Liberal candidate slams Trudeau for rigging nomination in Trinity-Spadina federal by-election

Another example of Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s open nominations pledge has been exposed as a complete lie as MP candidate Ryan Davey withdrew his bid and publicly ripped Trudeau for fixing the nomination so his chosen candidate Adam Vaughan wins:

As part of a renewed Liberal Party – one that would do politics transparently and democratically – we were promised open nominations. However events over the past few weeks have led me to decide that this nomination process has been a de facto appointment. While it’s the leader’s prerogative to recruit and select candidates, the clear identification of favoured candidates creates an imbalance in support that is difficult to overcome for other candidates. Further, the nomination rules for Trinity-Spadina were changed so that all candidates received the membership lists and forms prior to being green lit, which provided Adam Vaughan with critical information that all candidates had waited several weeks to receive. Regardless of the outcome, these circumstances have not been consistent with an open nomination process. (see here)

This is the second time Trinity-Spadina has been involved in Trudeau gaming this nomination – Christine Innes has filed a lawsuit against Trudeau and Liberal Party officials after her candidacy was pulled in a Liberal scheme (see here) to oust her.

Imagine if Harper was doing this and what the Media Party fire-storm would look like.

    The current Trudeau is not willfully blind nor politically tone deaf. He’s a mean young creature with no moral center with a complex of some sort. He seems not to know what is happening by listening to his advisers for darn near everything and most of it is bad advice for a young politician.It all stinks to high heaven.still, within a week or so he’ll do or say something almost as stupid. Oh, if only the young people could see beyond the hair do and see this young man for what he is.

    If he wins Trudeau will regret buying him lunch.

    Sounds like Trinity Spadina is going to the communist versus the communist, versus the other communist, versus the conservative in the general.

    Boots on the ground win bye-elections, and with the unions working for the NDP they should be Ok…. so unless the Liberals bring in outside help they are deep trouble in this riding even with comrade Vaughan as the newest “star”. I do wonder if leader JT approved Mr.Vaughan’s expense of a $300 office coffee maker to the tax payer. Or Mr.Vaughan’s idea of taxing the sidewalk outside of downtown businesses or Mr. Vaughan’s backing of getting rid of the Island airport bridge costing taxpayer 35 million under the Mayor Miller regime, believe me Mr.Vaughan will be a Liberal gift for his opponents, but hey from the Liberal photo they do like the Perrier. How middle class of them!!

    How the Liberals think they can expect to get support from smart people by putting out front to lead them is about as substantive as “a rag, a bone and a hank of hair”. You’d have to be a Liberal who votes brain free or a liberal who is brain dead as to what it would mean to Canada to allow him power. It would be like electing a pig in a poke, no would know exactly what we’d have leading because he’s be handled and managed/advised by faceless bureaucrats behind the curtain, he’s just not capable, he’s shown that many times over.
