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.
