On credible threats

Just in case there's any doubt, the Harper Cons have proven again that while they do everything they can duck responsibility as long as possible, they're also not above caving in the face of a threat worth taking seriously:
Privy Council officials have ended months of stonewalling and handed over documents requested by the federal information watchdog.

Yesterday's disclosure of files came only after Information Commissioner Robert Marleau threatened to have his staff enter the Privy Council offices and seize the paperwork themselves.

Privy Council staff delivered some documents yesterday, the deadline set by Marleau, and promised to deliver the rest soon.
In other news, the Libs continue to have achieved exactly zero of substance in the course of rolling over on 79 confidence votes. Which might say something about how seriously they ought to be taken.
