Bill Morneau is Justin Trudeau’s idea of a business success:
Morneau inherited his business from his dad, and he married a billionaire heiress.
When Morneau became finance minister, his company said he put his ownership in a blind trust.
But it turns out that he didn’t.
Morneau’s company, Morneau Shapell, isn’t just any financial company. They specialize in pensions, benefits and financial structuring for families, small businesses, the like. So Morneau’s changes to tax policy disproportionately benefit his firm.
It would be like Donald Trump cutting taxes on casinos.
Since he started making these changes, his shares in Morneau Shepell have skyrocketed — he’s made $5 million.
Now he says he’ll give the money to charity.
Great: So he’ll just take a huge charity tax credit, to reduce his tax bill even more?
But there’s one thing that’s new: Morneau says he recused himself from cabinet discussions when he had a personal stake in things. He said he did so twice.
So we filed an Access to Information request for any records about that in the Finance Department. Here’s the answer we got:
“… after a thorough search, no records exist in the Department of Finance Canada concerning this request.”
Are they lying? Or is he?
And how much longer will the Liberals tolerate this corrupt boob as finance minister?
I think now is long enough. He needs to be fired.
Will you sign the petition? I’d like to get 100,000 signatures — and we’ll personally deliver it to his office. Go to FireMorneau.com and sign today.
