The Senate scandal did not begin with Mike Duffy. It began on February 8, 2013 when Conservative Government Senate Leader Marjory LeBreton
attempted to kick Patrick Brazeau out of the Senate after he and his girlfriend had a personal fight in their home over aboriginal issues. The police were called and Patrick was charged.
Lots of Members of Parliament and Senators have had charges leveled against them for an entire host of contraventions of the law; drunk driving, assault, fraud and more.
When Brazeau stood up against his dismissal the Senate attempted to use his residency as a reason to rid themselves of the Indian. That is when the shit hit the fan.
Although the "residency" issue had been discussed and debated since late 2012 - not until LeBreton attempted to expel Brazeau did any of the senate Scandal make big news exposing the massive corruption within the Conservative Party.
No one knows, or has spilled the beans yet, but Brazeau is no longer the center of attention is he?
He knew everyone in the Senate and everyone in the Conservative Party. Like Duffy ,the PMO (Prime Ministers Office) used him (Brazeau) for their own political purposes. Brazeau was, and is, not one to follow the socially cultured norms of our idiotic white society, bending over and taking it up the backside just so the gang might still like us.
Brazeau was clearly behind the "spilling the beans" to certain media types and out came intimate details of the residency scandal just two weeks later. Now the two media hacks Harper appointed, Pamela Wallens and Mike Duffy, were forced to take center stage.
Originally it began on November 22, 2012 when the Senate set up a committee to look at Brazeaus residency only. In the following weeks Duffy was forced to answer questions to reporters from the Ottawa Citizen. Ever wonder how they got tipped off?
In June, 1990, Elija Harper, the lone sitting Indian in the Manitoba Legislature, did something similar to Conservative Brian Mulroney, the guy Stephen Harper admires. He stood up with an Eagle Feather and said no to the Meech Lake Accord, Mulroneys multi year long negotiated cross country pack that would see a constitutional change including a reformed Senate.
One can just hear the backroom boys of the conservative Party screaming like the bigots in the backrooms of the Terrace elite, those god damn fucking Indians are screwing us again.
And the worst among them will be wishing the genocidal tactics their forerunners used; purposefully spreading small pox,
(besides shooting all the Buffalo and setting up the residential schools death camps), would have finished them all off.
Poor Duffy and Wallens. Apparently Brazeau is no longer on center stage. And isn’t it weird how Elijahs last name is the same last name of the guy who has lied so much he will have to step down? After Elijahs kick at the last Conservative Prime Minister the Party fell a disastrous death. Nothing less would be delightful today
The best thing we could ask for is that due to the extensive corruption, (including the stolen election), all of the measures passed by this illegitimate government would be withdrawn. All the “Omnibus” Bills including the gutting of the environmental legislation and the promise to use Canadas Military to protect Chinese Investments in Canada against Canadians attempting to protect Canada. This is the FIPA - Foreign Investment Protection Agreement. And to boot - most of the Land is Indian Land anyways.
Patrick Brazeau, I do not like you, I think you are suffering from a large dose of Misogyny, but I thank you for what you are doing to that asshole we call our Prime Minister.
