Canada Finance Minister Quits Post Amid Charity Scandal

"Look at a chapter of political tunnels. Now here in Canada where yesterday the country's finance. Minister Bill More No. Long one of the prime minister's closest political allies resigned it follows lingering ethics scandal that has surrounded Trudeau's government for some time by this stage well, today a little earlier prime to treat. That Christie Freeland Canada's deputy prime minister would replace bill more now at the finance ministry becoming the first woman to hold that post Donyell. The murmurings around bill more knows future had been simmering hearing the Canadian Press for several days. By the time, his resignation announcement came last night. What's your reaction to? What is yet another high profile resignation from Shudo's cabinets in the five years of says since he took office. Yeah, quite a quite another big controversy four Trudeau in the middle of summer I think you know off the bat whatever reason the liberals are given. Four giving for more knows exit here is a messy one that. It was said that he wouldn't be seeking election. Again, we'll be looking for other opportunities. We know that he'll be looking to helm the AC, which is a great post for him perhaps in a good career move. But at the end of the day, this comes down to. Another sticky situation for the prime minister that really threatens to derail the progress that they've made in. The coronavirus crisis namely their popularity with Canadians. But once again, another distraction for the prime, which raises questions about the ship he sailing and him as the captain let's say. This begs the question of whether Mr Trudeau is simply impossible to work with. Now this is just another controversy that comes only a week Tomasz after we spoke about the last controversy involving. The Governor General Julie Pie itch and the toxic workplace she's been accused of creating butts. The liberals the government to appoint a successor in Canada's first governor of the Bank of Canada and Christina Freelance who held the interesting post of Deputy Prime Minister and not a lot of Canadians were used to to that role before Justin Trudeau but she is his most senior cabinet minister and and now most trusted ally. But that group of People Tomasz as you know is is getting shorter as the months go on. It's seeming time and again, like Trudeau is is just a very tough guy to work with and when he doesn't get his way, well, you get run out of town we should also point out that. Bill, more know. Perhaps. Put. His foot in it and didn't help the situation on on the fact that he wasn't agreeing with the prime minister but we can set that aside they didn't handle that well but also a big controversy besides this is this we charity, of course where. He and his family and the Finance Minister and Bill Maher. Now both have personal and family ties to this charity and should have recused themselves. I don't think that. The, the picture, four Canadians by I think that picture. is becoming more and more for. Canadians. Like. An elite privilege class squabbling over not being able to work together and I think that really does not play well, obviously trudeau lost. His majority after the last election and who knows where it's it's going from here because it doesn't seem like he's going to be able to keep some of his top ministers around for very long?

Lebanon's entire government resigns amid anger over Beirut explosion

"A week after a massive explosion to. All parts of the Lebanese city of Beirut. Apart, the entire government has resigned the massive blast was caused whenever two thousand tons of ammonium nitrate which had been stored unsafely at the port for six years exploded killing over two hundred people injuring more than six thousand and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless over the weekend residents of Beirut demonstrated against the government calling for the removal of the entire political class due to their negligence and corruption. Joining us once again from Beirut is Layla Milana Allen Leyla when we spoke to you yesterday, five politicians had resigned so far. Tell us about the announcement made last night by the prime minister. So what we saw yesterday and the evening before session, all government ministers resigning. We also saw several NPR's goes well, Megyn went from protesters. Here we go one by one this many left to go. and. Then there was the resignation of the finance minister as he wasn't he just before that meeting that was supposed to in the afternoon that cabinet meeting in which prime minister the APP had said that he was going to a table a motion. To try and have the elections is at the State Petunia. So. How's it wasn't said that he would suspend his his resignation until off the meeting they went in and they spent two thousand not room. Getting. Rumors from quite early on in fact, the entire government was going to resign because there were two ways that this could happen. Either has MD could resign himself or if more than a third of his ministers resigned, that would make his cabinet untenable already looking at five. So essentially, just two more and they were already two minutes to said before they went through, they would resign if the government didn't as Walter a couple of hours they came out and those announcement saying that he would speak in the evening. And when he did speak, he came forward and he said. That they had tried their best to be transparent tried to Rama transparent government. She's January failed to impose some of the reforms that Lebanon. So desperately needed but endemic corruption in the government had made it impossible to do so had caused this tragedy. Now, of course, many people don't feel that's the case they feel that the government was not run transparently at all. Or none of the reforms that has promised January. Would be done in six months word done within six months, and of course we now know. That both the president and the prime. minister. WED Two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of money not great was in the Port as worse excessive government none of them do anything about it. So the government's gone but is going to be a change in the system will the same sectarian politics driving the unrest still exist? Not at the moment now, sectarian politics is really driving some rest. There are a few elements here. Firstly, the the problem with the government system is not that it's impossible to run because the country says sectarian, it's the it's impossible to have a government which allows the country to not be sectarian young people on the streets is saying that's not what they want. They want to country that will come together and work together where people are elected based on their merit not based on what sector they come from but because the political system is original on these lines where each sect gets a certain number of seats innocent area firstly, it's impossible to have that kind of government that is responsible for the entire country doesn't have. Interest in certain places, and secondly, it means only a certain kind of person can be elected because there is such entrenched nepotism in politics and you need the money and connections to be able to run and succeed. So right now, what's going to happen is that as we saw late last year when Prime Minister I've had resigned, the current government will stay on in a Catholic capacity. There's not much they can do in that capacity they will meet rally and they will only be able to put in bills or emergency bills to keep the country going, of course, Lebanon ready needed proper legislation to come in and change things before this explosion now, really function of government. To get things moving the country who built and help people that's not going to happen under a caretaker government but the system is so complex in terms of trying to elect a new prime minister different block in Palm. As I say, these different sectarian blocks have to agree on the candidates and then he has to find a cabinet that pleases all of this -Tarian blocks each of whom will want their own cows come in that. Again, what we're going to see in the coming weeks is this political game. All aimed at making the right formation balance of people in power rob. Then a government trudy is just focused on what is best for the Lebanese people purchase street saying this is the same old system. Nothing's going to change a new election won't help us. Cabinet won't help us. We need a complete overhaul of its system which has dragging us down and letting the country move forward.

