Rob Breakenridge, a well known journalist with the Global network of radio and TV stations and with newspapers in the Postmedia Network, says, in a recent opinion piece for GlobalNews, that “In trying to make sense of the prime minister’s decision to prorogue Parliament back in August, derailing the committee investigations into the WE Charity scandal always seemed like a plausible explanation … [but, he concludes] … after witnessing the government’s desperate attempts to prevent those committees from resuming their work, it now seems like an inescapable conclusion.“
In the National Post Chris Selley noted that “Liberal members of the finance committee spent 11 hours on Thursday [last week] filibustering, moving hopeless amendments and otherwise avoiding a vote on a motion condemning heavy redactions in WE-related emails released in August … [they were released just the day before Parliament was prorogued by Justin Trudeau, and] … Those redactions were numerous enough that Philippe Dufresne, the independent parliamentary law clerk, and even Wayne Easter, the Liberal chair of the committee, expressed some concern. Now, however, Liberals will move heaven and earth to keep those black lines where they are — and they don’t mind how ridiculous they look doing it.“
Why would otherwise sensible and responsible members of parliament make themselves look like cheap carnival midway barkers, as Lorrie Goldstein calls them in Toronto Sun, and clowns? What’s the point?
Mr Breakenridge says that despite its promise of a “laser-like” focus on COVID-19, “The government, though, continues to act like it has something to hide. Just because Canadians expect the government to be taking this pandemic seriously doesn’t give the Liberals a free pass on this matter.” Mr Selley says that “when the asses are braying to keep information from Parliament, and thereby the Canadian people, people really should care. Canadian officialdom guards information as a matter of principle: it is closed by default, no matter how benign the information in principle is. It is immensely frustrating and undemocratic, not to mention costly. But it is also obviously means that any non-benign information will be guarded even more zealously.“
It is, as I have said before, a massive coverup of Watergate proportions and it seems reasonable, to me, to infer that that they may be trying to hide real criminality by the Kielburgers, the prime minister’s family or the prime minister, himself.
Catherine Swift, the former CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business summed up the big problem on social media:
Sadly, it appears that there are none … not one single Liberal MP with even the tiniest shred of honesty or moral courage. I guess Justin Trudeau drove them all out of his caucus …
… and I suppose all the others got the message: do as the führer wishes or you’ll be dumped, too.
The inescapable conclusion for ALL Canadian voters, including all the Liberals who can never, ever bring themselves to vote for any Conservative and who will not stay home and not vote is that if you cannot find a good independent or Libertarian or even Green candidate then, please, for the love of your country, refuse your ballot. There are rumours floating about of a snap election; Canadians must not be saddled with the inept, unethical Justin Trudeau again.
