Preview Clip

Mike Duffy, the television personality-turned-senator whose disputed expense claims have rocked the Conservative government to its foundations, has arrived at the Ottawa courthouse for the first day of his long-awaited trial. Duffy didn't speak to the throng of reporters and camera crews that surrounded him as he walked into the courthouse. But he clearly wanted to - at one point, stopping and telling his lawyer, Donald Bayne, to let the cameras set up. But Bayne would have none of it. (The trial, currently scheduled to last more than 40 days, will give Duffy a chance to clear his name as he faces allegations of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Ever since questions about his expense claims surfaced two years ago, Duffy has denied any wrongdoing.)
