"That's 8884 Town Square. But first we're going to kick off the conversation with a separate but related topic. Social justice. The University of Houston's racial Equity and Social Justice Committee is presenting the virtual form. George George Floyd, Where are we? After one year? It's tomorrow at noon, and it commemorates the one year anniversary of George Floyd's funeral by discussing policing justice, hate crimes and more joining us Now to talk about all of that are Dr Elwyn See leave, vice president of community relations and institutional access. At the University of Houston and co chair of the Racial Equity and Social Justice Committee. Hello there, Dr Lee Good morning. Good afternoon. Rather, I wish it was morning. It's been a long morning for me if it is thank you for joining us, and also Dr Sandra Guerra Thompson, who is professor of law and director of the Criminal Justice Institute at the University of Houston. Welcome Dr Gary Thompson. Thank you for having me. You're also on the mayor's task force for policing reform. Which gives you an extra, um, incentive to be part of this panel tomorrow, and I'm curious. I'll start with you, Professor. Your thoughts on why it's important to have this on the one year anniversary of the funeral. Well, you know, I think that the the tragedy of the George flood case And the resultant, you know, Movement for social justice. Have, really, um Have really created a responsibility for us to to take To take account of this moment and to to really figure out where are we Have? We made any progress? What are the obstacles to progress that remain and what can we do? And so I really look forward to hearing from all of the other Panelists tomorrow and to, um providing whatever input I can. Dr Lee. One very important part of this panel tomorrow is looking at the psychological impact of the George Floyd death and the subsequent events. Your feelings on what we may hear or what you've experienced in this one year. Well, one of the things that we saw immediately prior to his death, and after his death was the amazing trauma that spread throughout the land the side of Man spending nine minutes, killing Joyce Floyd on television traumatized a lot of people, particularly African Americans. Recall that one of the jurors and the Derek Chauvin trial Was asked what was the hardest part of Trial, he said. It was having to sit there and be traumatized by seeing that video over and over. Uh and I think we'll hear that trauma has an accumulative effect. Because in addition to what happened to George for us there were incidents prior to that, and they have been killing after that, and we need to take that into account and acknowledged that and think about How we might relieve some of that trauma. So Dr Wheeler Walker is an expert in that she'll make some comments about how we might be able to do that. Yeah, uh, Professor Gary Thompson. I'm also curious. We just mentioned the show trial and the conviction does that help in the healing process? Or is it just one piece in a much bigger puzzle? Well, I think it has already helped in the healing process. Um, you know, and that's um the the hope in every criminal case where there are victims. And survivors that you know that that the system will bring some closure and will bring some healing. But it's only a beginning. And it's only one case. Um and you know for for true Healing. I think we need to see some progress in terms of other kinds of more lasting reforms as well. Yeah. Dr. Lee talked to me a little bit about that. So often, I've asked this question. A number of times on this program is we keep talking. After each one of these incidences and granted, George Floyd got a lot more of the spotlight than many of them. But after each one, there's talk of change, and there's concern and we hear lawmakers very outraged, and they're going to make a difference. And then we fall back to the status quo again and it continues to happen. What should give us hope this time? Well, I think we're waiting to see if this will spark some change that will give us hope. The fact that it was different may give us hard, but we have to acknowledge that there was some very unique things about I mean, look what it took to get us to point to even have a trial many times when they're these situations, there aren't indictment And historically, uh it's very difficult to have police. Uh, convicted And so this was apparently a very Fairchild and the verdict was guilty. But there were many special things about it that you typically do not have. I'll just mentioned, um to one. You have this video, which was so clear, so dominant, prominent, which you often don't have that with that level of clarity. And the second thing is you had so many of the police officers and the trainers. And the blue people in blue testify against Derek Shelvin, so that those are two very unusual usual things. And so, uh, We hope that's a That's a model for going forward, particularly with respect to them. Police officers being willing to testify. In trials like this. Yeah, Professor Professor Gary Thompson. Do we see police? Accountability Changing. Is there a period that was pre George Floyd and Post George flight? Is that going to be something we will notice in the future? Well, you know, I think there are some structural obstacles to change, um, and collective bargaining agreements that have many protections for police officers. And and and by protections. I mean, that can really make it very difficult to to move forward with prosecutions and investigations and these kinds of cases. Um And so you know, until we see some movement in terms of some of those structural obstacles, and and this, you know, varies from state to state. Um, but but those can can really be a hindrance to Prosecutors who may try to go forward with a prosecution. Do you think that there are certain police reforms that could happen relatively quickly? That would make an impact on this, Uh, universally, or is it is it so in some ways in bread, and then within each community viewed differently, that it's hard to make a statement like that? It's very hard to draw general, uh, you know, to make general statements about law enforcement because there are so many independent agencies and, uh, you know, even in Texas, you know, in in the Harris County area, we have almost 50 different law enforcement agencies. They each have their own policies. Um, instead of, you know, collective bargaining agreements and the like, and then you have all the different state and federal laws as well. So, um, I think we You know there is a cultural shift going on, and I think that's reflected in the fact..

