UPDATE: Feds respond to Rebel's exposure of “political impartiality in public service” — but will they act?

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator
 

Days after I exposed a senior bureaucrat who was using his government email address and work time to organize events for the Ontario Liberal Party, Shared Services Canada has said that it is "aware of the situation and determining what actions will be taken."

A statement from the department wouldn't say what actions are facing Val Trudeau, who, in addition to being the director of Shared Services Canada is also an Ontario Liberal Party riding association president.

It did, however, point to some of the rules and guidelines to which public servants must adhere.

One of those is the Values and Ethics Code for the Public Sector, which says public servants must take "all possible steps to prevent and resolve any real, apparent or potential conflicts of interest between their official responsibilities and their private affairs in favour of the public interest."

Like, for example, using a personal email address instead of a canada.ca email address for partisan activity.

Members of the civil service are allowed to be partisan, but not at work and not with work resources.

I'm not going to let this go, and I have others that I'm working to expose as I write this, so stay tuned.

I’m so tired of all the corruption. It’s so common it’s expected. Keep on it. Exposure is what’s needed.

If the Conservatives were in government and did this the media would be fuming and frothing all over the place. What are they doing now? Absolutely nothing, except maybe gathering for a drink and everybody looking around with that knowing little smirk on their face. Pay back will not be kind to these despicable people who call themselves journalists.

THEY WILL BE SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE ONCE THEY READ JERRY BOYDALL’S COMMENT

LISTEN UP, CANADA… JERRY BOYDALL HAS THE ANSWER

Are you tired of the accusations of being racist against Muslims?

Canada, let’s show them that we aren’t racist at all!

It’s time for our men to start mating with the Muslim women.

Just think…if we Canadian men start “getting jiggy” with the Muslimas then they will start popping out Christian babies for us! As you know, the Muslims are against abortion. Besides, haven’t we heard that our population needs to be increased to support our aging population?

Now you have the answer. I can’t believe that nobody has though of this before!

Men, it’s time for YOU to do YOUR part for Canada.

Begin by getting fresh with the Muslim women. They can be pretty kinky in bed, so I hear!

GET YOU A MUSLIMA AND MATE WITH HER TO IMPROVE RACE RELATIONS AND THE INTEGRATION PROCESS!

The Liberals and CBC should have been promoting this from the beginning!

Have fun everybody, and be sure to share my idea with all your friends on Facebook! Simple share this link on Facebook and recommend that people scroll down and read JERRY BOYDALL’S COMMENT.

He doesnt have all the facts, let the government investigate.

Naming him was a low blow and not very nice. You could have kept his name out of the media

The same thing will happen to this malfeasant apparatchik as happened to their bosses who take bribes and misappropriate public funds for election candy – NOTHING1 As long as the OPP is investigating bureaucratic crime has a get-out-of-jail-free card.

As a former federal “public servant”, I was well aware of the clear, detailed “Conflict of Interest” legislation information that is given to all appointees prior to their accepting the appointment. They must sign that they have read every page and understand the terms. To appear and remain neutral I resigned from the political party of which I was a member to meet this requirement. It is not credible that Val Trudeau is not fully aware of her clear “conflict of interest” in this matter. She must resign from one of her positions. That is the law.
