cabinet minister doctoring documents is democratic according to PM

The case of a Conservative minister who doctored a signed document and misled the House of Commons is a test of Canada’s democracy, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff says.

But according to PM Stephen Harper it is just fine for a cabinet minister to a) crudely change a document and b) lie about changing it because the government has to make decisions. How does decision making require lying and forgery? That’s not what I teach my kids.
