Peladeau says Conservative operative deliberately tricked Sun Media

Sun Media president and CEO Pierre Karl Peladeau (pictured) wrote an extraordinary editorial in Wednesday’s Sun accusing a Conservative official of having funneled a photo purported to be of Michael Ignatieff to hurt the Liberal leader and to damage his fledgling conservative broadcast network.
The photo showed a group of U.S. soldiers in uniform, holding assault rifles and was said to have been taken in Iraq (see it above). One of the soldiers bears an uncanny resemblance to the Liberal leader.
According to Peladeau's editorial, the photo was given to Sun TV by Patrick Muttart, key architect behind the party’s election victories in 2006 and 2008 who worked on contract with the 2011 campaign from his Chicago home. A Tory spokesman said he would have “no further role” in the Conservative campaign.
