Mother’s ad­vice long ago ap­plies to Morneau now

Times Colonist - - Comment -

All the back and forth over fed­eral Fi­nance Min­is­ter Bill Morneau’s in­vest­ments and the ethics com­mis­sioner’s ap­par­ent ad­vice re­minds me of a con­ver­sa­tion with my mother many, many years ago.

I had once again been in trouble for some bad act or other at school.

“But there’s no rule against it,” I in­sisted. Her re­sponse stuck: “That may be, son, but you knew it was wrong.”
