Trudeau Press Secretary Charged By Ethics Commissioner

A mere $250 fine was doled out.

The latest Liberal to be involved with an ethics issue is Alex Wellstead, a press secretary for Justin Trudeau.

The Ethics Commissioner posted a notice today, revealing that Wellstead has been charged $250 for “failing to disclose a material change related to assets within 30 days after the change.”

“Alex Wellstead, a press secretary at Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau’s Office, has received a #penalty of $250 from the #EthicsCommissioner for failing to disclose a material change related to assets within 30 days after the change. ( #CdnPoli”

As you can see, the penalty is a pathetic $250, which doesn’t do anything to dissuade ethics problems whatsoever.

And what can we expect from a corrupt system where the punishments applied to politicians are set by the politicians themselves?

These penalties need to start at $1000 and rise according to the politician’s position as well as the infraction. For people like the PM, start at $10,000 for minor cases and and go up rapidly. Interference like trudeau did with Jody and Jane, $100,000 and banned from Federal Government property of any sort for one year. No plane rides to go surfing. Fly Business class. No upper limit.

$250. That reminds me of Ezra Levant’s “swear jar.” Drop in a buck when he swears. The $250 goes into the Liberal “ethics violation” jar. When it’s full; the boys have a little party, and have a good laugh at us Canadian suckers.

Can he claim that fine on his income tax?


Shame on those politicians. Every darn one should lose their job if convicted….what is $250 to a government employee? Just a crying shame. Can’t Canada do better?
