the Canadian legal media, publicly unknown yet circumvented the gag order, feeding the details of the Gomery hearings to Morrissey, who in turn published them on the blog.
