Still deflecting

Apparently Justin Trudeau plans to "make a display of contrition over how officials in his office conducted themselves" and to "show some ownership over the actions of his staff and officials" in their handling of the SNC-Lavalin file, and their attempted handling of former AG, Jody Wilson-Raybould.


Except -- have we forgotten that one of the very first meetings where partisan-motivated political interference took place, was one in which Justin Trudeau was not only there, but he actually brought up his own position as an "MP from Quebec" - where a provincial election was to be held within weeks.

So here we are again, Justin Trudeau is unable to accept blame, responsibility or even ADMIT his own wrong-doing, but somehow, gonna do the right thing and blast those other guys who were bad.

This government is a joke.  This Prime Minister is a joke.

He's an eight year old, caught in the act and still pointing fingers elsewhere, saying "Not me! him!"

I don't think any of the players mentioned by Wilson-Raybould have clean hands. This was not off the PM's radar. It was not something rogue underlings had taken on without his knowledge or approval. It doesn't matter whether it was Butt's idea or Katie Telford's, or if one of them orchestrated the pressure on Wilson-Raybould. Trudeau was an active player... not a bystander. He's as culpable as anyone on this.

When Wilson-Raybould suggested to Butts that she'd been demoted because of  "a decision that (she) wouldn't take" Butts asked if she was questioning the integrity of the prime minster.

We ALL should be.
