Peter MacKay, Thyssen AG, and Harper's Magazine

So let me see if I've got this right. Elmer MacKay was Brian Mulroney's bagman, who had dealings with KarlHeinz Schreiber, who paid Brian Mulroney cash in envelopes for weird unspecified services that may or may not have to do with promoting an armoured car plant at Bear Head, Nova Scotia. Meanwhile, Peter MacKay, Elmer's son, a lawyer, "happened" to get a summer job in Germany working for Thyssen AG. Now Peter, our Minister of National Defence, is our representative in NATO, which might be a step up on Maxime Bernier, or not.

You can't make this stuff up.
