I agree it's a "garbage" law, but the Trudeau Liberals have had 6 years to fix it. And chose not to.
Why would they, it serves both parties well. At least the Liberals don't have their names on the sham "law".
Trudeau himself has personally twice been found guilty of conflict of interest, Harper was found guilty of conflict of interest by the ethics commissioner exactly zero times..

so you are saying that because "at the time" Trudeau was exonerated legally
JWR's personal opinion does not equate to Trudeau being "exonerated legally".

However, the Ethics Commissioner DOES have the authority, following an investigation, to make a ruling on the matter. And when he did, he said Trudeau HAD violated the Conflict of Interest Act.

Harper was personally found guilty of Contempt of Parliment twice and JT zero times.

Why wouldn't it she was at the time the highest legal authority in Canada. Her opinion like all AGs and Justices Minister everywhere carries weight......just as much or more than the toothless and laughable Ethics Act. [icon_lol2.gif]

Harper didn't waste any opportunity to prorogue and then omnibus sprint bills through.

Trudeau will definitely be eventually found guilty of Contempt of Parliament for suing the Speaker of the House...
Here’s the official definition of Contempt of Parliament

Trudeau is clearly the most dishonourable and underhanded PM in Canadian history...

Eventually is not "has been found guilty" not once but twice :200:

Clearly it's the other guy that's the most dishonorable and underhanded PM in Canadian history.

Trying to defend Trudeau by saying Harper did similar makes no sense. Because many of the things we dislike about Trudeau, are the exact same reasons we gave Harper the boot.

Who said anything about disliking Trudeau? According to the polls, Canadian voters like him just fine. In fact, the older voters who used to be counted on into the hip pockets of the CPC are migrating en mass to JT and the Libs. I'm thinking that demographic really appreciates JT's leadership during the Covid crisis and the JWR mess had no real meaning for them. All signs point to a historic landslide majority victory for JT and the Libs come next election.

YOU may not dislike his unethical behaviour and disrespect for our Parliamentary process, but many of us want to see a return to a time when ethics were important, and Parliament respected.

The only poll that counts, is the one held on election day.

Voters are fickle, and what they say now is not necessarily indicative of who they’ll actually vote for when the time comes.

You appear to recognize that fact yourself, because why else would you be spending so much time on these forums trying to convince everybody to vote for your hero? If O’Toole really was no threat, you wouldn’t feel the need to post so many comments attempting to denigrate him.

Clearly you, and the Liberal Party, are more afraid of O’Toole’s Conservatives than you care to admit.

Yes Merry, great point! It's clear that some are definitely shaking in their boots, and resorting to desperate tactics, as the Liberal support continues to crumble, and rightly so.
Justin Trudeau- racist, elitist, liar. What a sick piece of garbage.
