Doer's wife was pollster for Crocus

So reads the headline in today's Winnipeg Free Press.

Premier Gary Doer's wife, and the spouse of former Chairman of the Crocus Board and the Manitoba Federation of Labour(MFL), Robert Hilliard, are co-owners of Viewpoints Research Ltd. - a polling company which received $75,000 in no-bid contracts for services provided to Crocus.

For months, the media and Opposition have been looking for a direct link to Premier Doer and the Crocus Fund, aside from the obvious ties the NDP has with MFL. It doesn't get much more direct than this, and that is why the Premier should be calling for a public inquiry so that he can explain what he knew and when.

Crocus shareholders and all taxpayers deserve to know what happened with the failed Labour Sponsored Fund.
