Gerald Butts compares corrupt SNC-Lavalin to lawful pipeline projects

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on Justin Trudeau's disgraced former Principal Secretary Gerald Butts' testimony on the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Gerald Butts isn't a lawyer, so it's not surprising that his defense of Trudeau's politically motivated interference in the justice system lacked any legal basis.

Butts claimed that Trudeau's attempt to shield SNC-Lavalin from being charged for bribing the Libyan government was about "protecting jobs", but the law specifically forbids protecting a company from prosecution on the basis of economic concerns!

WATCH my video to see how Gerald Butts attempted to equate lawful pipeline projects by oil and gas companies to the corrupt practices of SNC-Lavalin.

Actually if you think about it, there will be no jobs lost other than by the criminals at the top of SNC. The other 8800 will be hired by other companies that will be awarded the contracts that the criminal at SNC wont be benifitting from. End of debate!!

" Canada is broken beyond repair and the East is too greedy to fix things. "

Hey, ALBERTA MAGA. Did you see this? Obammy has a full house in Winnipeg, a sold out crowd in Calgary, and an adoring audience in Vancouver. Seems like a lot of Westerners not only don’t want things fixed, but they’ll pay to listen to the arsehole that broke them.

Al Peterson.. it was never about jobs… If it was about jobs, provincial and national revenues they would never have knee capped our energy resource sector.

Charred Remains totally agree, Canada is broken beyond repair and the East is too greedy to fix things.

Buttskie has alway been intelligent enough to know when to abandon a sinking ship… Prime example being when he abandoned the ship when it was obviously starting to sink under Fibber McSquinty in Ontario… The really curious factor in all of this is:- why didn’t he learn from from the now obvious mistakes he had made over and over again… I believe there is a psychiatric term for somebody still living “in denial” in middle age…

It’s fun and interesting to see the globalist filth Butts and Trudeau lying on camera in front of the entire nation.
It exposes the Swine for all to see

Here’s the question for Butts:

“Every week in this country hundreds of ordinary Canadians are convicted of the Criminal Code offence of driving over .08 because they had one beer too many. Conviction carries mandatory driving prohibitions, which in many cases results in job losses and the all the attendant economic and social hardships. Would you be prepared to justify political interference in pending prosecutions for Operating a motor vehicle over .08 on those same grounds: that it would be okay if it was all about “protecting jobs”?

The issue was jobs. This is because jobs today buy votes tomorrow. So in the short term it was about jobs but in the longer term it was about votes, i.e. power.

Here is a comment I made on the CBC web site about Butts/Wilson-Raybould that was CONTENT DISABLED!!
" So….who had the most to gain by lying?? I would believe Wilson-Raybould any day not only because she is telling it the way it is, but because she has credibility, which is in short supply in the Liberal Party"
I am so pissed that the CBC is getting away with this censorship. I previously suggested to Ezra that he run a parallel comments section to the CBC so people can actually say what they want. So far, not even a response from Ezra!! Meanwhile, CBC spreading their fake news!!
