Further to my last post, a few minutes ago, which is just below, Jesse Snyder, writing in the National Post, reports that “A parliamentary bid to further investigate the SNC-Lavalin scandal has been shut down with the Bloc Québécois being accused of making a “deal” with the Liberals.“
He says that “Conservative MP Michael Barrett, who was pushing to deepen an earlier ethics probe, said the move suggests the “return of the Liberal-Bloc coalition” was at hand … [because] … Marie-Hélène Gaudreau, a rookie Bloc MP, voted against a Conservative motion tabled in the House Ethics committee on Monday, which called for further study into the Ethics Commissioner’s report last year that found Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke conflict of interest laws. The motion, put forward by Barrett, was similar to an earlier motion in February that was also voted down by the Bloc.“
Is the Bloq blocking further inquiries just because it, the BQ, is anti-Conservative? Is it blocking the inquiry because SNC-Lavalin is part of the failing Québec Inc. structure? Or did the separatists make a deal with Justin Trudeau who has, in the past, displayed a pro-Québec bias of his own?
Canada is facing a number of serious problems right now and I understand that the prime minister doesn’t need another inquiry into his breaches of the Conflict of Interest regulations, but the simple fact is that he did break the rules and many, many Canadians think there is still more that needs to come out before we can put this behind us.
It looks, to me, as if the Liberals have made a deal with the separatists. No respectable Canadian leader should ever do that. If Justin Trudeau will not so the honourable thing and resign then the Liberal Party should toss him out of office as the Australians did to their PM just 18 months ago.
