“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

BRIAN PECKFORD -- Trudeau Family Scandal ... ‘We’ Are All In This Together ...

We are all in this together ... has been the rallying cry for helping each other during the pandemic. Prime Minister (Justin Trudeau) has himself used the phrase.

 

Little did we know that there lurked nearby, really in our midst, another ‘WE”, this one more ominous. It seems clear now that the Trudeau family and the WE charity were very, very close.

 

And in and of its self, no problem. Until ... there is money changing hands, and involving our money, taxpayer’s money, money from our Federal Government.

 

It has now been revealed that the Trudeau family, mother, brother, wife have all been involved with the Charity. Mother and brother received over $300,000 in speaking fees from the Charity over the last four years. Meanwhile the Charity was getting contracts from the Government.

Global News reports:

 

Then on Thursday, WE Charity confirmed that the prime minister’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, had been paid a total of $312,000 for speaking at 28 WE events between 2016 and 2020. His brother, Alexandre Trudeau, was paid $40,000 for eight events in the 2017-18 academic year, according to the charity.’

 

The wife of the Prime Minister received fees from the Charity before Justin even became Prime Minister. And she currently hosts a podcast, for the charity, it is reported by various media.

 

And as we all know the PM‘s government had awarded a $900 million contract to the WE charity --  no tenders  ... just here you are, all yours!

 

A Conflict of Interest investigation is presently underway. But now the Opposition Conservatives are calling for a criminal investigation concerning the whole affair as the information of the extended family involvement became known.

 

The Opposition is referring to Criminal Code Section 121. A section titled "frauds on the government," says it's an offence for someone to give an elected official or any member of their family "a loan, reward, advantage or benefit of any kind as consideration for co-operation, assistance, exercise of influence or an act or omission in connection with the transaction of business with or any matter of business relating to the government."

 

It has been revealed that the PM did not recuse himself when the vote concerning the $900 million came before Cabinet.

 

This as all just too much ... especially when one considers that Justin Trudeau has already been found guilty four times by the Conflict of Interest/Ethics Commissioner for breaking our Conflict of Interest laws.

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by Rates.ca, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
