VIDEO: Scheer Says Trudeau Ordered Elections Canada To Change Election Rules, Before Legislation Has Even Been Passed

That’s not how our democratic system is supposed to work.

In Question Period, Andrew Scheer asked why the Trudeau Liberals have ordered Elections Canada to impose changes to Canada’s election rules when legislation to change those rules hasn’t even been passed yet.

According to a report, the head of Elections Canada “Stéphane Perrault told MPs Tuesday that even though Bill C-76 has yet to face serious scrutiny in Parliament, Elections Canada is working on plans and contingencies to make sure the agency can apply the changes once approved.”

As you can imagine, beginning the process to impose changes before legislation has been passed is a big problem.

On Twitter, Andrew Scheer said the Liberals are “rigging the rules.”

“When the PM starts losing, he responds by rigging the rules to benefit the Liberal Party. He’ll use taxpayer dollars to campaign with government spending announcements, travel, and advertising ahead of the next elections, while muzzling his opponents.”

He challenged Trudeau to explain why the Liberals are trying to rig the system, and why they are refusing to stop the flow of foreign money into the electoral process.

Trudeau responded by – you guessed it – attacking the previous Harper government.

Watch the exchange below:

This is all happening as Trudeau’s poll numbers fall to a new low, with his net approval rating sinking to -21. The more desperate he gets, the more he tries to rig the rules in his favour and damage our democracy to maintain his grip on power.
