Justin Trudeau's war on democracy and accountability has taken a new form: Parliamentary procedure reform, and not in a good way.
The liberals are trying to make some drastic changes to the business of government, first by doing a study to examine and recommend changes to House of Commons procedures. But the study will be fake because the fix is in. The recommendations were already part of an earlier discussion paper and, of course, they're awful.
The changes include introducing electronic voting, removing Friday House of Commons sittings, changing how opposition days and private members’ bills are handled, limiting time allocated for debate in the house and limiting debate in committees like the very one where these broad sweeping changes will be rammed through.
But those aren't even the worst changes.
Watch as I explain how hard Trudeau and the Liberals are working at not working, and show you how Conservative MP’s are fighting back filibustering the committee, seizing control and running down the clock to block the Liberals from voting on their motion.
Alberta is in a jobs and unemployment crisis, federal debt is spiralling out of control, illegal immigration is overwhelming our border towns, refugees are struggling to integrate and our allies are suffering terror attacks.
Yet, the liberals want to do less work when Canada needs them to work harder than ever before. Earlier this week it was revealed that Trudeau's family Christmas vacation to the Aga Khan’s private island cost Canadian taxpayers $127K.
The very least a silver spoon millionaire like Trudeau could do is actually show up to work and pretend to earn his taxpayer funded time off.
