I also think it is possible that Ford didn't know he had gone and when he found out, hoped it would remain a secret.

And itís possible he didnít tell the Premierís office...  Plenty of possibilities...  all of them point to this guy being a complete ass...  and most others point to Ford being an idiot. 

He did keep it quiet for a week or so.

Ya, I'm not sure Ford didn't do what many politicians would have done in that situation. The coverup often bites more than the offence.

Joe Hargrave, Cabinet Minister in Sask., has resigned.  He vacationed in USA.

This is a new cottage industry.

Finding people in power that took vacations and ruining their careers.

Can't say I'm too bothered, It's pure hypocrisy.

His advisory position is unpaid, he isn't giving up his real job.
