OTTAWA -- Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan said Sunday that Conservative MP Gurmant Grewal "wouldn't take no for an answer" after he approached the Liberals about possibly helping them defeat the Tories in the confidence vote.

"He had, as I understand it, a fairly long list of possible job opportunities and they were all rejected," McLellan said in an interview on CTV's Question Period.

McLellan noted Conservatives released only selective portions of the tape. Tory strategist Tim Powers told the same program Sunday that the rest of the tape had "translation issues."
