Once More Into the Very Serious Breach
... just doing my job, insists Trudeau.
NationalNewsWatch: Trudeau Breached Conflict of Interest Act says Ethics Commissioner
How cool is that? Trudeau turns his own highly questionable action into something that Canadians wanted instead of what SNC Lavalin wanted.
Unrepentant and saintly to the core.
Well, what could he say? Mea culpa? Hardly. He want to be re-elected; in fact he's pretty sure he will be, despite that he has little else to fall back on but his habitual worn-out mantra: "standing up for Canadians". Nobody, including himself, knows what it really means, since he doesn't indicate to which distinct group of Canadians he refers. He can't possibly stand up for one without raising the ire of another.
At the height of the Lavalin scandal, Wilson-Raybould spoke of ethics while Trudeau and Butts talked ad nauseam about jobs, jobs, jobs, because they wanted to be seen as "standing up for Canadians".
This despite the fact that it was stated over and over again from various sources that those jobs would still exist, though they might not be via SNC Lavalin.
"Standing up for Canadians" goes along with Trudeau's other mantra: "grow the economy".
Rather than repeat myself regarding the PM's standard flimflam tactics, can I please encourage you to read (re-read) my post of March 24/19: He's such a nice boy, that Justin ... in which he talked down to his audience:
He's at his best (worst?) when talking to "ordinary" Canadians who really, really want to believe what he's saying because they are afraid of the alternative, and to whom he can repeat the same trigger phrases over and over, much like an attempt at mind control.
Seriously. Trudeau deliberately sets out to bamboozle the voters -- just as Gerald Butts tried to mind-bend the Justice Committee. From my post of March 12/19: Of mice and doofusses ...
Still ... there's the strange phenomenon that often when there's a Conservative premier in Ontario, there's a Liberal PM in Ottawa. Ontario voters seem to need the comfort of balance.
You can make your own assessment of that by reviewing the following:
However, it's already been noted by pollsters that Scheer's biggest hurdle is Ontario:
Maclean's: The Tories' nagging problem
It's simple: Ontarians rule Canada simply because their province houses two seats of government, provincial and federal, and has the largest population, with Quebec coming second. It's even been seriously postulated that Ontario should become a country in itself. I can imagine that our aggressive Foreign Minister would welcome increased status on the world stage.
And Ontario could incorporate like Washington, DC, City of London, and Vatican City:
Sinhalanet: Three Corporations Rule the World
Hey, we've already got one of those. Altogether now: My Corporation 'tis of thee ...
Or maybe Toronto alone could be our Washington DC?
It does have the requisite phallic tower.
Years ago, a down-East politician told me that "Canada would not last the century". Currently, Wikipedia seems to provide the most info about Canada's secession movements.