"Decks than allowed candidate kind of rebuilding their own vision. Oh, how the police would work with the citizens. But they had to start by kind of cutting off the head of the multi headed animal, which is the police union. So this will be the battle in most cities across the United States. It's not just enough to go into the streets and set fires and screaming, yelling, Mayor everything. You have to go to the police unions in order to be able to have some sort of change to occur. Well, there's a lot of changes that you're going to see. I think I've told you guys before there's dozens of police reform bills. They're gonna make their way to the Legislature. There's stuff going on at the local level and met many counties and, of course in Seattle, But, yeah, you're right to really regain community trust. Mayor Durkin says the Legislature is going to have to make a change to state labor laws, basically, to give more power to the chiefs that when the chief actually discipline an officer for misconduct, whether they fire them or discipline some ways. That discipline sticks. The system today gives the ability to have a whole new trial after the chief makes her decision with maybe whole new evidence. That's out of step with what we want accountability to be. We want officers to have due process. We want chief to make her decision based on the best evidence. But then, when the chief does act that decisions should be upheld unless it's clearly erroneous. In some way. If the Legislature makes that change, if when a police chief or other decider fires of bad police officer or sustains that there's no no misconduct. Will be a lot more confidence in it. If that decision, Khun Stick now I know I've talked to multiple lawmakers who are heading up the police reform efforts in the Legislature on both the House and the Senate side Democrats, though all Democrats that I've talked to you about this. I know there is an appetite among some Republicans, including some Republicans, who are cops who are part of these conversations that are ongoing about these bills or to come up. And I hear from the leaders over in the Senate Law and Justice Committee that they are feeling pretty confident about the ability to get through something that will deal specifically with arbitration so that you can't do what Mayor Durkin is talking about right there. Where, if you know you're fired, like of course, the big case in Seattle was the average Shepard case where he was seen on the video punching the woman in handcuffs. He was fired and then arbitration. He was un unfired, and that set off the consent decree judged and that's why they're still in the consent decree, at least in part. So this is so complicated because one of the concerns that people on the left have liberals or, you know labor people is that if you Congar after arbitration with the police union, you could go after arbitration with any union at least if there's a consistency involved, and so there's a lot of traditional Democratic support, that's a little leery about trying to curb Or crib, the negotiations that the police union have successfully done to include arbitration, right? That's what makes this. He's like stuck between a rock and a hard place. I would think. Well, that's one of the things that makes it very, very difficult. But also the police unions themselves are a T's. Some of them are pretty adamantly against this. In fact, my colon, the head of the Seattle police officers killed Told Crosscut today. He's absolutely against it. But you know that cross got talk to senator win to who is One that you would say is going to for serving, you know, one of the farther to the left Democrats who you think might be OK getting this through and and he's got some doubts. Roger Goodman that the cross got talk to you. I've talked to him multiple times about this. I've heard him say he doesn't think that might well get across the finish line. But then I heard him say, you know what? Actually, there's an appetite for it, so it's going to remain to be seen. I don't know, given the way that the Election played out. If it's better for this effort or not, it's hard to tell. But I do know Senator Jamie Peterson, who chairs the Law Justice Committee. He had told me previously that because there was kind of a break, especially specifically as I had to do with protests And the police unions in I think it was over this last summer with the Martins working Labor Council and some other unions had kind of distanced themselves from them. So that's why he thought there was maybe some fracturing there that might present an opportunity. And and the mayor's hopeful You can hear this right here, you know, usually takes two sessions to get a bill through. But because the Legislature is going to be operating differently, they've reduced their agenda. So police reforms are number one on their agenda, And this is one of those ideas that will require both the support of labor and the support of police and the support of Activists and others. I think we can get this done, Andi. I think that if we make this small change, it doesn't impact that many cases, but each one of those cases has an oversized impact on public confidence. And so I think if we could make that change in Olympia, it will make bargaining much easier here in Seattle. I guess The other good news is the 2019 use of force for the Seattle Police Department measured the rate of one quarter of 1% out of nearly 400,000 incidents, putting Seattle Police Department at near one of the lowest in the country when it comes to use of force, So that's the good news that it doesn't happen that often When it comes to public perception, it would be really good for these People that are in positions of power for public perception for the perception of the public to perceive what is the reality is to be able to speak in terms of not hyperbole and not talking about police being murderers or killers, but to be able to just simply always put into perspective of what the true numbers are, when measured against the metrics that have been put in place by the City Council by the police by the consent decree. As to measuring how the police work effectively, as opposed to using words like murderers or killers or systematic racism or systemic racism that the police themselves have a true deep rooted problem. When it comes to dealing with people of minorities. That's the problem is the hold on one second we finished is the public perception..

