The Ethics Commissioner has opened an investigation into Liberal MP Joe Peschisolido. This latest scandal is the 6th ethics investigation involving Liberal MPs in the 4 years Justin Trudeau has been in power. So much for Trudeau’s openness and restoring Canadians’ trust in their government.
Conservative Party Leader and Leader of The Official Opposition, Andrew Scheer, posted this message:
"Justin Trudeau said he would be accountable and ethical, but he's not as advertised. After becoming the first PM in Canadian history to be found guilty of breaking federal ethics laws, Team Trudeau has followed his bad example. He's let you down before. Don't let him do it again."
Francis J. Tenta, in one of the replies to Mr. Scheer's post, wrote: "I've lived in Thailand for 3 years and had less corruption over there than this Liberal government."
The Ethics Commissioner’s office found rules violations in 2 other investigations into the Trudeau cabinet it has completed. The first ruling was that Trudeau broke 4 sections of the Conflict of Interest Act when he and his family vacationed with the Aga Khan on his private island in the Bahamas in 2016, making Trudeau the first sitting Prime Minster of Canada to be found guilty of violating federal conflict of interest rules. The second case (2018) found that Trudeau’s Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc broke ethics rules by approving a lucrative Arctic surf clam license to a company linked to a family member.
