  2. Kelly McParland: Trudeau talked the talk, but he's failed miserably in the Walk Relentless virtue-signalling tends to lose its impact when the signals so often prove no more than words Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks to the media during a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Aug. 22, 2019, in Ottawa.Sebastien St-Jean/AFP/Getty Images Kelly McParland August 22, 2019 4:16 PM All politicians make promises they can’t, won’t or never intended to keep. In that the Trudeau Liberals are no different to any government before them. But they do hold a special place for loudly declaiming fundamental principles they can’t, won’t or have no intention of observing. This week alone we have had two glaring examples. During a 2015 leaders’ debate, Justin Trudeau directed one of his patented moralisms at then-prime minister Stephen Harper. “A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian. And you devalue the citizenship of every Canadian in this place and in this country when you break down and make it conditional for anyone,” he said in moral outrage at Tory treatment of accused terrorists. Then along came Jack Letts, “Jihadi Jack,” relieved of his British citizenship in a last-minute move by the departing U.K. prime minister Theresa May, leaving Canada as his only potential refuge. So of course, Trudeau moved quickly to ensure Letts got all the rights, protections and assistance due a Canadian citizen abroad, right? Not even close. Despite several attempts to extract a coherent position from the prime minister, Trudeau hemmed, hawed, dodged and weaved, resolutely refusing to give a straight answer. While Andrew Scheer made clear he would “not lift a finger” to let Letts into Canada, Trudeau couldn’t explain why this Canadian isn’t as Canadian as other Canadians, or offer anything close to a cogent explanation of how the government plans to handle the situation. While still struggling with that problem, Trudeau ran up against another. When he was just an opposition leader, Trudeau professed shock at the Harper regime’s tight-fisted hold on public information, and swore his government would ensure a new, open and accommodating approach. Members of Parliament would be freed from their shackles to express views and examine issues. Government activities would default to transparency. “A Liberal government will restore Parliament as a place where accountable people, with real mandates, do serious work on behalf of Canadians,” he proclaimed. Jack “Jihadi Jack” Letts, an ISIL recruit who held dual British-Canadian citizenship until the U.K. revoked his citizenship, and who is now in jail in Syria, hopes to come to Canada. Postmedia Unless, it turns out, that serious work might possibly embarrass the government — especially in the weeks leading to an election in which the Liberals are struggling to hang onto their ground. So this week obedient Liberals blocked efforts by the House of Commons ethics committee to question Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion. The commissioner released a stinging report last week decrying Trudeau’s treatment of former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould and his assiduous efforts to prevent SNC-Lavalin from facing corruption charges. In his report, Dion complained of being denied access to important additional information, and Trudeau’s refusal to waive cabinet confidentiality so witnesses could share all they knew. https://nationalpost.com/opinion/kelly-mcparland-trudeau-talked-the-talk-but-hes-failed-miserably-in-the-walk
