Being able to discern the extent to which a spirit of deception and corruption has been holding democracy in PEI pinned to the ground, with a boot firmly on its throat, stifling our ability to hear what’s really going on behind the scenes in government….well, that’s really more a matter of the heart than the head.
If we reserve judgment on moral issues until we have absolute “proof” of every particular allegation of corruption, then it’s unlikely we’ll ever make such a judgment – those involved with the corruption are really good at hiding and destroying evidence.
It’s easy to get caught up in the “weeds of words” listening to both the “accuser” and the “accused” with specific claims, with each side arguing completely opposite positions, making diametrically-opposed claims.
It’s easy to make ourselves sufficiently and conveniently confused about the nature of corruption in the PEI government to just end up telling ourselves that we can’t really be “sure” whether corruption is afoot or not, so we carry on and make no moral “judgement” about the situation, turn a blind eye to what is unacceptable, and take no stand.
Read chapter 2 of my doctoral dissertation titled: “Ethics and the dynamics of self-deception,” if you’re interested in knowing more about how we manipulate our own state of moral awareness, and why we do that, e.g., what goes on in our heads (thoughts) and hearts (feelings) before we do it.
There is another more insightful way to discern truth.
When we rise above the words to evaluate the”spirit” at play behind those words (which requires looking at things from our own spirit) things begin to come into focus on the ethical and spiritual plane.
This seven-day series will shine such a bright light, for all those able to transition from their heads to their hearts…it’s for those truly desiring to see the truth and not run from it.
Each day for the coming week, starting today, I’ll be profiling the position taken by current members of the PC Cabinet exposing the unacceptable nature of the silence we’re hearing from them on egaming since they were elected in May, 2019.
This will be delivered in the light of the “spirit” to highlight the moral ground they stood on while in the Official Opposition, especially during the 2017 fall sitting (the video clip of Myers in today’s episode launching this 7-part series is from November 23, 2017).
You won’t find that clip on the government’s website anymore. All those videos of fierce, fighting tories against the corruption of egaming by the Ghiz Liberals (and continued cover-up of same by his successor, Wade MacLauchlan) have been removed! I don’t know by who, and I don’t know exactly when or why, but see for yourselves:
There should be 22 videos – that’s how many days the House was in session, and that’s how many Hansard transcripts exist from the day the session opened on November 14, 2017 to the closing on December 20, 2017.
I considered they might do that before they considered doing it, so I captured them all for my research. Otherwise, you would not be getting this sickeningly entertaining series I’m about to roll out as follows:
WEEKLONG WALK OF SHAME
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21: STEVEN MYERS
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22: MATTHEW MACKAY
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23: BRAD TRIVERS
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24: JAMES AYLWARD
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25: JAMIE FOX
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26: SIDNEY MACEWAN
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27: DARLENE COMPTON
If these seven Cabinet Ministers decide to get together at any time during this roll-out exposing their disgusting hypocrisy and continued silence about this corruption in government and call a news conference, or issue a statement – doing two things, (1) calling for the Premier to step down, at least until (2) a full investigation can happen by the Attorney General’s office, then I’ll immediately abandon this shaming series as a show of sincere gratitude and support for their moral conversion.

DAY 1: “0H MY MY….MYERS!”
The first clip in today’s episode is one I used in my article just published titled: “BREAKING NEWS: $2 MILLION LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST DENNIS KING FOR EGAMING FRAUD,” which I’m happy to say has received over 12,000 views to date.
Watch this clip with a particular “lens” or filter, namely, put yourself in Steven Myers shoes and try to imagine what he would be thinking while watching this same video – in light of that letter confirming King’s involvement with an “off-site” proposal with the same characters [Chris LeClair and Keith Laslop] as he pounded then Minister Allen Roach about the “secret egaming project” during the opening day of the Spring, 2021 legislature….my second clip below.
Now, as you watch Premier King in the following video clip, stay “transmigrated” in Steven Myer’s body (ew! sorry), look through his eyes at King, and keep the following two things in mind while doing so:
- Myers’ full knowledge of how it was Wes Sheridan, Chris LeClair and Keith Laslop who BROKE THE MOU that was in effect with CMT/FMT, and his extremely strong push to have that acknowledged officially by the former Liberal government of Wade MacLauchlan and investigated by the Attorney General’s office; and,
- Premier King’s unequivocal claim made in response to the very first question when the House opened in Spring, 2021 disavowing any similarity between what he and his government were doing with online gaming, and what happened back in 2010-12 under Premier Ghiz.
Myer’s current silence as a PC Cabinet Minister in government stands is stark, hypocritical contrast to the passionate pleas for justice he made to government as a PC MLA Opposition member.
Myers believed there was a need for an investigation into the goings on between the Finance Minister Wes Sheridan and Chris LeClair and his client, Keith Laslop back because they had contravened the exclusivity and confidentiality clauses of the Memorandum of Understanding in effect with CMT/FMT.
That matter REMAINS BEFORE THE COURT with a considerable degree of additional support for the claim that the MOU was indeed breached by LeClair/Laslop’s dealings with Sheridan, yet Premier King is discussing getting into business (secretly) with a bunch of people outside of government?
That does indeed appear to be what happened, according to a May 21, 2021 email the Premier received from Allan Campbell (Ghiz’s former Chief-of-Staff who replaced Chris LeClair back in October, 2011) using his PC email account, that was just filed in the PEI Supreme Court by Paul Maines last Friday, e.g., , Chris LeClair and Allan Campbell and others doing “prep” and discussing a proposal from gamesys [where was this proposal submitted?? To the PEI government??] WITH PREMIER KING, bringing KEITH LASLOP’s gaming company Gamesys onboard on again with the secretive PEI egaming scheme!
STEVEN MYERS: IF YOU DON’T STAND UP AND DEMAND THAT THE PREMIER STEP DOWN UNTIL SUCH TIME AS AN INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE AND/OR RCMP – THEN YOU ARE THE DEFINITION OF A CORRUPT POLITICIAN!
