MORE CORRUPTION? Trudeau Facing NEW Ethics Crisis


On the same day the government announced the PM was “recusing” himself from the pick of the next Ethics Commissioner because of his ongoing Aga Khan trip problem, Justin Trudeau has been accused of a new ethics violation.

The accusation was made by Democracy Watch – a non-partisan group that advocates for government ethics.

Here’s the issue:

In June 2016, Trudeau appointed John Herhalt as the Treasurer of the Liberal Party. Herhalt was the “public sector leader” for KPMG – a large accounting firm.

The exact same month Trudeau appointed Herhalt as Liberal Party Treasurer, a committee dominated by Liberal MP’s shut down an investigation into KPMG for using the Isle of Man as an offshore tax-dodge.

Herhalt had originally left KPMG in 2013, but he went back in 2016. He stayed with KPMG until October of 2016, meaning he spent five months managing the finances of the Federal Liberals, while also working for KPMG.

In fact, it has been reported that Herhalt still uses his KPMG email, phone number, and voicemail. Even worse, Herhalt’s bio was only taken off the KPMG website today, as this news broke.

I am sure you can see the serious problem here, and it’s why Democracy Watch rightfully sees it as a huge ethics issue.

The head of Democracy Watch is Duff Conacher, a well-respected advocate who teaches about government and ethics at the University of Ottawa. He is not a partisan figure, so Trudeau government efforts to dismiss his concerns can be seen for the political propaganda they are.

KPMG ran “Sham Scheme” for millionaires

The investigation into KPMG was looking at a disturbing issue. As reported by CBC, “The CRA has alleged that KPMG ran a “sham” offshore scheme for multimillionaire Canadians that was “intended to deceive” the federal treasury.”

Notice that the Trudeau government shut down the investigation into KPMG on June 7th, 2016 – the same month Herhalt was appointed by Trudeau.

Shutting the investigation down and then appointing Herhalt so quickly certainly looks incredibly corrupt to many people.

And Trudeau bears direct responsibility. No appointment of a treasurer can happen without Trudeau’s approval, meaning he would have known exactly who Herhalt was.

This wasn’t just some mistake. It’s a serious ethical problem for a government already facing a growing public perception of deepening corruption.

And this is just what we’ve heard about. Imagine what’s going on behind the scenes.

Trudeau’s unethical government

It feels like every day brings a new Trudeau ethics scandal.

In his time in office, Justin Trudeau has already faced four ethics investigations. Now, this could be number five. The fact that it involves a company that was helping the elites avoid their taxes is yet another example of Trudeau serving the powerful at the expense of everyone else.

We can see how Trudeau’s arrogant and elitist attitude, combined with his contempt for Canadian taxpayers, is creating one ethical problem after another. He was never focused on helping Canadians, just enriching those in his social circle.

Canada is a beautiful country, and we deserve far better than a government that lurches from one ethical scandal to another, while falling under a darkening cloud of corruption. Our country must be returned to the Canadian people.

  1. It seems like there is something new everyday because there IS something new everyday from this…..group . Can someone please tell me how we can stop this monster – must be a way .

    1. shut off all the money to his government and every other government coffer via a national strike/revolt. NO MONEY, NO POWER! Either that or we begin a civil war because THERE IS NO WAY WE ARE GOING TO HAVE THE CHANCE OR EVEN THE POSSIBILITY TO VOTE HIM OUT NEXT ELECTION!! THE LAST ONE WAS RIGGED AND FULL OF FRAUD I BELIEVE AND SO TOO WILL BE THE NEXT ONE- WHICH HE PROBABLY HAS ALREADY BOUGHT AND PAID FOR WITH OUR MONEY ANYWAYS!

      1. I totally agree that the election was rigged! The election was called before the Western province were even counted! Trudeau and his corrupt government need to be Removed ASAP!

