Both the Tories and the NDP have complained about the partisan Liberal background of Ms. Meilleur, who, as an officer of Parliament, would be expected to operate independently of the government and would report directly to the House of Commons or the Senate
   The revelations are likely to ramp up criticisms from the Conservatives and New Democrats that the selection of Ms. Meilleur as bilingualism watchdog is partisan. Both parties are attempting to block the appointment of the long-time Ottawa MPP, one of the eight officers of Parliament who are expected to operate independently of the government. The parties also claim they were not consulted before her nomination, as is required by law.