The agreement comes after the Italian. Prime Minister Giuseppe County warned that the EU could fail as a project without decisive action. Mario's Tanno is chairman of the Euro Group of finance ministers. These response contains bold and ambitious proposals. That will that be unsinkable? Just a few weeks ago. We can't remember the response to the financial crisis of the last decade when Europe did too little too late. This time around is different so with five hundred billion euros in the package. Where will it go? Economics correspondent is under Walker. There are three safety. Nets Mr Santino. Called them that he has in mind. That need bolstering And they are for individuals people who become unemployed. They are for businesses that are struggling to get through the sudden loss of revenue that they have in there he had in particular in mind small and medium size enterprises and then finally there is an element in this prevent this package for individual EU member states. Money that will be used to lend to them to help them Pay specifically for all their direct and indirect healthcare costs associated with dealing with the new corroded arse corona bond idea. It didn't get a great as I think we we rather expected. This is an idea that under which euro-zone countries would borrow joint K. On the financial markets they would be jointly responsible for ensuring that the money was repaid. It was quite an attractive as there are clearly some countries that are to some countries because they some of them are in financial under financial stress.

But as a result of what's been happening in In terms of the virus but countries where had come and finances are already rather strong do have their own domestic political difficulties with an arrangement that would see them.

How does what has been agreed today? Compared to previous you rescue packages one. Pretty quick isn't it with the The hero on financial crisis. It took the M- I would say significantly longer this time I suppose that there's no element of blaming anybody for bringing this healthcare crisis upon the EU. It's an genuinely is an external shock with the euro zone crisis. There was some strong cases for saying that at least in some cases it reflected policy mistakes by euro-zone governments. So that's an important difference And I suppose there is also the fact that this is also directed not more widely if you like. It's not just about shoring. Up Government finances.

Of course, quite notably Nigeria, of course, you know, sciatica quite interestingly Swaziland actually renamed now. What they need more properly a believe have more favorable stances towards cryptocurrencies, which I think which I think is a good thing. If you guys will Reserve Bank governors or Reserve Bank deputies or even finance ministers with DVD's in pick any one of the larger countries on our continent. Some of the big economies, maybe feel Pia Nigeria South Africa. You know, what would you add it should be? What's the most constructive standpoint to have around this because they are very real risks? We know that the digital assets debase one will unpack in a future in a future series.

So that was twelve months ago that was stolen Tsegaye when the process point have you joined a gang. You will have to if you invested lost year. Exactly, I think for me is is you know, almost take a step back from from the cryptos themselves. But the fact of the matter is blockchain is here to stay.

Apple can move intellectual property to island, but it cannot put it shelled as their fundamental tax reform can boost growth and make societies more equal as the labor market continues to polarize between Haiyan us and everyone else. Income taxes should be low or negative for the lowest earners. The difficulty is getting policymakers to knuckle down to this unglamorous.
