"Liberals gonna Liberal": Campaign co-chair Dan Gagnier defiant after getting caught influence peddling

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Liberals have been in the political wilderness for almost a decade, and now they're within reach of 24 Sussex again.

But they aren't there yet, and that's what Dan Gagnier forgot.

The National Campaign Co-Chair sent out an email, advising TransCanada on how to lobby the next (Liberal) government.

Gagnier stepped down, but insists he didn't do anything wrong.

And the Liberals' spin doctor on this? Zita Astravas, who works for scandal-plagued Ontario Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, whose office is under police investigation!

Tariq Chaudary tried to bring a Muslim hate preacher into Canada.
Now he wants to be Liberal MP for Edmonton-Riverbend!
SIGN OUR PETITION telling Justin Trudeau to fire Chaudary.

Jimmy why no comment on a crooked politician? OH YEAH , hypocrisy!!
commented 2015-10-18 03:31:44 -0400
Jimmy Da Silva so how was Justin tied to this? see i can make assumptions like you and the left , say how is that Duffy trial going for you liars anyways? All i hear is you guys whining that there is some hidden agenda and whining about real evidence like usual. Of course the CBC has trucks and people galore for Duffy but nothing at all for Levin the child rapist PIG

The old Librano influence peddlers are trolling bait for fat patrons already – Our media is so corrupt this will be commonplace and defended by the usual ethically challenged journos.

Sorry George – I was checking your name, and was going to correct it, but hit post instead. He is the figurehead, but I call him the placeholder, because it sounds more fitting.

@ George Luck

The Conservatives going after the Liberals for their deeply rooted corruption would only look petty at this time. If the Liberals and the leftist media whine and bawl about “those mean Conservatives” over ads that simply show what Justin has actually said as “attack ads”, imagine what stink they would make if the Conservatives went on full out exposure of the deep rooted Liberal corruption at this time. So, having the “spheres” or not, it is unwise at this time, imho.

Peter, it is an important question that someone should pursue. The Liberal party is as crooked as . .. . . well, as it ever has been and someone needs to expose them for what they are. Sadly, it appears that the Conservatives lack the spheres to go after him on this issue, or the rule by a rich man’s son issue, or the cap and trade thing, or the deficit thing or the . . … . ..

George said, ““What did Trudeau know and when did he know it?””

It would have to be theRebel that would ask it, but you know the MSM won’t.

I think Jimmy Da Silva is probably a closet conservative and will probably vote for Harper.

Gagnier, was the second in command of the entire Liberal campaign. He was no stranger to Trudeau, in fact it is reasonable to assume that they were well acquainted. With this close relationship and with Trudeau in command of the campaign it is also reasonable to ask;
“What did Trudeau know and when did he know it?”
Because either Trudeau was in control and knew if not the content at least the intent of all communications at this level of campaign management, or the rumours are true and Trudeau is not in control at all and it is his handlers who are making the decisioins.

So which is it Justin? Did you know of and approve that communication or are you just a figure head and someone else is running the show? Canadians have a right to know.

Keith, poor Goat.

Donald, 671 you say! I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s 500 by election day. Thanks, trolls! You helped make it happen!
commented 2015-10-16 17:29:38 -0400
Yes, folks, just a foretaste of what is coming should Potboy and his band of far-left lunatics become government. But take some comfort here: their support is unreliable voters who will likely be toking up instead of voting on Monday.

The Rebel ranking today is 671

Asking a liberal to give advice on the economy is like asking Elmer Fudd advice on how to catch a wabbit….!
commented 2015-10-16 15:00:39 -0400
If Trudeau wins the Election, he should be presented with a Goat. One that can say OK, in Arabic. He is fond of animals, he must be, he has enough of them hanging around him.

Yep, here we fucking go again – liberal communist pigs steal, rape and murder and get caught and then explain is all away while the Canadian shitstream media runs the PR campaign to cover it all up.

Are Canadians really this fucking stupid to vote for a communist pig man child who is going to tax them all to hell and then laugh at them while doing it???

Dan Gagnier – that pot marked bent up nose of yours makes you look like a drunk, so being a lying pig is no problem, right asshole???
commented 2015-10-16 14:52:07 -0400
The one glowing difference between the Conservatives on one side, and the Liberals & NDP can be summed up in a few words. The Conservatives believe in you, while the other guys believe in themselves, Seriously. a ski instructor/ part-time drama teacher and a lawyer no better how to manage the ECONOMY than an ECONOMIST? Give your head a shake.
commented 2015-10-16 14:27:02 -0400
It also seems highly hypocritical of Trudeau to try and claim high moral ground when it appears they already knew about this for some time. Don Martin also mentioned Trudeau was asked if he vetted any other members on this issue and he avoided answering. It was a bad omen when we saw Trudeau start to parade all the ghosts of scandals past like he didn’t realize he should be embarrassed rather than proud of the accomplishments of his predecessors.
commented 2015-10-16 14:18:53 -0400
But the Liberal party explained everything in their statement by saying that it “blames the controversy on the Conservatives and their negative and mean-spirited politics.”
There, see, everything’s okay now.
commented 2015-10-16 14:17:19 -0400
The important thing to remember is – THEY (the Lieberals) ARE NOT IN YET! And they may never be in. The election is not until Monday the 19th. of October.
All the gloating that is being done by the MSM, the idiot trolls that come on here etc. are nothing but wishful thinking at this point. It ain’t over until the fat lady sings! and Lizzy the Lush May has not sung yet and may never will (no pun intended).
commented 2015-10-16 14:03:51 -0400
And the worst part, Ezra, is that the Liberals, their supporters, and the worst of all the main stream media will be okay with it and ignore this as a non-issue. Of course, we all know what would happen if a Conservative, thinking they would get back ion office, did the same thing, the MSM would roast alive that Conservative.
commented 2015-10-16 13:20:15 -0400
People planning to vote Liberal have had to whitewash a lot more than this indiscretion. Gagnier’s influence peddling, resignation and indignance are the least of our concerns.
