  7. 7. JUSTIN TRUDEAU OPEN AND TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT 2015 Election Campaign • Trudeau has failed on access to information - https://ipolitics.ca/2018/03/28/trust-me-trudeau-has-forgotten- what-got-him-elected/ “If that’s the test, the Liberals have flunked, big time. After three years in power, openness has given way to opacity. Just this week, it took a grilling by the opposition to get the Prime Minister to admit that he received an overnight bag from the Aga Khan as a gift during his now- infamous vacation on Bell Island. Trudeau hadn’t disclosed the gift because it was deemed “unacceptable” by the Ethics Commissioner, and thus did not have to be publicly disclosed due to the wording of the Conflict of Interest Act, which only requires the disclosure of “acceptable” gifts over the amount of $200, other than those from a relative or friend. Trudeau still refuses to reveal the value of the gift or what happened to it, and while it might appear petty to insist on knowing whether the bag was Walmart or Vuitton, that’s what you get when you win power over promises to “do things differently” from your secretive predecessors.”

FISCAL MONITOR Source - https://www.fin.gc.ca/pub/fm-rf-index-eng.asp • The fiscal monitor gives insight to how the Government Canada on the government taxation and spending cycles March 2018 – Fiscal Monitor April 2018 – Fiscal Monitor As of April 2018 the Liberals no longer report direct program spending by key departments
  11. 11. ETHICAL VIOLATIONS / LIBERALS • Trudeau never truly accepted the ruling from the ethics commissioner. • Trudeau was also convicted of another ethical violations (gift) - https://globalnews.ca/news/3930242/commentary- the-real-scandal-is-how-justin-trudeaus-four-ethics- violations-carry-no-punishment/ • Morneau and the Villa - https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/bill- morneau-pays-the-price-for-french-villa-omission- with-200-fine-from-ethics-commissioner • Leblanc and the Fishing Contract - https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article- dominic-leblanc-found-in-conflict-of-interest-for- awarding-clam/ No where in Canadian history has either PM or Minister of Finance ever been convicted of ethical issues
  12. 12. LAVAGATE • New Minister of Justice refuses to open up the Justice Committee to debating the Lavalin case - https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/ag-sees-no- justification-for-probe-of-alleged-pmo-interference-in- snc-lavalin-case-1.4289301 • Liberals again are hiding information for their own reasons. • Failing to open up the what happen with PMO and Jody Wilson-Raybould means the Liberals are neither transparent nor open when it comes to information.
  13. 13. RCMP AND LAVALIN • Liberals have restricted RCMP investigation due to cabinet confidentiality - https://www.thepostmillennial.com/ breaking-liberal-government-blocks- rcmp-on-snc-lavalin-inquiry/

The Liberals have scaled back performance audits. • Liberals are holding audits on sustainable areas despite trying to push their green agenda
  16. 16. FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND POLICIES Trudeau said Canada is back when it comes Foreign Policies Globe is so far off! @JustinTrudeau has been failure on Foreign Policy. @stephenharper was very solid. I am suspecting that Globe is only looking at the UN angle rather than country by country relationship!

  17. 17. COLTEN BOUSHIE TRIAL • Dangerous changes to the Criminal Code - https://www.thepostmillennial.com/canada-is-using-online- outrage-to-make-dangerous-changes-to-the-criminal-code/ “But the public is being misled. Wilson-Raybould later tempered her Twitter pronouncement by saying she wasn’t talking about any specific case, but the message was clear: she would “fix” the law so future Gerald Stanleys would be convicted. The solution was Bill C-75, which has now passed third reading in parliament. Joseph Neuberger, a Canadian criminal lawyer and legal expert warns that “this was a knee jerk reaction to one high profile case that makes for very bad law and can lead to increased time for jury trials and harms fairness for accused individuals.” ”
  18. 18. TERI-LYNNE MCCLINTIC It was the liberals that change the mandate for Corrections Canada https://www.canada.ca/en/public-safety- canada/news/2018/09/mandate-letter- for-the-commissioner-of-the- correctional-service-of-canada-issued-by- minister-goodale.html or Goodale’s bad practices statement - https://globalnews.ca/news/4497189/ro b-breakenridge-liberals-tone-deaf- mcclintic-case/ Rodney Stafford was never properly informed of the transferred https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/terri-lynne- mcclintic-transferred-out-of-healing-lodge-rodney-stafford- 1.4168632
  21. 21. MARK NORMAN TRIAL • There is no disclosure of the settlement made to Mark Norman - https://www.thepostmillennial.com/conservative-senator-rips-trudeau-over-secret-mark- norman-settlement/ “What you don’t do, is you don’t is put your finger and try to weigh in on the scales of justice,” Henein said of politics that went all the way to the top. “And I know Canadians are paying close attention.”

