  1. Liberal Party should no longer exist.

    • Donna McDonald | August 14, 2019 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      From Alberta: In the last provincial election the Liberals picked up 0.97% of the popular vote. (That’s ZERO.97 percent)

    • Rene Levesque once called Liberals the streetwalkers of Canadian politics. They will never change because they are bankrupt.

    • Jonathan Fowler | August 14, 2019 at 7:25 PM | Reply

      Yes!! They should’ve been barred from the house of commons long ago, no minded subhumans

    • *all political parties should no longer exist.

    • @Jonathan Fowler – ” No minded subhumans ” the most accurate description of liberals I’ve ever heard….the entire world should ban Liberal politicians.

  2. How can the PM of Canada breaking the law be in the public’s interest?? We have an arrogant PM that has a rotten and corrupt entitlement mentality—a person who believes he’s above the law. And he doesn’t even have the decency to apologize.

  3. When you have never had to be accountable, or responsible for anything in your life you will act like Justin Trudeau ………silver spoon PM! Just a plain old fashion liar!!!

  4. I’d like to see punitive consequences for Trudeau since he has been found GUILTY of breaking the law.

    • Oscar Jetson – The court of public opinion will deliver their verdict on Oct. 21st.

    • Hopefully the elderly Quebec lady who questioned him on the immigrant funds owed to Quebec from the Federal Gov, the lady who he called a racist. I hope she will win her court case against him

      Many Women still Love this Guy. They think he’s cute.

    • @Donna McDonald love is blind and so are they.

    • No doubt, his defense strategy would be – too low on intelligence to know right from wrong, with it being very likely that he’d get off on such a strategy.

  5. I don’t agree with Mr Mulcair’s politics, but I do agree with his views on the PM’s ethics.

      So you want a conservative government who is even more pro corporate

    • @Muhammad Ahmed no, I want a government that respects the taxpayer and plays by the rules. That goes for corporations as well. Sounds a bit utopian, but I live in hope..

    • Gerry Persowich | August 14, 2019 at 8:59 PM | Reply

      @Muhammad Ahmed What could be more pro corporate than Trudeau breaking the law for his rich buddies SNC Lavalin?

    • Muhammad Ahmed | August 14, 2019 at 10:46 PM | Reply

      @Gerry Persowich Harper and the military industry and fossil fuel cartel

    “I broke the Law for the public interests of Canadians. I wanted to save jobs in Quebec… well mainly my job in Quebec! I need the votes…I will do anything for votes! “

      Hahaha brilliant

      “Judge, wait a minute here,I only robbed the store cuz I needed money for: rent, or food, or heating, or gas for my what’s the problem?” & of course the Judge will say “Why didn’t you just say so…of course you’re free to go!”

  7. Great assessment by Mulcair. Trudeau should be charged by the RCMP and obviously should step down. There are lots of other Liberals that could do a better job than him.

    Wow! lmfao He more or less admitted that he’s guilty but he did it for Canadians so it’s okay. I imagine many genuine liberal voters are seriously thinking about weather or not to vote liberal this coming election. There’s something wrong with anyone who would want a prime minister that has done the things Trudeau has done. It really looks like our laws are for everyone in Canada except for the ruling elitists like Trudeau

  9. The new four levels of government: executive, judicial, legislative, and liberal. Courtesy of… well you know.

  10. Mark Naccarato | August 14, 2019 at 5:03 PM | Reply

    If you vote Liberal, you should be ashamed of yourself. Please think.

  11. Tyrants don’t need no pesky laws, those are for the peasants .

    • I’ve got a little rat pie , rat stew mum

    • Ya, take it from Sadam Husein.  Whatever happened to that guy anyway?  Oh yeah, they strung him up.  Trudeau deserves the same fate for having done so much damage to Canada.

  12. Surprise… surprise… surprise! Trudeau breaking ethics is an everyday event!

    The only thing that Trudeau is protecting is the SNC lavalin payment to him and his cronies
    He is nothing but a liar and common crook

  14. Great response by Mr Mulcair. Spot on!

    • Yes, now that he’s no longer the leader of the NDP, I like watching him and appreciate the accuracy of what he has to say and how he presents his case.

  15. Tereigh Keating-Hart | August 14, 2019 at 5:47 PM | Reply

    Apologize??..for breaking the law??..Wow! I’ll try that next time if I get caught for speeding, or if I want to assault somebody, or if I want to shoplift. Just APOLOGIZE! & then you won’t get Arrested & go to Jail. Easy!!!

  16. As a cons. Tom you never should have let the Nimby Dumbasses POS! push you out your’re the only NDP I respect!

    I wonder if Jody Raybould can now speak, as he has been found guilty in this scandal?

    • THAT is a very interesting point. Publish your question more widely.

    • I hope that Mark Norman is the next to drop some bombs on him, although I think he may have already been paid off !!  I remember Norman saying there were things that every one show know, but it never happened !!

    • Jody is bringing out a book. To be published prior to the election in Oct.

  18. ThunderboltTangerine | August 14, 2019 at 6:04 PM | Reply

    So insane. He needs to stop non-apologizing and *resign*.

  19. If anyone wants to make the case for priveledge.They should look no further than Trudeau

  20. This either the 4th or 5th time Trudeau has broken the law. It’s time to LOCK HIM UP !!
