Justin Trudeau promised sunny ways, but what he has delivered is anything but.
He promised to be ethical and accountable, but he has now twice been found to have broken federal ethics laws.
He promised to be open and honest with Canadians, but when it came out that he and officials in his office inappropriately pressured the Attorney General, he denied it and said he never did such a thing. The Ethics Commissioner determined that was false.
Canada needs a Prime Minister that upholds the rule of law and respects our democratic institutions, not one that seeks to tear them down.
Andrew Scheer We now have a clear picture of who Justin Trudeau truly is. And it’s not who he promised he would be.
He promised he would be accountable and ethical. Instead, time and time again, he has used the power of his office to enrich himself, reward his friends, and punish his critics.
He promised he would be open and honest. But let’s remember on the day this story first broke Justin Trudeau denied it completely. He said that the story was false. He then said that he never pressured Jody Wilson-Raybould. We know now that is false. He also said that she never came to him with her concerns. Again, we know now that was false. And he said that he would be happy to work and cooperate with the Ethics Commissioner. And now we know that is false as well.
On the eve of this election, the choice before Canadians has never been more clear. Between a Prime Minister who abuses his power, bends the law for his friends, attempts to silence his critics and destroys their reputations. And a Conservative government led by a Prime Minister who will uphold the rule of law, respect our democratic institutions, and help all Canadians get ahead. ... See MoreSee Less
Our leader Andrew Scheer is responding to today's Ethics Commissioner report regarding Justin Trudeau and the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Take a listen:
Andrew Scheer I’m responding to today’s breaking news that Justin Trudeau has been once again been found guilty of breaking federal ethics laws, this time for the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal.
Trudeau promised he would be open and honest. Instead, on the day the scandal broke in the Globe and Mail, he said it was false – and he spent the next two months repeatedly misleading Canadians.
We now know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Justin Trudeau is not as advertised.
Je commente la nouvelle d’aujourd’hui selon laquelle Justin Trudeau est de nouveau reconnu coupable d’infraction aux lois fédérales sur l’éthique, cette fois pour le scandale de corruption SNC-Lavalin.
Trudeau avait promis d’être ouvert et honnête, mais le jour où le scandale a éclaté dans le Globe and Mail, il a dit que c’était faux. Pendant deux mois, il a trompé les Canadiens.
Nous savons maintenant sans l’ombre d’un doute que Justin Trudeau n’est pas celui qu’il prétendait être. ... See MoreSee Less
