Trudeau WON’T let the sun shine in on union bosses and native leaders — here’s why

Brian LilleyArchive

According to Justin Trudeau, the old government led by mean Stephen Harper, was all about keeping Canadians in the dark while he and his Liberals were going to be all about letting the sunshine in with their “Sunny Ways” and all.

As we’re finding out, that’s easy for a hypothetical government to say but harder for an actual government to do. Governments always want to keep information, not share it, and bureaucrats don't like the public looking over their shoulders.

I've told you about the ridiculous lack of transparency in this new Liberal era of Glasnost with the immigration department refusing to answer access to information requests on the Syrian refugee file because they’re too busy getting refugees into Canada, and how CBC refused to release basic financial information about how your money was spent during the election.

So when Trudeau promised openness and transparency, he apparently didn't mean that kind of openness and it seems he didn’t mean union leaders, native chiefs or band councils either.

Trudeau is getting set to undo basic transparency laws brought in by the Conservatives showing how public money, or money protected by special laws, was being spent. Trudeau doesn't like those laws after getting overwhelming support from union bosses and native leaders, so you should know exactly how he plans on repaying them for their support.

According to reports, when Parliament resumes in two weeks, Trudeau will move quickly to repeal the First Nations Financial Accountability Act and Bills C-377 and C-525.

The Financial Accountability Act allowed the public to see how the billions sent to band councils and reserves was spent. For the first time, those that live on reserves and taxpayers, would be able to find out.

Same with the union laws with Bills C-377 and C-525. The Media Party almost always calls them “anti-union” bills but the reality is they are anti union boss bills.

Unions resented being singled out but let's face facts, they’re the only organizations that are given legal protection to forcibly take dues money from members every week. You can't complain if it’s spent on politics you don't like thanks to the courts, and you can't opt out of paying either. Oh, and those billions collected each year are collected tax free because unions don't pay taxes on dues money.

In other words, the people forever calling for higher taxes don't pay tax because they have special status.

Don’t think that they’ll be giving something in return for that special status either. They don’t have to because Trudeau owes them and to pay them back, he’ll throw his ideals of openness and transparency out the window.

Same old Liberal politics.

That transparency act for Indian Bands is very important to the poor souls subjected to corrupt chiefs and councils, and there are quite a few of them for there are NO checks and balances on these guys and gals. A Sudbury based lawyer raised in Espanola Ontario, who went to school with Indians, has taken time to produce 50 essays on history of Canadian Indians, the treaties, conditions, politics etcetera and recommends the best thing is to get rid of the Indian Act. Here is the link for those who may wish to learn more and are game to wade through these very informative (realistic and not left liberal leaning) essays: http://nodifference.ca/essay . Good reading!

Sunny ways? More like Sunni ways methinks! Peasants know nothing. The elites know what’s best for everyone (choke, gag)!

I do also wonder if conservatives are being targeted for auditing in Canada in the same way they have been in the U.S. Maybe a totally baseless question but I had a friend who makes a vary modest income. This girl who owns no home and no car just recently get audited for nothing I can see as a red flag other than she gives quite liberally (no pun intended) to her church. The audit done found that she owed $5. It did start the wheels of my mind to start slowly grinding and asking questions.

It’s easier to manipulate the public when information is restricted. Misinformation is better yet. The Liberals are masters at both. This is their formula for maintaining power. Changing the Elections act will be their fall back and fail safe. Democracy in Canada is under attack, Canadians will have to fight to maintain it.

It’s important to remember where Trudeau’s values lie. He admires the Chinese dictatorship. Don’t be surprised as he moves in the direction of one party rule.

Here’s an idea. How about unionizing the band council office? Have the two parties fight each other.

As I was pondering this story and other stories posted on the rebel I was remembering one story that was shared about how when Trudeau entered one civil service office and the crowd erupted with applause causing an aid to Hilary Clinton to express disgust at the open disloyalty among the civil servants. Then one thought hit my mind. Why was there so many liberal leaning civil servants in one office? Was there not any conservatives? As much as I try to avoid conspiracy theories I have to admit wondering if they don’t have some method of targeting liberals for preferential treatment. It seems plausible in light of a short while back when we saw in the U.S. that conservatives appeared to be being targeted for being audited by the I.R.S. which lead to an investigation and people refusing to testify. We wonder why the left is becoming so pervasive in society despite their mediocre to poor record of governing and there has to be an explanation. This should be looked into.

