|Trudeau Knocks Them Out|

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced the following changes in the senior ranks of the Public Service:
Leslie MacLean, currently Associate Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, becomes Senior Associate Deputy Minister of Employment and Social Development and Chief Operating Officer for Service Canada, effective July 4, 2016.
Kevin Stringer, currently Senior Assistant Deputy Minister, Ecosystems and Fisheries Management, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, becomes Associate Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, effective July 4, 2016.
The difficult issue for Trudeau is how does he fix the family compact that is entrenched in the Prince Edward Island court system that Wilfred Doyle claims is fixing cases against him to benefit friends and family.
Trudeau, who is not a lawyer, faces some real challenges on this issue because the legal profession and judiciary have been relatively untouchable in Canada since the country was born in 1867.
An analysis of the biography of Leslie MacLean, who was removed from her job and that was published on the Prime Minister's web site, shows that Leslie graduated from the University of Prince Edward Island with a degree in English literature and her first job after university was with the Veterans Appeal Board which is also located in Prince Edward Island suggesting that Leslie may have been improperly influenced by the family compact that Wilfred Doyle and his wife have been battling for over 5 long years.
Leslie's replacement Mr. Stringer does not appear to be deeply connected to Prince Edward Island.

The island also has a legislature of 27 members who earn about $70,000 per year each, cabinet members are paid more.
The Island is also home to a cozy coddled court bureaucracy that includes 2 chief justices with a salary of $315,000 per year and six other federally appointed justices with salaries of $288,000 per year.
See Judges Act section 18
There is also a Provincial Court with three Provincial Court judges paid a similarly high salary.
It is difficult to find out the real average income of non government workers in PEI because the political and government people, of which there a disproportionate number in PEI, are living on generous federal government handouts which skews the statistics.
While the rich get richer on PEI it is increasingly obvious that the poor are getting poorer and their ranks are growing which could lead to rioting on the streets and other forms of social anarchy.
Taxation rates are punitive, regressive and hit the working man or woman hardest.
The MacKillop Centre for Social Justice and the Coalition for a Poverty Eradication Strategy for P.E.I., found 17.5 per cent of children on the Island living in poverty in 2012, compared to 13.8 per cent in 1989.

Social assistance — there haven’t been increases of any significance for a very long time — we’ve had taxes that haven’t been fair and low-income people have paid more than their fair share,”
“We have a high unemployment rate, we have a low weekly wage rate compared to the rest of Canada, and we have no serious commitment from our government to enact a poverty eradication strategy.
