Trudeau’s ethics inquest to draw more attention to Canada’s Coronavirus expenses
As the survey showed Justin Trudeau making a loss on gains made, in the bid to contain the pandemic, analysts on Tuesday expressed that Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister's third ethics inquest in many years will draw a lot of legislative attention to his government's Coronavirus expenses. In the early part of this month, Trudeau's Liberal Party was at the peak in survey after sourcing C$210 billion for a direct emergency in record time; less than four months and Canada was able to contain the breakout of the coronavirus.
However, there was an immediate change of flow of events when Canada's ethics commissioner set the prime minister under scrutiny for contravening the conflict-of-interest regulations when his government chose WE Charity Canada, which had doled out considerable speaking charges to his mother and brother in the current past to manage a C$900 million bursary program for scholars. David Coletto at Abacus Data‘s polls reflected that the Liberals had since the last polls in June lost four points although they were still leading the Conservatives; he further expressed that playing politics with the pandemic was quite a difficult to thing to do, however, raising the dust of an ethics misconduct is according to him, a melody to the opposition’s ears.
As Canada is cautiously coming alive again after months of lockdown; according to Coletto, the time of exigency is far passed which has given room for more investigation that will relax the investment on future Coronavirus aid. In October, Trudeau lost out on many in parliament and is supposedly dependent on the opposition as his pillar. Now, this current ethics misconduct has made the three parties short-term allies having gone ahead to kick off their inquiry in the Finance Committee in the House of Commons.
Finance Minister Bill Morneau, and the Prime Minister, Trudeau, have been summoned for attestation before the committee. It is worthy of note that the daughter of the Finance Minister Bill Morneau works at WE Charity. The Prime Minister is yet to declare his stand, however; Morneau will be attending on Wednesday.