Opposition MPs turn to ethics committee to probe SNC-Lavalin affair

"Canadians will have yet another chance to possibly hear the full story behind the scandal. That has completely changed both the image. They have of their prime minister and the landscape of the coming election. So will they know probably not for a whole bunch of reasons. If you wanna know how things are really going in Ottawa these days track down your grade. Seven civics textbook. Flip it open to the section densely packed with the arcane rules of parliamentary procedure, and then realize that there are tens of millions of dollars worth of politicians, and lawyers and advisers and pundits. And editors all trying to decipher the implications of the same damn stuff that they ignored back in middle school. And most of them are screaming at each other while they do welcome to the SNC laflin scandal part. I don't know part thirty six the part where the opposition asks again, and the government refuses again, and we all wonder how the hell Canadians will actually get the answers they want. And as it turns out, there are a few ways that that could happen whether Justin Trudeau lakes or not. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story for MAC mcsweeney is the parliament hill reporter for city news for Rogers radio for the big story too. I is it going it's going well, except that this is the scandal that won't go away. And something new is about to happen today. It's going on Tuesday in Ottawa. Well, the ethics committee is meeting this afternoon to discuss the SNC lavon affair. I it's the second committee. That's going to be taking a look at all of this. And the conservatives have put forward a motion to basically launch another investigation into this affair after the Justice committee probe was shut down by the liberal majority on the committee after hearing from several key witnesses in this controversy on budget day, the committee decided that they had heard enough that they didn't need to hear anymore. Testimony on the. This and they were going to move on without coming to any sort of final report. They just let sort of you know, these witnesses air their stories and left it at that. And so now, the opposition is pushing for more testimony more witnesses. They're also calling for the prime minister to further wave privilege in all of this. So that they can get the rest of the story if you will. And so that's what we're waiting on to see whether the liberal majority on this committee, and since they're majority government, they have a majority on these committees. Whether they will allow another investigation after shutting down the first one, why would I mean, not to be partisan or anything? But like if they shut it down on the last committee, what is going to change this time, Jordan, if you're betting man, the odds would be against the liberals actually allowing this investigation to go through. And if if they're lines from the last. Committee investigation, and the reasoning as to why they shut that down will be used in this one of then you can expect the liberals to just simply say, look we've heard everything we need to hear within Canadians can make up their own minds about what happened. It's time to move on the former attorney general had had the chance to fully tell her story on whether or not she was pressured into all of this. And and that's that. So I I just imagine that they won't, but we'll have to wait and see you can you can never fully predict something in politics. And this controversy is is is proof of that. Because I don't think last year at this time anybody could even have had the idea that we'd be in this situation right now discussing the liberals polling numbers dropping the conservatives. Well, ahead of the liberals over a controversy that you know, had pitted. He liberal cabinet ministers against the prime minister's office. I I don't. Anybody could have predicted something like this. So where we go from here who really knows. The odds are against the fact that the liberals would would agree to this ethics investigation. What does a committee investigation typically, look like any way, and how typical or atypical was the Justice committee when they often are related to public policy issues and not sort of surrounded by controversies like we're seeing here. So it is unusual in that sense where it's not a common occurrence where we're having these major scandals that committees are investigating, but the committees are an avenue for parliamentarians to investigate things like this, especially when there are serious allegations, such as what we have here that the prime minister's office was putting improper pressure on the attorney general to make specific decision in a case that was before the AG the allegations are serious, and where you fall on after the testimony. I mean, I guess. It all depends on who you believe in the end, but they're serious enough allegations at I think, it was appropriate and even the liberals agreed that it was appropriate that the Justice committee look at this topic. So the Justice committee investigation was ended and the liberal said at that point, the essentially there were no stories left to tell the conservatives wanted ethics investigation because they say, there are still stories left to tell what don't we know because I know Jodie Wilson rebel and Jane Philpott have both spoken about this. But the conservatives want them to talk about other aspects of the affair the ordering council that was given by the prime minister to waive solicitor, client privilege and cabinet confidence to allow Jodie Wilson Ray bold and others involved in the allegations of improper pressure to freely speak about all of this that only applies for the time that Jodie Wilson rave old was attorney general so in relation to the SNC case one. She left and was shuffled out of the Justice. File she basically couldn't