REPORT: Trudeau Planning To Suppress Debate As Parliament Returns


Another reversal of Trudeau’s promise of “a new kind of politics.”

As Parliament returns for the fall session, the Trudeau government is seeking to suppress debate.

As reported by HuffPost Canada, the government has given notice that they will use “time allocation” to limit the amount of debate that can take place on government legislation.

This will cut the opposition off from having a real say on what the government is proposing, making it easier for Trudeau to ram through his agenda without much parliamentary scrutiny.

Empty words

When the Liberals were in opposition, they regularly criticized the Harper government for using time allocation, often calling it “anti-democratic.”

Now, they’re using the same tactics they attacked.

The suppression of debate comes as the Trudeau government is facing growing criticism, particularly over tax changes that will hurt small businesses and could push Canada into a recession. They also face continued anger from millions of Canadians over the $10.5 million payment to Omar Khadr.

The Trudeau government has made clear that any discussion of strengthening democracy was just empty words. They were glad to get elected on a promise of respecting parliament, now they grab all the power they can get and seek to suppress the voices of other parties.

Opposition must avoid mistakes of the past

During the Harper era, the Conservatives were often criticized for using too many parliamentary procedures to limit debate. They should avoid that mistake the next time they get into government, and should remember the tradition of the Reform Party era where respect for parliament, debate, and free votes was paramount.

After all, the Trudeau government is especially weak on the issue of respecting democracy.

Trudeau has broken his promises on electoral reform, and tried to push through huge changes to parliament without the support of the other parties. He has destroyed any credibility he could have had as someone who believed in a stronger democracy. In fact, Trudeau has made things even worse, weakening the parliamentary watchdog positions by leaving interim appointees in the job (who have less authority because they can be removed by Trudeau more easily).

Clearly, Trudeau has shown far less respect for Canada’s democracy than Harper did, yet the elitist media rarely admits it.

That’s why the opposition must hold Trudeau accountable for his failures and his lies, and explain how they will do better and finally give our country the democracy Canadians deserve.

  1. Is there no doubt that Trudeau s government is all about deception, deviation, obstinacy and ” fake news ” ? Too often , action is taken by this fraudulent government after the Conservative advice on an issue has been publicly released making it clear that the Liberals cannot , do not and WILL not think sanely, cannot actually solve problems and definitely do not represent the public majority view . It is time they LEAVE …or be ousted .

  2. So far since in gov, the liberals have yet to answer any questions and time limit is a problem? Come on man. NOHING WAS ACCOMPLISHED AND LIBERAL WILL CONTINUE WITH THEIR TACTIC.

  3. I am not surprised at all, after all he has been doing this all along anyway. Take the deal with Khadar,, the money going to saudi Arabia and the millions to the Clinton Foundation. Why we citizens should pay into a totally private foundation is beyond me.

  4. Am wondering why the opposition does not go “on strike” like Government employees do when they don’t get what they want. What an uproar that would cause!

  5. Mr. Speaker, I would like to submit my question to the teacher from Papineau, but we all know he incapable of an intelligent response, therefore I direct my question to the Honorable Member from _ _ _ _ _ _ _.

    My question, Mr. Speaker: Why is the Member from Papineau so full of hatred for Canada and Canadians?
    —————————————————————————————
    Mr. Speaker, The Liberals intend to restrict free speech in Parliament, yet the Member from Papineau has wasted our time giving the same childish immature response 18 times in a row. If he acts like a prissy spoiled brat like that again, would you please get one of his nannies to change his diaper?

  6. 2019 cannot come soon enough. Trudeau is no different from his father. He makes Mao look like s conservative and appears to be doing everything he can to destroy our democracy. Never in all my years have I seen such a destructive out of control government. Canadians deserve much much better and must do everything possible to ensure he’s never elected again. Liberal back benchers can help put a stop to this nonsense by standing up for Canadians and Canada, and crossing the floor, and joining with the opposition in a vote of non-confidence. http://nationalpost.com/opinion/david-frum-the-disastrous-legacy-of-pierre-trudeau

  7. Trudeau is the epitome of dictator. He simply does what the hell he wants. He’s laughing at Canadians. Has no use for us. Sees us as his minions to ignore.
    An evil, hateful soulless POS!

  8. I am really getting tired of Trudeau always saying….”This is what Canadians want”. I wonder what Canadians he’s talking about? Must be all those people that want a selfie with him. Personally, I don’t think Canadians want to be taxed to death so he can throw the Canadians money in every direction but Canada.
