Bill Morneau renewed $8M government contract with his family firm

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday's show, Candice Malcolm joined me to discuss her exclusive report on an $8 million contract the Bank of Canada had with Morneau-Shepell, a firm founded by the father of Finance Minister Bill Morneau.

Morneau's popularity has plummeted since he announced plans to raise taxes on the farmers and small business owners he called tax cheats. His hypocrisy was put display when it was revealed Morneau failed to disclose his company's ownership of a French Villa to the ethics commissioner, but that wasn't the end of his troubles.

Morneau opted not to place his shares in Morneau-Shepell in a blind trust, despite his influence over legislation that boosted the value of the company's stock and brought them more clients.

It would be like President Trump signing contracts on behalf of the American government with a Trump casino!

As the folks in Hogan’s heroes would say “interesting, very interesting…”

Mark, you’re welcome.

Tammie thanks I missed that one Bill .

So they have a full size poster cop at the Canadian Tire exit door reminding the customer that shoplifting is a crime. Go to jail for lifting a loaf of bread while the Liberals free us of our hard in tax dollar to the tune of billions but maintain their innocence and of course their integrity and ethical virtues.
The air is filled with the smell of bananas in Ottawa.

Same arrogance as 20 years ago under Jean Createn & Paul Moron
I have always contended that the Liberal Party is the largest criminal organization in Canada

Claw back on diabetes tax break for type one. This government continues to go after regular people and small business. All the while liebral elites who would notice even $100.00 of their own money missing cant remember millions they have.
Do you think the POS government will spend the surplus to pay down the debt. More refugees to jump the ques to be first in line. they will be fast tracked to citizen ship just watched. More uneducated useless welfare bums. All the while lines for medical, housing, seniors,veterans, disabled grow longer.

The media in Canada is wishing this Liebreal was a Conservative.
commented 2017-10-23 09:56:16 -0400
Why is any sane person surprised?

This is what the Liebreal Party stands for. The Lieberals think the country’s coffers is their personal piggy bank and when it’s running low on cash just tax the hardworking Canadians. The Canadian “sheeple” always cave to the crooked Lieberal government. It’s time to fight back.!!!!!

They don’t forget their wealth. They don’t forget their investments. They don’t forget the companies they own.
But when it comes to remembering the people they are supposed to represent, the all suffer from amnesia.
Besides, they could care less about the country or the citizens of the country.
What qualifies most of these baboons for the positions they hold in the government?
Really, do you need any qualifications to manage any ministry?
I guess not when you get a bouncer running the government.

This is definitely not your “Grandfather’s Canada” that we are living in now…
commented 2017-10-23 02:53:15 -0400
Given that, I wonder how many Canadians are just now starting to get an uneasy and early “taste” of what it’s like to live in a country where the ruling government is obviously corrupt, and has the Press in on their game… Hey people!.. Starting to feel a bit like Venezuela or Brazil or Mexico, or even Russia maybe?… That crooked govt/press combo should have been a flashing lighthouse in recent years, given what has now evolved in Germany, Sweden, France and Belgium… And Denmark and Norway not far behind… And, perhaps, Great Britain itself!… Blatantly lying and self-serving chickenshit government officials; complicit judges and courts; rigged municipal elections !?!.. Say it isn’t so…

Good work Candice! Libranos all over again.

@Rick Plesnik commented 8 hours ago,
It was already clear before the election, the legal dope carrot blinded the fools.

You can tell the way he was talking that he doesn’t give a rats butt what we think. He’s above the law and stealing all he can while in office. He will get away with it because the liberals have paid everyone off with tax payer money. The absolute gall of him and his pet Trudeau calling small business men thieves, is truly disgusting. When you have no morals and no ethics, this is the kind of twisted person you get.
commented 2017-10-22 18:10:00 -0400
And the cbc…msm in Canada will back trudeau up and glorify his tears for morneau..
commented 2017-10-22 17:55:34 -0400
Oh..forgot the public apology to morneau from trudeau…trudeau will cry also for that…poor morneau…
commented 2017-10-22 17:39:43 -0400
trudeau will award morneau 10.5 million dollars for pain and suffering of getting caught..Is monsef still collecting welfare in her new position?

from CBC:

Finance Minister Bill Morneau waited 2 years to disclose company that owns his French villa to ethics watchdog

“I guess that he expects us to believe that he’s so rich that he just forgot that he has a private corporation in France and a wonderful villa in Provence,” said Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre. “It’s a little hard to believe.”

+ + + + +

Yup, Bill ‘MoreDough’ just “forgot”.

The more I hear about MoreDough, the more I think “this guy is like a tax cheat or an inside trader”.

Mark Chadwick, and then there’s that other Bill, the Hollywood Bill who drugged and raped women for decades.
commented 2017-10-22 16:17:36 -0400
Is this man stupid and didn’t think this would become knowledge (deja vu Hilary Clinton)?
Or does he just think we’re stupid?
Nice to be above the law.
commented 2017-10-22 16:17:06 -0400
Andy, good one!
Trudeau will be hiring the most expensive printing company in the Northern hemisphere to order large boxes of “get out of jail free” cards; he realizes the LPC are going to need them!
commented 2017-10-22 16:16:52 -0400
And that other Bill never had sexual relations with that women . Must be a Bill thing .
commented 2017-10-22 16:09:36 -0400
Tammie… It was obviously that darn “an administrative oversight” at work once again… And Morneau probably has some of those “get out of jail free” cards up his sleeve also…
commented 2017-10-22 14:53:36 -0400
I guess he also forgot the 8 million dollar contract too! This selective memory problem is troubling!
commented 2017-10-22 13:55:19 -0400
It’s becoming clearer by the day. The Lieberals are working for themselves, not the Middle Class! You idiots that voted for Jihadi Justin!

Just another liberal crooked hog feeding at the trough.
I bet if the MSM start poking him, he’ll squeal long and loud just like a pig being slaughtered.
Come to think of it, it is somewhat difficult to reconcile the liberal love of the religion of peace since the liberals in fact are all pigs bellying up to the trough filled with Canadian taxpayer cash.
