Can we focus back on PP / Milhouse same-sex marriage something something hidden conservative agenda outrage? Priorities man!

CTV News covered the subject extensively yesterday. I would think that what appears to be illegal behaviour and even potentially treason from elected MPs and appointed senators to the point where it may have impacted our foreign policies and our democracy would be cause for discussion and concern.



Now Freeland is refusing to divulge the names of who is on that list. A reminder that the Liberals also voted against having this foreign interference inquiry and tried to squash it with the special rapporteur farce.

Interesting reaction from the other side of the House, which makes me think Parliamentarian members beyond the governing party have egg on their face:

Our government takes treason very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, seriously. But stop asking about it, it's racist and uncanadian. Or something.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/mps...icop-1.7224132

Government won't commit to releasing names of MPs who allegedly conspired with foreign actors

Senior cabinet ministers wouldn't say Tuesday if the government is prepared to release the names of parliamentarians who are alleged to have conspired with foreign governments and to have consciously shared sensitive information with their agents — conduct that one expert says could amount to treason.


The committee said an unknown number of parliamentarians inappropriately communicated with foreign missions ahead of a political campaign and accepted money from foreign governments or their proxies.

Unnamed parliamentarians also provided foreign diplomatic officials with "privileged information on the work or opinions of fellow parliamentarians," knowing that the information could be used to manipulate some other MPs and senators, the report said.

The names of the alleged parliamentary conspirators are blanked out in the report. They've been replaced with the words, "This paragraph was revised to remove injurious or privileged information."

"The guarantee I can give to Canadians is our government takes foreign interference very, very seriously," she said.

When asked if she could guarantee that the Liberals will eject from their caucus any parliamentarian found to have engaged in the activities cited in the report, Freeland would not make that commitment.

The party that's mastered rabbling and breathing moistly on Trudeau for everything political in Ottawa suddenly has nothing to say in one of the most damning scandals in nine years of Liberal tenure?

If you say so.

Must be mentally tough to completely avoid criticizing the actual governing party to literally focus solely on conservatives all the time.

Foreign interference committee and inquiry that the governing party voted against and tried to kill finds that several MPs may be witting participants in aiding it, finance minister refuses to divulge the names of said MPs.

"Did PP say anything during question period? No? What's he hiding? Conservatives strike again and have egg on their face "

If you say so.
To be clear, I have no idea if other parties have members engaging treasonous acts. But #### them all and hang them all if that is the case.

Not worried about partisan posturing in the face of treason. I would absolutely prosecute them all.

It is pretty ridiculous if your first reaction to this news is trying to throw out partisan "but what aboutisms".

Not really. Multiple parties are going to be involved in this.

Or should we stick with just the liberal narrative at your convenience?

If the conservatives are involved too, we should be extremely concerned beyond what they normal project and gaslight. Especially those of you who voted for them.

Wait…

If other parties have members engaging in treasonous acts, “#### then all and hang them all”…

But if anyone so much as suggests other parties may have members engaging in treasonous acts… “RIDICULOUS WHATABOUTISM!”

Yeah. For sure. Those are two normal thoughts a normal person would be able to keep in their head at the same time. Definitely.

If you want to continue to be manipulated by the same old trope have at er’. I am more concerned about the freight train that is coming down the tunnel.

Economy, Unrest, Military, Trump. Those are all things more important than a non issue. The cons are not repealing anything.

I was just pointing out the irony of you complaining about fear mongering while simultaneously fear mongering about the hypothetical rapture that you’re predicting.

Calm down, I don’t have a lot good to say about Pierre but I don’t think he’s stupid enough vote in favour of banning gay marriage after saying on record that he won’t. That being said you shouldn’t discount people’s concerns that if enough of his party are in favour of passing legislation to do so that they could do it.

If you say so.
That you pretend to claim that this one of the most damning scandals, while simultaneously completely ignoring the governing party directly affiliated to this most damning scandal, to solely focus on the opposition party who didn't ask questions about it on a day there were no less than 3 major Liberal scandals to talk about as Captain Crunch pointed out (PBO gag order on carbon tax, McKinsey report, both of which help Conservatives more in questioning polling wise), is pretty telling.

Rather than speculate with poorly veiled partisan whataboutism, why don't you tell us who you suspect wittingly aided in foreign interference from the Conservative side as it appears to be your most pressing concern from this?

Let's also conveniently forget how Trudeau completely planned to cover all of this up and had his family buddy David Johnston as special rapporteur who found no need for a foreign interference inquiry. Liberals have time and time again blocked attempts to investigate, now that we have a lot more info, your train of thought is: What are the Conservatives hiding since they were silent on it in the first day's question period?

And...what do you know? Surprise surprise Poilievre, Chong and others scolded the Liberals on foreign interference with multiple questions demanding for MP names during today's question period, exactly as would be expected on a damning scandal. And as expected, Liberals refused and deflected. As both the Bloc Quebecois and NDP also demanded names, this makes all major parties asking for names from Liberals on quite a damning scandal.

Poilievre further proceeded to read to Freeland and the house the PBO gag order on carbon taxes which he apparently got a copy off.

Give them time, there's so many damning Liberal-NDP coalition scandals, so little time to get to them .

Tying Conservatives to the scandal before they demanded names: WHATABOUTISM!

Tying the NDP to the scandal after they demanded names: … *crickets*
