‘TRANSPARENCY’: MPs Will Get Just 7 Minutes To Question Ethics Commissioner Pick

The Trudeau government didn’t consult the opposition, and is giving MPs almost no time to ask questions. That’s a long way from what was advertised as the most “open and transparent” government ever.

MPs in committee will have just seven minutes each to ask questions of Mario Dion, the Trudeau government pick for Ethics Commissioner.

That’s a minuscule amount of time, and the CP notes that NDP Ethics Critic Nathan Cullen pointed out Dion will be on the job for as many as 7 years.

7 minutes for questions, 7 years in office.


There are also concerns about Dion’s prior performance in the bureaucracy:

“Also problematic is Dion’s past as the public sector integrity commissioner, where the auditor general found Dion had challenges following through on investigations, Cullen said. Those findings are relevant given the unfinished Dawson investigations, he added.”

The Trudeau government definitely doesn’t want Dion answering too many questions, especially since the opposition and many Canadians are demanding to know how he will handle the investigations into Trudeau and Morneau, and are very concerned that he didn’t commit to continuing those investigations.

So much for openness and transparency.

He is beyond evil. What’should he afraid of, obviously this guy is no good if twinkle toes doesn’the want him questioned.


We can expect that Mario Dion will be obediently following instructions from Trudeau and answering valid questions with typical Liberal crap. Um, ah , ah, ummm, er. Trudeau is very likely offended that anyone would DARE to question his choice of servant. Arrogance at it’s finest.

When will Webster’s Dictionary start showing the definition of arrogance as Justin Trudeau?

Trudeau and the Liberals are disturbingly starting to act like the North Korean dictator more each day. This is getting dangerous.

Yes it is and it seems we are literally incapable of stopping it. I see the elections in NFL and rage inside


I consider Trudeau worse then the N.K. leader right now. Trudeau destroying his own country, while the N.K. protecting his country. Quite a difference. SO SAD.


Canadian corruption. We are so smug that we don’t even recognize or name it………….I imagine Trudeau is laughing at Canada. But we seem to like it! Liberals won 3/4 elections this week.

This clown was elected on a promise to legalize marijuana. After that – the voters heard nothing and furthermore, don’t care. Unless Scheer comes up with something just as attractive to those voters, we are doomed. Just my opinion.
