On Wednesday April 25, 2018, MP David Sweet delivered the following statement in the House of Commons on the B’nai Brith Audit on Anti-Semitic Incidents:

 

Mr. Speaker,

Yesterday B’nai Brith Canada released their 36th Annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents. And while 2017 was a year of celebration for many Canadians, it was a truly difficult year for the Jewish community.

 

Last year, as in the year before, antisemitism reached record breaking highs, with acts of vandalism having doubled and acts of violence having increased by almost 50%.

 

The audit highlights disturbing instances of anti-Semitism on campuses, including calls to physical violence by a student leader at McGill, bomb threats at York, and an attempt by the University of Ottawa Student Union to revoke the status of a campus Jewish group.

 

What is even more disturbing Mr. Speaker is that this year, there is a section called “antisemitism in the political sphere”, which discusses the actions of elected officials, including Members of this House.

 

Mr. Speaker, many experts that study racism refer to anti-Semitism as “the canary in the mine”, an indicator of general patterns of racism across the country. I call upon all Members of this House to be active and loud in denouncing all acts of racism, particularly anti-Semitism. Anything short of that brings shame upon this place.

Justin Trudeau is the only Prime Minister to have ever been found to have broken federal ethics laws, and he's done it twice. He's done it twice, he'll do it again.

Heading into this election, Trudeau had already become the only Prime Minister in Canadian history to be found guilty of breaking ethics laws. Now, he has done it again.

Knocking on doors in Upper Stoney Creek yesterday just as a Canadians were reminded about Justin Trudeau's ethical lapses in the SNC-Lavalin scandal. Certainly heard about it at the doors, plus the challenges of Liberal tax increases on middle class families. Our positive Andrew Scheer Conservative message of helping Canadians get ahead and helping small businesses and the economy was well received.

Thanks to my amazing crew! We covered a lot of ground. Almut and I truly appreciate all your support. #FlamGlan Conservative Party of Canada - Parti conservateur du Canada Conservative Party Volunteer Team #victoryisknocking

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.

100%!!! The Canadian People are sickened by the lack of actions taken by our "Royal" Canadian Mounted Police with the ongoing violations of Canadian Laws by our standing PM.

Does this mean that the Prime Minister Justine Trudeau is above the laws of this nation. So we now have moved into a dictatorship! NDP park in handicap parking! I’m going to run for Government so I can get away with stuff!

.... This connection with an RCMP investigation is desperately needed in Canada NOW .DUTY: The RCMP is the Canadian national police service .... and an agency of =the Ministry of Public Safety Canada. The RCMP has primary responsibility for = national security law enforcement across Canada (to reduce risk of terrorism .... at,... within ...and beyond ...... Canada's borders. so that ....all citizens are aware that " THE CITIZENS" .... are being protected NOT ......the criminals PRESENTLY ..the criminal has been identified ....and confessed his agreement " to taking the blame" ( ?as part of his job of ? parenting the citizens) KEY Canadians eagerly awaits the RCMP response. http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/about-ausujet/index-eng.htm

Enough of this ....lock him up!!!!

RCMP????? You've got to be kidding. He's their Puppet Master and they will do what he says and LOOK THE OTHER WAY!!!!!

It’s over due

Scheer had better be careful or Trudeau may threaten to sue him again!
