“To oppose corruption in government is the highest obligation of patriotism.”
G. Edward Griffin
The latest reported “scandal” – see links below - in Canada is only one, of a number over the years. The last big one was the “Sponsorship Scandal.”
Now the latest reported “scandal.”
“Former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould said Friday she would not comment on claims that the Prime Minister's Office tried to pressure her to help SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution in pending legal action against the construction company....
“But at least one criminal defence lawyer was questioning Wilson-Raybould's privilege argument Friday, saying Prime Minister Justin Trudeau could easily waive it and allow his former justice minister to speak freely and truthfully on the matter.”
“SNC-Lavalin has been charged with fraud and corruption in connection with payments of nearly $48 million to public officials in Libya under Moammar Gadhafi's government, and allegations it defrauded Libyan organizations of an estimated $130 million...
“This is not the first instance of legal trouble for the publicly traded company. Indeed, its former CEO, Pierre Duhaime, pled guilty last week to a charge of helping a public servant commit breach of trust for his role in a bribery scandal around the construction of a $1.3-billion Montreal hospital.
“Duhaime left SNC-Lavalin in March 2012 after an independent review found that he had approved $56-million in payments to undisclosed agents.”

“Scandals” appear to be happening frequently in Canada, and not much appears to be done about them. See my links at end of article for more on this.
In closing the question needs to be asked by all of the people of Canada:
What is going on in Canada? And what is going to be done about it all?
I see a country being destroyed by those that rule
I see a country in the hands of fools
I see the peoples’ tax dollars being squandered
I see those in power giving perverted orders...
I see and ask, “Will the people ever say, enough”?
Or is the country too far gone, in all this stuff
Are the people conditioned to believe, they are “free”?
I am just telling you this, and saying: “What I See”
