Mr. Prime Minister: Promote Philanthropy - Stop Playing Politics

I just read Brett Wilson's National Post opinion piece on the HarperCons "boys in short pants in the PMO" manufactured manipulation over Justin Trudeau charging fees for speaking at charity events.

He deals with the substance of this issues of promoting philanthropy through speaking engagements.  It is worth a read and reflection.  I agree with him.

As for the politically motivations of our Prime Minister using this bullying as a deflection device is a feeble in effective attempt to divert attention from the moral corruption in his leadership.  The permanent drop in his support amongst Canadians shows we have had enough of his affinity for US style dirty-trick politics.

It is time for political leadership in Canada that is dedicated to the greater good and not just committed to suppressing democracy to retain personal political power.
