Kellie Leitch campaign calls Trudeau Liberals “crooked crew”

Kellie Leitch, Member of Parliament for Simcoe – Grey and candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, calls for investigating prime minister Justin Trudeau for his controversial end-of-year vacation at the private island of his close friend the Aga Khan, the supreme leader of the 15 million Shia Ismaili Muslims around the world.

David Akin, the parliamentary bureau chief for the Sun chain of newspapers, revealed (National Post , January 6, 2017) that Trudeau, his family and a few friends spent the New Year as the guest of the Aga Khan on the religious leader’s private island in the Bahamas. Akin noted that the Aga Khan, who is the 49th Hereditary Imam of the world’s 15 million Shia Ismaili Muslims, has been a friend of the Trudeau family for years, beginning with Pierre Trudeau and his Aga Khan Development Network recently received from Trudeau government $55 million grant over five years to improve maternal and child health in Afghanistan.

SANA, Syria’s official news agency, provides information on the close relations between the Aga Khan and Aga Khan Development Network and Assad regime. According to SANA, the Aga Khan Shia Imami Ismaili Council for Syria stated in 2014 that “the Syrians are able to practice constructive democracy and build Syria as they chose a national president [Bashar Assad] who will fulfill the aspirations of all Syrians.” During 2014-16, representatives of Aga Khan Development Network met with the Syrian ministers for education, water resources, tourism and agriculture to carry out development and humanitarian projects in Syria.

In a fundraising email on January 7, 2017, Richard Ciano, Former National Vice President of the Conservative Party and today the Chief Strategist of Kellie Leitch Campaign, wrote that an investigation is needed because “many will quite understandably perceive that as a conflict of interest.”

Ciano argued that the vacation raises questions about ethics as the Canadian government gives the Aga Khan foundation $11 million per year. “Sure, we want an investigation. But more than that, we need to defeat this crooked crew in 2019,” he concluded.

The following are excerpts from Richard Ciano’s letter:

Well, it turns out the reason for all the secrecy was because Justin Trudeau and the Get-Along Gang were hanging out on the Aga Khan’s private island.

Who’s the Aga Khan, you ask? He’s the spiritual leader of the Ismailis. He’s also a philanthropist who does a lot of good work. So much good work, the Canadian government gives his foundation $11 million per year. And that’s where the problem is. Ethics

Sure, we want an investigation. But more than that, we need to defeat this crooked crew in 2019 and that starts with this leadership race…

  1. the best thing to come from a liberal agenda meeting?…. an empty bus.

  2. Look at yourself Kellie before calling others crooked. You’re a real winner. Geesh.

  3. Kellie Leitch is disgusting Donald Trump wannabe.

  4. Right on! Expose what they’re up to…

  5. I just can’t believe Canadians, after watching the Hilary and Side Show Bob show south of the border are actually becoming the same puppets pulled by the same strings. It’s disgusting to me. Each of you, do yourselves a favour, educate yourselves on trade, politics, economics, business and foreign policy. Tuck in your filthy hate and pray for forgiveness and clarity. Examine the individuals asking for your vote and vote based in the best person for the job, not based in some ridiculous party loyalty. Become critical thinkers. Stop letting these privileged charlatans manipulate your thoughts and emotions. This country and all our people deserve better.

  6. Queen of Barbaric Cultural Practices, should be running for a position with Trump’s administration, and staying out of Canadian Politics!

  7. And she would know from experience.

  8. Canadian democracy is a “CESSPOOL” of deceit and corruption. We as Canadians have 3 main threats, outside forces and those attempting to pervert our society, global environmental evolution, and the biggest threat of all is our very own government. If this woman stands for putting Canadians first investing in this country and not others, eliminate counterproductive taxation ie carbon tax/ cap and trade and trimming the “CESSPOOL” down to a manageable affordable size and correcting a failed mismanaged utility that is driving people into poverty…..she has my vote!!! If this is just bolstering deceit without true intention, she only adds to the problem and not the remedy THIS country needs to improve!

  9. good Kelly ..Don t back down

  10. CIJ News seem to love Leitch. Well, they would, being a mouth-breathing racist rag.

  11. Another page from Trump. Does she have one original idea? What did she call Peter MacKay when he used a search and resuce helicopter to pick him up at fishing camp? What did she call Harper when he claimed to know nothing about Duffy’s pay off? What did she call Mulroney when he failed to report earnign 300000 as part of the Air Bus scandal?

