Eh? The Independent writes, “How a tangled and deadly web of global corruption spreading out from Gaddafi’s Libya threatens to topple Justin Trudeau.”
Mr Trudeau’s administration stands accused of attempting to soften penalties against SNC–Lavalin, a Montreal-based engineering giant that allegedly paid C$48m (£27m) in bribes to Libyan officials to win contracts in the decade before Gaddafi’s downfall.
Allegedly corrupt business dealings with the Gaddafi regime have already led to raids, seizures of assets, convictions and jail time in cases in the Netherlands and Norway, and deals under quiet scrutiny by prosecutors stretch the globe, involving firms in Europe, Asia, North America, and the Middle East, an investigation by The Independent reveals.
The Daily Caller reports, “TRUDEAU EQUATES PROCUREMENT OF PROSTITUTES TO SUPPORTING ‘CANADIAN WORKERS’.”
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau equated the procurement of prostitutes as one way his government can “stand up for Canadian jobs,” in a Wednesday Question Period exchange with the Official Opposition Conservatives.
In response to a question from Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel about a report that the embattled Quebec contractor SNC-Lavalin paid $30,000 (CND) to entertain Muammar Gaddafi’s son with prostitutes, Trudeau appeared to not only confirm the story; he also tried to exonerate the company.
And just because the PM is such a premium dufus (doofus), here are a few more of his best looks.
Village People – “Macho Man”
MTTA: Make Trudeau [A Drama] Teacher Again. I personally thought the meme should have been “Make Trudeau A Drama Queen Again”, but most folks believe he multi-tasks quite well, so being a “drama queen” goes without saying. He wears both hats very well, thank you.
Speaking allegorically about Canada’s War on Drugs – “For Want of a Nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.” Now don’t bogart that joint, my friend….
