Ted Malloch: O Canada! PM Trudeau Caught in Devastating Corruption Scandal
Guest post by Ted Malloch author of Davos, Aspen and Yale
Sleepy Canada is up to its snowdrift in scandal.
Yes, arrogant, hypocrite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a hyper-liberal, arch globalist, and Trump nemesis, is facing repeated demands that he resign.
If he won’t — his Liberal government may fall or certainly be defeated in the upcoming federal elections later this fall.
What’s up in the frozen northern tundra?
Maybe it is time to call in Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, Royal Mounties of television fame?
Trudeau now regrets what he calls, “ the erosion of trust.”
He caused it himself.
He has put at risk the entire Liberal establishment, his Government, and his very Office.
It is spelled: corruption.
It appears that the former Minister of Justice and Attorney General was pressured to help a crooked Quebec construction company settle a criminal case and avoid prosecution over allegations that it bribed officials in Libya for large government contracts.
How much, you ask?
Fifty million dollars.
The AG (Jody Wilson-Raybould) faced veiled threats and pressures from Trudeau to fix the deal.
That would mean doing injustice—not exactly her job title.
Trudeau denied the allegations.
But it has all backfired and come tumbling back on him.
It has caused a national outrage — from St. Johns, Newfoundland straight across the country all the way to British Columbia.
The AG has resigned from the cabinet, and now so have others.
The fresh-faced, baby Trudeau (his father, Pierre was PM from 1968-78 and 1980-84) is now the scorn of the people.
His troubled image plasters all the news outlets 24/7.
It is not going well.
He can’t find any sympathy.
Remember his trip to India a year ago was widely mocked and his negotiation with Trump over trade was an embarrassment and a failure.
His government is in disgrace and his political life, likely OVER.
Can you hear the Canadian national anthem?
Somebody better be “standing on guard for thee…”
