Well, for the second time in less than a week, I can't get a video clip where Pierre the mouth tells another lie, and another lie and another lie. Today on Question Period, young, koolaid drinking Poilievre asserts that Liberal MP Domenic Leblanc used some in and out scheme of his own in the last campaign. This came as a shock to me - and I'm certain Mr. Leblanc.
Pierre continues to say that these types of transfers happen "every day" in politics. Every day Pierre? Really? Give your head a shake buddy.
Lets have a look at Domenic's Return shall we.
As you can see, the only transfer from the Liberal Party to Domenic Leblanc's campaign is for $800. Domenic's campaign repaid that $800 and an additional $1500, which was more than likely the cost of his campaign kit supplied by the party. There is no wires from bank to bank. No claim for TV ads that never ran in New Brunswick.
Now let's compare Domenic's return to Conservative Cabinet Minister Lawrence Cannon's.
You'll notice in Mr. Cannon's return, Mr. Cannon received 10,126.18 on January 6, 2006. On January 12, 2006, Mr. Cannon wired the money back to the party, claiming an expense under the heading of "other expense", thereby trying to get a rebate of 60% of that 10,126.18.
Now, does anyone really think that these two examples are exactly the same thing, as Poor Pierre Poilievre would try to convince the rest of Canada they are? Like seriously?
You could view all the expense reports on the Elections Canada website as well. But the Conservatives are propbably going to start telling people that the website has false returns on it. That's the next talking point I'm certain. And, just why is Poor Pierre's interview not available on the Question Period site? That CTV sure is something I tell ya.
