FM ownership sent a box of chocolates and a basket of flowers to Vennard, a then newbie commissioner for Alberta and the Northwest Territories. The occasion was not to entice her into a Chippendale whirling dervish. It was as innocent as the occasion of her birthday.
Somehow this egregious acceptance spun uncontrollably into the public sphere and has become wildly and widely circulated in the mainstream media that is ravenously hungry for victims, and financially incapable of actually covering global firestorms other than paying annual fees to Associated Press, Reuters, the New York Times, the cash-strapped Canadian Press, and Mad magazine.
The Ethics czar Mary Dawson has weighed heavily on Vennard’s veniality after it was leaked/discovered that she had taken a gift from knowing clients, even though the present was accepted by an assistant and Vennard may or may not have actually known who the tisket-tasket came from.
That was not good enough for the rectitude of Ottawa’s best, and Dawson has concluded that Vennard breached the Conflict of Interest Act in accepting a gift from RedFM, a license holder in her purview.
In a 17-page report that cost a bundle and some, Dawson writes: “Dr. Vennard’s only connection with the RedFM representatives who gave her the gifts was as stakeholders of the CRTC, and she had met them only once since her appointment two months earlier.”
Phew! So far, so good. But she continues.
“A birthday gift under such circumstances is unusual and unexpected.”
The report goes on to say that the flowers and chocolates “might reasonably be seen to have been given to influence her as the company is a stakeholder of the CRTC,” and would not qualify under the exception that permits the acceptance of gifts that are “a normal expression of courtesy or protocol or are within the customary standards that normally accompany the public office holder’s position.”
Dawson doesn’t stop here. In her written submission, Vennard estimated the value of the gifts at “about $50 to $60,” but according to the invoice turned over by RedFM, the total cost was more than twice that, at $123.90.

Up-and-coming Adam Casey will represent P.E.I. for the second year in a row and shows potential despite finishing ninth last year.
Jamie Koe of the Northwest Territories returns for a tenth trip if he can get through the qualifying round among Nova Scotia, Nunavut, and Yukon to get into the full Brier competition. Rarely a contender, he tends to upset at least one of the favourites.
Four provinces will hold their championships between Feb. 10 and 14. Mike McEwen will try to make his first Brier while competing in a field including defending Manitoba champion Reid Carruthers. Defending champions remain the favourites with Brad Jacobs in Northern Ontario, Kevin Koe in Alberta and Jim Cotter in B.C.
Saskatchewan and New Brunswick will start their provincials Wednesday and declare champions on Sunday.
