...Raymond Mol, who served as Mr. Cadman's co-campaign manager in 2004, said he asked Mr. Cadman specifically about possible offers shortly after he voted to keep the Liberal government in power.
After the vote, Mr. Mol says he met with Mr. Cadman when he arrived at the Vancouver Airport after his flight from Ottawa, and later went with him to his constituency office in Surrey.
"We definitely chatted about it. I have a fairly clear recollection of that time," Mr. Mol told the Citizen.
He says he first asked his friend about possible incentives offered by then-Prime Minister Paul Martin's Liberals.
"I said, "Did the Liberals offer you a spot?' And he said, 'They know better than that."
Mr. Mol then asked about Conservative offers.
"He said, 'They offered me the same support they offered me before,'" Mr. Mol recalled. "But, no, he said, 'They didn't offer me anything specific and I didn't ask for anything.'"
Later in the article, Mr. Mol gives a possible explanation for the seeming contradiction in various versions of the story.
