“Ladies and gentlemen …”

Ladies and gentlemen,” Pierre Poilievre says at 1’35” of this linked video, “this is a coverup.”

He says that after showing page after page after page of “released” documents that are totally blacked out …

… and after explaining that the prorogation of parliament means that the opposition parties cannot, now, force the government to come clean with Canadians.

He’s 100% correct, of course, “this is a coverup.” It is Justin Trudeau trying, frantically, to cover up the fact that he ordered his government to give the Kielburger brothers hundreds of millions of dollars after they had paid his family hundreds if thousands. It was a quid pro quo and it was, therefore, likely a crime which, Global News reports, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are “examining.” “Examining” is not the same as investigating and we can be sure that Justin Trudeau will be ordering Bill Blair, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, to do everything he can to prevent the “examination” from becoming a formal police investigation which could lead to criminal charges. We can expect that Minister Blair and his chief of staff will he having long, hear-to-heart chats (most likely through his chief-of-staff, Zita Astravas, with RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki …

… whether it will work or not remains to be seen, perhaps the “examination” will be inconclusive, but perhaps Chief Commissioner Lucki will need to be persuaded to step in and stop a real threat to the prime minister.

If Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had not prorogued parliament then the opposition members of the committee investigating the We Charity scandal would have been able to outvote the minority Liberals and force bureaucrats, political staffers and even ministers to reveal what is under all that black ink and it seems most likely, to me, that it would be clear that Prime Minister Trudeau is, personally, behind this idea. But he did prorogue parliament and the committees are suspended.

What’s needed, in September, is for ALL the opposition parties to unite ~ it needs all of them because the Liberals only need 170 votes to survive they have 157 so the NDP’s 24 are enough to save them ~ and to …

… defeat the Liberals and force a general election.

(Given that the last election was less than a year ago and given the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor General is allowed and might be advised (by her own staff and outside constitutional experts) to not drop the writs for an election and, instead, ask the ( brand new) Conservative leader to seek the confidence of the house. My money is on an election.)

Canada needs a new, honest, ethical, fiscally prudent, Conservative government for a few years while the Liberal Party gets rid of Justin Trudeau and reforms itself, from within, cleaning the Augean Stables left behind since Lester Pearson left office. That very necessary, for Canada, process may take nearly a decade. But it needs to be done …

… and my Liberal friends (and I keep telling you, truthfully, that I have some) know what needs to be done, but the party bosses are not inclined to allow it.

Canada needs (at least) two parties that are ready and able to govern. That means it needs a strong Liberal Party that is ready to provide the kinds of vision, policies and leadership that fine Liberal leaders like St Laurent, Pearson and Martin have done in the past. The Trudeaus, père en fils, and their henchmen and followers have nearly destroyed a valued and vital Canadian institution.