Bravo…I think his expression would be exactly the same as usual…he always looks stunned….

This is corrupt and crass influence peddling…‘vote for me and I will make it worth your while’.

I forgot, when you’re using somebody else’s hard earned money, you don’t give a rat’s ass how it’s spent I guess. If Trudeau had any respect for Canadians he would pursue what PM Harper started regarding First Nations Chiefs, you keep us in the dark, the funding is halted. Repealing this bill makes no sense at all, in fact this bill should have been introduced years ago & maybe the people on the reserves would be better off now. If it costs money, they’re all in favor & if it will or might save some money they’re all against it, what a bunch of morons & they’re running the country, watch out!!!

All this makes me see red. Trudeau stands there in front of the Canadian flag telling his worshipers how his gov’t will be so transparent & in the next breath, he says he will repeal the bills that PM Harper brought in & were passed for transparency purposes no less. The problem is these people fund your campaign & want to be repaid if you win & that’s another reason Trump is so popular, he can’t be bought by anybody because he’s paying his own way. As for First Nations, they owe it to the taxpayers who pay their bills to open up their books for all to see, that’s the least they can do & Trudeau should be enforcing that bill, not squashing it for crying out loud, that’s a no brainer, Mr. Know It All. Someone posted on another thread that Trudeau’s Lib gov’t was just a carry over of PM Harper’s gov’t, but I don’t see how you can come to that conclusion when Trudeau is reversing almost everything PM Harper achieved & to the detriment of our country I might add & that’s what he calls “real change”. We know how that’s working out under Obama.

Bravo Zulu, frankly I don’t even think his hair is all that nice.

Any time the gay boy with nice hair has his lips in motion, he is lying.

If someone could him with an egg and then capture his expression……….

I bet it would be priceless.

Maurice. You don’t have to have a license to practice psychology in most provinces. You’re quite qualified!

What Trudeau’s done – lying in an election campaign – is a Breach of Trust, a chargeable offense.

“A guy is walking along a Vancouver beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish. The guy thinks for a moment and says, ""I want to live forever.”"
“”Sorry,”" said the genie, ""I’m not allowed to grant eternal life.""
“”OK, then, I want to die after JT’s Liberals balance the budget and eliminate the debt.””
""You crafty little bastard,"" said the genie."

Justin Trudeau is an arrogant, self-righteous, amoral nincompoop with hubris the size of Mt. Everest and the IQ of a potted plant. In fact, I believe he may even be somewhat of a sociopath. Of course, I’m not qualified to make that analysis, but it would be interesting to hear what Dr. Phil had to say about him.

I think that both the Unions and the Liberals are run by the Mob. I wonder how much money they get paid for each, so called, Refugee they let into the country.

Turdeau is a liar of the highest order. This POS lied his way throughout the entire election and got away with it. I wonder how the low information voters feel about their Shiny Pony now, if any of them even understand what this two faced jerk is doing.

It should be simple… voluntary payments = voluntary disclosure… mandatory payments = mandatory disclosure.

Libranos are all about covering for their special interest clients – it’s not a party with a political ideology, it’s a porcine power brokerage that trades political power an influence for partisan alignments – it is a notorious insider kleptocratic political network and PM Sunny ways is powerless to change this basic character which defines the party which crassly uses him as a front to continue business as usual.

I can’t believe that Trudeau is repealing the Financial Accountability Act since it’s the only way native people can know what their chief and councillors are up to. Here’s an account of the mess that the Makwa FN got into because they didn’t pay a 3,380.89 firefighting service bill with the small town of Loon Lake, in spite of the fact that three of their councillors pulled in about $360,000.00 and their chief, about $102,000.00 including salary and other payments:

So the useless losers can drink away 16B of our money and we can’t even audit the file.

wtf Trudeau? Two steps forward and three backwards. Your pockets are already full. Why on earth do you want to hurt those in the private sector that pay for everything. Time to eliminate the cancer, permanently.

The embarrassment to Canada is at it again. What disgusting moron!