talk about what happened when she moved veterans affairs and on that shuffle day. That's where the story ends both Jodie Wilson Ray, bold. And Jane Philpott another minister, she was treasury board. President does she was involved in that shuffle decided to quit cabinet because she had lost confidence in the government's handling of the essence affair, but both Jane Philpott and Jodie Wilson. Ray bowled say that there is more to the story and Philpott spoke recently with mcclain's last week saying there is much more to this that needs to be told and because the order in council that granted the waving of all the privilege only ends when Jodie Wilson. Ray gold's left the attorney general's position. There are still questions about what happened after that. What was said after that in conversations with the prime minister between a Wilson Ray Gould's. And Justin Trudeau or others in his office such as Gerald butts, his former principal adviser because there were questions about that Jodie Wilson rebel did say that she thought that she was being pushed out of the position because of the SNC decision all conversations that happened after she left that position. She can't talk about. And so that's the big question. Mark over this. What else is there to say? And we still don't know the only way we will find out is if we hear from Jodi Wilson rebelled or Jane Philpott if she decides to talk about this. And you know, the question now is will we hear from them? And what will we hear from them if they decide to speak out in any form, how could they do guys? So there are many different ways that they could we could have another ordering council from the prime minister's office that extends the waving of privilege to go beyond. Johnny Wilson Ray Boltz time as attorney general. So if the prime minister. Decides to do that you know that would give her the free and clear because as a lawyer as attorney general to Canada, you're essentially, the government's lawyer and solicitor client privilege means that discussions around things that are not allowed to be made public a campy made public on unless you get you know, the permission of your client, which in this case would be the government and the prime minister. So if he decided to do that that would give Jodie Wilson Ray bowled, the the chance to speak possibly Jane Philpott, as well, what are the chances that that happens given that they shut down the Justice committee investigation, while the prime minister's already indicated that he doesn't think that there needs to be a further waving of privilege. He hasn't said in those exact terms, I don't believe. But when asked about this several times over the last couple of weeks about further, waving privilege. He has come back to the fact that he believes that the former attorney general Jodie Wilson rebelled was able to address all of the. The issues on the question at hand. Which is was there. Improper pressure on the over the essence he case he feels that the initial waving of privilege answered that question or allowed her to tell her full story on that question. She says there's more to the story. But he he believes that enough has come out already. He's satisfied with what he's heard. And he says Canadians have heard enough to make a determination about whether or not. There was any improper pressure in this case. So does she have any other options than if she wanted to get her truth out? This is interesting because recently there have been more and more calls about what is known as parliamentary privilege, and this is the idea that you can say anything you want in the house of Commons as an MP, and you are not going to be held responsible in any legal way for what you say in the house of Commons. I mean, you could get kicked out of the house of Commons, but you can say almost anything. And you know, they're they're free from defamation. Lawsuits are free from any kind of legal consequences for what they say in the house of Commons. So with that being said the question has been raised recently by a number of liberal MP's who seem to be getting frustrated with this whole scandal saying, well, why don't they just stand in the house and say what they have to say if this is so important to the national conversation about SNC laflin and the functioning of our government than just get out with it. Stand up in the house and say something, but there are limitations to that. It's not as simple as that. When you get up to in the house of Commons. The there's a procedure here, and you have to follow that procedure. Otherwise, you won't be recognized by the speaker, and you can't get up and speak. It's not a free for all. So as much as parliamentary privilege trumps all other privileges, meaning that solicitor, client privilege and cabinet confidence. Don't apply when it comes to parliamentary privilege and speaking in the house of Commons. They can only speak at certain times. So they. Could speak either Philpott or Jodie Wilson Ray bowled, but let's focus on Wilson rebelled since she's the person at the center of ultras. She could give a member statement every day before question period. Members have a chance to stand up and give what's called an SO thirty one standing thirty one. Which means they have about a minute to say, whatever the heck they want a minute is not along though. I think she spent around four hours testifying so run minute is really not a lot of time to get to the heart of the matter. Another thing she could do is stand up in the house of Commons and raise a point of personal privilege. This goes back to the argument that if it is so important to the nation and given the allegations that the AG felt improper pressure standing up in the house of Commons on a point of privilege could be a very valid point to make and she would have more time to speak at a point of personal privilege, if she felt her privileges were, you know, breached