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.
