McGuinty aide apologizes to “champagne-socialist friends” (but not taxpayers)

David MenziesMission Specialist


Why does sorry always seem to be the hardest word for politicians and bureaucrats to utter?

Ontario’s cancelled gas plants scandal was just one of the many billion-dollar boondoggles that occured under the McGuinty/Wynne Liberals.

They were set to build plants in Oakville and Mississauga but come election time in 2011, voters got a case of NIMBYism, so the Liberals accommodated by cancelling the project at a staggering cost of more than $1.1B.

The opposition parties demanded an investigation into how much these cancellations cost which also revealed an effort to hide this huge waste of taxpayer money.

Former Premiere Dalton McGuinty’s chief of staff, David Livingston, was investigated for destroying computer records including hard drives that contained embarrassing information.

He was recently found guilty of illegal use of a computer system, and in a pre-sentencing statement, offered a profuse apology.

Actually, not really, because if you listen closely, you’ll notice something missing in his mea culpa.

Livingston said sorry to his friends, colleagues and family but not to Ontario taxpayers.

After all the exposure, shame and toxic publicity, he can’t be bothered to say sorry to the people who were hurt the most.

Livingston is the sacrificial lamb. There are more Liberals who should be charged.

You can be certain the judge loved the apology and the sentence will be light – after all the justice system in cauckistan was killed off long ago – it is now a politically correct legal system.

Heck I would not be surprised if this criminal got a nice cheque from whine-terrio – after all there are elements of this case that could be compared to the way federal lieberals treat islamics.

I wonder if this criminal will become a millionaire?

The Ontario Liberal government is corrupt to the core. Time for Doug Ford to straighten things up. Go Doug!

I’m sure Dr. Jordan Peterson could do better with the psychology behind this but criminals dehumanize their victims before they commit crimes against them. That’s what’s happening with this elitist criminal political stooge. As far as he’s concerned taxpayers are simply serfs who owe the government their money, not hard working people who were ripped off by crooked politicians.

Lock Him UP for being a Liberal.

David Livingston, may you rot in hell! It is my hope he will receive a jail sentence instead of community service.
