Quote
Finance Minister Graham Steele didn't mince words Tuesday on his opinion of the right-leaning Fraser Institute and its reports.

"Even when I could say, yes, this is great, this is validation of what we're saying, it's, it's crap," he said. "I'm sorry, are ministers not supposed to say that?"...

I guess the Chronicle Herald doesn't archive its stuff online or something; I think other articles have been gone after a while. I don't know where to find the article now, but here is Steele's website, which looks interesting.

Hat tip David Climenhaga, who is writing about "Ethical" Oil and other "charities" that are vulnerable to serious scrutiny in response to Conservative attacks on some charities:
