March 13, 2019 - Thanks to you, The Rebel recently visited Ottawa, the nation’s capital, behind the wheel of a jumbotron-equipped truck, to deliver some pointed messages to the Trudeau Liberals regarding SNC-Lavalin.
UPDATE: Another Liberal cabinet minister resigns, calling Trudeau corrupt
Published on March 4, 2019
Moments ago, Jane Philpott, regarded as one of Justin Trudeau’s most competent cabinet ministers, quit. And on her way out, she blasted Trudeau as deeply unethical.
Philpott says Trudeau and his cronies have corrupted Canada’s judicial system, and she can no longer in conscience be a part of his cabinet.
Here’s what she said:
It grieves me to resign from a portfolio where I was at work to deliver an important mandate. I must abide by my core values, my ethical responsibilities, constitutional obligations. There can be a cost to acting on one’s principles, but there is a bigger cost to abandoning them. pic.twitter.com/EwO5dtdgG6— Jane Philpott (@janephilpott) March 4, 2019
This is a stunning development. And it shows that there must be much more than Trudeau’s insiders know, if they’re abandoning ship.
And yet Trudeau’s hand-picked replacement as Attorney General, David Lametti, refuses to call for any public inquiry, let alone for an RCMP investigation.
That’s not good enough for two Liberal cabinet ministers. And more may yet quit.
It’s time the RCMP investigate these most serious charges.
Trudeau can’t be trusted to investigate himself, and neither can Lametti, and neither can his lackeys on Parliament's Justice Committee.
Only an RCMP investigation — with the power of search warrants — can get to the bottom of this.
And one more thing: we’re hiring a giant mobile billboard — a big jumbotron truck — to drive around Ottawa with this same message.
The jumbotron truck is massive, and it’s a sight to behold, but it costs us about $2,000/day. If you want to help us get that jumbotron truck on the road — demanding an RCMP investigation! — please click here.
The Montreal-based company SNC-Lavalin is one of the world's largest engineering and construction companies and one of the most corrupt.
SNC-Lavalin is also a major donor to the Liberal Party of Canada. The two entities are incredibly intertwined.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Justin Trudeau and his inner circle allegedly attempted to go to bat for SNC-Lavalin when they got caught bribing the Libyan government under its former dictator, the brutal Moammar Gadaffi.
SNC-Lavalin does work all over the world, but in Canada, the company faces fraud and corruption charges related to nearly $50 million in bribes it is alleged to have paid to Gadaffi's gang. Part of that gang included Gadaffi's son, who SNC-Lavalin invited to live in Montreal. While he was there, SNC-Lavalin financed his debauchery, including using petty cash to pay for prostitutes, strippers, and pornography.
Then, when SNC-Lavalin was caught, asked their friends in government to let them pay a fine and apologize, instead of going to trial and being truly accountable for their crimes.
Our Justice Minister at the time, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was having none of that. She wasn't willing to meddle in the Canadian justice system to give Liberal Party friends favourable treatment. And her party turned on her for it.
But unlike other bullied silent Liberals, Wilson-Raybould spoke up and fought back against Trudeau's corruption. She testified that Justin Trudeau and his staff — including his principal secretary and best friend Gerald Butts, as well as Katie Telford, Trudeau's chief of staff — spent months trying to obstruct justice in the SNC-Lavalin case. (That’s a crime that is punishable with up to 10 years in prison).
Justin Trudeau has said he is going to leave this decision with the ethics commissioner, but that's not enough. This isn't just about ethics — it's also about criminality. The RCMP must now get involved and conduct a criminal investigation into Trudeau and his staff.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP
1. I've launched a petition to the RCMP, telling them to begin a criminal investigation. If you agree that Trudeau and his inner circle deserve to be investigated by the RCMP, then please sign the petition below.
2. We want to get a video billboard truck to tell everyone how Trudeau may have obstructed justice. We want it to drive around Montreal and Ottawa, right where Trudeau feels safest. We've done this before. It’s a fun and effective way to fight back and get the truth out. But the truck can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000 per day. If you want to chip in to help us fund it, please click here. It's costly, but we think telling Justin Trudeau that they don't allow fancy socks in prison is priceless.
Sign the petition!
We, the undersigned, demand that the RCMP launch a criminal investigation into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's handling of the SNC-Lavalin scandal.
