Bardish Chagger, the leader of the Government in the House of Commons, voices her opinion about the House of Commons’ floor not being the appropriate place to discuss the government’s cash-for-access fundraisers.
According to her, it is okay to talk about legislation and the rules that are used to govern and the ideas that will help Canada overcome the challenges it is facing but political fundraisers are something that should be left to the political parties and not be integrated into a body which has to do with lawmaking and decisions.
Is this another one of the Liberal party’s ways to take attention off Justin Trudeau’s true activities? They already have a good enough grip over the media which is why most of what is negative about the Conservative party is flaunted on channels like CBC.
This is something that directly points to the lavish spending done for Justin Trudeau’s private fundraisers. Candice Bergen criticized Chagger and said that this comment reflects her lack of experience.
In the interview where she made the statement, it was clear that she was adamant on pointing out how the liberal party has been following the letter of the law. Chagger is considered a rookie minister in the Liberal government and it seems like a ploy to use her as a defense for the party’s unmentionable activities.
There have been speculations that she and Maryam Monsef have been used for the party’s dirty work. It is time though, for the Liberals to redeem themselves before they go too far with these cover ups.
In the interview she was also asked about the absence of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the question period, to which she was not able to give a solid answer. She shrugged it off by saying that the Prime Minister takes his job very seriously, just like he takes integrating and knowing the public opinion very seriously, which is why he was at work and not attending the Question periods.
