In the 100 days that have gone by since Jan. 14, 2019, everything has changed. The guaranteed second Trudeau majority? Gone. Polls now say Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives are ahead — or way ahead. Trudeau, meanwhile, is viscerally disliked pretty much everywhere outside of Quebec.

Yep. Have to keep this refreshed in the public's mind. Especially so just prior to October!

Trudeau MUST GO!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Names of SNC employees, executives behind thousands of dollars in illegal Liberal Party donations revealed

Ahhh... But Pierre's Idiot Child says they won't do that any more... :lol:

Liberals wouldn't take hidden SNC-Lavalin money now, Trudeau says


https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/liberals-wouldn-t-take-hidden-snc-lavalin-money-now-trudeau-says-1.4401634

The complete lack of sincerity is underwhelming...

And you ask what I find funny about this horse-pucky?
The complete incompetence is staggering on this case, and at every juncture that gets proven over and over and over again.
Yet those with blinders still refuse to see...

Perhaps not quite so funny, as genuinely alarming as to what Canadians, as a whole, will swallow...

... the biggest impact of the SNC-Lavalin scandal is not hitting the headlines — not in an obvious way.

It was a little more than two months ago that Justin Trudeau’s point man in Washington, Ambassador David MacNaughton, said he was confident that tariffs on steel and aluminum would be lifted.
“I’m confident that we’re going to get there in the next few weeks,” MacNaughton said 10 weeks ago.
When he made those comments on Feb. 21, I doubt he was thinking of May.

Yet here we are and the tariffs have yet to be lifted, those close to the talks and the industry say there is no new movement on this file.
So was McNaughton crazy for saying a deal could be coming soon?

Several sources have told me that around the time McNaughton made those comments, the Americans had made an offer to Canada.

So what happened?

Well quite frankly, one of the main things that happened was SNC-Lavalin.

Not only was this scandal absorbing all the government’s efforts, it took out the point man on this file.
Trudeau’s top political advisor Gerry Butts had developed a respectful working relationship with people in the Trump administration.
They liked Gerry and he was the government’s lead on the tariff file.
When Butts resigned over the SNC-Lavalin scandal, not only was PMO’s attention elsewhere as they tried to contain the scandal, there was no one left to pick up the pieces on the trade file with Washington.

In short, Canada dropped the ball... and now the Americans have moved on to trade issues with China and elsewhere.

Wow, it’s flipped in just the last couple months!
When’s the Election?

Probably sounds like dumb question, but here in the USA we get absolutely no news about Canada at all. In fact, I recall when Jay Leno did his “man on the street” routine and asked college students what two countries bordered the United States. Most people couldn’t name both! Some couldn’t even name one!!!

This is a government so enamoured with the beauty of its own plans, it seems to think the actual operational nuts and bolts are not its problem.

But they are. Election results across the country in recent months suggest Canadians are more concerned about having a government that picks up the phone and listens to them, than one that professes it is saving the world.

Trudeau government trying to cover its tracks

Don’t get caught.

If your political party has been caught obstructing justice — as the political party led by Justin Trudeau assuredly was, in the SNC-Lavalin scandal — what’s the one thing you need to avoid, at all costs?

Getting caught obstructing justice again, of course.

And that’s what the Trudeau regime’s prosecution of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman would have exposed: Senior Trudeau government officials, implicated in a scheme to use the criminal justice system to punish an alleged whistleblower. In this case, the second-highest-ranking officer in the Canadian Forces.

The “crime” Norman was accused of wasn’t a crime at all. In the early days of the Trudeau government, some senior cabinet ministers and political staffers tried to interfere in a multimillion-dollar contract that had been awarded for a much-needed supply ship for the Royal Canadian Navy. As in the LavScam scandal, senior Grits wanted the contract to go to a firm that had supported them politically.

A whistleblower blew the whistle — just like in LavScam — and leaked the story to the media. The Trudeau government was livid. They went after the alleged whistleblower — just like they went after Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott for blowing the whistle on corruption.

