During one of testier exchanges during the Morneau Affair — capitalized here to designate an official scandal — the NDP’s ethics and deputy finance critic, Nathan Cullen, accused Justin Trudeau of throwing the ethics commissioner under the bus.

He said the prime minister was blaming any lack of transparency regarding Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s many assets on advice he received from Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson.
