ATIP docs EXPOSE federal public servant “moonlighting” for Ontario Liberals: Here’s why it’s a “no-no”

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

We know how cozy the Liberals are with the public sector, so I wanted to find out just how deep that relationship runs.

Through emails obtained under the Access to Information Act, I found one senior federal government bureaucrat moonlighting as a riding association president for the Ontario Liberals.

In fact, he has even used his federal government email address to conduct Ontario Liberal Party business.

The man in question is Val Trudeau, who the government's database lists as the Director of Shared Services Canada. He's also the president of the Glengarry—Prescott—Russell provincial Liberal riding association.

He is not in a political position, but in one of public service. Yet, from his government email address, he was receiving partisan materials from the Ontario Liberals.

One email was a mass email sent from the Glengarry—Prescott—Russell MPP. Another was a notice from the Ontario Liberal Party president, directed to the party's riding association presidents.

I even found a chain of emails showing that he was helping organize an annual general meeting from that government email address. He sent one of them on a Tuesday at 2:12 pm.

Public servants are allowed to support political parties, but anything that utilizes government resources or happens on work time is a strict no-no.

WATCH MY FULL REPORT. I'll take you through the emails and lay out why this should concern Canadians.

Gosh what would Michael Mann and Sean Penson have to say about this?
Hey. Trudeau said his government would be different. He certainly was right on that note.

I guess because of her last name she figured she was bullet proof.

if only we could do the right thing.. she would be fired.. and then perhaps given a job more suited to her talent..say as an aide to sophie.
