The point in the case would be the passing of Brian Mulroney. I'm sorry, folks, but these media groups and Liberal politicians talking about what a great prime minister he was have certainly done an about-face when Chretien was prime minister. That seemed to be Jean's goal, along with liberals, to take Mulroney down for the bribe-taking crook he was. The media was out for blood.

Now he's dead, and they all love him.

Brian Mulroney was responsible for splintering the Conservative Party into two other parties: the Bloc Quebecois and the Reform Party. As a long-time friend of the Trudeau family, one could question whether Brian Mulroney was a Liberal plant. Because he decimated the Progressive Conservatives and sued the government for 50 million dollars and stopped a criminal investigation.

The Airbus Affair was a political scandal that began in the late 1980s and concluded around 2010. The scandal concerned the purchase of Airbus passenger aircraft for Air Canada in the 1980s (when it was a crown corporation) by the government of Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. It was alleged that German Canadian businessman Karlheinz Schreiber had bribed Mulroney to purchase Airbus aircraft. Mulroney countered that he had not acted inappropriately and that the allegations were part of a smear campaign. Mulroney sued the federal government for $50 million. Ultimately, the RCMP ended its investigation without laying charges. The government settled out of court with Mulroney in 1997. However, it was later determined that Mulroney had indeed acted inappropriately and had received at least $225,000 in cash.

Fucking hypocrites.

Mulroney hypocrisy is fucking lightweight amateur pandering compared to the deaficatition of a hardcore eugenicist like The Greatest Canadian Tommy "the Commie" Douglas.

Fucking appalling.

Yes, but Tommy had his funeral 38 years ago. I'm referring to Brian.