in some way through this scandal, which seems to be what she has. Been talking about since the start since these allegations came out, so she could do that. But even then the speaker doesn't always let you just go on and on for four hours the other the other option that I just want to squeeze in here, the one that that could give them a little bit more time to speak, but it might take some participation of the opposition members. Which would just make things really weird and awkward considering these two members are still members of the liberal party. But if there is a motion, a when you speak in the house of Commons, it has to be relevant to what is at hand. So, you know, if you raise a point of personal privilege, what follows has to be related to that point. If there's a motion from the opposition. And there have been a couple of motions already so they had the option to potentially speak. If there's a motion before the house of Commons. They could get up and speak to that any MP really has a right to get up and speak to emotion that is before the house as a part of normal debate. And then they take questions from the other parties about. What they had just said in their statement. They're limited on time with that though, they could get, you know, consent to continue on speaking and opposition MP's could also share their time. So if they decided to speak, then maybe a conservative MP would say, you know, what I'm going to hand my time over to Jodie Wilson rebelled to allow her to have. Yeah. Keep going keep going. So that's one thing that could happen. But that takes some agreement behind the scenes, and it would be rather unusual for an MP of the sitting governing party to strike some sort of deal with position MP's to have more time to speak in that scenario on the the final one that could be, but is unlikely as unanimous consent to make a statement in the house of Commons, three unanimous, consent and peace can do almost anything. They want in the house of Commons. If all MP's agree then anything's possible. So if Wilson Rabaul says, I have a statement. Wanna make it in the house of Commons. I'm seeking unanimous consent to give that statement at whatever time if every single party an MP agrees. Nobody objects when that motion is put forward to the speaker. Then they could do that. We'll have to wait and see whether they try to take advantage of that. Because you know, there are other avenues that they could take. In the meantime, to to try and get their story out with so many avenues. And so many people kind of calling from his Wilson Ray bowl to to speak to what she says is still left to be told. It seems strange to me. And please correct me if I'm wrong that the prime minister is willing to let this be dragged out so much as opposed to realizing that it's probably going to be addressed anyway and an opening up a a way for her to talk does that I am I way off base here. Does that not seem strange to anybody else auto from the early stages of this controversy? There have been a lot of criticisms from pundits. And political experts. About the way the Trudeau government has handled. This the conservatives argue that the liberal story keeps changing every day. I I don't think that's fair because I think it's not that it's changed. It's just that. They only allowed little bits to come out. Yeah. In dribs and drabs, and that kind of helps keep this thing going and a lot of people were confused about why they chose that strategy rather than just the rip the band aid off strategy. Get it out there get it out all on the table. You've got months to go before an election. You can deal with the damage early on let some heads roll. And for people who might be responsible. If there's if there was any wrongdoing and then just move on. Because that's the, you know, as some political experts have said, that's the way you deal with a controversy like this in politics. There have been some questions about the handling of this from the Trudeau government, and whether they they handle this properly. The at all. But now we're in a in a situation where it seems like every few days or at least once a week. We've got a new thing coming out last week before the budget. It seemed like the Trudeau government was trying to put this to bed. We saw the clerk of the Privy Council resign on the Monday. The prime minister announced that he was going to appoint a new adviser to advise the government, and and released recommendations on how they can change the relationship between the government and the attorney general, which you know, the big question there is do you split Justice minister role and attorney general role. And then the budget was the day that the Justice committee ended the investigation into the SNCF air. We we've now found out that the the prime minister spoke with Jodie Wilson Ray bowled on the Monday about the next steps, and he called it a cordial conversation. So one assumes that he was giving her the heads up about the actions that were were happening. On the Monday and Tuesday. But then by the Friday, Jodie Wilson Rabo publicly announced that she's going to be giving a written submission to the Justice committee complete with text messages and emails which she had promised to produce. But also some new evidence in her possession. So whenever she decides to submit that written submission. It's going to put this story back in the headlines, and we're gonna be talking about it yet. Again, not only that but the opposition has done its work to try and keep the story in the headlines disrupting the budget by delaying the speech, and then when Finance Minister Bill more, no spoke, they banged their desks and drowned him out than staged a walkout on break weeks when it was feared that the liberals might get a little bit of a break from coverage. That's when all these emergency committee meetings are happening, including the ethics committee