Just thought I’d update all three of my loyal readers on the legal silliness I’ve been sucked into. Sunday evening, I sent a polite email to Mr. Chand explaining that I wasn’t interested in being involved in any legal disputes related to the explosion and declined his request for an interview. This morning, he called my office twice. This is clearly not a work-related issue so I declined to answer, letting the voicemail catch it, with the intent of returning his call this evening from home. Except that he didn’t leave any messages – so I don’t know what he wanted. Saves me the long-distance charges to Ottawa. By the way, did I mention that this guy called me on a Sunday afternoon? When will telemarketers and lawyers figure out that annoying the person on the other end of the phone is not a way to foster cooperation?
Mr. Chand’s persistance, while annoying, leads to other questions… Specifically, the only thing his client could be concerned about was my reporting of the rumour that “the owner of the house that blew up had a gas fireplace installed on the weekend”… Apparently this is a fairly well-known, but unconfirmed, rumour on the Hill. So why all the trouble to track me down over it? Methinks he doth protest too much.
Stay tuned.Pin It
