Trudeau's PMO silent on six-figure salary info once demanded from Harper

Today I have an order paper question response from a surprising source which shows us just how intellectually incurious the mainstream media is about certain issues now that the Liberals are in power.

The question was asked by Alex Boulerice, an NDP MP from Quebec and the deputy leader of that dumpster fire of a party.

Boulerice asked the following question:

“With regard to the staff of the Office of the Prime Minister, as of February 1, 2019: (a) how many earn an annual salary of $150,000 or more; (b) how many earn an annual salary of $200,000 or more; (c) how many earn an annual salary of $250,000 or more; (d} how many earn an annual salary of $300,000 or more; (e) of those who earn an annual salary of $200,000 or more, how many received a performance bonus; and (f) of those who received a performance bonus, how much was each of those bonuses?”

This should be an easy one for the Liberals to answer, given they used to ask this exact same question to the Conservatives when the Liberals were languishing in on the opposition benches. I’m also old enough to remember the ancient history of the summer of 2015 when Trudeau campaigned to be elected to lead a more “open and transparent” government than the Harper Conservatives ever were.

But today’s Liberals didn’t divulge the information Boulerice asked for, citing privacy legislation - the very same legislation that was in place when the Liberals asked for and received this compensation data from the Harper PMO in 2013.

In 2011, the Canadian Press appealed a Conservative decision not to release similar details when the media used access to information legislation to see salary details of the PMO. The Canadian Press of 2019 is not only not asking these questions anymore but they don’t even seem to care when someone else is denied the information.

The double standard could not be more evident. If it’s not a Tory, it’s not a story.

Truth is irrelevant to sociopathic sociopaths like Trudeau. Power is the only thing that matters to him. He already is making racist comments about whites in his speech about the enquiry into missing aboriginal women. What a waste of taxpayer dollars and an insult to us who would never reject anybody due to their skin colour.

CBC = Pravda of the Laurentian elite liberal political criminal class

Maybe the question was wrongly phrased. First, the staffers aren’t earning salaries. Earning implies work, which concept is foreign to the Laurentians. Second, the question limited itself to six figures.

It would have been better worded to have asked how many staffers were extorting seven figure salaries.

Then there would have been data.

The fact that they are Liberals should explain everything.
