TROUBLING: Trudeau’s Ethics Commissioner Pick Was “Rebuked” By Auditor General For Performance As Integrity Commissioner

Mario Dion’s nomination isn’t off to a good start.

With the Trudeau government already facing criticism for failing to consult with the opposition on their pick for the new Ethics Commissioner, more concerns are emerging.

An earlier news report included this interesting bit of information:

“In 2014, Michael Ferguson, Canada’s auditor general, publicly rebuked Dion’s performance as the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner of Canada, an office that is supposed to protect public servants who blow the whistle on wrongdoing within the federal government. Dion was appointed commissioner after the previous commissioner resigned amid complaints about the office.”

So, the person the Trudeau government wants to be the new Ethics Commissioner – a position that requires toughness and a willingness to confront the government – was criticized by the Auditor General for their performance in a role that was about protecting those who expose government wrongdoing.

Not good.

The fact that an Auditor General would make a public criticism shows that there were legitimate concerns, and raises serious questions about the choice made by the Trudeau government.

Many will wonder if the government is looking for a “yes man,” rather than someone who will actually confront them. And considering that there are serious, ongoing investigations into both Justin Trudeau and Bill Morneau, the choice of Dion is raising some big-time red flags.

  1. Wow. I had vague hopes of greeting the day with something positive or at least not negative about Trudeau, the Liberals and Islam. Veterans and VE Day attendees being ignored and abused by Hehr, Palestinian terrorists in Vancouver rioting and assaulting others, yet another terrorist attack by a member of the religion of peace in New York, a sanctuary city, and now Trudeau installing a fawning sycophant to monitor his bosses “ethics”. The last would be an easy job because Trudeau diesn’t have any ethics to monitor.

    Does trudeau realize that when he looks in the mirror that he is looking at a loser? What a pathetic embarrassment.

  2. There is no doubt that, in fine Liberal tradition, Trudeau’s appointee will be someone who knows how to play the game. There’s a different boss in charge,but this is still the same Party whose Leader should have had a corrupt official jailed for selling government contracts,instead the PM appointed him Ambassador to Denmark.
    Politics in Quebec has always rivalled that of Mexico for corruption, but it usually takes the new PM a few terms to become quite as arrogant about it as Trudeau,after only two years!

    Congratulations,Mr.Dion on your cushy appointment,make sure you do not EVER make life uncomfortable for a member of the government,or else!

    Btw,what does this position pay, I’ll speculate $225,000 per annum.

  3. Could it be that Trudeau is stacking the deck, so he has no opposition, or no one to hold him accountable for whatever he decides to do?

  4. the man is a dupe …no background checks, no accoutability , all in aid of his popularity that never was the object of our admiration …dumber than popular
