How does one find time for back room deals, payments to support friends’ failing businesses, and frequent vacations we sometimes pay for with taxpayer dollars… when one’s day is crammed so full with empty virtue signalling & general dirtbagging?


(Just to clarify, I’d feel this way about any government or group of people that behave the way our government leaders do. What party they represent is irrelevant to me.)

Lots of people working on it and preparing it for your signature. Plus a lot of those businesses do the leg work, get government to approve and sign. Look at the way the WE contract worked. Probably the greatest piece of malfeasance put together by this government, that slid away from it like Hans Brinker on his new skates. And just one of many and more to come, I'm sure. One only need look at his tweets and liberal canned responses in Question Period to know Butts is still employed as trudeau's confessor, protector, confidante and planner. He resigned in Feb 2019 and was rehired by trudeau in April 2019, to head the liberal election team and just never left.

Trudeau is just a signing authority and figurehead.

You forgot 'undermining the Public Service', amongst other hegemonic activities, of course ;)

All-powerful PMO, mistrust “destroying” the public service: Paul Tellier​

The former top public servant and corporate CEO says the long-term trend toward centralized decision-making must be reversed to restore trust.

A lack of trust between politicians and senior levels of the public service, and a Prime Minister’s Office that calls all the shots, is “destroying” Canada’s public service, warns Paul Tellier, Canada’s former top bureaucrat and former head of both Canadian National Railway and Bombardier Inc.
“The current government, with centralization of everything in the PMO, is in the process of destroying the public service … and the word ‘destroying’ is not too strong,” the former clerk of the Privy Council in the Brian Mulroney era said in an interview.

The report found that today’s executives worry about falling public trust in government; the decline in senior bureaucrats giving “fearless advice” to ministers; a hollowing-out of policy capacity; a post-pandemic economic reckoning; conflicts among levels of government; and the need for public service reform.

This has been a growing problem in all levels of government for over 50 years, each successive government getting worse. All decisions are made in “The Centre”. Civil servants find out about new policies on the news instead of from their management. Most of the time, they are policy announcements that they were unaware were even being considered. Often times, the “experts” The Centre consults with are from outside the civil service that share the government’s ideology. The civil service is then left to implement a new policy made on the back of a napkin in The Centre.

It is only going to get worse. There is no incentive for governing leaders to relinquish this centralized power. Eventually, as we are seeing, it will collapse into incompetence. The next government promises to fix then proceeds to follow the exact same pattern.

“But comrade, this worked well in Soviet Russia, yeah? We make all decisions here, so government power remains strong here…makes perfect sense.”

When in doubt or want to hide something such as your incompetence at issuing passports/making airports work, make another Woke formal apology for something that you didn't even do, was pretty well the norm at the time (however wrong it may have been in the hindsight of current standards), and has no one actually affected left to accept the apology.

I mean, by all means celebrate the accomplishments of the Second Construction Batallion of WWI, make it even more worthy because of the conditions under which they operated and the way they were treated then - give them all retroactive medals - name barracks after them - give them a unit citation, etc. But don't apologize because our ancestors acted the way every body in the Anglosphere (and I dare say in the Western sphere) acted at the time.
