PETERS – Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau should step down

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau.

ONE OF THE MANY, many reasons there was good cause to fear the election of Donald Trump was that Trump would simply use the office of president to enrich himself and his family.

Trump is nothing if not obsessed with money and showing he has money, and giving him the reins of power would only give him another platform for self-promotion.

Sure enough, a Washington Post story not long ago described just one example: how Trump’s hotel in Washington has become an extension of the meeting space at the White House.

In Canada, we’ve elected another wealthy person who seems to be intent on using the government for self-enrichment.

Or at least, Bill Morneau isn’t too worried about it looking that way.
