Liberal MP & Anti-Free Speech Activist Irwin Cotler’s Links With The Mafia: MPs reluctant to comment

NB – Machine Translation

OTTAWA – MPs are reluctant to comment facing the revelations surrounding the Liberal MP Irwin Cotler and the fact that he was also an associate of two businessmen involved in financial transactions with multiple nominees godfather Vito Rizzuto , back when he was Minister of Justice of Canada.

Our Bureau of Investigation said Monday that police had placed the offices of the associates of Mr. Cotler wiretap since January 2004 because of their alleged links with a financial manager of funds of Rizzuto.

This police surveillance associates of Mr. Cotler, Hyman Bloom and Richard Dubrovsky, two businessmen well known in the world of finance and real estate Montreal, had started one month after the appointment of Mount Royal as MP Minister of Justice.

“All I can say is that if these facts are true, it is very worrying,” simply responded a spokesman for the office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Catherine Loubier.



Recall that Cotler recently introduced a despicably fascist bill that would strip Canadians of their right to free speech and permit secret Star Chamber trials where the accused would not know their accusers.

  • Now Cotler can add to his bill car trunk detention and sleeping with the fishes as punishments for “hate speech”.

    Jesuzzz Christo – Is there no politician in this once great country that are not liars cheap chiseling low life ‘what’s in it for me?’ trough feeding slimeballs? What exactly does anyone on my dime at any level have to do to get arrested? I honestly believe my head is going to explode-

    • Evidently it’s OK to associate with the Mafia if you are a Liberal MP.

        If you’ve ever lived in Montreal you know that they infest every aspect of life not only there, but the whole g-d province!

        • Same in Ontario, they are just more discreet, less prone to shoot up the place. I have spoken with retired cops and the extent of the infiltration is shocking.

            You don’t know the half of it. A former RCMP opened my eyes.

        I think being a FedLib means you’re automatically associating with heavy types. 😉

  • Hard Little Machine

    So they’re basically on the side of the people who executed Jesus for practicing free speech. Well ok then.

    Can he go to prison over this?

    • Only if it can be proven he has done something illegal, he is claiming to only have been a “passive investor” in a firm with direct links to one of the biggest Mafia bosses in Canada.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Money laundering and as a means to disguise kickbacks.
        Normal people don’t find themselves in such situations.

          A passive investor.
          Michael Corleone was a simple olive oil importer.

        • I should have cranked up the sarcasm knob when I wrote “passive investor”.

  • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

    None of the political parties here in Canada are innocents at all,ask Mike Duffy, mmm I should ask Harper and his team of fraudsters I guess.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Get over yourself, Skippy, and keep your eye on your wallet when hanging with your scummy lib “friends”.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Tee hee.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      It’s a question of magnitude.
      Adscam was millions.

    “…and permit secret Star Chamber trials where the accused would not know their accusers.”

    Why am I not suprised? Back in the early 80s, Cotler was President of CJC and had also played a role (if I remember correctly) in the legislation intended to replace the WMA.

    What concerned me was the provision to release criminals to have room for terrorists (if the prisons ran out of space).

    I wrote to him about this and he responded by telling me not to worry.

    • Yea that seems to be their one size fits all response “don’t worry”.

      Which means start worrying.

  • J. C.

    Dey don’t call’em ‘Libranos’ for nuttin’, ya know… Capiche?

    • Cripes the guy was minister of justice, it don’t get no better than that if you want to cover your money laundering for the mob.

  • David Murrell

    According to Election Canada records, Hyman Bloom donated $1,000 to the Mount Royal Liberal Association on December 18, 2008, and another $1,100 to the same association on December 31, 2009. Mount Royal is Irving Cotler’s riding he represents.

    It was either Frank Costello or Lucky Luciano who once said that the fact politicians and other public officials could be corrupted should surprise no one. He related what surprised him in most cases was the modest amounts of cash or favours the corrupted people usually sought when they were in positions to produce very valuable outcomes for the mob.

    Free speech isn’t a left/ right things. Some people on both sides are in favour of it.

    Hate speech laws don’t muzzle the biggest racists.Cotler and his tribe.
