Useless 'ethics' commissioner on his way out.

Shapiro pretty mush sealed his fate by announcing that he would investigate Emmerson after he didn't investigate Stronach, especially as his position had to be tenuous already considering some of his findings (or more specifically, lack of) during the last Parliament.

Peter Julian, the B.C. New Democrat who asked the commissioner to look into the matter, said he was saddened by the response from the PMO.

"I certainly hope that he'll reconsider his position, that the reaction on the weekend was just a very strong reaction based on partisan motives," Julian told CTV's Canada AM on Monday.

Weren't the NDP highly critical of Shapiro during the last sitting of the house and did Ed Broadbent not say that Shapiro should be fired? Who's the self-serving one here?
