Stephen Harper faced another grilling on the campaign trail today about where the buck stops inside the Prime Minister's Office. Harper has been facing a steady parade of questions this week about PMO staffers who knew about the plan to pay Senator Mike Duffy's expenses. (The former lawyer for the PMO, Benjamin Perrin, has testified at Duffy's trial that Harper's current chief of staff, Ray Novak, was aware of his predecessor Nigel Wright's plan in 2013 to give Duffy 90-thousand dollars of his own money. Harper says Perrin has admitted that he never told him about the plan.)
