Some Liberal MPs reportedly want Morneau out of the Finance Minister post.
With numerous polls showing Bill “Moneybags” Morneau to be an incredibly unpopular politician, it seems that some Liberal MPs are starting to worry that he could damage their re-election chances.
According to the Hill Times, one Liberal MP said (anonymously) of Morneau’s ethics issues and the Paradise Papers, “It’s going to be a little slow growing cancer that starts to eat away at people’s impressions of what you are, and who you are, and you don’t want to be on the wrong side of that when people make a choice.”
The report also notes that “One Liberal MP and one former senior Liberal both said Mr. Morneau should be shuffled to another portfolio and said the Liberal Party should disassociate itself from Mr. Bronfman.”
Liberal MPs can’t acknowledge that the problem starts at the top
It seems clear that the Trudeau Liberals – always ruthless when it comes to defending their political interests – will seek to manipulate public perception and give the appearance that Trudeau is separate from the issue of entitled elites exposing the government’s true image.
Of course, the problem starts with Justin Trudeau.
Justin Trudeau is a total elitist, who knows nothing about life in the middle class and is enacting an agenda designed to enrich his fellow elites at the expense of middle class and working class Canadians.
Even if Morneau was shuffled out and the party distanced themselves from Bronfman, that wouldn’t change the fact that Trudeau refuses to crack down on offshore tax havens, and instead tried taking money from community businesses.
And it wouldn’t change the fact that Trudeau is alienating our traditional allies while seeking a “free trade” deal with China that would be devastating for our economy and national sovereignty.
This means that a cabinet shuffle and/or putting rhetorical distance between the Liberals and Bronfman won’t do anything to change the biggest problem with the government: Justin Trudeau.
That’s why the opposition needs to keep the pressure on and keep making the point that the government takes their arrogant and elitist attitude from the top. Throwing Moneybags overboard might make many Canadians – including myself – happy, but nothing will really be changed until Trudeau is defeated.
