The Liberals voted no to the Conservative motion which argued MPs should have to repay expenses from illegal activity.

The parties refusal to implement a strong response to illegal activity from Members of Parliment is rather interesting and important.

The Liberal party entered in 2015 as a response to a tired Conservative party which was dragged along through scandal after scandal. Some of the largest involving improper expenses.

The Liberals have already been caught eating out of the public purse.

As Documents tabled in the House of Commons in September revealed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office alone spent roughly $220,000 moving his staff to Ottawa, with one staffer billing the taxpayer $126,669.56 in relocation costs.

Outside of improper expenses, the party has also faced multiple ethical violations, with the Prime Minister himself receiving scrutiny as a result of his trip to the Agha Khans private island. 

With this significant amount of baggage, this vote could be the moment that breaks the camels back. The Conservatives will now continue to attack the Liberal party for refusing to act, likely arguing that the Liberals have something to hide.

In response, the Liberals will have nothing to say.

  1. I have a bit of a problem with some one we elected basically admitting that they are stealing from we the people. then they have the nerve to publicly gloat about it and as a group agree that they have a right to steal from us tax payers and not have to be responsible for the criminal actions they are knowingly committing. I think that stealing from the taxpayers and gloating about it should give us the right to skip this years taxes because it is contributing to a criminal organisation which would be the Canadian liberal party.

  2. This is wrong! If you are always going to be out bid because there are more numbers on the other side, where is the law, does it not mean anything? He broke the law, but he gets a pass. He needs to pay back what he took from us.

  3. Apparently you don’t allow people to comment, since I tried but all I get is, (Duplicate comment)
    He needs to pay back what he took.

  4. Seriously? THEY GET TO VOTE ON THEIR CRIMES! That can’t be allowed. It’s a blatant conflict of interest. Where is it written that they don’t have to abid by any lawl? If any of us did anything like they have done… we would be terminated without severence and arrested! They have stolen copius amounts of Taxpayers’ money and are not being held accountable. They are sending a clear message that THEY THINK they are too elite to comply with Canada’s laws! What a bunch of crooks! They should all be imprisoned without parole!

  5. This makes me sick yet not surprised people who steal money to gamble etc and get caught usually can’t pay it back. Mind you for 200,000 they would be going to jail. The other thing is CRA conciders it income so they might not pay it back but they have to pay taxes on it. Trudeau better be paying taxes on that 200,000. Even though he stole it he had it and it is conciders income. Il begotten income but still income and owes taxes on every penny of it.

  6. ‘They’ are just following in the footsteps of the Senate. The key word is entitlement! Lest we forget, remember a politician/minister by the name of Dingwall? There is a short video about him stating that he was entitled to his entitlements. He actually went to court and he WON!

  7. Anyone who misspends public funds should have to pay it back and it should become public knowledge. How else can the public make a decision when voting?

  8. By all means do not make them pay it back. They should be tried for criminal offences and jailed. And not in Club Fed’s. And barred from ever holding another public office.

  9. every day something new and disgraceful from the leftist Marxist communist liberal party of Canada, Now in full blow unaccountable Dictatorship mode…….feel its right to changes our laws to enable Muslims to play the victim card even when they are our enemies and try and kill our soldiers. Now we are ignoring law, and approving of spiking babies in the womb while replacing them with non vetted Muslim immigrants. who are responsible for 80% of all rapes in Canada and1/2 of all Murders. shocking to say the least, 2/3 are still taking food from the poor at food banks while making close to $5000 per month. And today announcing that its ok to rape and harass women if they work for the federal government. this is beyond deplorable behavior and time for a revolution………as nothing about this holds Canadian values..

  10. “The Liberal party entered in 2015 as a response to a tired Conservative party which was dragged along through scandal after scandal. Some of the largest involving improper expenses.”

    There was nothing tired about the Conservative party……I think what you mean is you were getting tired of left wing media outlets tirelessly making something out of nothing. The Mike Duffy personal expense matter was really very small and insignificant compared to the corruption of the current liberal party. We are now billions further in debt as a nation because of the incompetent boy child occupying the PMO. That is the real scandal!

  11. Items of this nature should be in the courts, not the house. If it’s misuse of funds then simply pay them back. Where are the missing members, all should have to be on record where they stand on an issue of this nature?

  12. Lets have a look at the Canadian scandals since about 2000……hmmm kinda one sided I would say. l can see that Trues vacation seems pretty minor compared to the corruption done by the Conservatives in the last few decades .!

  13. Isn’t that like putting the fox in charge of the hen house? We need to get them out of there. They are not working for the people of Canada.

  14. WHAT!! Not responsible for ineligible expenses? This could be the last straw, Lib’s. Fix this s.a.p. or say good by to me.
    We are struggling as a society to deal with entitlement in our next generations. Where is your Leadership? You should lead by example. Bye bye.

  15. I do not think we have impeachment like the states. has anyone got something the we can get this canada destroyer out of office if so I’ll be the first in line helping to oust him

  16. I don’t think we have impeachment like the state does anyone have any idea how we can get rid of trudeau legally I will be first in line to oust this idiot who is ruining canada

  17. Liberal lost support from taxpayers and some if not most FN nations are not happy with broken promises and judicial system! Guess most have lost respect and trust in this government!

  18. I have a lot of trust issues with the liberal government. Trudeau is on his high horse about how everyone should be treated equally but when he commits a crime he gets away with it and not only that everyone knows about it and still gets away with it because all the people that voted in support of him not suffering the consequences for his actions. Why is this system in place? Just put a bunch of criminals in the seats? Same thing. Makes me sick to my stomach knowing people in these positions are getting away with this. I don’t like people in these positions of power being criminals. OH wait, does that make me a criminalphobic? Step down Trudeau you honestly are horrible at your job along with the corrupt sidekicks that support you.
