    When ethics violation lead to criminal investigations

    With the recent conflict of interest allegations being made against Bill Morneau regarding his sponsoring of a bill that would have changed pensions in Canada, however such bill could have been beneficial to Morneau’s company since he owns one of the country’s largest pension service providers. The opposition was quick to point out the obvious conflict of interest, Morneau could easily benefit millions from changes to Canada’s pension plan, for this reason Morneau has met with the Ethics Commissioner but it doesn’t pass the smell test, this seems like Morneau is greasing his tracks. Taking care of himself and screwing the citizens. Pretty much the definition of government since the…

    Canadians need to worry about their privacy and do you trust the government with your data?

    Do you think your private data is safe? A recent story posted on Global News[via] about a disturbing break of privacy has left many Canadians worried. The story titled “Appalling’ privacy breach as Canadian officials share sensitive info of Brazil woman with man in Ontario” is just one example how government agencies can’t be trusted with our data. When it comes to “data gathering” there are two types of information gatherers, commercial/private and government, and they must be treated separately. Much of the press condemns private information and then accepts government information when they should be doing the opposite. The crucial difference is that private information is gathered from voluntary…

    Bill Morneau the Liberal Finance Minister just can’t shake off bad press these days. Morneau is facing major scrutiny from the opposition party for his links to his private company Morneau Shepell a human resources services and technology company headquartered in Toronto. You see Morneau’s company is involved with many public and private companies that benefit from government grants and infrastructure projects, to make matters worst Morneau failed to inform the ethics commissioner that he still has shares in his company and not in a blind trust. This is a huge conflict of interest because Canadian taxes are going directly into Morneau’s company. One major hurdle for Morneau is his…

    Former Liberal insider: Trudeau will possibly receive backlash in the future, regarding a possible terrorist attack

    At a recent  Hart House Debate a panel of liberal experts gathered to debate Trudeau’s first two years in office while the debate circled mainly praising Trudeau, he was also condemned for failing to deliver on electoral reform. But an interesting comment was made by one of the panelists, claiming that Trudeau would be to blame if there ever was a terrorist attack in Canada. Karim Bardeesy, a former Director of Policy to the Premier of Ontario, started by stating that the Liberal Party is planning for multiple terms. He pointed out Trudeau’s struggles with NAFTA renegotiations. However, he sees this as a missed opportunity to explain the benefits of…

    Trudeau much like Obama made promises to create jobs but along the way people saw their taxes go up. President Obama had said his number one goal for 2010 was to create jobs, but the abundance of tax increases passed in his 2011 budget contradicted this objective. Higher taxes on businesses, upper-income taxpayers, and fossil fuels; an increased death tax; and Obama added new taxes to pay for health care that help kill jobs and slow economic recovery. Republicans in congress tried to reject these higher taxes and the rest of Obama’s business-killing agenda but ultimately failed.
