Justice Minister Wilson-Raybould latest Liberal called out for "shady" fundraising tactics

Brian LilleyArchive

Liberals across the country, provincial and federal, can’t seem to stop getting into trouble for their shady fundraising tactics. 

We’ve pointed out problems with Ministers Bob Chiarelli and Charles Souza who have both been feted at pricey events held by those they’re in charge of regulating.

And now we have another at the federal level with Justice Minister Judy Wilson-Raybould in a conflict of interest for participating in a private fundraiser with lawyers who could be seeking favour with her for any number of reasons.

The conflict is so apparent Ujjal Dosanjh has even written a piece calling for this event to be cancelled and I agree with him on that.

The Liberals should know, fundraising rules are in place for a reason. Making people “pay to play” shouldn’t be part of our political system.

I agree that we should not be taking in all these refugees. You are correct, politicians are no better than other Canucks and therefore should be subject to the same rules and laws. If a politician breaks the law (ie: Duffy and company) they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, be made to pay back every dime they stole even if they are faced with bankruptcy and lose all their entitlements as well as their elevated positions. If any honest person were to do what these bozos did the companies they work for would turf them out and perhaps lay charges.
As for the refugees, arriving in Canada does not entitle them to a free ride but they should have basic services provided and min all money, not $61 per day per person meal allowance. I’d love $61 per day myself but can’t afford more than $20 per day. However, at $20 per day I must say I can eat pretty well. Where is the common sense in Ottawa?

Robert you are correct , but moving forward All POLITICIANS have to be held accountable for there actions . For example retard Trudeau seems to think he is playing MONOPOLY he is giving all CANADIANS money away like it is an endless pit , I and millions of other Canadians get up go to work hard for our money , Now with the evidence out there these refugees are coming into CANADA getting A FREE living on the tax payers dime contributing nothing to Canada only for them to get more VOTES agree ?

Liebranos can’t help themselves. Entitled and rotten to the core. By extension, one has to surmise their supporters feel the same way!

All Liberal politicians are corrupt no matter the level of government – a Liberal is a Liberal is a Liberal period.

“To be frank, politics is about wanting power, getting it, exercising it, and keeping it.”

Hard to change the past, especially for politicians. We can only move forward from this point.

Here are a few quotes that are apt:

““A great leader must serve the best interests of the people first, not those of multinational corporations. Human life should never be sacrificed for monetary profit. There are no exceptions. In addition, a leader should always be open to criticism, not silencing dissent. Any leader who does not tolerate criticism from the public is afraid of their dirty hands being revealed under heavy light. And such a leader is dangerous, because they only feel secure in the darkness. Only a leader who is free from corruption welcomes scrutiny; for scrutiny allows a good leader to be an even greater leader.”
― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes. Distinctions in society will always exist under every just government. Equality of talents, of education, or of wealth cannot be produced by human institutions. In the full enjoyment of the gifts of Heaven and the fruits of superior industry, economy, and virtue, every man is equally entitled to protection by law; but when the laws undertake to add to these natural and just advantages artificial distinctions, to grant titles, gratuities, and exclusive privileges, to make the rich richer and the potent more powerful, the humble members of society—the farmers, mechanics, and laborers—who have neither the time nor the means of securing like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their Government.”
― Andrew Jackson

“-The very absence of the freedom to criticise against your own or any other government is all the more a reason to loudly shout-out for democracy! If that is wrong, Drew boldly went on, -then I would rather be wrong then to be numbered among the majority of the so-called righteous people whose only mandate seems to be controlling people. If a government is against its people expressing themselves, then that government is obviously hiding something criminal from its people and the world, and it is therefore afraid of being exposed and losing whatever power it has.”

They all have the same pasted on smiles of deception, while they pick the taxpayers pockets. Never trust a liberal, they will lie and deceive until they are dead. Rules are only for law abiding citizens, and there aren’t any in the liberal, NDP or Greenie parties.