  12. Please tell me this thread has been lifted from The Beaverton.

  13. I really really really really hope she wins ;p

  14. Stop..Just stop it…It was in the rules and he followed the rules. In the words of David Dingwall ” ( Liberal cabinet minister under Chretien) I am entitled to my entitlements”. Vote Libertarian Party and help us reduce government.

  15. and the conservatives are honest, you all are crooks or compromised that is politics at its finest

  16. As she stood mute as Harper and the PMO conspired with Mike Duufy, and Nigel Wright to undermine Cdn. Democracy. She has no moral authority.

    • 90 Thousand dollars , and Duffy was cleared , Trudeau and the Trudeau foundation 1 Million dollars , the Bahamas lowball figure would be 150 thousand dollars , pay for play scheme 100 dreds of thousands of dollars , How many excuses are you willing to make on your great grand childrens future , 2055 before Canada is to return to a balanced budget only if we don’t hit a recession in the mean time , how could any sane person try to make an excuse for this liberal POS Trudeau

  17. There once was a newbie named Leitch
    The PM’s job was a heck of a reach
    So she sowed her some hatred
    (That tactic’s never overrated)
    Philosophy that’s A-1 hate speech.

  18. She will not last any way, you can’t put lipstick on a pig.

  19. I’m OK if Kellie becomes the next Conservative party leader. Then we can kick her out like we did Harper!

  20. The man is a showboat just like his father was

  21. aga khan is a complete peaceful leader your being fooled by the words muslim and brainwashed by the news ,, we are war with the word terrorist ,,

  22. aga khan is a complete peaceful leader your being fooled by the word muslim

  23. Funny she wants an investigation on some shady things the PM is doing And suddenly liberals start the childish bs.

  24. There is an obvious conflict of interest when a personal friend of Trudeau is receiving money from the government of Canada. Not a way we expect a prime minister to be conducting himself.

  25. Kellie Leitch Why don’t you go and slither under a rock you piece of garbage.


  27. Steve Bolton how did he heavily vet and hand pick them? Are you saying in that month or so he was in power, that was enough time to heavily vet any one?

  28. Steve Bolton I’m sure they all know that it was the conservative’s that started this “refugee plan” and it was Harper that properly vetted the first 25 thousand or so of them.
    It was Trudeau that took credit for it and than just started ramming in as many as he could. And that is what they are upset about moron! Not the fact that he’s bringing them in.
    It’s morons like you that are making up all the rest of the BS

  29. omg l’il miss trump…why do think we dumped harper?

  30. She is interested in two things and two things only: making you afraid of it and telling you who’s to blame for it. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you win elections. Do I really care where he went for his Vacation “NOT” Why you ask? He can do what he want’s to do in this country just like me ” It’s a free country. The Canadian Gov has been giving them cash for years “BEFORE” The Lib’s came into power. So when the CON was giving them cash it was “A O K” but now oooohhh it’s a “BAD THING” ..Take Note CON,LIB,NDP, ETC You are ALL GUILTY OF BS and GAME PLAYING..NOT One of the party’s gives a flying FU#K about the Canadian people so stop just stop saying that you do. You all get brain dead we you get into power. AND just in case you can’t remember ” YOU ARE ALL CROOKED CREW”

  31. If Kellys Leitch is as good as you Conservatives can do I’m not to worried. Enjoy each other.

  32. Nothing to see here, now move along!

  33. A lot of Lieberal liers here..humm.

  34. A good offense is a good defense when/if people ever remember the machinations that went into her being elected in the first place and then to disclose her own possible conflicts of interest to the Ethics Commissioner through her relationship with the Dundee REIT. People have short memories. They even have forgotten Harper opening the Aga Khan museum as PM.

  35. He is dictator. Trudeau must be put to jail.

  36. This chick is a crack pot.

  37. Rick Tipple Let her go right off a cliff and take the ignorant hate mongers with her. Jesus does not approve of this lot!

  38. Hey the mischaracterization (that means lies for you Trumpsters who don’t know big words) worked for Trump, Why not go for it.

  39. DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR. She has become a real Trump clone. I sure hope she doesn’t hi-jack the conservative party of Canada.
