Even those in the system know how rigged it is.
While being questioned by MPs (for a laughably short amount of time), the new Trudeau government ethics commissioner pick admitted that the Ethics Commissioner role is almost powerless.
Conservative MP Peter Kent pointed to comments made by current Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson, noting that she said “naming and shaming” is all the Ethics Commissioner can really do.
That’s because the fines are laughably weak ($200), and government pick Mario Dion agreed with that description of the role as being without almost any influence.
He compared it to $500 fines doled out to hockey players making millions of dollars, which is a way of saying it has zero deterrence effect.
When even those deep within the system admit that it’s basically rigged, we know things have gotten very bad.
Watch Dion’s comments in the video below:
Clearly, the system is rigged and corrupt, and those in power don’t even feel the need to hide it.
