SURE… Trudeau Liberals Claim Stats Canada Didn’t Tell Them About Scheme To Take Our Financial Data

But they’re still defending it…

The Trudeau Liberals are claiming that Statistics Canada didn’t tell them about their plan to take the private financial data of Canadians without consent.

The Liberals are claiming – somewhat dubiously – that they only found out about it through news reports.

As reported by David Akin, “Navdeep Bains, the Trudeau cabinet minister responsible for Statistics Canada, said he first learned of the federal agency’s controversial plan to harvest the financial transaction data of potentially millions of Canadians as a result of media reports and not, as the law requires, in a written notification from the country’s chief statistician.”

The problem with this claim is that it makes the response of the Trudeau government seem very strange.

If it’s true that they were never told about it, then why is Trudeau defending the data steal?

And if it’s true that the head of Stats Canada didn’t follow the law in terms of notification, then why hasn’t the government taken steps to remove him?

Not only has the government not taken steps to remove the Stats Canada head Anil Arora, they’re defending him.

Here’s what Bains said:

“I think that Statistics Canada is a world-class statistical agency. It has a lot of respect internationally and within Canada as well … and I have a lot of confidence in the chief statistician.”

So, this all looks like an effort by the Trudeau Liberals to distance themselves from the massively unpopular data-steal plan, while doing nothing to stop the plan, and defending those who want to take our financial data without asking us.

In other words, it’s another scam from a dishonest government.

This fiasco is not entirely surprising when you think that one of the first actions of the current liberal government was to re-instate the forced participation of the long form census, (by way of threat of fine), that the pc’s had previously and wisely withdrawn from. The reasoning on behalf of the Libs then is the same as now. Better information , better government services. For those that have been sleeping under a rock , it actually means more government , more spending and waste and to hell with the peoples civil liberties, right to choose or privacy.

Bains is responsible for Stats Can and doesn’t know what they are doing? Demand his resignation. A lot of Liberals need to be drained from their swamp.

Take my word for it. One way or another Justin Trudeau is determine to get access into your private lives even if he uses the media to investigate which they will do dutifully without question.

Norbert Kausen

And I say he is a LIAR!!! Up to now, he and his ilk have fully and arrogantly supported exactly that! Now, with Canadians outraged by this travesty, he is suddenly back-peddling. Well, that just smacks of hypocrisy and of looking only at the votes melting away because of this nefarious act and his complete support of it! Trudeau needs to be kicked to the curb, NOW!!!

Is this a surprise to anyone? These crooks have been dishonest since Day 1. I think most of them think up devious ways to deceive the public on just about everything. Please don’t vote for these crooks again…EVER!!! I sincerely hope and pray Canada can survive on more year of these lieberals.

Norbert Kausen

He and his ilk are LIARS!!!
