Trudeau Government To Force Through Biased Election Changes, Shutting Down Debate After Just Hours

Bill C-76 will change how elections are run in a way that will hurt the Opposition, and help the Trudeau Liberals. And now, they’re shutting down debate on the legislation.

Both the Conservatives and NDP are ripping the Trudeau government for planning to use time-allocation to shut down debate on Bill C-76, legislation that makes big changes to elections in Canada.

According to the Globe & Mail, “The government has given notice of a process called time allocation and it could invoke the procedure as soon as Tuesday, when MPs return to Ottawa. The motion would set a time limit for second reading of the bill in the House of Commons, forcing a vote to send the bill to committee for further study.”

The report notes that the Opposition critic on the elections file – Conservative MP Blake Richards – says the time allocation move means that there will be just “a couple of hours of debate on this,” which is almost no time at all to review a bill that will have a huge impact on the legitimacy (or lack thereof), of the next election.

Bill C-76 fails to close the loopholes that let foreign organizations interfere in our elections, while expanding the amount of money third-party groups (like the kind that usually benefit the Liberals) can spend.

Meanwhile, the legislation limits how much can be spent by actual political parties, which will disproportionately damage the Conservatives, who have been the most successful at raising money from grassroots Canadians.

As Richards told the Globe & Mail,“We have a governing party here that has moved forward with a piece of elections law that [has] elements in it that are very clearly designed to try to benefit themselves. I think all Canadians would have concerns with that.”

Nathan Cullen of the NDP said the Liberals are being hypocritical:

“They are in a crisis of their own making,” he said, adding that the Liberals are being hypocritical in light of their past criticism of the Conservatives for shutting down debate on elections legislation. “We want this thing to succeed,” said Mr. Cullen. “We also want to understand what’s in it too, which is not an unrealistic expectation.”

Biased bill, corrupted system

Bill C-76 is a terrible piece of legislation.

Not only does it seek to bias the next election in favour of the Trudeau Liberals, but it will severely damage confidence in our electoral system, which is being corrupted in the eyes of many Canadians.

The Trudeau Liberals once campaigned on strengthening confidence in the electoral system, yet they are now doing the exact opposite.

And now, they are only giving MPs a few hours to debate it. It’s a double-dose of anti-democratic behavior, and it’s yet another sign that the Trudeau government will break any promise in their pursuit of continued power.

These foreign controlled puppets acting as a government to destroy Canada are traitors not Canadian, and these laws should not be able to pass, but it appears we’ve been sold out. We do not have anyone that can do a thing about their furthering their rigging of Canadian elections and of course all the other things they have changed and lied about, and continue to get away with it. These same puppet owners, own the Lieberal/NDP alt left socialist type political parties around the world, most recently Syria and Venezuela, we regular Canadians will lose everything, to these rich dictators… Read more »

It is impossible to impeach a sitting Prime Minister in Canada. Too bad, just when we need a Governor General with cahones we get Ms Payette and a Parliamentary dictatorship. We cannot make Canada great again because it never has been great. It isn’t in us, quit fooling yourself. Citizens of great countries protect their own borders and in Trudeau’s Canada you cannot even talk of the threat. Damn, I miss free speech already.

Sounds like NICOLAS MADURO and others -like -dictators who rigg the voting system to suit themselves while ruining other parties from succeeding. A cowardly act that shows they are afraid of the public voters’ view of them(the gov).

Dictator Jihadi Justin Trudeau and their media ARE SO AFRAID OF US that we will not vote for them that they have to resort imo, rig the voting system to suit their prosperity.

The corrupt law breaking Trudeau Gov will stop at nothing from promoting themselves into gov again. They are secretly managing their ideas and radicalism with the media’ help as we speak. Having the conservatives or those who think and aware of the Trudeau’s gov daily menace and disaster to canada/ians, are the ones Trudeau gov are afraid of and want to shut down.

With the future of our democracy and the credibility of our Parliamentary system of governance hanging in the balance; what does Trudeau chose to do, he decides , that after finally realizing that the public wants a change in government; he chooses to rig the election system in favour of himself and his Liberal party. Trudeau has abandoned all the pretense of election reform and is now showing himself to be the true liar he really is; he campaigned on reforming the election system and making it more transparent. But now he has chosen to go to the dark side… Read more »

Is there any way this can be stopped? We can’t allow a dictatorship to become any further entrenched in Canada!

Tommy Hawk

Anything and everything the Liberals do is directly done for only one reason and that is the benefit the Liberals.

At least Al Capone was honest in his intentions and never once denied that what he did was for his own benefit.

I find it not only embarrassing but unacceptable that our government is more criminal in their intentions, backed by power, than one of histories best-known criminals.

Is that situation not somewhat odd, as well as embarrassing?

How do “we the people” band together to put a stop to his lunacy? I wish we had “mid-terms” like the States does where we could oust him out of office! He is deliberately out to destroy this nation and before this goes too far, we have to figure out a way to stop this. How do we do this?

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY AND ITS NOT LEGAL IN CANADA. What a sad 4 years its been for Canada. I held Canada so dear to my heart. What a beautiful country it was and beautiful people lived here. It all started with Pierre Trudeau, Justine’s father. He started bringing in people that did not assimilate with Canadian values. Justine must complete his father’s mission and stifle our freedom and free speech, imposing all these bills to protect a culture that does not adhere to our customs. Who would have ever believed that Canadian’s borders would be allowing illegal immigrants… Read more »

If you are an honest commentator you will post this – at least give the reader the right to know.

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, quacks like a cuck, then it is probably a duck.

These are the actions of a DICTATOR. This man is a dictator. Period. He has no understanding or interest in Democracy.
