Justin: Caught Left-Handed
SNC-Lavalin cookie jar closed for business?
Only if they don't eat their dinners.
NatNewswatch: Liberals wouldn’t take hidden SNC-Lavalin money now, Trudeau says
Huh? The "late 2000's"? Did I fall asleep and miss almost a whole century? Shades of Methuzelah! I'm even more afraid than usual to look in the mirror!
Or is this a cagey way of saying without saying that the graft will continue until at least 3000?
Talk about obfuscation!* You notice he's not saying what does happen?
Okay, what does happen goes, reportedly, something like this:
NatPost: An SNC-Lavalin lobbyist attended Liberal donor events, critics say it was cash-for-access
Donor events generally include very expensive dinners and no doubt Justin earned his cookies.
And they still wonder why so many voters are cynical about government. They're turning me into an Anarchist, sort of. I even thought of attending the May Day BarBQ & March, but Environment Canada is predicting dire rain, which, like "global warming", so far doesn't seem to be happening, but I'm not taking any chances.
Continuing with the National Newswatch article:
First of all, "when we came to power" just makes me shudder! If that's how government leaders see themselves, then why do they keep calling it "public service"? That alone gives one reason to believe that all politicians, Right, Left or Different, are self-serving influence seekers.
How does it help to say that all of the SNC participants are "former employees" who left the company with healthy bonuses, and imply that the Law came down real hard on one of them in May 2018 (what took them so long?), when the sentence imposed was a virtual slap on the wrist:
NatPost: Liberals accused of cover-up after report reveals details of SNC-Lavalin's illegal donations
Not exactly a punishment considering this was after what could only have been a huge departure bonus. What is being (sort of) revealed is a tiny droplet in a very smelly bucket.
But take a look at who is calling the kettle black!
Usually one has to read a right-leaning news outlet to see criticism of the Liberals. So one is left to wonder how deep the "CBC investigation" actually went (especially when it took them so very, very long to reveal the strongly alleged and partially acknowledged proclivities of their biggest radio star, whose punishment was merely to make an apology -- and who, not incidentally, has reportedly reappeared and "continues to be a weird mixture of delusional and pathetic".
Certainly, the CBC, indirectly at least, came down hard on the Cons by publishing this opinion piece:
CBC: Opposition is a caricature, and Scheer is a humid performer: Neil Macdonald
"Tralalalalalala", says Maggie Muggins; "I wonder what will happen tomorrow". Turns out she's opened up a site called "Maggie Muggins Designs" and at least one commenter is "eating it all up".
"I love hunny", says Pooh, but he might have to consider cookies until the bees come back.
"Mmmm, Coookeees", says Cookie Monster. He has blue fur, the colour of Cons.
By the way, I'm pretty sure my web host clutters up your cache with cookies, but rest assured, I did not bake them.