meeting that we're talking about. So the opposition has been doing its work to try and keep this in the headlines despite some criticisms that they. Of they went to extreme too fast with the calling of the resignation of the prime minister that they kind didn't have anywhere else to go. The they promised us every tool in the toolbox. And it seems like they're they're continuing to do that. And look we're talking about it. So I guess if that's their goal to keep us talking about it. Then they're achieving that goal despite whether it was the best way or not politically speaking, of course. Oh god. I means we're gonna talk about this till October doesn't chrome. Yeah. I fully expect, you know, there are questions about whether there's going to be an early campaign call from the prime minister, and that we'd be heading to the polls this spring, not the fall, which doesn't fully make sense in in the basic way that the band aid off a. Yeah, it just doesn't make you know, you look at the facts, the liberals are pulling at their lowest point, I think in Justin Trudeau's mandate, so far you've got months to go to repair the damage, including the summer vacation where a lot of Canadians just tune out of the news. And then tune back in the fall where you can kind of reset the narrative again, you know, there there are those options out there for the prime minister. So an early election, call would seem odd, but the conservatives are pouncing on on that speculation and trying to fundraise off of it saying we need money now there could be an early election. So the opposition parties are are enjoying this because they got the fundraise off of it. But you know, the prime minister's office has been clear has been asked many many times over. The last year. Will there be an early election? They've never wavered from the fact that they said that they're going to stick with the fixed election date that prime minister Stephen Harper had put in place of October. Although that's not technically binding, you can break it. And I think Harper did as well. So it's not technically binding, but Justin Trudeau promised in October vote. And I think this is going to be one of those issues that the opposition continues to hammer on the campaign trail so to answer your question. Yeah. I think we will still be talking about this in October, regardless of what the election results will be last question are these stories from MS Wilson, Rabo them as Philpott going to come out some way like it seems inevitable now to me and my wrong about that. What's your thought? Here's the issue. Both Wilson Ray bold. And Jane Philpott have said that they have their concerns in. They're very cautious about the issues of solicitor, client privilege and cabinet confidentiality. Now, we spoke earlier. Earlier about how they could get up in the house, and they could say anything they want in the house of Commons and be protected from any legal consequences when they speak in the house because they enjoy parliamentary privilege, which allows which trumps all other privileges, and confidences, etc. So they could do that. But there hasn't to do something like that Jane Philpott in her interview with mcclain's was asked. Why don't you just do that as she said? Part of the issue is is timing. Of course, an and we went through that pretty clearly that there are limitations on how long they can speak in. If they've got another four hours worth of testimony. It's not going to be easy to use the house of Commons as the avenue to get that story out so Philpott aside from timing Philpott also gave a very interesting answer about the dynamic in liberal caucus and her relationship with colleagues, which I think is another aspect to all of this is really focused on it was fascinating to hear. Because you don't always hear that. She was talking about how a lot of her colleagues. Again, she is still a liberal MP. And the prime minister has given no indication that he plans to boot either Philpott or Wilson Ray bolt from his caucus Philpott has said that her actions and her decision to quit cabinet has created a lot of uneasiness amongst people who used to be closer colleagues in caucus, and she feels that some feel that her motives are not that that she's doing something that sort of works against the party, and that's creating friction with people. She never used to have friction with. And so she opened up a little bit about the personal struggles that she has in doing what she's doing. But says she's trying to you know, do what she's always done in. That is a take a moral stand. She doesn't care about what happens to her as a result of that. But clearly those personal relationships are taking toll for Jody Wilson Ray bowl. You know, you have not only cabinet confidence as as a concern out of all of this. But you also have. Hitter client privilege, and so there's some caution there because they don't want to break this oath that they made to the country so lightly just because people are saying we'll just get out and say it in the house of Commons. There's a very serious oath that you take when you join cabinet where you agree to serve her majesty the Queen and to keep all of the secrets that are held as a privy counsellor it to keep those secret essentially os are not usually easily broken by people who take those oaths they feel passionately about what they do regardless of political stripe. So that's something else. It sort of weighing over both Jodie Wilson Ray bold and Jane Philpott about whether they just get out there and tell their story, despite the fact that there's personal privilege whether or not we got the full story out of this. You know, there are avenues for both the Trudeau government and for Jody Wilson Rabo than Jane Philpott to make the decision to get that full story out. Whether they take those those avenues is another question altogether. And we'll just have to wait and see.

