Elections Canada hands a "get out of jail free card" to a progressive again

Brian LilleyArchive

I discuss yet another example of Elections Canada applying a double standard to wrong-doing, depending on which party is involved.

In a real court if you admit to doing a crime, you will surely have to do the time. Not so with Elections Canada.

With them, as long as a progressive admits that they did wrong they'll be given a 'get out of jail free card".

This is not to excuse wrong-doing by Conservatives but to make the point that we need to be holding everyone to the same standards and even a cursory review of a few cases, demonstrates that we're not.

It seems’ to me the Liberals’ and the NDP consider thenselves above the law and regulations that everyone else has to abide by! These are infractions that do not pass the smell test!
The is totally correct on this assessment!

Thanks for reminding us Gerry -what ever happened to the pending indictments that were being talked about by OPP prior to the last Ont. election? Cops and prosecutors on permanent vation and a scrubbed clean new cycle.
This country’s politics are so morbidly and openly corrupt only a zombie could put trust in the party system.

Would be good if The Rebel could do a follow-up story on This Feb.20, 2015 NP Headline…
“Jail time (for Wynne and her Mechanics) possible as Elections Ontario sends investigation of Sudbury byelection to Attorney General”

If you are correct Joan, then once acquitted Mr. del Mastro should take the individuals of Elections Canada involved in prosecuting his case to civil court and sue the gosh darned heck out of them for malicious prosecution preventing him from pursuing his elected career and civil duty. Regressives use law-fare at the slighest tweak of an eye-brow by the progressives of the right. The progressive right needs to stop fighting the regressives using the Marquis de Salisbury rules, and just drop the gloves and kick up the feet like they do.

Dean Del Mastro will win on appeal but not, of course, before the election. Muslim Liberal candidate Maryam Monsef will likely take that seat but I bet she’ll only keep it for one term. Then the Conservative candidate will take it back.

So discouraging, this two-tier partisan justice system.

The more the Conservatives unwind the decades of a nazi pig liberal built system (mulroney was a chosen liberal under the PROGRESSIVE conservative brand), the nastier this system really is.

Orwell was bang on. Two sets of rules (one set buried in the other set to save the nazi pigs). And equality for everyone, except the liberal nazi pigs – they’re just a bit more equal than others.

It will be pure entertainment to watch troodo and these sh*tbag nazi pig liberals get the beating of their lives come October.

Like most of the Federal Beaurucracy, Elections Canada is full of regressive progressive lefties!

Great work Brian. How do we let them know how pissed we are
