More allegations and a voice of support

Ruby Dhalla's bad week continues

What Bob Rae calls a “feeding frenzy” continues to be well fed. The third worker to come forward with allegations against Ruby Dhalla details exactly what she says she did for, and how she was treated by, the Dhalla family. “I had to polish their shoes … for Miss Ruby and her brother,” Lyle Alvarez says in perhaps the week’s most devastating quote. “She has a lot of shoes, downstairs and upstairs.” Fellow Liberal MP Judy Sgro, who was exonerated after her own brush with controversy a few years ago, says she tried to brace Dhalla for the frenzy, but that she is, not surprisingly, “devastated.”
