Columnist: "The Ontario Liberal government and the OPP are too close"

Marissa SemkiwArchive

Do the wheels of justice grind slower for the Ontario Liberal government than they do for Ottawa's Conservatives? That's the question being asked by many, including Lorrie Goldstein, columnist with the Toronto Sun.

In a recent column, he compares two investigations:

The RCMP probe into Canadian senators accused of fraud and breach of trust, and the OPP investigation into the Ontario Liberal gas plants scandal.

Both investigations began only a few months apart, but Goldstein notes that while the trials of Senators Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau and Mac Harb are proceeding, the OPP has yet to announce charges related to the gas plants scandal.

"This strikes me as odd," he writes. "[F]or heaven’s sake, this isn’t Watergate. Why is the OPP taking so long?"

Goldstein says that this apparent double standard in Canada's justice system would appear to show that "the Ontario Liberal government and the OPP are too close."

The media party is to blame too. They cannot get enough of the Duffy trial but were silent on the trial of the Liberal appointed pervert Deputy Minister of Education Ben Levin.

Amazing, that you so much.

I hate to believe the extent of the corruption and duplicity that exists at the corporate or institutional level. I generally would like to think well of people, but I’ve seen too much and have first hand experience of too many incidents, to be able to turn my head and pretend the corruption at the institutional level doesn’t exist; with government, trade unions and the police all watching each other’s back. Since I live in BC, my experience has only been with the RCMP, so I really can’t comment on the OPP except for what I hear. I believe individual Officers are like people everywhere, there’s good and bad. The corruption and duplicity is much higher up. This is so depressing. Life was much more pleasant when I believed in Sargent Dudley Do-Right.

May I make a suggestion to the sound engineer of these videos? Please use the same mono sound mix in both the left and right channels. This is a news site, so we don’t need any fancy stereo sound mixes for the videos. It was strange seeing Marissa talking on the right side of the screen but hearing her voice panned to the left channel, and vice versa for Lorrie. Maybe I just notice things like this because I use headphones?

Brian Kelly – well Brian there may be charges laid against some obvious crooked Liberal skank (after all they have to maintain the illusion there is no corruption of the rule of law) but I think the days are over for ever expecting criminal conduct to convict a sitting Liberal (or connected liberal crony) in Onterrible.
commented 2015-04-07 18:32:14 -0400
remember who promoted Wynne – and who just got charged with crimes. seems I read something about union brass!
commented 2015-04-07 17:59:37 -0400
I have lost complete respect for the OPP many years ago, there is no doubt in my mine that the OPP are in bed with the Ontario Liberals and that is the reason there have been no charges, and most likely no charges will ever be laid, the OPP will keep dragging it’s feet until next election.

When Mcchimpy came back to Canada after the election we knew the fix was in – OPP= Onterrible Political Police – public sector union goons.

With the Attorney General and the Solicitor General both appointed by Wynn, I don’t wonder the OPP is hampered.
commented 2015-04-07 17:33:57 -0400
Wonder if the OPP would permit any of us to set our own schedule with them for being interviewed for suspected criminal activity. I’ll meet with you in August sometime – maybe. My guess is no. However Wynne seems to be playing the – if you drag the issue out long enough another will take it’s place card – and people will forget. And the OPP seem to be more than willing to accommodate her.

When the people learn to march on traitorous leadership and publicly hang them there will be better leadership, not before. When the people have learned to be fed by their leadership, there will be slavery. We’re almost there…

Seems to me there is one system of justice for the Liberals in Ontario, and another system for the rest of Canada. In Ontario, these is not even the PERCEPTION of justice!

