NDP claims Trudeau broke the rules

Brian LilleyArchive

As the NDP deals with their own problems of breaking House of Commons rules, the socialist party is firing back at their main nemesis, Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau.

The NDP has been ordered to repay $2.75 million over the use of satellite offices that were paid for by taxpayers but used for partisan campaigning.

They've also been ordered to repay $1.17 million for improper use of MPs mailing privileges. Stung by what they consider a witch hunt and the "kangaroo court" of the House of Commons Board of Internal Economy, the New Democrats are fighting back reports Canadian Press.

In a letter Thursday to Scheer, Windsor NDP MP Brian Masse raises "serious concerns" about a Liberal caucus meeting on Parliament Hill last June, at which Trudeau showcased recently nominated candidates.

Masse says the event violated the rules, which forbid premises provided to an MP by the Commons to be used for partisan purposes.

The Liberals have fired back, pointing to the NDP's own social media sites that show pictures of key NDP campaign operatives at NDP caucus meetings.

Liberal MP Ralph Goodale told CP that caucus meetings are by their nature partisan and do not fall under the same rules as MPs use of meeting rooms.

This latest attempt to show parties as misusing public facilities comes one day after the Liberals claimed the NDP was using an MPs constituency office for campaign purposes.

I too am quite happy for the second and third parties to fight amongst themselves. And seriously, don’t mention the c word again. Not surprised this isn’t being covered extensively by the mainstream media even though the NDP apparently misappropriated close to $4 million in taxpayers’ money, somehow this doesn’t warrant coverage compared to the couple thousand here or there in alleged conservative misuse that the CBC is always ranting about.
Bias in action.

Hey Peter Mansbridge nothing to see here, look over there I think it’s a squirrel snatching your nuts … oh sorry that was just Mulcair taking entitlements that he alone is entitled to … right out of your left pocket. >;^P

I kind of care. I agree with Christina, its good that the second and third party squabble. What could be better really. And Peter L., don’t ever mention that again out loud.

Does this mean no coalition? ;-)

Interesting that mad man Tommy and the camp counsellor are at each others throats, when one is no better than the other. Both of them want to make Canada into a socialist/Marxist backwater, so its kind of like each other calling the pot black, lol..

I also agree with Brenda Lynn. Also an edit function for your own posts, but, so far as this article goes….. “fight you biatches..I would hate to see you at peace”. Not as worried now that they will amalgamate as minority parties to form a government should the public stay myopic. Really for anyone with any kind of logic…could you vote liberal or ndp?

I agree with Brenda Lynn. Thumbs up and down and an easier way to reply.

Angry Tom and Junior Mint pointing fingers at each other. Kettle, meet pot.

I don’t care. I won’t be voting for either of them, anyway.

This is popcorn time.. I just love it when the lefties eat their own.

He has such a stunned look when he is not acting.
I can’t believe that the Liberal party and their dear leader would do anything underhanded and deceitful. I usually check out the CBC news on my computer every morning before coming to my favorite sit – the REBEL. I did not see anything approaching a news story about this wrong doing by the Pretty boy and his party or for that matter anything about the NDP, not even a small article.
So, THE REBEL is making up these vicious stories just to put down dear old Justin. After all if the CBC (where Canada lives) does not report it, then it did not happen – right?
I did read on the CBC site, as I do every morning since the trial started, about Mike Duffy. So I conclude that since the CBC (where Canada lives), is making such an effort to keep abreast of this extremely important issue, that Mike Duffy is undoubtedly guilty of all charges – after all CBC would never spend so much time and effort on this issue if he was not guilty, because that would mean that Mr. Harper and the Conservatives are also innocent of any wrong doing in this issue, and we (the CBC) cannot condone that kind of behaviour.
I cannot remember the CBC spending so much time and effort on all the sexual wrong doing within their organization or on the Gomeshi (hope I spelled that right) affair. So, I conclude that all of that was also made up by vicious news people like those who work for the REBEL.
In conclusion, all I have to say is – Keep up the good work REBEL – I like your brand of viciousness, HA, HA.
The truth be known, CANADA actually lives within the REBEL .

Eileen Mcrae, maybe the watch dog is a closet socialist. That would explained why things have been so quite.if it were the conservatives we would be hearing about it alright.

where are the
“thumbs up” “thumbs down” “reply” links here????…anyways, did the Liberals Golden Boy make a boo boo?

Canada is a country governed and ruled by too many laws. I happen to agree. It’s like we are a nanny state saying you can’t do this and you can’t do that. It’s time to loosen up the laws restricting what we can and cannot do as long as people aren’t killing each other I’m for less stupidity with the law.

I thought Parliament had a “watchdog” to oversee what MP’s do? Has the watchdog lost its bark?

NDP misconduct, Liberal misconduct. This cannot be, ‘cuz the CBC told me only Harper and the Conservatives are evil !! Justin, oh dreamy Justin, he’s innocent! And the NDP just by virtue on not being Conservatives are perfect and innocent too! You believe me, don’t you?
commented 2015-04-10 13:26:35 -0400
This is just another diversion by the NDP to take focus away from the money they owe! This is epidemic as it is also happening in Ontario with the Wynne government and all their scandals.
commented 2015-04-10 13:13:03 -0400
shhh….let them fight and focus on each other while Harper focuses on Canada :)

who are the organizers of these events, should they not know the rules

Only a politician would see it fit to spend 10 times what the job pays just to get the job. This is another example of the quality of people we’re stuck with – sociopaths and psychopaths.

Perhaps elected and appointed politicians in Canada should be mandated to carry malpractice insurance like other professions or be barred from office . In their case, public disclosure of all the various levels of premiums paid would serve as a good marker as to their varied carelessness and crookedness. It would also negate the “guilty but so what, I’m stonewalling forever” option used now.

what is right is right, and what is wrong is wrong! simple!!

NDP have nothing to lose so hopefully they will both show what idiots they really are. Not that that will matter to the idiot voters.

Seeng the Libs fight the NDP brings a smile to my face….
I only imagine it’s like a puppet show, with HARPER pulling the strings to make the dummies move!

Let them at it, maybe they will hang each other. I’m sure the Media Party will have a lot of fun not talking about it.
