All of those proposals apparently contradicted the Conservative party line.
Wright's memo shows that the Prime Minister’s Office has strict control over what happens in the House of Commons, and rips in to LeBreton for not exercising the same control over the Tories in the Senate.
“What we have discovered is that the lines of communication and levers that are available to us on the House side, simply are not in place on the Senate side,” Wright says. “It was quickly apparent that Senator LeBreton's office had little influence over what other Senators did and said, and limited reach into the Senate caucus generally.”
“Consistently, Senator LeBreton does not embrace the work of your office to bring communication and direction with the Senate closer to the model that we have with the House Leader and Chief Government Whip.”
