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.

He said the Nanaimo election results clearly show Canadians # 1 concern is the environment and that it shows we approve of the carbon tax and other measures to curb pollution etc. Paraphrased but pretty close to the mark

So, basically he takes a pretty much meaningless by-election in an out-of-the-way riding and pumps it full of his b.s. and all of a sudden we "Canadians" are ALL onboard with him and his policies?!?

Ain't that just typical............wtfe

A friend from Saskatchewan recommended a morning talk show. It's available 'live' on your computer.
Host is John Gormley . . . former Minister of Parliament, QC lawyer, author, and a very verbal critic of Justin Trudeau.

May be worth a listen if you're weary of the 'rainbows and unicorns' fare from the west coast.

Am happy for Vice-Admiral Norman . . . . and selfishly had hoped that he and his legal team would beat the charges in the courts.
Also hoping that V-A Norman makes a public disclosure in this sordid affair.

In post interview the head solicitor introduced her legal team = all women and came out with this zinger "Fortunately Vice Admiral Norman did not fire the women that he had hired" Wonder who that was directed at??

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.

Then came Lavscam, broken by the Globe and Mail, on Feb. 7.

Trudeau, through his tone-deaf response, shredded his carefully crafted image as a politician who was different, who would never mislead Canadians, who would defend female and indigenous rights, who would govern on behalf of the middle class, not special interests.

With Lavscam, the transformation of Trudeau from Teflon, where nothing sticks, to Velcro, where everything does, was complete.

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.

He also tried to balance priorities in the corruption case involving SNC-Lavalin, a major Montreal engineering company that was accused of bribery in Libya during the rule of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. While Canada had met international commitments to penalize companies involved in corruption overseas, Mr. Trudeau pressed his former justice minister — improperly, she said — to seek a civil penalty in the SNC-Lavalin case.

He said he was worried that a criminal conviction, which would bar the company from government contracts, would jeopardize thousands of Canadian jobs.

After saturation coverage of the case in the news media, Mr. Trudeau’s polls, which once seemed to defy gravity, have tumbled downward. His Liberal party now trails the Conservatives, and most voters disapprove of Mr. Trudeau’s job performance.

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.

I wish with every fiber in my body that this sordid affair kicks him to the curb in politics.
That he goes down in history for the town fool he's constantly played, and for his blatant
mockery of the justice system as it should be. For his condescending attitude toward the
Indigenous, and his stubborn refusal to admit he made mistakes and to make things right.
And especially his vendetta against legal honest gun owners.
