Ironically, Trudeau made the laughable ‘transparency’ claim while dodging a question about parties being transparent with data.
At a recent visit to Fort McMurray, Justin Trudeau was asked if political parties need to be more transparent about how they collect data, what they do with it, how they collect it, and whether the privacy laws should apply to that data.
Not only did Trudeau dodge the question, but – either unable to see the irony or ignoring it – he then made a laughable claim:
He said the Liberals have “raised the bar on openness and transparency.”
Watch Trudeau’s laughable comments below:
As always, Trudeau was being deceptive.
His claim about openness on donations and fundraisers ignores two huge facts. First, the Trudeau Liberals were the party that faced a huge cash-for-access scandal.
Second, at their fundraisers, the Trudeau Liberals confine the media to separate rooms, kick them out during large portions of the events, and ban them from speaking to guests.
That, plus the contempt the Trudeau government has shown for openness and transparency during their time in office makes Trudeau’s comments totally laughable, yet another reason nobody can believe a word he says.