  2. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK I AM A SENIOR PENSIONER AND CAN’T AFFORD TO DONATE WE MUST HAVE THE GOVENOR GENERAL EXPEL THIS CRIMINAL FROM OFFICE THANK YOU

  3. Wish people would stop using the word elitist and progressive. These words are far to flattering for people who should be named for what they are , socialists

    1. Totally agree. So too is the “Democratic” party in U.S. Really? Democratic?
      Elite is anything but a name for the left. Elite implies moneyed, aristocrats which the left are nothing like. Probably called elitists because they see themselves as such. Snot nosed, morally superior.
      Progressives because they only believe in going forward (not necessarily in the way most people understand ‘progress’) but forward into an abyss of unreality, unicorns, utopia and all. Also includes ridding society of it’s history as we can see happening in U.S. but also in Academia where they are teaching a different history envisioned by them.

  4. Thank you for keeping us informed as Canadians aren’t getting the truth from mainstream media.

    1. if you want to fight Trudeau you have to dismantle CBC first.They hide his corruption and protect all liberal wrong doing.
      Fight against public funds for fake news. Tell CBC what they fear to hear, no more funds for their corruption. NO MORE CBC, NO MORE PUBLIC NEWS , NO MORE BOMBARDIER, NO MORE POLITICIANS CHARITABLE FOUNDATIONS, NO MORE FUND RAISING SCHEMES FOR PAY-TO PLAY, NO MORE TRUDEAU.
      we have to copy the rotten tactics of the USA democrats and start protesting.We can scare the Media out of their jobs when they offer fake news, and we can dry the flow of liberal corruption. Just be public and protest. If the criminals of the left can protest a democratic election in the USA, and try to paralyze the new government, we can copy their methods against our evil elected party and the pretty devil boy, and we can restore some morality to our society. Since the MSMedia does not work in favour of democracy, lets not fund them and lets create our own media for independent information with journalists that do not want to participate in the flow of lies and deceit that plague our days

  5. A phoney, pretend Prime Minister who takes orders from the super wealthy eliteists and a Cabinet of incompetent liars and changing Parliament procedures that have worked since the beginning of Canada to make the government less accountable to the citizens of Canada. A Prime Minister that violates immigration rules to please the corrupt UN and forces by manipulation and extortion, new taxes that fraudulently affect Canadians incomes to give Billions of dollars to other foreign countries while cutting back services and infrastructure development in Canada. and cutting the Military budget to the point where we are at risk of protecting our Canada. A Prime Minister that continues to put himself above the law and acts like a child in Parliament by skirting questions, reasonable questions in the House of Commons.
    Is this the kind of person we want to be the Leader of Canada and is the kind of Party we want to represent our interests as Canadians.??? He is not trustworthy and has to go.

    1. This PM is here because we allowed it to happen. I did not vote for him but I did not do anything against him either, so I feel guilty because I did not understand the danger this character is to the good health of the Democracy in our country , a country that I deserve more than he does. This is not his country to ruin.
      With his infamous Motion-103 , I saw the last straw. Now we have to became personal, we can not ignore his purposes.
      CBC does not even comment much on the matter. They do not have time to defend the citizens right to free speech. They are much more interested to follow the mafia style actions of the Usa democrats with the always present Obama and all the Clintonians behind all the ridiculous demonstrations carrying more racism and divisive hatred than I have ever seen in my long life. That is what CBC reports with our money. Canadian news are to be hidden from us. They are fighting Trump all the way, with their corrupt inventiveness, even here in Canada. May be the ultimate godfather Soros has not been too generous to Canadian Media, but he is a good friend of the Trudeau family, I am sure.

    1. He sent millions to the Clinton Foundation, and that was my money. Will part of that money of mine return to Canada ,as a donation to the Trudeau Foundation, that I never intended to contribute to?

      Trudope is whirling my money around and I do not like it. Out with corrupt politicians’ foundations and OUT, OUT

      WITH WEASEL TRUDEAU.

      OUT OF MY COUNTRY, NOW!!

      1. Do you have a reference for Trudeau giving our tax dollars to the Clinton Foundation? I will gladly post it on my facebook page and every youtube that it pertains to!

  6. Excellent article. Unfortunately, the lame-stream media will ignore this entire issue. One need only look to Global, CBC and CTV news cycles and see them hysterically covering the latest Trump fabrication. Little Jihadi-Justin has insulated himself well with a fawning fifth estate, adoring civil servants and squealing teeny boppers…

    1. Pretty lame in comparison. Liberals still do it best. In any case, by misdirecting you are actually saying that Liberal corruption is just fine as long as the other guy has done it also.
