Several senior Tory sources told The Canadian Press that they are upset with how the Prime Minister\’s Office is managing the controversy over the party\’s arrangements to pay Sen. Mike Duffy\’s contested expenses and legal bills.Duffy has largely managed to dictate how the story has emerged, while the Conservatives frantically try to catch up, struggling to get out in front of developments.\”I think over the next week or two, additional details will be coming out — hopefully — because that\’s the message I\’m getting from Canadians,\” said MP Mark Warawa.\”They want to know the full details, full disclosure, what was the cheque for and is there anybody else that\’s involved with this.\”Go-to ministers such as John Baird, James Moore, Peter MacKay, Jason Kenney and Pierre Poilievre have pointedly stayed away from the Senate fray during question period, leaving Harper and parliamentary secretary Paul Calandra to fend off the opposition.
