He said he did nothing wrong. He said the story was ‘false.’ He said he ‘disagreed’ with Jody Wilson-Raybould. So, how can he now ‘apologize’ without confirming that he’s been lying to Canadians this entire time.
There are reports that Justin Trudeau is talking to his advisers about issuing a statement of ‘contrition.’
Here’s what the CBC report said:
“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is holding high-level discussions today to plot next steps in the ongoing SNC-Lavalin controversy — steps which may include Trudeau making some display of contrition over how officials in his office conducted themselves.
A senior government official said one of the options being discussed is for Trudeau to “show some ownership over the actions of his staff and officials” in their dealings with his former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould.”
Here’s the big problem with that:
Justin Trudeau and his cronies started off by saying this whole story was false. Then they said there was no actual problem since Jody Wilson-Raybould was in cabinet. Then she left cabinet. Then they said she couldn’t speak. Then they let her talk about some stuff but not all of it, and she totally contradicted what Trudeau had claimed. Then they said it was just her ‘opinion.’ Then Jane Philpott resigned.
This has escalated from Trudeau saying the story was false, to now having his government in chaos because of it.
So, how can he issue a statement of contrition?
How can he ‘take responsibility’ for his staff when he claimed his staff did nothing wrong and said the story was fake?
If he issues a statement of ‘contrition’ now, then he’s admitting that he was lying the entire time. And if he was willing to lie to Canadians for three weeks, then nobody can trust anything he says. After all, Jane Philpott doesn’t even trust him, and she’s been working within the cabinet itself.
This is an absolute disgrace, and Trudeau’s words are nothing more than empty and deceptive garbage.
