Morneau Guilty Of Violating Elections Act, ‘Punishment’ Is Laughably Weak Fine

$300 is probably the price of a spoon at his French Villa.

Former Liberal finance minister Bill Morneau has been found guilty of violating the Elections Act.

The violation was Morneau promoting Liberal candidates during an official government event in which he was acting as finance minister.

In one case, Morneau spoke at an event on July 29, 2019, where he praised Liberal candidate Anita Anand.

Then, on August 27, Morneau was at an official government event when he took photos with Liberal candidate Michele Fisher.

Morneau’s ‘punishment’ is laughably weak.

He will have to pay a $300 fine.

That’s probably what one spoon costs at his French Villa, so he isn’t going to miss the money.

It also shows what a weak incentive the system has for politicians to do the right thing.

Of course, that’s no surprise, since the corrupt system was created by the politicians themselves.

They created the legislation that ‘punishes’ them, so it’s no surprise they made it so weak.

Yet again, we see that the system is designed to prop up and defend the elites, while betraying and attacking the rest of us.

Totally outrageous, while Canadians have faced fines of $800 to $1200 ( or more, FOR ‘REPEAT OFFENSES’) for walking in an empty public park, during the lock down, just to ease the boredom or exercise with their children, or dogs, or both…[email protected]#$%…..
Whats wrong with this picture ?!!!

And Canadians better wake the heck up and see what’s really going on here…

So the treasonous act of “tweaking” a federal election only warrants a $300 fine? Good to know … nudge, nudge; wink, wink.

My takeaway from this is that the current Liberal government is illegitimate.

Wait until Moroneau gets settled into his post at the OECD, another pit of leftists promoting their “Build Back Better” agenda. These folks are so emboldened by seeing Antifa and BLM rioters unchallenged that they will continue to ignore the will of the people as they seek a one-world socialist government run by elitists like themselves.
