Be very careful what you wish for…

I don’t know what’s really going on surrounding this whole SNC-Lavalin scandal, but I do know one thing: there is no way in hell that a Conservative government would have let the company face criminal charges that would effectively put it out of business. NOT IN A MILLION YEARS!  Anyone who thinks otherwise hasn’t been paying attention for the last forty years.

With regard to SNC-Lavalin: the Kerala hydroelectric dam bribery scandal, the Libyan bribery and fraud scandal, the Arthur Porter kickback scandal, the Bangladesh Padma Bridge bribery scandal, the SaskPower carbon capture fiasco…in fact, pretty much all the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandals we are talking about today occurred between 2008 and 2014, when the Conservatives were in government led by Stephen Harper. Conservative MP Michelle Rempel has led the charge against Trudeau, despite being absolutely silent while it was all going on.

At worst, this is the Liberals acting like big business Conservatives, and in our outrage, we will likely punish them by electing a Conservative government in the fall. Think about what that means. Think about what Andrew Scheer has already said about privatizing health care. Think about his support for Doug Ford’s campaign in Ontario to destroy the social safety net. Think about his admiration for Donald Trump. Think about his sharing the stage with Faith Goldy and other avowed racists in support of the anti-immigrant “Canadian Yellow Vests”. Think about his opposition to fighting climate change. Think about the kind of Canada you want to live in.

Andrew Scheer has the gall to call for Trudeau’s resignation, knowing full well that he would have done exactly the same thing he is accusing Trudeau of. Conservative ideology simply would not allow him to act otherwise. They have never gone after big business and NEVER WILL.

Rather than rushing to judgement in the court of social media opinion, let’s let this thing play out and find out what really happened before we throw the baby out with the bath water.

The citizens of Ontario punished Wynn’s Liberals and got something infinitely worse with Doug Ford. MAKE NO MISTAKE – Andrew Scheer is no better, and on a national stage, potentially far, far worse.

Of course you can always think about voting for people who are legitimately concerned about the well being and rights of working people. To put it nicely into context check out “Mouseland” in the video section
