The ethics commission’s report in August condemned the Trudeau government for its interference in the justice system – and rightfully so!
However, Andrew Scheer’s reaction on behalf of the conservative opposition, and his condemnation of Justin Trudeau, is amusing at least and ironic at best. Scheer might be reminded that the former Harper government was cited for numerous documented instances of corruption. Independent researchers claim that party leader Stephen Harper committed dozens of instances of serial abuses of power ranging from scams, smears and outright bullying of public officials.
As we enter the “mud-slinging” fray leading up to the October election, our citizens will be bombarded with an array of accusations, allegations, and denouncements – many of which will be groundless and frivolous, and some will be malicious and false. Few will be credible.
As electors, our task will be to sort through the mess, separate the wheat from the chaff – and make an informed decision as we decide in which box to place the “X.”
Good luck with that!
