A strange remark about 'unconscious' leaks 

So I'm reading CP's Income Trusts RCMP investigation story and CP quotes Tom Caldwell, chairman of Caldwell Securities Ltd, saying something strange:

"Whenever you're working on a big event and there's a time lag, there's always the possibility of leaks, conscious or unconscious," perhaps through casual chatter by low-level workers. "Remember, this is emanating from Ottawa, so there are people there, maybe working on this, who might not have the wildest idea of the market impact of a misplaced statement - this is just a hypothesis."
Sorry, but EVERYONE who works for the federal Department of Finance knows better than to talk about tax policy announcements. Or should have known better . . .
Enter Rumour, painted full of tongues.
