Amid WE Scandal, CBC Writer Portrays Trudeau As Victim Of His Own ‘Status,’ Manages To Shoehorn Harper Into Conversation

Poor Justin.

Over $1 billion in annual funding sure gets you a lot.

Amid the WE Scandal, which worsens by the day, leave it to CBC to put the most pro-Trudeau spin on things while also somehow managing to mention Stephen Harper.

Because, you see, Justin Trudeau really is the victim here, according to CBC writer Aaron Wherry. If only Trudeau wasn’t so famous, well-connected, and didn’t have so much ‘status,’ none of this would have happened:

“One other odd thing about two of those episodes (the Aga Khan and WE) is how you can trace them back to Trudeau’s own unique life and status.

Stephen Harper didn’t have to worry about getting invited to the Aga Khan’s island and his mother and brother weren’t celebrities.”

“Of course, if you’ve lived a rarefied life — and you decide to go into politics — it’s presumably all the more important that you check yourself on a regular basis.”


I think the major link between most of the Harper government’s worst moments was an incredible desire for control.

There’s possibly also a through line linking the low points of the Trudeau era.”

This checks all the boxes of a ‘CBC defence of Trudeau’.

It’s got the ‘justification,’ casting Trudeau as a victim of his own status.

It’s got the comparison to Harper, despite Harper having LITERALLY NOTHING TO DO with this scandal.

And it’s got the attack on Harper at the end.

As you can imagine, Conservatives slammed Wherry’s terrible take:

“You are right. Justin is the victim here. He inherited millions and is surrounded by celebrity family members. His DNA and status require he break the law to profit himself.

Brought to you by the CBC.”

“It’s not Trudeau’s fault he’s unethical. According to Mr. Wherry, it comes with being a celebrity. All the more reason to stop electing people because of their famous last name.”

The ongoing fact that we pay so much money for what is essentially government propaganda is a disgrace.

The big question is what consequence or punishment will Trudeau receive >. At least, he should be made to step down immediately as he cannot be trusted. Three strikes and he should be out. Someone also needs to investigate his Foundation as the money certainly increased since he took office. How much of that and other expenses should be repaid to us taxpayers who now have $1 trillion. A million from Trudeau and half that from Moprneau for his lousy misuse of our money would help. These Liberals get away with too much and no penalty. Thank you, Spencer. Keep… Read more »

Sell the CBC off to the highest bidder……oh that’s right, I forgot, there will be only one bidder…..Tru-dope!!


WOW! Talk about spinning the lib propaganda from the cbc. If they only had a clue about how bias they are continually giving trudo & the libs free passes & making excuses for him.
How many will fall for this & soak up the ‘poor justin’ rhetoric spewed by the left paid media?

Stop watching the CBC!!! You will feel much better for it…..


How many other associations Trudeau manages,and how much money communist China puts into it.Arresting two innocent Canadians is probably all smoking mirrors to protect our corrupt prime minister.Who knows?Everything seemed to be ridden with lies.The Canadian government propaganda printing machine is doing a good job keeping Canadians confused and blind.
