Brodie, Wilson Cleared

Published: Wednesday, 05/28/2008 12:00 am EDT

Investigators probing leaks that revealed Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama was not serious about renegotiating the NAFTA found "no evidence" that Prime Minister Stephen Harper's chief of staff, Ian Brodie , or Canadian Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Wilson had released any classified information, according to a Privy Council Office report released on Friday. Investigators were unable to find the source of the leak, even though Mr. Brodie and Mr. Wilson acknowledged speaking to reporters. They were also unable to pinpoint how a diplomatic note from the Canadian consulate in Chicago was leaked to the media. Despite investigation results in his favour, Mr. Brodie has announced he will leave the PMO in July.
