Canada's civil service so partisan, unprofessional, "even Hillary Clinton's staff couldn't believe it"

For nine years, Canada had a strong, democracy-oriented foreign policy -- that our professional diplomats just hated.

For nine years, Canada has had a proud, strong, democracy-oriented foreign policy -- that our professional diplomats just hated.

They hated that Harper sided with Israel; that he was so supportive of Ukraine; that while we increased trade with China, he still criticized them for their civil rights.

Canada’s civil servants were not non-partisan. I mean, remember this super-gross scene when Justin Trudeau showed up at the foreign affairs office?

Well, they're so unprofessional that even foreign countries noticed.

Here's an e-mail sent to former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by Tom Adams, a U.S. diplomat:

“I was a little astonished at how openly the career folks at the foreign and assistance ministries disliked their new political masters (...) In my many years here I have never seen such open disloyalty with a change of administrations.”

The left talked about how Harper was hurting Canada’s reputation abroad, but in reality, they were the ones humiliating Canada.

I do not think John Baird should be blamed for the mistrust and disdain shown him. Baird was trying his best, but he got caught up with a bad lot.

That’s PSAC and PIPS at their best. Harper tried to make their bosses accountable and now Trudeau just opened the cookie jar again. Typical Liberal tactics

OH Just realized the emails are from 2012. I didn’t get this from Ezra’s wording.

“……..disliked their new political masters” So, they don’t like the Liberals? Isn’t this the opposite of what you said about JT? Am I missing something here?

Mr. Harper and his government fought an uphill battle all the years they were in office because they had to contend with a “stab-you-in-the-back” civil service! Many of these “servants” had no sense of loyalty to their government! It should be mandatory that when a government changes hands. so does the civil service!

It’s those same ‘embedded Liberals’ in Canada’s Civil Service (Public Service) that murdered SNN

Was it the disloyalty of the civil servants that made John Baird look so blotto in the picture above?
Come on, the guy did his best for nine years. Give him a break.

This is years and years of political nepotism going unchallenged. The scene where Justin walked into the room and everyone cheered made me think we are not that far from being communist. The liberals own the schools, the Judicial system, the unions, the media and civil servants. Fait accompli.

Deborah, so true. The leader of you and yours …“our” leader as you said is Harper. Pompous ass is putting it nicely … good thing his right out of the picture now. He just lip service for Calgary Southwest … idiots.
commented 2015-12-02 10:24:14 -0500
All those union clowns that were cheering for the defeat of PM Harper, and elected this empty headed puppet, are going to be regretting it one day. Eventually all those terrorists that are being planted here, are going to come for you and your families too. Where will that pompous ass called our leader be then? I’ll bet that he will be hiding in a closet, behind the women! Canada has elected a man in skirts at the helm, not a real man, or real Canadian, in my opinion!

The welcome for Trudeau and Dion proves that the civil service were on the side of the Lie-berals from the start. It is a wonder the Conservatives got any ideas passed. In future the civil service can expect wholesale layoffs when a government changes
commented 2015-12-02 08:40:27 -0500
Peter Toth, that’s not happening! Trudeau’s Liberals will get re-elected at least once, probably twice!
commented 2015-12-02 08:04:14 -0500
Drew. Yup. The Rebel would have more to publish if security hadn’t chased the Rebel reporters out of the dumpster.
commented 2015-12-02 02:32:17 -0500
I love all the progressives who hated the bailouts by the US, they will never admit their union pensions were bailed out in by that action as well.
commented 2015-12-02 02:31:22 -0500
Don Cloud Hillary did not clean her dumpster good enough i guess? Too arrogant to know that these can be restored. Even the libs know how to delete emails in mass quantities here and they are simple minded fools.
commented 2015-12-02 01:14:05 -0500
I agree Tony – all Con’s are too soft nowadays.
commented 2015-12-02 01:12:01 -0500
It used to be that when you hired civil servants, there was an unwritten rule, that you only hire A-political folks. It was Trudeau senior that changed all that, stacking the civil service with Lefty’s, so’s he could still influence the country after leaving office. Typical Lefty, no morals, no scruples, no nothing, just pure disgust. But then, what would you expect, they use a different part of the brain than the rest of us – and it’s not the part with a conscience!!
commented 2015-12-01 23:24:07 -0500
Amazing what you can find in Hillary’s dumpster …
commented 2015-12-01 22:48:14 -0500
In 4 years, when the Conservatives take back Canada, pink slips must be handed out the very next day! Nothing else would be acceptable. The rot runs deep, and it’s time to clean it out!
commented 2015-12-01 22:29:23 -0500
Civil Servants are nothing more than trained Dog droppings. They live in a world of Doggy Bag.

Off Topic. I have just figured out why Trudeau needs two Nanny’s, one of them is for him.

That’s why I call them sniveling serpents. :-p

For all the Clinton emails go here: https://foia.state.gov/Search/Results.aspx?collection=Clinton_Email
The email Ezra refers to can be found by doing a search for “CIDA”.

Global News has more, including discussion of Omar Khadr’s release from Gitmo to Canadian custody:
“There was delight in Clinton’s office over news that Omar Khadr was being released from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and repatriated to a prison in his home country. … After spending the last 10 years on GTMO, at least this young man finally has another chance. … the State Department lawyer, wrote of Khadr’s transfer: “Gtmo is 1 down!! Yayy!” " [Barf!]
“Canada’s then-Conservative government was far less enthusiastic about approving Khadr’s return, which was delayed amid sniping between Canada and the U.S.”

Harper was soft. He didn’t reform the bureaucracy or sell CBC.

Time to pull a Regan – fire them all and let folks line up for the newly emptied positions.
commented 2015-12-01 20:15:03 -0500
If this was true, I didn’t see it… maybe it was happening, I didn’t see it.
I remember when John Baird pushed money out the door for the provinces during the recession, and I remember them complimenting the public service for all their hard work. That it was a team effort…

There are partisans in the Public service, that has to be. And in the media for that matter.

I really am appalled at how this country had changed in the last 10 to 15 years. I have been watching and voting since I was 18 back in 1968. and the Liberals and the NDP were never this nasty and disgusting . Neither were the citizens of this country. I use to travel to Europe and wear a Canadian lapel pin or sport a shirt with a Canadian maple leaf and was proud to do so. My last trip 4 years ago I could not bring myself to . This is not my Canada I grew up in.Sad

Fire. Them. All.

It’s a phrase that appears to be more and more applicable the farther one looks.
commented 2015-12-01 19:52:44 -0500
what would you expect from a party that started the absolute hatred of anything Conservative. And then for 9 years spewed out lies and and comparisons of Mr.Harper to Nazi’s and Fascists. This is about what I expected from the mentality of the left who think it’s their absolute right to rule. Watch how they will begin the same hatred for Miss Ambrose also.

That squalid rat’s nest, the Canadian Civil Service, needs to be cleaned out.

@ M P – “Hmmm. So Ezra is referencing an email released today that was from 2012. Just watch the video again and stop it to read what it actually says. What should we make of that???”

I understand what you are implying, but you are missing one very important concept, the civil servants would not been seen by anyone as partisan if they were just doing what the Conservative government at the time was ordering them to do. The civil servants were seen as partisan because they were pushing their Liberal agenda while under the authority of a legally elected Conservative government. That is what made them be partisan.
