A report from the Toronto Star raises some “interesting” questions.
According to the report, Toronto Lawyer Andrew Sanfilippo donated over $1,800 to the Trudeau Liberals – including buying a ticket to a fundraising dinner.
From March of 2016 to March of 2017, the lawyer gave a total of $1,878.87 to the party.
Then, on July 18, he was appointed as a Judge to the Ontario Superior Court.
Sanfilippo’s donation and appointment does not break any laws, and the government says his donation did not factor into the appointment.
As noted by the Star, “Using the Elections Canada online database of contributions, the Star found that 13 people with names and locations matching those of new judges appointed this year by Ottawa have donated money to political parties since 2006. Of these, two involved contributions to the Conservatives, and the rest were to the Liberal party.”
A deeper problem of political influence
While there was no crime here, there is clearly an overall issue of political influence that goes beyond this specific instance. Additionally, similar concerns over political donations possibly leading to government appointments were raised under the Harper government as well.
Political elites concentrated on Bay Street in Toronto have subverted the political system, creating a revolving door where bankers, elitist lawyers, and globalist “intellectuals” dominate the levers of government. Meanwhile, the voices of regular working Canadians are ignored. A more decentralized government would solve this problem, as the elites could govern themselves as they choose, while leaving the rest of us to make our own choices. Instead, and particularly under Trudeau, the elites use their influence to push their policies on all of us.
So, while there isn’t a crime in the appointment of a judge after political donations, there is more evidence that the government is further removed from the Canadian people than ever before.
The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
That’s why I write.
