Throughout his tenure as prime minister, Justin Trudeau has been associated with myriad number of scandals. Some such as SNC Lavalin are exposed by way of media, and others are not.
One such case may well relate to the mysterious deaths of Barry Sherman, and his wife, Honey. Mr. Sherman was a pharmaceutical billionaire who also worked as a political lobbyist .

“The 75-year-old chairman of Apotex and his 70-year-old wife Honey were found dead of strangulation in their Toronto home, police said. Media reports said they were both found hanged next to their indoor swimming pool. Apotex is the largest maker of generic drugs in Canada, and the Shermans’ fortune was estimated at more than US$3 billion.”
According to federal court documents, Sherman tried to block subpoenas of two Apotex executives issued by Karen Shepherd, Canada’s commissioner of lobbying, to compel them to speak with investigators.
Sherman and Apotex faced a possible five-year ban on lobbying the government if it could be proven that he ran afoul of rules that prohibit registered lobbyists, such as Sherman, from lobbying office holders they helped get elected.
In other words, it appears there is a direct connection between the deaths of the Shermans, and PM Justin Trudeau.  Scandal after scandal has plagued the Trudeau government. It is more than arguable that an association between Justin Trudeau and Barry Sherman would have a negative impact upon Trudeau’s reputation, and therefore his chances of re-election.
In fact, there was a second investigation into a November 2016 fundraiser co-organized by Sherman for Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau. This  was reportedly dropped due to a lack of evidence.
“Phil McIntosh, director of investigations for the lobby commission, said in a report cited by the Toronto Star that “the directorate found evidence indicating that Mr Sherman engaged in political activities that risk creating a sense of obligation on the part of one or more public office holders” through the August 2015 fundraiser.”
 Why the oblique presentation? Just tell the readers what is going on here.  What is a “risk creating a sense of obligation” really mean?  CAP doesn’t know– the statement is far too nebulous to draw a meaningful conclusion.
How Canadian establishment media this is. Here is Justin’s comment on the situation: Trudeau. Mr. Justin was saddened by the news of the sudden passing of Barry and Honey Sherman.” 
That’s it? Why on earth was Trudeau not questioned( read interrogated) regarding his connection to the deaths of the Sherman billionaires? Does it not appear there was a strong enough connection to warrant an investigation?
Damn straight there was–so why did it never occur? CAP Answer: Because the media turned a blind-eye. Why would they do this? Because Trudeau and advisor Gerald Butts told them to do so.
How can we verify this to be the case? We cannot. However, we can put forth the idea that Justin Trudeau’s billion dollar media pay-outs may have something to do with this situation.
It is not the first time media has disassociated Trudeau with grisly murders. Consider the case of 13-year old Melissa Shen. This Canadian girl was allegedly murdered in 2017 by a Syrian refugee said to have killed her in a park in suburban Vancouver. What happened subsequently? Canadians do not know–because media  have buried the case.
What connection did media make between the Shen murder, and the fact that the accused is happens to be one of Justin Trudeau’s chosen Syrian refugees–the people Trudeau stated he was “personally responsible for”  after their arrival in 2015-2016.
They made no connection whatsoever. Same situation applies to the Danforth Murders of two teenage Canadian girls by another Syrian refugee in 2018. Who is responsible for this person’s intake to Canada?
Immigration Minister, MP Ahmed Hussen. What statement did he make regarding the tragic double-murder? Nothing at all. Yet, next to King Justin, the Somalian refugee Hussen is the person most responsible for the intake, vetting and approval for the Danforth killer to come to Canada.
What to conclude? CAP will tell you: Immigration policy is more important to government than dead Canadian school girls. Refugee policy takes precedence over the lives of 13-year old Canadian girls.
Protecting Justin Trudeau is more important than the truth about and why Barry and Honey Sherman died in a most gruesome capacity. This is Justin Trudeau’s Canada. This is the scheming Gerald Butts, and the arrogant Ahmed Hussen.
You see, for these types, nothing is more important than maintaining control of the destiny of our nation. Crime, homicide, child murder be damned— we are living in the Liberal-Trudeau-Globalist Canada.
Within this nation, ideology is king. A globalist agenda of democratic erosion takes precedence over the murdered and the dead. Can one think of other nations which fall into this category?
What form of governance places ideology above the health and welfare of their citizenship? CAP followers(not snowflakes) will know the answer: totalitarian regimes. China, Cuba, Iran, Saudi Arabia, et al.
In other words, communist and theocratic dictatorships–the Trudeau family’s favourite form of governance. Putting the pieces together, common sense Canadians can see that these behaviours of government and media emulate that of say, China.
Bingo-there you have it. From CAP, anyway. Chances mainstream media will expose any element of what is being written here? Zero-nothing, nada.
Under King Justin, we have witnessed the erasure of a number of elements of freedom and democracy in Canada–freedom of speech, freedom of press, and to some extent, freedom of consciousness. This is a core element of communist ideology, and so is the cover-up of dirt which could damage the reputation of government.
Ringing any bells? For CAP, the longer Justin Trudeau is prime minister, the faster our nation morphs into a Dictatorship at the hands of Trudeau, Butts, Hussen and the rest of the democracy destroyers.