Wow very incite full, I can’t quite rap my head around the Ontario voters that they can’t see the close resemblance between wynnes government and the Iranian mullahs

OMG its like the good guys against the bad only you’re not sure who is who, thanks for the info Joan and please take care., doesn’t surprise me about the unions, wasn’t it the Postal Worker’s Union that was carrying a Hamas flag just last summer.
With the length of time these investigations have taken it really makes you wonder what information the Opp are sitting on…

Why is the OPP slow in investigating McGuinty-Wynne fraud and scandal? Well, as Brian Lilley says, the OPPA (the union representing the OPP officers) is in cozy with the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals. In 2014, the OPPA took out ads opposing the Progressive Conservatives. Also in 2014, the OPPA donated about $6,400 the Ontario Liberals, according to Elections Ontario documents. One senior member of the OPPA (now under investigation for fraud in the First Response Travel Group fraud), ran and lost for the Liberals in the last election. The principal lawyer for the OPPA, one Andrew McKay, has donated about $3,400 to the federal Liberals over the past three years, according to Elections Canada files. Therefore it is safe to say that the OPPA — at least up to the time of when they cleaned house, after the First Response Travelers scandal - was one big happy Liberal family. This is why the OPP is dragging its heels. And outside of Rebel media and Sun News, nobody seems to care at all. The establishment media are keeping unusually quiet about this. - David Murrell, Economics, University of New Brunswick dmurrell@unb,ca

OPP are they part of any union ?? all those leftist friends,

As a result of a Supreme Court decision years ago, these days, if the Crown has a solid case because of strong evidence, the only way to avoid conviction is if it simply takes too long for charges to be filed and brought to court. Just sayin’.

you will get an announcement, most likely on a day before a long weekend in the summer..

Commenting on “Justin Trudeau’s ‘hidden agenda’? Apply Wynne’s Ontario policies to all of Canada”, LIZA earlier had observed, “I hate too be a broken record, but the unions run that province, and own Wynne. Even though she is trying some tough talk to make it look as though she wags the tail instead of the tail wagging her.” In response MAURICE POTVIN commented, “Liza, I think the reason that the Trade Unions have become the Socialist Marxist organizations that they have become, is because the grass root members are completely disinterested in their Unions”. The unequal justice in Ontario supports Liza’s claim that “the unions run that province”. Much as Trevor Loudon, author of “The Enemies Within – Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress”, has revealed that Communist-controlled unions in the U.S. control and dictate the Democrats in Congress who owe their election to the assistance of the unions. A12-minute talk by Loudon explaining how the Communist-controlled labor unions are influencing and controlling the politics of our day.

The socialist infestation of the OPP hierarchy began with the appointment of “Tilting” Tom O’Grady back in the early 90s and in no time at all it had oozed into the hiring and promotional criteria as well as the OPPA. Another thing that contributes to the Liberal/socialist bias is the fact that a good chunk of raw recruits were brought up in households in Ontario’s major urban centre’s – and we all know how those households vote.

Awesome. Glad to have Lorrie Goldstein’s take. Its an evil web. There’s that Union connection again. Bad smell!
Wow Joan, thanks for sharing that post.

The whole system is corrupt. That is what I told the Select Committee for Sexual Assault and Harassment started by Conservative Laurie Scott. She exposed the Crown lawyer paid $180,000 to go away in lieu of an investigation and I cited examples of police fabrication of evidence and mentioned self-admitted police witnesses to violations of legislation and while I continue to report to the OCPC, to RCMP and most recently to the Honourable GG David Johnson, no one has ever asked to see my evidence or for the names of my witnesses so they can check my claims.

I think the corrupt system agents, includimg police and Crown agents, are intimidated and paid incentives by big labour and their associates in the international jihadi movement. Various system agents with access to information my FOI requests redacted called those responsible for the violations of law I’ve reported “terrorists”. I note also that in my community, police who have fabricated evidence and refused to keep records are on the city’s sunshine list. They are those police who, when I’ve done what an IPC mediator recommended, written my own records and asked police to attach them to theirs, have menaced me if I don’t stop reporting, they will charge me with criminally harassing police.

There are similarities between the corruption in our system – established via greed and intimidation – and the corruption of bureaucracy we see in all corrupt systems including those very vile systems that eventually commit genocide. Intellectual cleansing from universities. Marginalizing and silencing opposing media voices. Criminalizing and ghettoizing critics. And police turning a bline eye to political crime in general and, in particular, to government crimes like we see in Ontario.

Thanks, Lorrie, for the expose, despite the need for your use of very careful language.
