Canadians expect their federal leaders to hold themselves to a high ethical standard. They are entrusted with preserving the public good, managing our tax dollars and representing us on the world stage. They must have elected officials that reflect our values of honour and integrity.
Canadians were shocked to hear the explosive testimony of former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould on the SNC-Lavalin affair earlier this year. Her story was one of inappropriate, and potentially illegal pressure placed on her by the Prime Minister and his top officials – all to let a connected corporation off the hook on corruption charges.
Not only has the Prime Minister and his office been rocked by the SNC scandal, but there are also questions that remain over the breach of trust charge levelled against Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, who was only doing his job to ensure the Royal Canadian Navy received a desperately needed supply ship.
The Prime Minister is failing to meet the obligations of his high office. If he will not stand up to protect the rule of law, the fundamental nature of our democracy is compromised.
