The prime minister of Canada likes to hold everyone to account but himself. It's a dictator thing.

Stephen Harper says he won't be called to testify at Senator Mike Duffy's criminal trial. Usually lawyers get to decide that, not prospective witnesses. Still, he's probably right.

Harper also says the reason he won't be called is that he doesn't know anything about the alleged criminal matters now before the court. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The prime minister effectively created and then destroyed Duffy as a politician. He appointed him to the Senate, then ran him out of the Red Chamber on a rail — but not before turning him into a human cash register for the party, as a cursory glance through Duffy's personal diaries will confirm.
