One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Four Trudeau

And now it’s five rotten potatoes. Five times our Princeling has broken the conflict of interest laws. 
 
Imagine if this was Trump — that foreigner that Canadians like to talk about!
 
Almost every one I talk to mentions Trump — not our dear Princeling — a foreign leader comes before our own leader. Condemnation based on rumour is fact on Trump but fact by independent Conflict of Interest Ethics Commissioner is dismissed on Trudeau. 
 
Imagine if CNN and MSNBC, Washington Post, New York Times, if they had this juicy material. They would have all gone bonkers by now— 24/7 coverage– the Republic would be finished. 
 
Methinks we have a big, big problem here in ‘honest Canada’.
 
Is it a defensive mechanism to ignore Trudeau’s law breaking or what is going on in this country? 
 
One thing is for sure. Judy Wilson-Raybould has been vindicated. Big Time!
 
The Ethics Commissioner said:
 
"Conclusion
 
I find that Mr. Trudeau used his position of authority over Ms. Wilson-Raybould to seek to influence her decision on whether she should overrule the Director of Public Prosecutions' decision not to invite SNC-Lavalin to enter into negotiations towards a remediation agreement. Because SNC‑Lavalin overwhelmingly stood to benefit from Ms. Wilson-Raybould's intervention, I have no doubt that the result of Mr. Trudeau's influence would have furthered SNC-Lavalin's interests. The actions that sought to further these interests were improper since the actions were contrary to the constitutional principles of prosecutorial independence and the rule of law.
 
For these reasons, I find that Mr. Trudeau contravened section 9 of the Act."
 
How do you like those potatoes? 
 
Trudeau Senior suspended our freedoms , inflated our debt, attacked Alberta’s right to their oil and gas , broke a promise to the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador , initiated wage and price controls , attempted to unilaterally change our constitution———
 
Trudeau Junior is continuing in this tradition by breaking his promises: one, to balance the budget, rather to increase it by tens of billions of dollars, and two, to run a transparent, ethical government. Furthermore he has imposed carbon taxes, helping to undermine the oil and gas industry by contributing to the demise of the energy east and Northern Gateway projects, spending billions on Trans Mountain pipeline, engaging in international initiatives that have the potential to see decisions concerning our country being made by outsiders, entertaining ideas that could limit our freedom of speech, and otherwise embarrassing our country internationally with his adolescent behaviour. 
 
Enough already! Justin Trudeau does not deserve to be Prime Minister of this nation.
