PATHETIC: Trudeau Blames Ethics Commissioner For Moneybags Morneau Not Using Blind Trust

Who could believe this pathetic spin?

It was widely believed that Finance Minister Bill Moneybags Morneau had put his vast fortune into a blind trust, as would be expected of someone with the power to dramatically impact the economy.

It turns out, Morneau didn’t do that. As a result, the opposition parties are understandably ripping him for possible ethical issues, especially considering how Justin Trudeau made such a big deal of public officials needing to use blind trusts. Of course, Trudeau isn’t applying that same standard to Moneybags.

Now, Trudeau is trying to talk his way out of the growing controversy surrounding Morneau, and is blaming others for the mistakes and failures of his government:

As noted by the Globe & Mail, “The Prime Minister placed responsibility for the lack of a blind trust on the shoulders of Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson. “We have in Canada a Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner who is mandated to ensure everyone follows the rules … I can tell you the Minister of Finance worked extensively with [the Commissioner] when he came into this job and followed all her recommendations.” Mr. Morneau is facing a separate accusation of conflict of interest even as controversy lingers over his lack of a blind trust.”

Pathetic.

Think about how crazy Trudeau’s spin is. Morneau could face serious ethics questions because of his lack of a blind trust. He still refuses to say whether he owns shares in Morneau Sheppell. Yet, instead of fire Morneau, Trudeau pathetically tries blaming the ethics commissioners. At this point, how can anyone believe anything Trudeau says? He refuses to take responsibility for anything that happens in the government he leads, and he always throws other people under the bus. After all, if Trudeau had any integrity at all, Morneau would already be out the door.
