WATCH: Trudeau Asked Why Cannabis Company Founded By Former Liberal CFO Is Getting Hundreds Of Millions In Secret Cayman Islands ‘Investment’

Trudeau claims he’s changing marijuana laws to reduce the influence of organized crime, so why is he dodging questions about shady offshore donations?

In Question Period, Conservative Deputy Leader Lisa Raitt asked Justin Trudeau about some shady occurrences.

It turns out that a Quebec cannabis company founded by the former Chief Financial Officer of the Liberal Party has received over $200 million in anonymous ‘investments’ from a company in the Cayman Islands.

The company’s investors are kept secret.

As Lisa Raitt said, “Canadians deserve to have the assurance that there’s no organized crime element within these secret investors.”

While trying to answer, Trudeau seemed thrown totally off-guard and stumbled badly.

Watch the exchange below:

Trudeau stumbled even more than usual – and that’s saying something.

Then, he totally avoided answering the real question, which Lisa Raitt called out by noting that Trudeau was just reciting his tired and empty talking points.

How can Canadians have any trust in the changes to the justice system surrounding marijuana when Trudeau can’t – and won’t – even answer the most basic questions?

If the new system ends up benefiting anonymous offshore donors and those with political ties, then it will be just another example of Trudeau and the elites rigging the system against the rest of us for their own benefit.

Wow?? Is this offshore Canadian tax dollars being moved back to make more money for the off shore account, I wonder. Lisa Raitt has done some very good investigating and I hope she will continue and that we will actually hear about it.

BINGO. I’m glad I’m not the only one who see this scam. These investments should never be anonymous

“International Narcotics Control Strategy Report”

US rates Canada once again as a “major money laundering country” in annual drug report
By Christine Duhaime | March 12th, 2017A

“major money laundering country” is one whose banks and financial institutions allow financial transactions involving significant amounts of proceeds of crime. For several years in a row, Canada has been identified as such (see our other annual reviews here (2016), here (2014), here (2013) and here (2012)).

Canada looks like it could be a major producer of cannabis for the world market so it would not be surprising if there are foreign interests involved. Lots of profit when it sells for ten bucks a gram retail.

Kids will always be able to get a hold of it regardless whether there is a legal and/or black market. Education on the risks is key. Lots of info already out there that might be of interest to parents.

wow pot is not a gateway drug, prescription drugs are and they were made to be, so people keep wanting them you should do some research

Its second in the line of tobacco as the gateway, but of course its a gateway drug. But the stoners like to ignore the reports that many heroin and crack addicts attempting to get straight tell their story about their problems starting with marijuana but being offered or needing something more mind altering.

As someone who has been an athlete and a sport official in the past I find that he does not answer the question. Frankly I wonder, why does the government not legislate full disclosure of investors, if they have not done so? And at the same time I would call for drug testing of all MP’s, Cabinet Ministers, Senators and Deputy ministers. after all who is the bigger threat, an official in government at a senior level who uses drugs or an athlete?

Good points. Full disclosure should be made.

Foreign Liberal criminals are laundering their drug money and buying Canadian companies? Are they Communist Chinese or are they Mexican cartels? Who knows. Both are friends of Trudeau.

It doesn’t matter what you ask him,,,all you ever get is the same song and dance he always does, but he never answers the question. He just spews out what ever comes into his tiny brain figuring that it sounds like an answer and it is an answer,,,just not an answer to the question he was asked. Chances are that he is one of the silent investors, probably under a different name.

Well done Lisa Rait.
Trudeau is a liar and a fraud.
What a joke to think that legalization will stop drug crime. He dang well knows it’s going to boost their business and put it directly in the hands of children. A 12 year old will be able to carry 5 g of marijuana knowing there will be absolutely no consequence.
I can’t wait until this creep is gone…as well as the rest of the Liberal party.

We are, uh, moving umm, forward, eliminating the money going to Liber- organized crime and making sure it goes into the coffers of the Liberal Fundraisers, who we hope will be able to buy us votes in the next election.

Thank you, Hon Lisa Raitt. Please continue to dig deeper. Prime Minister Trudeau has been found guilty of breaking of the conflict of interest law. https://globalnews.ca/video/3928374/prime-minister-trudeau-sorry-for-violating-ethics-conflict-laws Is he also connected with the organized crime? Surely, Canadians want to know!

Here’s half your problem with marijuana legalization. It’s being used to cover up the scandal for the opioid crises that was non other than made in China. An entire generation has been made dependent on the pharmaceuticals that were prescribed legally by our public health system. Namely OxyContin, Oxycodone, after the medical system has deemed these controlled substances highly addictive and detrimental to health. A highly illegal Fentanyl trade started with the Chinese black market. Further used in money laundering schemes driving Canadian real estate to artificially high levels. Wake up Canada, this is erasing the middle class to highly… Read more »
