Trudeau’s Liberals have brought about a major shake-up in the diplomatic corps claiming it’s about dumping partisan appointments for non-partisan ones. Well, that’s the claim but as always with the Liberals, the reality is different.
Watch as I go through some of the appointments made by the Liberals and show how these people are connected to the party and also look at a few clearly non-partisan appointments made by Harper.
If it was bad to appoint someone with political connections when those connections were Conservative, shouldn’t it be just as bad to do it when those connections are Liberal?
Of course, but diplomatic appointments was just one more stick the Liberals used to beat the conservatives over the last few years and now we see they didn’t really mean it.
