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.

shut off all the money to his government and every other government coffer via a national strike/revolt. NO MONEY, NO POWER!

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!

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!!

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!

There are lists of his contributions to foreign foundations, in the internet. The latest contribution to the Clinton Foundation was a few months ago, for 20 million. In another list , for 2016 contributions to the same ,the number was an appalling 600 million, but I do not know if that is including the many millions of contributions to Haiti’s recovery, which money the Clintons decided not to give out, because of corruption in Haiti. Better to keep it for a corruption of their own choice. We should be asking CBC for this research, but their obsession is to fight… Read more »

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…

There has never been any democratic government without ethics scandals, but you’re dreaming if you think that the current Liberal government’s sins can hold a candle to those of Harper’s Conservatives: https://www.thestar.com/news/federal-election/2015/08/14/a-conservative-collection-of-harper-government-scandals.html

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.

Anything Harper has done is small potatoes compared to the little potato. Trudeau is changing and weakening the very fabric of this country. The more he pushes his agenda, the liberals will find they will pay as heavy a price as the rest of us.

Who are you tying to fool, Christian? Trudeau’s credibility is beyond repair. Drama techniques and tears on demand will not be enough, and no apologizing will ever correct personal faults of character. “Show -off- morality” is the most immoral. Some people are born corrupt, and power turns them into MONSTERS like Hitler. It can happen faster than expected. In Canada, corruption is the DNA of fake liberalism. Nowadays ,they have the monopoly of it. There is no Liberal Party left. What there is, is only the poverty of the leftist minds in action, spending the stale Marxist, distorted ,views of… Read more »
