Con­ser­va­tives de­mand PM re­sign

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Opinion -


Cana­di­ans were shocked to hear the ex­plo­sive tes­ti­mony of for­mer At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jody Wil­sonRay­bould on the SNC-Lavalin af­fair. Her story was one of in­ap­pro­pri­ate, and po­ten­tially il­le­gal, pres­sure brought on her by the high­est of­fi­cials of Justin Trudeau’s gov­ern­ment and Justin Trudeau him­self – all to let a Lib­eral-con­nected cor­po­ra­tion off the hook on cor­rup­tion charges.

Justin Trudeau sim­ply can­not con­tinue to gov­ern this great na­tion now that Cana­di­ans know what he has done. Ms. Wil­son-Ray­bould’s tes­ti­mony tells the story of a Prime Min­is­ter who has lost the moral au­thor­ity to gov­ern. A Prime Min­is­ter who al­lowed his par­ti­san po­lit­i­cal mo­ti­va­tions to over­rule his duty to up­hold the law. A Prime Min­is­ter who has al­lowed a sys­temic cul­ture of cor­rup­tion to take root in his of­fice.

An­drew Scheer and Canada’s Con­ser­va­tives are call­ing on Justin Trudeau to re­sign. Fur­ther, we are ask­ing that the RCMP im­me­di­ately open an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the nu­mer­ous ex­am­ples of ob­struc­tion of jus­tice that were de­tailed in the tes­ti­mony.

Canada should be a coun­try where we are all equal un­der the law. Where no­body – re­gard­less of wealth, sta­tus, or po­lit­i­cal con­nec­tions – is above the law. I be­lieve we can be that coun­try again.
