Media should probe Trudeau’s link to union bosses with deep pockets instead of his sock collection

Brian LilleyArchive

We know Trudeau’s Liberals are beholden to the labour movement and now we’re getting a better idea of how much from filings with Elections Canada on third party spending and filings by U.S. based unions. Millions were spent to oust Stephen Harper and pave the way for Trudeau.

Remember last summer when U.S. style Super PAC “Engage Canada” began pushing left wing, anti-Harper messages using ads filled with lies? Those ads and the infrastructure to support them cost money. We were told that Engage Canada could have amassed as much as $10 million to defeat Harper. Turns out that wasn’t far off the mark.

Two unions alone gave $2 million besides any big Canadian unions like Unifor, the Public Service Alliance or others. American based unions representing Canadian workers have until April 30th to file paperwork and so far we know the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) gave Engage Canada $500,000.

That’s the union Trudeau spoke to bragging about what he’s done for unions. Any media questions or scrutiny of this quid pro quo? None at all. Due to the type of transparency Trudeau repealed for Canadian unions, we know about the $500,000 IAFF spent to elect him and also know about the $1.5 million the Steelworkers gave to Engage Canada.

Engage Canada shut down when the writ was dropped so we don’t know what they spent on advertising or who else is on their donor list but trust me, they took in millions more from other unions, UNIFOR in particular.

The goal of Engage was simple; defeat Stephen Harper and the Conservatives, ensure either Trudeau’s Liberals or Mulcair’s NDP replaced him.

In the end it was Trudeau’s Liberals and now he owes them. He’s repaying them with moves like Bill C-4, doing away with secret ballots and transparency on how dues money is spent.

There’s more to tell on this and I’ll tell it. Canada’s labour movement helped buy the election for Trudeau whose massive majority was obtained with 39% of the vote.

Canadians sneer about big money in American politics. Here, the big money isn’t from corporations or wealthy robber barons, it’s from union bosses pushing their own agenda.

There isn’t Canadian media scrutiny of this phenomenon. They’re busy covering Trudeau’s staged mastery of quantum computing, or writing about his sock collection or yoga moves.

If other journalists would bother to look, they’d find this story too but that takes work. Trudeau’s links and debt to union bosses must be explored. Others won’t do it, so we will.

Andrew we in the west are all too aware of what the liberals did to us in the 80’s and 90’s and that’s why we were the only ones who didn’t vote liberal.

Want to see Canada’s FUTURE . . . just look at the Failed States of Europe . . .
We barely managed to survive Trudeau I . . . the marxist !
I suspect we won’t be as lucky this time . . . but the dopes that voted for this insanity are going to get the BILL . . . and it will be huge. And to the smug unions . . . pay attention to Detroit, that is your future !

Demarais and Dussault families steer all the funding to put this stupid fk Trudeau into office.

They sat around and laughed at using Stupid Trudeau because Canadians are stupid enough to believe the MSM and all their bullshit that goes with them.

This means that all of Quebec’s private sector financed Bernie Trudeau – the unions are the fringe element these days.

And all of Quebec’s affiliates which is strongly connected into Ontario’s bankers and Quebec’s insurance.

The west got fucked again – and they deserve to get fucked – if you are too stupid to know what the liberals did in the 80s and 90s, then you need a “punch in the head” reminder.

Enjoy the financial raping Canada – you chose this stupid fuck.

Secret ballots? How can you intimidate or marginalize those who vote against the union if you don’t know who they are? Union bosses have rights.

Unions hate secret ballots.

CSIS should probe Trudeau’s links to Islamic terrorism.

King Trudeau’s rise to the top was given to him by Marxist scum. Like every thing else in his life, he had a free ride, he is not capable of doing anything on his own, he requires a Father finger to show him the way.
When he falls, it will be a long drop and the sudden stop at the bottom, will kill him. If we are lucky.

Banana Republic status is exactly where we are heading, with Junior at the helm. It’s unbelievable that this clown is our PM. PM Harper was in a league of his own, and I miss his strong and steady leadership. And the fact that he wasn’t a crook but loved his country, which is more than I can say for the 2-faced clown in charge now.

I believe the Canadian public should be “probing” TruDope – with sticks, shovels, barb wire and a Hell-fire missile!!

If the government/justice system were functional, yes he would be investigated, it isn’t the first time he’s been caught grossly breaking the rules and ethics of public office. Remember him charging speaking fees while he was an MP? I think that is just the tip of the iceberg – the man has rubber ethics and he surrounds himself with amoral panderers.

But we no longer have a functional justice system or government – corruption, cronyism and influence brokering are the norm – we are competing with Cuba and Venezuela for banana republic operational political status.

Horrible people are doing this.
