putting 'political junkies' in gov't agencies when vacancies come up is one thing. disposing of people before the end of their term when they have done nothing but enforce the regulations that it is their job to enforce is quite another.
also, it should be noted that von finkenstein was appointed to his position in january 2007 by the harper government. it's not like he is a liberal crony.
I dont need to name a specific situation for you. I can name about 50 where in the last month where they have completely ignored process and regulation and awarded spectrum to Bell/Telus only to see them shelve that spectrum so competition can't use it a,llowing them to continue to charge Canadians whatever they damn well please while not allowing for a fair market.
