Gomery Inquiry Lifts Publication Ban – Liberals are Finished for a Generation

Today, Stephen Taylor is reporting that the publication ban at the Gomery Inquiry was lifted. The ban was put in place to suppress damning testimony given by Groupaction president Jean Brault. The effect of suppressing this information has kept the Canadian public from knowing the full extent of liberal corruption which would spell the end of this liberal minority government. That ban is now gone and Canadians will soon learn details of Jean Brault’s suppressed testimony. Experts in the know agree that Canadians will be returning to the polls within months.

During five days of suppressed testimony, Jean Brault gave details of the liberal party’s sponsorship money laundering scheme. Under the scheme, liberal party insiders awarded $250 million dollars worth of contracts to advertising firms on the condition that they make in-kind payments directly to the liberal party.

In addition to direct political contributions, the liberal friendly ad firms also paid liberal campaign expenses directly. Bills the liberal party received for signs, pamphlets and other campaign expenses were simply handed over to ad firms to be paid using taxpayer dollars. By doing this, the liberal party avoided the need to declare contributions through the Elections Canada laws governing disclosure.

Another aspect of the scam involved liberal friendly ad firms putting liberal party organizers on their payroll. Instead of being compensated for work done for the ad firms, liberal party organizers were being paid with taxpayer money diverted to ad firms, while the liberal party members were actually working on campaigns in liberal ridings.

Manitoba residents can remember not long ago when a scandal broke involving a few thousand dollars of private money. The money was paid out to advance a candidate in northern Manitoba in order to split a vote in a lesser known provincial riding. The fallout from that minor scandal was enough for Manitobans to oust the incumbent party and replace them with a socialist NDP government that has since added over a billion dollars to the debt of that province. Comparing that scandal to this one involving the federal liberals is like comparing a pebble to a planet.

When Canadians learn the details of liberal corruption, starting today, the liberal party is finished for a generation.

Michael, I agree there will be major fall out from this gongshow with Adscam. However, what will be the difference with a new election compared to the prior election where Canadians (mostly eastern) voted in a corrupt government?

The only difference between now and then is we now know the Liberals are corrupt vs. strongly suspecting they were corrupt.

Looks like we will end up with data to prove they are corrupt instead of just saying it. It will be an interesting election - you said election right? pant pant

Good post. I agree. I just hope my home province (Ontario) is outraged enough to vote overhwelmingly Conservative.