Apotex among 20 generic drug firms accused of vast U.S. price-fixing scheme

The companies conspired to increase prices and agreed to share markets without undercutting their rivals. Then tried to cover their tracks, the civil suit charges

"We have hard evidence that shows the generic drug industry perpetrated a multi-billion-dollar fraud on the American people," said Connecticut’s attorney general.
In the summer of 2013, Canadian-based Apotex and two other generic drug companies each increased the U.S. price of their versions of a blood-pressure medicine by a staggering amount — 1,000 per cent.
According to an eye-opening lawsuit filed by 44 American states, the price hikes for doxazosin were no coincidence.
The various manufacturers of low-cost prescription-drug copies are supposed to be competitors, their rivalry theoretically leading to cheaper drugs.
But in the days before the last of the three firms — Teva Pharmaceutical Industries — raised its price, the Israeli-based company’s director of national accounts, Nisha Patel, spoke by phone a number of times with an Apotex sales executive, the suit claims.
It was typical of the cozy relationship between 20 major generic-drug corporations, and part of a mammoth price-fixing scheme that has cost Americans billions of dollars, alleges a consortium led by Connecticut’s attorney general.
Through phone calls, texts, golf outings, and “girls’ nights out”, the companies conspired to increase prices and agreed to share markets without undercutting their rivals, according to the civil suit, filed May 10 in the U.S. District Court in Connecticut.
Then, as government investigators closed in, Apotex and others tried to cover their tracks, destroying electronic evidence, the suit charges.
It may turn out to be the largest “cartel case” in U.S. history, says William Tong, Connecticut’s attorney general.
“We have hard evidence that shows the generic drug industry perpetrated a multi-billion-dollar fraud on the American people,” said Tong in a statement.
But the companies themselves strongly refute the charges, which have yet to be tested in court. They say the cost increases are caused by external factors, like drug shortages and disruptions caused by regulators’ actions.
“Apotex denies the allegations made against it in the complaint as they are wholly without merit,” said Jordan Berman, the firm’s vice-president of corporate communications. “Apotex intends to vigorously defend the claims.”
My understanding is that even when there have been shortages in Canada, prices haven’t moved much

The Apotex cited in the complaint is the U.S. subsidiary of the Toronto-based company. The case concerns the practices of companies operating south of the border, whose relevance to the Canadian situation is unclear.
All provinces now impose price ceilings — as low as 10 per cent of the brand-name version of a drug — so it would be all but impossible for companies to conspire to set artificially high prices in Canada, said Aiden Hollis, a drug-policy expert at the University of Calgary.
“My understanding is that even when there have been shortages in Canada, prices haven’t moved much, so this doesn’t support the collusion hypothesis,” he said.
And yet, Canadian prices for generic drugs were only slightly lower than American prices on average in 2016, according to a report last year by the Patented Medicines Price Review Board.
That report compared the government-mandated price caps here to the list prices in the States, before buyers negotiated lower retail price, said Amir Attaran, a University of Ottawa law professor and health-policy expert.
So, without the collusion alleged in the States, the generic manufacturers’ Canadian operations seem to enjoy much the same benefits, he charged.
“These price ceilings are not competition,” said Attaran. “They’re actually prices controlled at a level that the industry, as kabuki theatre, whines about, but the industry is secretly delighted about.”
The American lawsuit is an expanded version of an earlier case, stemming from five years of investigation spearheaded by Tong’s office in Connecticut.
Drawing on subpoenaed documents and telephone records and evidence from cooperating witnesses, the lawsuit paints a picture of collusion designed to curb competition and inflate prices – and centred largely around Teva.
That alleged conspiracy occurred online and by phone, but also in person, such as at a 2014 gathering organized by a packaging contractor at a country club in Bowling Green, Ky. Between rounds of golf, a high-level Apotex executive, identified only as J.H., and Teva vice president David Rekethaler even stayed together in the host’s home, the suit says. Rekethaler has since become vice president of sales at Apotex.
As well as the doxazosin price hike, the two companies both doubled the cost of their generic versions of the cholesterol drug pravastatin in 2013, the suit alleges. Earlier that year – with Rekethaler and J.H. “speaking frequently” – Teva also co-ordinated Apotex’s entry into the market for another cholesterol drug in a way that neither company had to lower its price, the complaint claims.
Like many of the companies, Apotex sought to eliminate evidence as the investigation progressed, destroying one employee’s “custodial file” of emails and other electronic communications, alleges the suit.
