Liberal MP May Face Ethics Investigation After More India Trip Trouble

Raj Grewal is facing questions about securing invite for business partner to state dinner with Trudeau in India.

The fallout over the disastrous India trip isn’t over.

The National Post is reporting that Liberal MP Raj Grewal could face a formal ethics investigation after he secured an invite to a state dinner with the PM for the head of a company he profits from.

According to the report, “At the end of March, the National Post reported that Raj Grewal included Yusuf Yenilmez, head of Zgemi Inc., a company from which Grewal profits, on a list of guests to invite to receptions in India earlier this year that were attended by the prime minister and senior members of cabinet. The revelation prompted Conservatives and New Democrats to write to ethics commissioner Mario Dion, asking for a formal investigation into whether Grewal violated the Conflict of Interest Code that governs MPs.”

The report goes on to say that the ethics commissioner says info on the potential ethics issue ‘”meets the criteria” for him to take the steps towards an investigation.”

Both Conservative MP Stephanie Kusie and NDP MP Charlie Angus received a letter attesting to that from the ethics commissioner, after they had sent letters to the ethics commissioner, according to the report:

“Kusie and Angus both argued in their letters that Grewal’s conduct appeared to have directly contravened parts of the code that prohibit members from using their position to further their own private interests, or the interests of someone else.”

A pattern of trouble with ethics

The possible investigation into Grewal would only be the latest in ethics trouble for the Trudeau government, a problem that starts at the top with Trudeau himself. As the first PM found to be in violation of an ethics statue, Trudeau has set an example of dishonesty, deception, and disrespect for taxpayers that has infected the entire government.

This is a serious matter it is happening to often and questions are never answered by the Prime Minister or his members everything seems to be a joke with them.

Isn’t it an ethics violation for this guy to profit from outside sources while he is PM? Isn’t that the same kind of thing Morneau was investigated for?

what’s the point? We all know the liberals – especially those under trudeau, ARE ABOVE THE LAWS as they flaunt their criminal activities every day in our faces with NO FEAR OF ANY REPERCUSSIONS- especially from we Canadians. Oh well, they don’t serve us anyways and are doing everything possible to make us slaves for the new ‘canadians” as they continue to enrich their pockets while further picking ours. Boggles the mind that they use their businesses and positions to earn money and hide it from the tax man while trudeau hires more RevCan workers to go after we Canadians-… Read more »

on a side note, I notice the attacks on Canadians ramping up with verbal abuse, name calling , threats and false accusations against we who oppose them and also attacks, threats and so on at the opposition- primarily the Conservatives as the NDP are equally as corrupt, anti Canadian and have no fear of us either. Too late to wake up now. Canada is done and so are what is left of we actual canadians. Life for us looks bleaker every day now as we slide towards financial collapse, no longer sovereign and no longer nation status but rather a… Read more »

This one, as with others, will attract attention for only a very limited time and the government will, intentionally, simply ignore it and, after a time, it will fade from media scrutiny and, hence from the public at large and become a ‘nothing issue.’ Typical of this government.

Not only has Trudeau set the bar extremely low for morals, values , honesty, truthfulness and integrity, he has lowered the bar even further than past Liberal Leaders, to the point now that even backbencher MPs feel no compulsion to respect the rules and laws of Parliament and Canada. When Trudeau looks out at his fellow Liberal MPs, he sees a room full of mini Trudeaus. All of this corrupt behavior has been brought to parliament by the very same man who promised openness, freedom of speech and thought and transparency, PM Trudeau. Or as he should be called Trudeau… Read more »
