Spina: It’s time for Terry to explain himself


In March and April of this year Terry Sheehan told us that he fully supports Justin Trudeau and that it was two female Liberal cabinet ministers, Jody Wilson-Raybould and MP Jane Philpott who broke the party’s trust regarding the SNC Lavalin Scandal.

“At no point in time did they direct her (Wilson-Raybould) specifically with a decision (to step in and resolve the corruption and fraud case against SNC-Lavalin),” Sheehan maintained. – Sootoday March 7, 2019

But just last week, we saw the report from Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion. That report is clear, and Justin Trudeau has been found guilty of breaking our ethics laws for a second time.

“The Prime Minister, directly and through his senior officials, used various means to exert influence over Ms. Wilson-Raybould. The authority of the Prime Minister and his office was used to circumvent, undermine and ultimately attempt to discredit the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions as well as the authority of Ms. Wilson-Raybould as the Crown’s chief law officer.” – Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion

Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott blew the whistle on Trudeau’s bad behaviour.  When they did, Terry Sheehan decided to jump on the Trudeau bandwagon and throw both of these leading female cabinet ministers under the bus.

It’s time for Terry to explain himself.

By his comments Liberal candidate Terry Sheehan has called the ethics of these two women into question.  The Ethics Commissioners report is clear and it is Justin Trudeau who’s ethics Terry should have been questioning. Terry should apologize not only to Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott, but to the residents of Sault Ste. Marie.

We trust that our Member of Parliament will represent the very best of us when we elect them and send them from our community to Ottawa.  Terry took that trust and acted on it in the very worst of ways.

As the election nears, the choice before Canadians has never been more clear.  We have a choice between a Prime Minister who abuses his power, bends the law for his friends, attempts to silence his critics and destroys their reputations.  And a Conservative government led by a Prime Minister who will uphold the rule of law, respect our democratic institutions, and help all Canadians get ahead.



  1. I think the majority of us reasonably rational people would agree that there has never been 2 more classy individual MPs; more professional, intelligent, truly thoughtful & considerate of Canadians & the rule of law. These 2 individuals are Ms. Jody Wilson-Raybould & Ms. Jane Philpott. In fact, I would go as far as to say that every other member of this scandal plagued, arrogant, self-serving, lieberal government, combined, would not have the ability to shine the shoes of these 2 very impressive women.
    But, there are too many Canadians out there who continue to drink the lieberal kool-aid and thus, these individuals do not appreciate the severity of the charges against justin trudeau and his gang of misfits that is this federal lieberal party. Polls show that a number of Canadians are not fully aware of the scandal surrounding the snc lavalen. Amazing !! What is going on is news all over the world, but, here, people responding to these polls don’t know what trudeau has been up to and that is, criminal-like behavior. Yet, Ms. Wilson-Raybould & Ms. Philpott are the ones that are being punished, having their reputation tarnished & junior is getting away scot free. Very, very sad……… !! The rest of us know better. Let your voice be heard on Oct. 21.

  2. Sonny, seems to me you had to drink the kool-aid on your old job. I remember a lot of silly talk from you about the infamous “Yellow Sticker” debacle, which since have been eliminated for personal use by the PC’s now running the province. I know its politics but try not to be like the others and forget the past in hopes of a future.

  3. Have you ever seen a PC that told the truth, did not appoint unqualified friends, and use their position to improve their post political life. It has not happened yet!

  4. Whose*

    He took his party’s official stance against the true ethical stance. This is so common in countries with first-past-the-post voting systems that it’s the default practice of most politicians. How about offering a solution to partisanship instead of attacking your opponent?

  5. Sonny….do you honestly believe Terry or any other Liberal would go against the PM? They will ALWAYS tow the line and so will you if elected.

  6. That is so true Sonny. The Liberals promised to do politics different by being open,honest and transparent. The only two Liberals to fully understand that memo was Wilson-Raybould and Philpott. I guess the rest of the party should buy a dictionary and look up the meaning of those three words. The rest of the party are JT’s sheep plain and simple. JT has now set the table that no one in his party will disagree with him for fear of being treated like they were.

    • Maybe you should realize all politicians are not to be trusted even these two who are using all this publicity to get re-elected.

      • Maybe you should realize those two that you are talking about showed more class than the whole Liberal Party did. They tried to live up to the party being open,honest and transparent but boy wonder and his number one BULLY Butts tried to discredit them and throw them to the wolves. I do not put much trust in any politician but I have a helluva lot of respect for THOSE TWO as you call them.
