Secret Document Was Intentionally Left At CTV?

It is puzzling that CTV, which have always acted like Harper’s Propaganda channel, seems to have turn against the government but waited about a week to reveal the document. Morton’s musing blog muses about possibility that it might have been left there intentionally by government staff who does not want AECL sold. I doubt Lisa Raitt underling would have any interest in whether AECL got sold or not. One plausible speculation would be that this was intentionally left by the PMO to their always reliable CTV. The document content would include details to paint AECL as an out of control entity that needs to be sold off. Canadians hearing about billion dollar wasted at AECL and behind schedule project at Bruce would perceive that there’s a big problem at AECL. But closer look would show that the 1 billion is over several years. For a big crown corporation like AECL, that is not a huge amount of money. I am curious how much money does the other crown corporation Canada Post get for 3 years? Which are mainly administrative and delivery and does not have research component in it.

Anyway that is just speculation. But Lisa Raitt not being fired and CTV helping Harper out once again make this a real possibility. There is really nothing revealing against the government other than having left the document there accidentally. Maxine Bernier having left document did not really affect them that much last time so they probably calculated it won’t be a big deal. But then again maybe CTV has turn a corner since their rating is tanking and their reputation is in tatters for being unethical and rampantly pro-Conservative.
