LIAR: Trudeau Officially Breaks “Open Government” Promise

The list of lies and broken promises from Trudeau is too long to count

For some time, it has been obvious that Justin Trudeau had no intention of keeping his promise of the most “open & accessible” government ever.

Now, that promise has officially been broken.

The Trudeau government has unveiled their long-awaited access-to-information reforms, and they have conspicuously abandoned a key promise from the 2015 campaign.

During the election Trudeau promised to apply the Access to Information Act to the Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Ministers.

However, the updated act does not include that change. The government is refusing to live up to their promise. As a result, the PMO and Cabinet Minister’s will remain out of reach of the Access to Information Act.

Rather than keep their promise, the government says they will “proactively” release more information. Of course, “proactive” means nothing, and it doesn’t change the fact that they broke their promise big time.

Making access even worse

It’s bad enough that the Trudeau government broke their promise. However, additional changes to the Access to Information Act make it even worse.

A new rule will let the Information Commissioner deny complaints by those who had their access request denied, or think the information they asked for wasn’t provided to them.

Trudeau’s arrogant & autocratic attitude

The Trudeau government has pulled off a huge bait & switch. After promising greater access, they broke the promise and clamped down further, making it tougher for the public to get info about what the government (that we pay for) is doing behind the scenes.

This is yet another manifestation of Justin Trudeau’s arrogant and autocratic attitude. He sees himself as above and separate from Canadians, and doesn’t believe he should ever have to explain himself to us.

The list of lies and broken promises from the Trudeau government is now too long to count, and is yet further reason Trudeau must be defeated.
