The Conservative government is using public money to pay a "shadow MP" in a partisan campaign targeting the coveted Montreal riding of Irwin Cotler, the Liberal MP fears.

For weeks, Cotler has been decrying a phone-call blitz organized by Conservatives, during which constituents of his Montreal riding were told he was about to resign.

Now he's denouncing the Tories' hiring -- as an employee of the Government of Canada -- the man he defeated as a candidate in the last election.