  23. 23. CARBON TAX MISINFORMATION • https://globalnews.ca/news/4586374/carbon-tax-rebate-what-you-need-to-know/ • • How so? The carbon tax would cost people an extra $1,100 to 1,800 through higher costs. The tax rebate would be lucky to cover 10% of the cost. Liberals are lying as they normally do because they do not consider the complete past through of the carbon to consumer goods, household expenses, etc. https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/the-art-of-taxing-pollution-canada-april- 2019 • • It is the liberals that are dishonest as they released their carbon pricing economic impact, why? https://capforcanada.com/canadian-households-to-pay-1100-per- year-in-carbon- tax/?fbclid=IwAR02rsYH4ht9Gw3ESA0MsI34UeLjjnZ6sFW40leAoqVLr0FqY56wFuJgp Jc or https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/the-art-of-taxing-pollution-canada- april-2019 • Or https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/the-art-of-taxing-pollution-canada- april-2019

OPEN / TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT - TRUDEAU Source - https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/goldstein-if-trudeaus-re-elected-what-abuse-of-power-comes-next By a government that ignored some of the most fundamental precepts of the rule of law, including prosecutorial independence and the obligation to disclose, in a timely fashion, relevant information sought by the accused in a criminal trial. Source – Toronto Sun – May 12, 2019 I am sorry, but there is a pattern with @JustinTrudeau that is he feels that laws do not apply to him.

  28. 28. BLOG #2 – OPEN AND TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT @justintrudeau never seems to grasp either accountability or open govt. People should look at Trudeau ethical issues as well as how cases like Lavalin and Norman were handled by the PMO @andrewscheer understands accountability and transparency as he served under Harper. https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/2019-election-open-and-transparent-government-july-2019 Return of Butts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPiW4v1rKKA Who would you trust more?
  29. 29. BLOG #3 – ETHICS / LAVALIN • Birds of a feather flock together. @JustinTrudeau is no role model either for his MPs or Canadians as he has proven numerous times that honesty, integrity, openness and accountability does not apply to him. • https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/2019-election-open-and-transparent-government-canada-august-2019 • Liberals under Trudeau will never be about what is best for Canada, but what is best for their agenda. All you must do is look at what happen at the ethics committee meeting on August 21, 2019: • @stevenmackinnon nice arrogant approach at the ethics committee. I hate to say it you are pure example why people need to vote out your party. The DPA does not include jobs! • @PierrePoilievre • Steve does not seem to look at GDP details. • https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/2019-election-gdp-and-growing-the-economy-canada-may-2019 . Lavalin also said no jobs were at stake https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/snc-lavalin-job-losses-1.5071833 • https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/justin-trudeau-scorecard-2015-to-2019-august-2019 @andrewscheer if you want to sway voters then I suggest instead of attacking repeatedly the Lavalin affair that you just show how you would be more open and transparent: • More performance audits • Ethics commissioner office goes into independent group • Attorney General is separated into a separate department • Anyone convicted of any ethics violation will be kick out of your party
  30. 30. CHANGES TO STATS CANADA REPORTS • Stats Canada reports are good reports to use along other reports as part of assessing both government policies as well as the performance of the economy. • Liberals used to include graphs with many of their reports, but that seems to have gone out the window. Individuals can do their own graph, but that would require work • Liberals seem to be looking at more ways to keep information from view.
  31. 31. ANITA VANDENBELD Source - https://globalnews.ca/news/5479996/anita-vandenbeld-ottawa-guilty-ethics-code/ An Ottawa member of Parliament violated conflict-of-interest rules when she asked voters to elect her husband to Ottawa city council last year, says Canada’s ethics watchdog. • Anita is on the ethics committee with her own violation. Anita should have been replaced by another MP was not • Anita voted against having the ethics commissioner testified at emergency hearing on the Lavalin / Trudeau ethical conviction - https://globalnews.ca/news/5792866/andrew-scheer-ethics-committee-snc-lavalin/ “Liberals Steve MacKinnon, Mona Fortier, Michel Picard, Frank Baylis and Anita Vandenbeld — who was herself found last month by Dion to have broken federal ethics rules — voted against the motion to invite the watchdog. Liberal Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, Conservatives Lisa Raitt and Peter Kent, and the NDP’s Charlie Angus supported the motion.”
  32. 32. AMAZON FIRES • Trudeau promises $16M to fight Amazon fires • No where has Trudeau said he will ask for oversight and performance audit to ensure the money is spent on sustainable forestry practices • G7 plans to support $20M, but Canada for its own reason which are politically motivated is providing an additional funding of $16M • Corruption is very strong inside and outside of government https://www.americasquarterly.org/content/heres-how-exit-latin-americas- maze-corruption • Fires / Forest - https://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/world/amazon-rainforest-fires-the-truth-behind-the-record-breaking-headlines/ar- AAG8KeS
  33. 33.

Trudeau was too busy doing his UN Seat tour - https://globalnews.ca/news/6596527/trudeau-security-council-africa/
  35. 35. COVID19 AND DR TAM I have no doubt Ms Tam is very bright as I review his past positions. My concerns are that Tam likely is being gag and/or control by Trudeau in terms of statements and policies. Background: It appears that Dr Theresa Tam led the leadership team on SARS. If so, then why did MS Tam not review the playbook for SARS – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK92465/ It seems like Ms. Tam has been relegated to say what PMO tell her to say or do in terms of policies and statements? https://edmontonjournal.com/news/politics/the-road-to-canadas-covid-19-outbreak-pt-2-timeline-of-federal-government- failure-at-border-to-slow-the-virus-2/. It is Trudeau team that controls the message of the public sector. Bio/Tam: https://www.who.int/about/who_reform/emergency-capacities/oversight-committee/theresa-tam/en/ @telfordk @JustinTrudeau seem to control what is said or done by public officials. I thought Trudeau said he would be more open and transparent including releasing the gag order for people to speak freely?
