Andrew Lawton: Trudeau Liberal corruption "hidden in plain sight"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Andrew Lawton, a fellow with the True North Initiative, joined me to talk more about the SNC-Lavalin scandal and the accusation that the PMO may have tried to interfere with the prosecution of the liberal-connected company.

Even the World Bank, an international financial institution that is used to operating in some of the most corrupt places in the world, stopped doing business with SNC-Lavelin, yet the Trudeau Liberals didn’t write the company off.

In the last two months, we’ve seen two examples of high-ranking Liberals implicated in some way to companies that have a lot of questionable things going on.

Watch as Andrew explains why you don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to think that question marks still remain around these stories.

The latest round of Liberal corruption stories shocks no one. Quebec is a distinct culture,and their business/political relationships have always been blatantly corrupt. The only time they have any problems with it is when one faction of the Liberal party is vying for power over another,as in the recent Montreal construction scandal,and Adscam.
A person would have to have obtained a Phd. in terminal naivety to believe Jody Wilson-Raybould was NOT pressured into making a friendly ruling on SNC-Lavalin.
Anyone familiar with the political culture of Quebec has known this forever, but most have too much to gain to speak out against it.
“I want less corruption or more of a chance to participate in it” is a bumper sticker I once saw that describes the culture of Quebec to perfection.

The Mohammad Trudeau Liberal government is synonymous with corruption, it’s what they do

Well, I think it has to do with the LNG Gasline proposal in BC.
It involves first nations. I think there is an LNG well proposal in the area she is in.
The Liberals okay’ed the LNG gasline from Dawson Creek to Kitamat.
Who would do the contruction of that pipeline?

Of SNC Lavalin wanted to give a cut to the Attorney General, THEY would offer it directly to her w no say to the PMO.
I think she could have whatever she wanted from those guys unless she wanted something for her district to get re-elected. I “think” Henry Reardon.

Why are Liberal women not leaving the Trudeau gov’t over this when they’re supposedly taking a stand?
Their ethics are the same?
Are they afraid of how corrupt Trudeau actually is?
Do they like their power more than his ethics?

Meanwhile, over on the Russian side of the Arctic, a Russian community is suffering from an invasion of Polar bears.
Remember that polar bears are now eating Canadian cuisine on our side of the Arctic.
Didn’t PM Butt’s precious WWF tell us their were hardly Polar bears left because climate change?

“If she can be that unethical in the Boushie case, then I see no reason to assume she’s suddenly on the side of the angels with regards to SNC-Lavelin. "
That is a point that should not be ignored. If there is anyway an RCMP investigation can be avoided it will be avoided, but wouldn’t that be something months before an election.

It makes me a little nervous though. When liberal politicians are cornered and need to take attention away from their misdeeds or even to emphasise a point before a bill is passed, false flags seem to occur and innocents usually get hurt. I’m sure its just coincidence though.

I wouldn’t be quite so quick to pin medals on Wilson-Raybould until we get more information on what actually happened. Call me cynical but how do we know she didn’t buck the deal that Trudeau wanted to give SNC-Lavelin because she wanted a bigger cut, rather than because she had moral objections to scratching their backs?

I might have given her the benefit of the doubt had it not been for her – and Trudeau’s – obviously massive displeasure over the verdict in the Boushie case where they both came right out and said that the “wrong” decision had been reached, i.e. the one that wasn’t politically correct. Anyone who actually believed in our legal system would have let that decision stand uncontested, not declared it wrong, nor would they have immediately set up a process to amend the whole system to make it difficult or impossible for such a decision to be made again. That approach did a great deal to discredit the current government in my opinion and make it look like they were going to declare the outcomes for every case before it was even heard. If she can be that unethical in the Boushie case, then I see no reason to assume she’s suddenly on the side of the angels with regards to SNC-Lavelin.

I’m with Brian Lilley on this one: get the police involved and investigate this and found out who really said and did what, then charge whoever is appropriate. As far as I’m concerned that can include Trudeau AND Wilson-Raybould – and the whole Liberal Cabinet – if the evidence supports the charge.

“Ron… I don’t think that’s to discuss charges, oh no.. I think that’s to discuss how to dismiss the charges while still keeping face and not losing popularity in the scandal.. "

Charred, that very well may be true. Trudeau and Scheer aren’t fit to govern.

“…but it will depend on whether or not he can get out there more. He has to become more visible.”

Liza, before 2015 the media was already biased. Since Trudeau took over he is the only visible one because the media in Canada have been paid off and corrupted, outside of ‘The Rebel’ and a few independents.
How can Bernier become more visible if no one talks about him? Continued corruption by the Libs and Cons should drive any sane person into searching for an alternative. But
I am not sure how many Canadians are waking up to really know what is going on with the depth of corruption in Ottawa. Canadians have become too cozy in their complacency.
If you tell your family friends and neighbours about what is going on, the word will spread.

what do you mean “in place of “It’s OK to be White” posters” ?
commented 2019-02-10 19:49:50 -0500
what campus Lois?
commented 2019-02-10 19:42:27 -0500


That’s the new poster circulating around campus in place of “It’s OK to be White” posters that have been torn down! I heard they are also being placed on top of posters promoting LGBTQ2S on the campus hallways.

I went to my car parked on campus parking and on the windshield was a folded piece of paper under the wiper. I unfolded it and all that was on the plain, white sheet of paper was,“GOOGLE ISLAMIC DEATH SEX”.

Does anybody know what this is all about?

There may be a small chance that Junior doesn’t even make it to the next election if he gets ratted out.

Those Dirty Liberals!!!

Both the liberals and the cpc have dirty hands in this incident. Scheer is trying to pretend otherwise.

Peter concerning squeaking in as opposition, Bernier deserves it, but it will depend on whether or not he can get out there more. He has to become more visible. His ‘team’ needs to get on it. Bernier is the only competent and the only one with any integrity in this race. The ‘progs’ are slandering the PPC as the white supremacist party, which is stupid, considering the diversity in the party, but the left definitely have their claws out for Bernier. If Scheer blows this he will go down as the guy who couldn’t even beat that loser Trudeau. I don’t trust Scheer, and that’s nobody’s fault but his own.

The corruption of the Liberal party will make little difference to the Liberal voters this coming election. The Liberal party has been corrupt for many decades now and they still keep getting elected.

With Andrew Sheer being a “Liberal Lite”, the on-the-fence Liberals will probably just vote for the Liberal party again because why would they bother voting for a Liberal Lite party when they can just vote for the real, the original, the true corruption, the Liberal party of Canada.

Maybe Maxime Bernier can wedge his PPC into being the official opposition.

What was Andrew Scheer doing meeting with members of SNC-Lavelin when they are under criminal investigation? Was he is inquiring as to all the money that SNC has given to finance the conservatives that will no longer be available to finance the upcoming election campaign? The cartels in Canada are corrupt and anti-Canadian and need to be done away with. Ezra, you need to further investigate who is putting coffers into not only the Liberal but the Conservative purses.

PM Butts: Honestly Justin, I don’t know what we can do to make this SNC scandal any worse.
Dauphin: Hold my joint.
