    It's true that Justin Trudeau was not ready to become the Prime Minister yet , but he is a very nice and good person. Things are blown out of proportion in order to take him out and take control by the opposition party.

    Mr. Scheer, you need to get out in the public and meet people, and let us know what your plans are for the future. Are you going to retract the bills such as M103, etc. that Trudope has put in place? Are you going to allow people to have their freedom of speech back again? Are you going to stop illegal immigrants to come into our country? Are you going to stop sending billions of dollars to other countries? Are you going to get the pipelines going ahead? Are you going to axe the carbon tax? Are you going to fight for Canadians, for our culture, and our Country? Are you going to allow the people to have a say on all bills passed? These are what Canadians want!!! Please assure Canadians that you will fix our country, by looking after these things immediately after you are voted in. And lastly and most importantly, don't get mixed up with people and companies that will end up in a scandal. We need to trust our Prime Minister!!!! You can bring us out of our recession. You just have to say NO to the U.N., and use our money to help everyone in need in our country. We could be a rich, independent country if we have a strong P.M. that will work hard for all Canadians. Thank you.

I also want a list of every time the government was involved in this process of criminal remediation and a list of the lobbyists who lobbied them. Transparency is a window I can see through.

    The sad thing is that there is nobody to replace him... Scheer is a social conservative whos voting record shows that he is against womens rights and equal rights. Scheer wants a theocracy and I value human rights over all other things. I don't see Mr Singh as a strong enough leader either... In the next election, I see no other choice but to vote liberal again, and I was once a long time conservative voter.

    He's using scandal to hijack power without offering anything tangible for the People who would elect him. Under the Cons we have moved to a country in which average folks pay through the nose in taxes while increasingly the government has taken away all the services those taxes once financed. No more rail service, more more transport/airports, no more housing in major cities...soon no doubt no more access to health care if you're poor: ALL privatized. The monies paid in tax will go to tax credits to corporations and outright subsidy to corporate interests. That's what Cons want.

    PROROGATION: An arcane parliamentary procedure turned into a political scandal for Harper in 2008. Harper’s minority government was about to be defeated by a coalition of Liberals and New Democrats, with the support of the Bloc Québécois - a perfectly legitimate parliamentary option in Westminster democracies. Harper convinced Governor General Michaëlle Jean to dissolve Parliament - a move that saved his government. In 2009, the Conservatives prorogued Parliament to shut down embarrassing revelations about the Afghan detainee scandal.

    CONTEMPT RULINGS: In 2011, Speaker Peter Milliken ruled the Conservative government was in contempt of Parliament on two separate instances: when the international aid minister lied about the defunding of charitable organization KAIROS, and cabinet’s refusal to reveal the costs of corporate tax cuts, criminal justice measures, and the beleaguered F-35 fighter jet program. The rulings were a major blow at the time to the Conservatives, and helped precipitate the 2011 federal election. Voters however didn’t seem to mind - the Conservatives won a majority.

    G8 FUNDING: In the lead up to the 2010 G8 meeting in Huntsville, senior cabinet minister Tony Clement personally directed a $50-million “legacy” fund, funneling millions in infrastructure to his Muskoka riding. Municipalities far from the actual summit site were given hundreds of thousands of dollars for sidewalk improvements, parks, and most infamously, a gazebo. A subsequent investigation by the auditor general showed funds were doled out with no bureaucratic oversight or paper trails. Clement was later promoted to president of the Treasury Board, the department that oversees government spending.

    SUPREME COURT TUSSLE: Harper’s frustration with the courts came to a head in 2014 when his appointment of Marc Nadon to the top bench was rejected because Nadon failed to meet eligibility requirements. Harper accused Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin of making “inadvisable and inappropriate” attempts to reach him on the issue, an episode author John Ibbitson describes as the “nadir” of his time in power. “Not only did he lose the fight; he tarnished his reputation and damaged what should be the sacrosanct separation of powers between executive and judiciary,” Ibbitson wrote in his book, Stephen Harper.

    AFGHAN DETAINEES: Canadian diplomat Richard Colvin appeared before a parliamentary committee in 2009 and made a bombshell charge - that detainees taken captive by Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan and transferred to local authorities were almost certainly being tortured and abused. The issue escalated into a political crisis when the Conservatives refused to release documents on the issue and prorogued Parliament in December, 2009, shutting down the parliamentary committee that was probing the abuse allegations.

    VETERANS AFFAIRS: For a government that boasts of its support of Canada’s military, looking after veterans should have been a no-brainer. Instead, the Tories have been in the crosshairs of veterans, upset that ill and injured soldiers have been short-changed and angry over the closing of regional veterans affairs offices. The Conservatives have repeatedly tinkered with programs, boosted funding and finally installed Erin O’Toole, himself a veteran, as minister in charge of the file, all in hopes of quelling the controversy.

    MAXIME BERNIER: The debonair Quebec MP showed up at Rideau Hall in 2007 to be sworn into cabinet with girlfriend Julie Couillard on his arm. But she had reported past ties to biker gangs. A year later, Bernier was forced to resign as foreign affairs minister after it was revealed that he had left classified NATO documents at Couillard’s home.

    ELECTION SCANDALS: The Conservatives have found themselves at the centre of multiple investigations over their election activities. In the 2006 “in-and-out” scandal, the Conservative party pled guilty to exceeding national election advertising limits. In the 2011 election, robocalls misdirected voters away from the polls. A Conservative staffer was convicted in that scandal. Former Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro, once Harper’s parliamentary secretary, was convicted of breaking spending rules in the 2008 vote. And in 2013, then-Labrador MP Peter Penashue was forced to quit Harper’s cabinet over illegal campaign donations.

    SENATE APPOINTMENTS: The Senate has been the source of Harper’s most damaging scandal, one that goes to the heart of his office. Unsuccessful in efforts to reform the upper chamber, Harper began to stack it with Tory loyalists. Several appointments now haunt him. Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau and Pamela Wallin were suspended from the Senate for allegations of improper expense claims; Duffy and Brazeau face criminal charges related to their spending. Harper’s own office has been embroiled after it was revealed that Nigel Wright, his chief of staff at the time, cut a $90,000 cheque to cover Duffy’s questionable expenses. Don Meredith, a Toronto senator, quit the Conservative caucus earlier this year after the Star revealed allegations he had a sexual relationship with a teenager.
