  1. They are hiding something much deeper than political interference.

      “Truth knows no fear”
      obviously lots of liberal fear
      justice system broken?🇨🇦
      obstruction of justice investigation required on behalf of ALL Canadians.
      1. 9 witnesses still need to speak and tell the whole truth.
      2. There never were 9000 jobs at stake
      (except thousands of jobs in Western Canada)
      3. SNC was never going to leave.
      4. justice for Jodie and Jane
      MP smoke and mirrors 💨
      Thank you Mr. Mulcair. Truth.

    • Hey it’s the scary eyes guy.

  2. Fire the guy and put him on trial

  3. Typical French corruption…we have it in Louisiana too

  4. So what are they doing announcing their guilt and then flaunting their ability to not suffer consequences? Is this to minimize the abuses of power in the eyes of citizens so they will be more complacent and tolerant of greater abuses forthcoming? Was his first ethics violation without much uproar just the system testing for what they can get away with?

    Something has to be done about a majority government also having a majority on committees. It’s unbalanced, the majority government shouldn’t get a total majority throughout Parliament.

    • No effing kidding eh.

      We looked into ourselves. All clear!

    • Susan I totally agree. And furthermore we need to get rid of First Past Post. We need an electoral system where the party in power has more than 30 or 35% of the population support. 70% of the population always has not voted for the PM.

    • How absolutely true that is . But I think it’s time to Dethrone this Tator tot .He needs to go back to the grill .

      As then adage says ” Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”.

  6. Trudeau has corrupted Canadian politics to a whole different level as we’ve seen today. He’s dragging the entire Liberal Party down with him—now they are ALL involved in this cover-up.

    Trudeau has “the political depth of a finger bowl” – quote from someone a lot smarter than he is; Jason Kenney

  8. of course he’s protecting que. Que/Ont run the country we in the west just pay and pay by the time this old senior citizen votes its over.

    Disagree with Tom’s politics but he has done an awesome job commenting on this situation.

  10. Wow. That was scathing! I would hope all Canadians could hear this.

  11. Nice commentary. And I’m a Conservative.

    They’re all corrupt…all Canadian parties

  13. Can I go to Walmart and walk out with a cart full of food and say I’m not a thief I stole this to feed my family!! Do you think I would get away with that answer!! He does not speak for this Canadian!!

  14. So, does an accused get to stand up in court and say “I agree with the conclusion of the police, but I disagree with decision of the court, so I won’t be going to jail”? I would love to see that……..

  15. Breaking the law in Canada is the new normal. Just look at the boarder!

    “Cover up! Trudeau above the Law! Trudeau thinks he is the Law!” And all Liberal Members of Parliament are complicit in the Cover up! Wake up Canada, we are sliding down a slippery slope into an Ethical and Economic Wasteland! Trudeau Must GO!!!!!!

  17. Remember this on October 21 and vote them out

  18. The source of this problem is that Trudeau is so directionless and inept. He governs by appearances, not by principles. He is the worst PM ever. Please, for the love of Canada, do not re-elect a Liberal government led by Trudeau.

    • He’s being told what to say. He doesn’t actually have any ideas of his own. He’s not smart enough for that.

  19. Very nice work Mr. Mulcair.
    Thanks for pointing out these problems.

  20. The Liberals are so corrupt, always have been!
