The gigantic contrast between a $75K investment and Moneybags Morneau profiting on his shares while serving as Finance Minister only makes the Trudeau government look even worse.
The desperate Trudeau government is throwing everything against the wall in an attempt to see what sticks and distracts from their growing ethical scandals.
As Canadians remain outraged over the fact that Bill Moneybags Morneau used an ethics loophole to retain control over his assets while serving in the powerful finance minister role (a huge potential conflict-of-interest), Trudeau is desperate to change the channel.
That desperation led to a hilariously weak attempt to smear Andrew Scheer over his real estate investment.
Trudeau sent out Liberal MP Raj Grewal to criticize Scheer for having an RELP (Real Estate Limited Partnership). Scheer has $75K invested in an RELP – which brings investors together to purchase properties. As a result, Scheer reportedly partially owns a small shopping mall in Edmonton, and a warehouse/office building.
Thats it, yet hilariously, the Trudeau Liberals are trying to make it into an issue.
Weak and failed attempt by Trudeau to change the conversation
We can all see how weak the Liberal attempt is here.
- First, Scheer’s investments are public record, not quietly pushed beyond view like Moneybags’ offshore corp, French villa, and numbered company.
- Second, Scheer isn’t in a position to pass laws that benefit his investments.
- Third, there is a gigantic difference between a $75K investment and Morneau’s ability to make millions in possible profits from his shares while he was finance minister.
It takes just a moment to see through the weak Trudeau attempt to smear Scheer, and it just shows how worried the Trudeau government is about the growing anger and mistrust many Canadians feel towards the federal government. Their attempt to change the channel will only backfire, since it rekindles discussion about the ethics problems facing Trudeau cabinet ministers.
The real issue and focus is the fact that Moneybags Morneau, and other Trudeau cabinet ministers, were in a position to potentially profit from government actions, raising doubts about every decision the Trudeau government has made while in power.
Canadians want answers, not weak distractions from Trudeau.
