Should the Ontario Liberal Party be investigated by police for influence-peddling? That will seem like a far-fetched idea to some. After all, as Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne keeps saying, everything her party and her cabinet members do to raise money conforms with the laws of the province.
But the revelation this week that the Liberal Party sets massive fundraising quotas for cabinet ministers, and then asks those ministers to hit up corporate and union stakeholders in the sectors overseen by their respective departments, is too immense a breach of ethics to be swept under the table without further consequence.
They should be charged.
But that won’t happen.
Ontario is governed by a corrupt political class consisting of the Liberal Party and those that keep them in power.
The public service unions, crony capitalists, and assorted rent-seekers all prey on the citizenry, enriching themselves at our expense.
What’s even more perverse is that 38% of Canadians voted to allow PM Useful idiot’s string pullers direct access to your wallet.
Enjoy the ride.
