Conservative appointees have nothing to hide

If the Conservatives don't like your MP, they'll appoint their own.

From the Harper Index:

Ethical issues haunt Conservatives after campaigning on accountability

On August 21, Conservative Dick Harris, MP for Cariboo- Prince George, issued a news release naming Houston (BC) Mayor and Conservative candidate Sharon Smith as "the person residents of neighbouring riding Skeena-Bulkley Valley should contact with concerns or issues with the federal government." What makes this news is that the federal seat of Skeena-Bulkley Valley is held by New Democrat Nathan Cullen. Smith attracted national and international attention four years ago after a photo of her, sitting naked in the Mayor's chair and wearing the chain of office, was circulated on the Internet. (Bold typeface mine.)
Maybe it's an attempt to show that Conservative appointees have nothing to hide.