Electoral reform:
1. No documented Canadian can vote, only natural Canadians can can vote.
(documented Canadian has citizenship documents but not born in Canada. Natural Canadian is born in Canada).
2. Each party is entitled to $2,000,000 for each member elected. Parties that do not have any members elected would die off. Make “pay to play” fundraising illegal.
3. Only national parties would be allowed. For example, the Partie Québécois would not be able to field any candidates in a national election.
4. Incorporate a referendum in each election with no more than 10 questions in which the electorate can voice their opinions on topical matters. ie: refugees, gun laws and so on.
5. Make it illegal for people with the right to vote to not perform their duties. A hefty fine, say of $1,000, for failing to vote would persuade most people to go to the ballot box.
6. Politicians are all good at making promises but rather poor at keeping them. For politicians who don’t keep their promises or whose party fails to carry out campaign promises, they should be turfed.
7. In order to receive a full pension, every politician must serve a minimum of 3 terms.
If they serve only one term, they should receive 1/3 of a full pension and 2/3 if they serve 2 terms.
8. Candidates for the highest office in the land must have a background in politics, must be a natural Canadian must have some work experience in some real world job outside of politics . . . burger flippers need not apply.
9. No politician can serve more than 3 terms.
10. If a member of any party, governing or not, is found to be in breach of any rules, they are to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. This includes senators. If they have stolen from the public purse, they are to make full restitution and lose their posts.

This is only the beginning there’s a lot more that could be do Everything!

Robert your total brain washing by the lieberals and trudumb are scary as you can’t seem to know right from wrong if a lieberal does it

Robert said, "To many of the Rebel commenters, the left can do no right and the right can do no wrong. Really? "

Robert, either you are a liar or you are not paying attention to what TheRebel does or you are “sack of hammers” stupid, because TheRebel does expose Conservative corruption as well where there is some. You assume that the Conservatives are as corrupt as your lovers, the Liberals. Speaking of hypocrites …
commented 2016-04-07 11:45:04 -0400
Robert said, “Just like to know how many Conservatives have been exposed by the rebel for doing the same thing.”

Can you list any? Please supply the link to the proof.

It is not corruption if it is the Liberals doing it.

They have been granted special dispensation from the federal bureaucracy, judiciary and especially the media.
commented 2016-04-07 11:41:03 -0400
Just like to know how many Conservatives have been exposed by the rebel for doing the same thing. Ideological bias much? To many of the Rebel commenters, the left can do no right and the right can do no wrong. Really? Scary when ones rapid devotion to a party/ideology clouds ones judgement.
commented 2016-04-07 11:03:50 -0400
Like all Liberal corruption it will be given yet another free pass by the law enforcers and of course by the media (MSM). Absolutely disgusting but nothing new nor shocking.

Whayda talkin’ ’bout!!!

But this is usual Liberal tactics; always has been and always will be. They are ever able to return to and retain power through politics of division, by appealing to the free-loaders of Atlantic Canada, Quebec, and increasingly Southern Ontario (the non free-loaders of those regions are great people that came west of the lakehead for jobs). Also the reason to import 10’s of thousands unskilled refugees: more free-loaders to boost the liberal vote.

For the ultimate in Liberal corruption, I am just waiting for the electoral reform that will be imposed. Then we will have a government that will make Latin America jealous, and close to the government that Junior admires most, China.

As long as the CBC and the other complicit main stream media “massage” their coverage of the Liberals parties both provincial and federal, the Canadian people will never get the truth except from sited like TheRebel.Media. This also applies to the NDP and the main stream media’s love affair with Notley. You would think Justin would get jealous sharing his media bed partners with Notley.

Ujjal Dosanjh is not an angel either. He did some pretty terrible things when in BC. But – it seems the world is being over-run by crooks & thieves – all reprobates who should be sitting in jail – oh right – jails are for pot-smokers & gun owners.

liberal corruption is well documented and their standard way of doing business. they are not a political party, rather a Ponzi scheme rife with cronyism. their involvement with politics is limited to spending your money and raising your taxes while lying through their teeth all the way. and they have paid-off everyone who could incarcerate them.
this is what you get at every level when you vote liberal.
commented 2016-04-07 09:46:44 -0400
Yes, but aren’t the liberals people not subject to the laws of the land? Therefore they can do what they want and please.
