SCOOP: Trudeau’s best friend Gerald Butts is in the centre of another ethics scandal, involving hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars

Rebel Staff

Hey, did you see Sheila Gunn Reid’s huge scoop the other day? It turns out that Justin Trudeau sent a huge sole-sourced contract — that means, a contract that no other companies were allowed to bid on — to the Eurasia Group, a lobby group that hates oil.

Who’s that? Why, what a coincidence! That just happens to be the New York City lobby group that gave Gerald Butts, Trudeau’s disgraced advisor and best friend, a soft landing after he was forced to resign in disgrace over the SNC Lavalin fiasco.

In short:

Gerald Butts, the disgraced PMO staffer and best friend of Trudeau, went to a fancy New York consulting firm that just happened to get a sole-sourced $200,000 contract with the Liberal government.

Since Sheila she broke this news a couple of days ago, a whole bunch of incredible things happened.

Only one other media followed Sheila’s scoop, though — The Post Millennial basically just re-wrote Sheila’s news, copying it almost word-for-word, actually. But at least they gave her credit for breaking the story.

The story was ignored by the mainstream media. Then Brett Wilson, the successful financier and former Dragon’s Den star, well, he was furious about IT. He tweeted his outrage, and the fact he was outraged to the point of swearing!

Now, that’s a fancy person. He’s conservative, but he’s part of the jet-set himself, and someone that Gerald Butts obviously respects — or at least fears a little bit.

Butts just lost it. He started making weird threats all over the place in response to people asking him about it. Saying they were on "public notice," whatever that means.

Now, Butts was clearly coordinating with the Eurasia Group, because we received an email from them. TONIGHT I'll show you the message.

They told us we needed to correct the story or take it down.

But what is the error that needs correcting? We got our information from the government website.

Even better, in this email they told us they've been getting contracts from Trudeau since 2017! When Butts was still working for Trudeau.

We didn’t know that. But they literally told us about more scandals, without us even asking them!

And we’re only starting to ask questions. I guess that’s my "public notice" to Gerald Butts...

NEXT: Candice Malcolm of the True North Initiative talks about reports that the border guards' union is complaining of a lack of resources to deal with bogus refugee claims.

Butts and Trudeau sit high and mighty on their “thrones” but we the people get the absolute perfect view of what they really are….donkey holes (my apologies to all donkeys)! The Liberal dictatorship’s taxpayer purchased propaganda media hasn’t covered this backroom deal since Shelia broke the news. In Trudeauland everything dark and sinister is embraced, they fail miserably when they assume all Canadians are like the ones gripping their pant legs hoping for Librano crumbs.

No MSM has advised that 150,000 illegals have sauntered into Canada! The highest figure I’ve heard is 50,000 and not one MSM has stated that it’s 50,000 annually. Failing to be honest they imply 50,000 is the total amount since the twit tweeted. Trudeau is forcing Canadian taxpayers to pay all costs associated with illegal entrants without any discussion or consultation with those stuck paying the bills, just like any other 3rd world dictator. These illegals are receiving better care than most Canadians. Trudeau quietly paid his Syrian imports $50,000 each…is he accommodating illegals in the same manner? How many Canadians have received their $50,000 cheque from the pretender?

God help Canada if the amoral Trudeau gains office again!

Hey Butts and Trudeau(Andrew S.?).. do you think your worshippers out number Everyday Canadians? I bet you don’t think so.. That’s why you don’t want Bernier and the PPC at any of the debates.. Shit!.. Your boy Trudeau is hiding from the debates.. Hmm.. Bernier and the PPC are willing participants into the debates but are being SHUT OUT!! Then you have your pimp Trudeau.. Trudeau and the LPC is squirming to get out of them..

I sure hope this sticks, these crooks can’t keep getting away with this. Butts and Trudeau have done incredible damage.
Without the Rebel and all of Sheila’s hard work, would we even be hearing about this story? I hope the destroying duo are both squirming and nervous. They have good reason to be. Canada is going to kick them to the curb this October. Maybe Butts will move to New York. I would celebrate if they both left Canada.

Mr. Butts is a private citizen, and none of this should concern the common people.

Why will Scheer not distance himself from Harper and his decade of social conservatives? Why is Scheer opposed to 2SLGBTQ+ pride parades? What about a woman’s right to choose to abort that problem within her?