Justin Trudeau engulfed in corruption scandal

"No one's leaning on the UK's attorney general to get into change his legal advice on Brexit in Canada. Though, the allegation that the equivalent figure the minister of Justice was placed under undue pressure by the prime minister's office is turning into a major political scandal this week for the first time Justin Trudeau the PM try to explain himself. He defended requests made to Jodie Wilson rebelled. The now ex Justice minister to avoid criminal trial for big Canadian company accused of corruption s NC lavender, which employs nine thousand people in Canada was accused of bribing Libyan officials to secure contracts. They're under Canadian law, a conviction would Intel potentially crippling decade-long ban or bidding for government business until now Mr. Trudeau has been a rockstar politician young personable good-looking, the neophyte you took his party from third to first place in the twenty fifteen federal election. Matthew laser in Quebec? Where essence lands based says his image has taken a real hit. If you're not at the rules, for example from this week in Las many points. The liberals were thirty nine points in January now down to thirty four and the conservative for the first time ahead with three five. The main problem here is that when he reacted on Thursday in front of the media did not apologize. It just recognized. There was an issue at he said, he was a breach of confidence between his principal secretary and former attorney general, but if you look at your sides in really things they did nothing wrong. So why would he apple joy on the the detail of this story, the allegation appears to be that this official in his office who has resigned was putting in the view of the Justice secretary, former Justice minister, putting undue pressure on her over this case of SNC level. But no one is suggesting the prime minister himself was directly involved. So what's the problem? Do you think for Justin Trudeau in these allegations in a way, the prime minister? Sorry spoke to as well he met her in September. And she told him she made our decision, and he just replied why once she reconsider everything and checks to do it. So Trudeau was involved as well in it. But the problem is is entire prime minister office spoke to her several times ten times total she's saying that she felt that was a lot of pressure. So this is why we think it tarnishes Troodos image the paradox. I suppose is that it could be quite a popular thing to be seen by many Canadians to have done because by trying to get this kind of deal arrangements that the company was keen on on which the prime minister seemed to be keen on a have potentially safeguarded thousands of jobs. That's the main argument from the liberal party. They're saying that could save nine thousand jobs at risk why. Because essence eleven just said that if they lose the trial there might just leave Montreal and Quebec itself and just go to London. And that will be a terrible blow for the country for Quebec. And why important for the revolt parties because Quebec is their main strongholds? And it's also where Justin Trudeau comes from his the MP of Patino, which is district within Montreal. What you think his prospects are of putting this behind him and actually surviving it it's mitigated because for example, next week to parliament is not seating. So the conservatives and your position, Geno? We not be able to grill the prime minister, and then you'll have the federal budget the following week. And so that might be the main news so maybe managed to put this behind him. But you have to know that the investigation from the Justice committee has not done, and there's also another investigation it's way, but the second one could take month until you have an answer to it. It could happen that this will go behind him. But that's pretty unlikely looking out what Canadians once, and that's the main thing what Canadian want is the truth on this

The scandal that could bring down Justin Trudeau

"Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has long been pinup for liberals around the world. But now he's facing Kohl's within his own country to resign Justin Trudeau simply cannot continue to govern this country. Now that Canadians know what he has done critics of Mr. Trudeau like physician leader, Andrew Scheer, all you. He's guilty of political meddling to protect big construction company named SNC level from prosecution today, a former aide is expected to testify against Mr. Trudeau in the parliamentary Justice committee. Absolutely. The biggest crisis that the Trudeau government has faced model Andro and is our Canada correspondent based out of were. And the timing is terrible. Because there's an election coming up in October. And it doesn't give the government very much time to turn the page on this model, and there are lots of moving parts in the scandal. But how