Liberal Finance Minister Bill Morneau being accused of conflict of interest due to his French villa
The Liberal Party of Canada is in full panic mode with the recent revelations that its very own Finance Minister failed to disclose one of its private corporations, a French villa owned by Morneau wasn’t previously disclosed to the federal ethics watchdog. This is highly suspicious since Bill Morneau is looking at closing tax loopholes, but critics say his proposed tax changes such as income sprinkling will not affect his company.
The media reported that “Bill Morneau didn’t place assets in blind trust”
A BNN reporter in Ottawa also reported that only a few MP’s said they have full confidence in Bill Morneau, this is really bad for Liberals as they are seeing their approval numbers plummet across Canada.
Asked most MPs/ministers if Bill Morneau has their confidence post-French villa/no blind trust news. A few said yes. Many walked by #cdnpoli
