Morneau departure is PM saving self, says local MP
Kootenay-Columbia MP Rob Morrison says Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s resignation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s cabinet, and as the Member of Parliament for Toronto Centre, is “further proof of a government in chaos.”
Morrison stated on social media that at a time when Canadians are worried about their health and their finances, “Justin Trudeau’s government is so consumed by scandal that Trudeau has amputated his right hand to try and save himself.”
The Conservative MP noted Morneau was Trudeau’s “handpicked Finance Minister. They have moved in lockstep for five years implementing troubling policy. From the Liberals’ carbon tax, to their tax hikes on small businesses, to their massive deficit spending, Trudeau and Morneau’s policies have hurt Canadians.
“Firing Bill Morneau does not solve the problem. Every day new details emerge in the Trudeau WE Scandal that paints a concerning picture of corruption at the highest levels of government. Until Justin Trudeau is no longer Prime Minister, nothing will change.
“Conservatives will continue to hold Justin Trudeau and his government accountable and we will keep fighting for the answers that Canadians deserve,” Morrison concluded.
