As they should be.
The Hill Times is reporting that many new Liberal MPs are worried that Bill Morneau’s ethics issues could drag them and their party down:
Said one Liberal MP, “People [MPs] don’t understand why are we even dealing with it, doesn’t make any sense. They’re starting to be very concerned about the ethical implications of what’s going on, that’s essentially it. They feel the situation is not a happy one. The opposition parties are portraying us as a bunch of entitled elitists who are in government to look after themselves.”
Also, “Liberal MPs told The Hill Times that rookie MPs and MPs who were elected in the last election with close margins are especially concerned about the controversies, as every political mistake “affects” them and they could lose their seats.”
Of course, myself and many other Canadians have been saying the Trudeau Liberals are “entitled elitists” for some time now, and while the new Liberal MPs are surely worried about perceptions rather than actually opposing their own party, it’s quite interesting that they picked that same phrase.
At a certain point, perception literally is reality. After all, if millions of Canadians are seeing Morneau and the entire Trudeau government as entitled elitists just looking after themselves, that’s because that perception is accurate.
More people are seeing that the Trudeau government has been a giant fraud, built on an image of supporting the middle class while actually serving the entrenched elites and special interests at the expense of the middle class and Canadian workers.
Those Liberal MPs are right to be worried about the fraud being exposed.
