Justin Trudeau’s promise of “openness” and “transparency” is now nothing but a sad joke.
When asked by reporter Laura Stone why he is blocking National Security Advisor Daniel Jean from testifying on the discredited conspiracy theory blaming India for the Jaspal Atwal invite, Trudeau booked it up the stairs instead.
It was total political cowardice, as he had answered a question just a moment before. Clearly, he just chose to answer a question he found easy and ran from a question that was tough.

As Canadians have seen, when the going gets tough, Trudeau gets going… in the other direction away from accountability.
It’s the same attitude we see from Trudeau in Question Period, where he hides behind pathetic talking points, blames everyone else, and refuses to take responsibility for anything.
He knows that his India conspiracy theory has been discredited, and even his own ministers and MPs aren’t able to back it up. Yet, rather than admit an error and take personal responsibility for the total failure of his India trip, Trudeau keeps looking around for other people to blame.
So, instead of actually living up to his rhetoric on ‘transparency,’ Trudeau runs and hides, refusing to let his National Security Advisor testify and give answers to Canadians.
Yet, it seems that the more Trudeau flees from the truth and accountability, Canadians are fleeing from supporting him and his party.
That’s what happens when promises are broken over and over and over again. The Canadian people will not put up with endless betrayals.