Norman — like Wilson-Raybould and Philpott — deserved the Order of Canada, not persecution, for refusing to break the rules to help out a Trudeau government political crony. They didn’t deserve to have their lives and reputations destroyed.

Justin Trudeau — who, angelic visage notwithstanding, is a vengeful and petty little man — went after Norman, viciously. The vice-admiral was criminally charged with breach of trust. Norman vehemently denied he was the source of the leak, and hired one of the best lawyers in Canada, Marie Heinen (who, full disclosure, this writer’s firm has worked with in the past).

That’s when things got interesting.

Back in February, during the pre-trial legal skirmishing over documents Trudeau’s staff were covering up, a shocking revelation came to light. Norman’s lawyers alleged that prosecutors had been talking trial strategy with Trudeau’s personal bureaucrats in the Privy Council Office (PCO).

That’s a big no-no. As in the LavScam case, criminal prosecutions must always be independent of politics. If the likes of Trudeau can use the criminal justice system to reward friends (like SNC-Lavalin) and punish enemies (like Norman), we will have fully become a totalitarian regime. We are no longer a true democracy.

“By all appearances,” one of Norman’s lawyers told the trial judge in February, “this is a more direct influencing of the prosecution … the Prime Minister’s Office, via its right arm the PCO, is dealing directly with the PPSC (Public Prosecution Service of Canada). And the prosecution service is allowing this to happen.”

The presiding judge was not impressed. “So much for the independence of the PPSC,” declared Judge Heather Perkins-McVey.

And, it was at that moment that many of us knew that Norman’s trial — scheduled for August, just weeks before the election writs were going to drop — was never going to happen. In open court, a senior judge had taken note of political interference by Trudeau’s PMO and PCO. And, at that point, for Trudeau and his winged monkeys, it became crucial that the trial never be allowed to happen.

And, now it won’t. As Christie Blatchford revealed in a Postmedia scoop, the Trudeau government abruptly decided to suddenly drop the prosecution of Norman. On Wednesday, they stayed the charges.

After LavScam — and after the attempted show trial of Norman — we can now be left with only one conclusion:

This is the most corrupt federal government in Canada’s history.

And they must — must — be defeated.

There's a time-honoured tradition in Ottawa: when things go wrong — horribly wrong — somebody gets thrown under the bus.

Given all their verbal and mental gymnastics this week, Liberal MPs have shown little curiosity about how they got into this mess in the first place — and a fierce desire to get far away from it.

Says she: “[LavScam] was a wake up call for many – a peek behind the veil of how Ottawa works. I know, like me, many of the class of 2015 who came into federal politics for the first time truly believed there was a different way to do politics. We knew what this was supposed to mean. Unfortunately our experience did not match expectations or the standards we had set ourselves. The last months have led me – and I suspect many of my former colleagues, and I know countless Canadians – to pause and consider the way the system works.”

Enough evidence to send SNC-Lavalin to trial, judge rules

https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/enough-evidence-to-send-snc-lavalin-to-trial-judge-rules-1.4442128

But it seems Trudeau simply can't help himself from running interference...

A Quebec judge may have ordered SNC-Lavalin to stand trial on bribery and corruption charges but that doesn’t mean it will actually happen.

Beyond the possibility of an appeal, we can also expect the Trudeau Liberals to do everything they can to make sure SNC is never prosecuted.

Before the ink was dry on the decision, Attorney General David Lametti was signalling that he and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were willing to give this well-connected firm the break it so desperately wants.

Lametti refused to rule out a deferred prosecution agreement for SNC.

Even before the ruling came down, the PM himself was telegraphing that he wants a sweetheart deal.

“We respect the independence of our judiciary and we won’t comment on an ongoing court case,” Trudeau said before adding the giveaway line: “We’re always going to try and fight for Canadian jobs.”

Despite the high political cost and polls showing the majority of Canadians don’t support the sweetheart deal, Trudeau appears determined to move ahead with one.
