Justin Trudeau may have violated Federal Law
Mr. “talking about the middle class” Justin Trudeau certainly has high-class tastes.
It’s not enough for him to use taxpayer provided transportation when he’s partying with his billionaire buddies.
Nope, that’s not good enough for him.
So, he used the Aga Khan’s private helicopter to get to and from the private island getaway.
There’s only one problem with that: It violates ethics rules.
Here is section 12 of the Conflict of Interest Act:
“No minister of the Crown, minister of state or parliamentary secretary, no member of his or her family and no ministerial adviser or ministerial staff shall accept travel on non-commercial chartered or private aircraft for any purpose unless required in his or her capacity as a public office holder or in exceptional circumstances or with the prior approval of the Commissioner.”
But the PM didn’t visit the ethics commissioner ahead of time.
Trudeau thinks the rules don’t apply to him
Justin Trudeau was born into a life of elitist privilege. He never had to work for what he got. He doesn’t understand the life of Canadian workers – the people who actually pay the bills and keep our country going.
Trudeau’s elitism is catching up to him, as his declining poll numbers show.
Canadians are waking up to how disconnected, arrogant, and unprepared Trudeau is, and the more he shows his elitist attitude to Canadians the fewer and fewer people are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Could he get more out of touch?
Trudeau is currently on a “listening tour” – which he is using to collect data for partisan purposes – as he desperately tries to shed his growing image as a member of the globalist elite.
It won’t work.
Trudeau’s attitude is too ingrained. I don’t think he even sees himself as a servant of Canada, he sees himself as a king or a prince, and he looks at us as his subjects.
That’s why he thinks he can get away with what he does. And that’s why all Canadians need to speak out against his dishonesty and his elitism and make it clear that we won’t accept it.
Until 2019, Marc Garneau would be much better
While the next election is in 2019, it would be great if Canada had a better PM before then. Someone like Marc Garneau would be a huge improvement – at least Garneau served Canada as a fighter pilot and an astronaut and understands what loyalty to Canada means.
Canada deserves a full-time leader, not somebody who would rather hang out with the global elite and sell our country out in the process.
