The very first question posed to Justin Trudeau when he left Rideau Hall after the election writs were dropped was from a Globe and Mail journalist who, essentially, asked him why he was still trying to cover-up the role of the PMO in the SNC-Lavalin fiasco about which the RCMP are trying to determine if a crime (obstruction of justice) was committed. Justin Trudeau, being Justin Trudeau, posed against a fake background of “ordinary Canadians” and then he lied.
He said that the limited waiver of cabinet confidentiality that he granted to allow Jody Wilson-Raybould to speak out just a wee tiny bit was the biggest in Canadian history. That was not true. Robert Fife, speaking elsewhere said that honour probably went to Paul Martin when he waived confidence to allow the Gomery Inquiry into Liberal corruption to move forward.
Now, even the Liberal friendly Toronto Star says it was a lie:
Now, I suspect that Justin Trudeau might not really know it’s a lie. He is unlikely to understand the difference between the truth and convenient fantasies. He has a somewhat limited intellect, I think.
The simple fact is that Canadians cannot trust Justin Trudeau with anything … not with the truth and, above all, not with their votes.