By the way.. Have a great Labor Day weekend to our American Friends and our Canadian Patriots..

“The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership – the American worker.”

“Legacy of the Strike

For the strikers themselves, the short-term effects were very damaging. Many lost their jobs and were forced to leave Toronto. The long-term effects, however, were positive. After 1872, almost all union demands included the nine-hour day and the 54-hour week. Thus the Toronto printers were pioneers of the shorter work week in North America. Meanwhile, campaigns for an eight-hour day were already gaining in popularity, and would eventually take hold, in the United States.
The fight of the Toronto printers had a second, lasting legacy. The parades held in support of the Nine Hour Movement and the printers’ strike led to an annual celebration. In 1882, American labour leader Peter J. McGuire witnessed one of these labour festivals in Toronto. Inspired, he returned to New York and organized the first American “labor day” on 5 September of the same year. Throughout the 1880s, pressure built in Canada to declare a national labour holiday and on 23 July 1894, the government of Prime Minister John Thompson passed a law making Labour Day official. A huge Labour Day parade took place in Winnipeg that year. It stretched some five kilometres. The tradition of a Labour Day celebration quickly spread across Canada and the continent. It had all begun in Toronto with the brave stand of the printers’ union."

Butts is educated beyond his level of intelligence.
What has Scheer said about this ‘new’ scandal? Or is he afraid of being given a public notice too?

Everyone , even Ezra says Australia is the Gold Standard for Refugees; they should say the Gold Standard for B.S. as the Aussie’s have the same or more problems as other countries that take in Economic Freeloading Fake Refugees.

First of all if the Refugees are caught coming in by sea, they get sent to the Island of NAURU. They pay Nauru $50,000 to vet and take care of them. As we read, Nauru and Australia are ending that agreement ASAP.
Refugees that fly in are treated completely different, although I can’t find proof, they are likely more classy (speaking some English) than the boat people, so they may have a good chance of becoming citizens. The Religion of peace was teaching younger Muslims that Australia has two different Law systems, Sharia for Muslims and Australian Law for everyone else.

I also read that Muslims want a section of Australia for themselves, a separate country within Australia. That section seems to have been removed after being there over a year.
Lesson learned: Australia has the same Immigration problems as other countries.

Oh dear God and all that is holy, please please please make a Rebel shirt that says, “Oh please don’t throw me in the briar patch”.
We don’t think an alternative route for the Liberals is the answer, the real answer is an alternative government.
The Liberals have expanded too rapidly without any plans for democratic remediation.
Call the God damn election!

These people have zero remorse for anything.
“Pfft. Let’s blame the people who shame us because they’re just nay sayers for any kind of progressive change. There is nothing they can do about it”.
I hope Scheer passes a law that a forced removal of a person in parliament happens if found guilty of an ethics violation.
There used to be a bite in that law but it was amended. Heavily.
I wonder whose fault that is?

The Liberals have always been corrupt, But since JT took over the party corruption has expanded by leaps. I think JT is totally in love with corruption .You wont know this country in ten years if he wins too many elections.

The Government of Canada are liars and con artists flying the false flag of Liberalism, their real colors are NWO Marxism and they are intending to turn Canada into a Marxist style Mecca of the west, full of Muslims. First they have to get rid of the Christians.
Is there anybody that really believes Trudeau will ‘not’ win the next election. False poll results just to keep us calm. The election was planned by the UN before Trudeau was elected the first time. We are all just part of the grand plan, a nuisance to be rid of.

The liberals and the NDP leave ft Mac to burn to the ground after canceling a firefighter contract at peak fire season while refusing international help to assist with the out of control wildfire that burned well into the city from a tiny fire that started in the bush (…)”

And which group of Turdeau’s special little pets benefited the most from the Ft Mac fire? Hint: largest mosque complex and ethnostate in Canada built on the ashes. Hint 2: Jihad by forest fire is not exactly unheard of. Now you know why the firefighter contract was cancelled and not enough was done to stop the fire spreading into the city.

Both segments of this show deal with the mindset of the Libranos. Ethics don’t matter but the cause does. Laws are also for little people, not the elevated masterminds. They feel that they can’t be limited to ordinary ethics because of the “heavy burden” of leadership they bear. And if we peons can’t understand that, it just proves how exalted they are. They forget the words of Steppenwolf. “Remember if you plan to stay, Those who give can take away. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”
