If you don’t it is really OK.
He broke the Conflict of Interest Act . Here is a segment of the report of the Conflict of Interest Commissioner in 2021 .
‘Following my examination of the documentary evidence, I am of the view Mr. Morneau afforded WE preferential treatment by permitting members of his ministerial staff to disproportionately assist a constituent. This unfettered access to the Office of the Minister of Finance was based, in my view, on the relationship between Mr. Morneau and Mr. Craig Kielburger, whom I found to be friends within the meaning of the Act. This treatment also constitutes, in my view, an impropriety under subsection 6(1) of the Act.
Accordingly, I find that Mr. Morneau has contravened subsection 6(1), section 7 and section 21 of the Act. ‘
And the Minister ‘forgot’ ‘about an investment in France in which he was involved and only released that information when the CBC asked questions about the matter. Here is part of the CBC report of 2017
‘Finance Minister Bill Morneau waited two years to disclose a private corporation that owns a villa in southern France that he shares with his wife to Canada’s ethics watchdog, CBC News has learned.
In fact, Morneau only disclosed to the conflict of interest and ethics commissioner Mary Dawson’s office after CBC News discovered its existence and began asking questions.’
But have no fear —-
He is being given ample opportunity to publicize his new book . Paul Wells of MacLean’s magazine renown has a review out on his book and is to interview him , so he brags, on January 23 , at Munk School , University of Toronto .
Apparently , Morneau devotes but one page to former colleague, Jody Wilson -Raybould . You know he was tangled up with Trudeau Jr. in that SNC-Lavalin Scandal —-trying to get Corporate people to be relieved of messy court proceedings and interfered with the normal course of justice that Raybould was trying to maintain in her Department of Justice.
So people in high places can do just about what they want but let a person like Tamara Lich stand up for our rights under the constitution and she is brought in shackles to a court to appear before a former Liberal Trudeau supporter.
No one to help her to be relieved of her court appearance and ongoing harassment.
