In Question Period, Andrew Scheer continues to demand that Justin Trudeau repay the cost of his trip to the Aga Khan’s private island.
Under our corrupt system, those in power are allowed to break all the rules and get away with no punishment at all.
In Justin Trudeau’s case, he was found to have violated federal ethics rules with his trip to the Aga Khan’s private island.
Yet – even though the Ethics Commissioner ruled against him – he wasn’t punished.
He didn’t even get a fine.
That lack of punishment is despite the fact that tons of taxpayers money was spent on the trip – money which should never have been spent on the trip in the first place.
Now, the Conservatives are fighting to get Trudeau to pay back the $200K owed to taxpayers.
Andrew Scheer has been relentless during Question Period, repeatedly demanded that Trudeau – who can easily afford it – pays the money back, and made that demand again today:

Unsurprisngly, Trudeau has repeatedly refused to pay back the money.
Instead, he has pathetically tried to play the victim, accusing the Conservatives of launching “personal attacks,” – even though all they’re saying is the truth.
Clearly, Trudeau sees himself as entitled to taxpayer money, and has contempt for the Canadian people who created that money in the first place.
He thinks we work for him, rather than the other way around.
His arrogance must be defeated in 2019, or he will get even more detached and entitled than he is today.
