A tough cop-out
but someone's gotta do it.
Tyee: An RCMP Investigation Could Sink Trudeau. Here’s Why It Won’t Happen
Where do politicians learn to talk that way? Surely he knew whether he knew or didn't know about the fraud in the program. If the people who run this country see a difference between fact and evidence of fact, it's no wonder there's such a growing lack of respect for political entities.
In similar fashion, regarding the missing and murdered aboriginal women, Trudeau stated: "we accept the finding that this was genocide". That's like saying, well, if you say so, but ...
He's also saying "was" as if it were in the past and not still going on. And did he dare to use the royal "we"?
On Martin's heels came Harper:
[See: Canada's current Deputy Ministers]
By the time everybody's forgotten what Martin said (above) out comes a damning statement against him. From the CBC:
But again, the wording is vague. The whole Martin government? Or just Martin himself? By this time, did anybody care about or even recall the Sponsorship Scandal? Stephen Harper was PM and his government was only "Accountable" for current misdeeds; most of them, anyway.
The Tyee continues with regard to Trudeau:
See what comes first? The "electoral process". Not "Accountability". Who'd have thought the RCMP were, well, cowards?
If the decision is taken not to investigate, will it be based on what Trudeau personally did or did not do, or on the office he holds? Is there a dictum somewhere that sitting PM's don't have to be accountable, especially when running for re-election?
Are certain people more equal before the law than others? Sorry; dumb question. If the RCMP are unwilling or not free to uphold the law, then maybe it's time they rode off into the sunset.
But, if you look up the Gov't of Canada's pages on Policing - "Learn how we are keeping Canadians safe" (especially Canadian politicians, and except for a couple of thousand missing First Nations females) you'll see it's a glowing advertisement for the RCMP.
They are IN baby; the Government loves them; they are a political entity in themselves, with all of the subterfuge implied, and they're not going away.
Despite that it's a sad indictment of the RCMP that the CBC is doing the investigating of the missing and dead women.
