Sajjan’s lies are not being forgotten
Harjit Sajjan has been avoiding giving any answers for his repeated lies about being the “architect” of Operation Medusa. But just because he’s trying not to talk about it, doesn’t mean it’s going away.
Today in the House of Commons, the Conservatives will be putting forth a motion declaring a loss of confidence in defence minister Harjit Sajjan.
The motion will be tabled by James Bezan – Conservative defence critic – and will give MP’s the chance to vote on whether or not they have confidence in the dishonest defence minister.
Considering Sajjan’s lack of honesty throughout his tenure as defence minister, it’s tough to see how any MP could honestly vote against the motion.
In addition to his false “architect” claim, Sajjan has deceived Canadians when talking about our CF-18 mission in Iraq, and he also falsely blamed the Conservatives for cutting benefits for troops in Kuwait – even though the benefit cut was fully the responsibility of the Trudeau government.
Not just a mistake
Sajjan’s pattern of deception shows that his comment about Operation Medusa wasn’t just a mistake. In fact, he claimed to be the “architect” of that operation as far back as 2015, and only stopped once he got caught.
That’s why today’s non-confidence motion is important. Canadians – and especially our men and women in uniform – must be able to trust in the person who leads our defence department.
Sajjan has showen that he can’t be trusted, and therefore he must go. Today’s motion will show who stands for the petty partisanship of the Trudeau government, and who stands for Canadians.