did? It start SNC lab. Liz of big construction company that has operations all over the world, and it has been charged with paying bribes to ficials in the Libyan government in order to get construction contracts there, and how did that turn into a control Vesey? That's pulled in the prime minister will the first indication that Canadians got that something was a little bit was when Justin Trudeau demoted his. Minister of Justice in Terni general in January. There was no good explanation. Given for this demotion and people thought it was a little bit odd. And then journalists started sniffing around, and there was a fairly explosive news report that came out at the beginning of February that explained the demotion for everyone. Now, this news report just quoted anonymously sources that basically what it said was that Mr. Trump and his officials had put inappropriate pressure on the attorney general to change her decision in the case of SNC level. Now SNC lands of big international construction company. It's also politically important in Quebec. Which is always something that you have to keep an eye on in Canadian politics of why is this particularly important in Quebec. And so important to just introduced in the first place SNC level employs about. Nine thousand people in Quebec. And it is also a very politically plugged in company. But Trudeau has said from the beginning that he's very worried that if this case goes to trial that the company might go under or it might be purchased by another company and those jobs would be lost in the headquarters move out of Canada. But he isn't suggesting that they'd be let off completely what he wanted. The attorney general to do was to give them a deferred prosecution agreement, and these are things that you can get them in the UK and in the US as well where the company admits responsibility for wrongdoing cooperates with the government and usually pays a hefty fine. And how'd you Canadian people feel about this on the ho- the problem with leading level now off with a fine has too many people see that as sort of them escaping Justice? And so the majority of Canadian. Actually want SNC lab land to go to a criminal trial because they perceived the alternative as letting them off the hook too easily. Now as matters stand right now, Mr. Tudo has not overturned the original decision of his former attorney general. So that trial is still to go ahead. How plausible Mr. Trudeau's denials here behavior was not in any way. Improper Mr. Trudeau hasn't helped his case at all. Because his denials of all been a little bit sort of spotty at no time did I or my office direct the current or previous attorney general to make any particular decision in this matter. He hasn't really laid out the full maintainable of what happened. And who did what when so what he's saying? Is that? Yes, he raised this issue with. Jodi Wilson Rabaul, the attorney general and it was mostly because he wanted to make sure that the company SNC lab land didn't go under. He was worried about jobs, but then in we later found out from her testimony that in fact politics was raised in some of these sessions, then to my surprise, the clerk stated or started to make the case for the need for a DPA. He said, quote, there's a board meeting on Thursday September the twentieth with stockholders, and quote, quote, again, they will likely be moving into London if this happens, and there's an election in Quebec soon and quote. At that point. The prime minister jumped in stressing that there is an election in Quebec. And that quote, I am an MP in Quebec the member for Pepino, and quote, and that puts an entirely different shade on things and Mr. Trudeau has not come up with a full accounting of that he has lost some cabinet members. Coast him and very aid joined to limit the damage. How's that going down with the former attorney general resigned, the was damaging for the liberal government? She was seen as very competent minister to begin with. She was also indigenous which is important to this particular government, which has elevated the indigenous issues part of its its brand. So that resignation was definitely damaging. But what has made this into a full blown crisis is the resignation just this week. Of James Philpot, another very senior, very confident woman in the Trudeau government, and she was very explicit in her resignation that she had lost confidence in the government. So that has proved to be much heavier blow you've interviewed him on a number of occasions. Do you think you'll handle this? As we go forward Trudeau often very good when he's backed into a corner, even before he was elected leader. And prime minister he stunned everyone by taking on a much bigger opponent in charity boxing match and manage to win. But I'm antipates that he will have something his sleeve here that he's going to try to present to the Canadian public and try to turn the page on this melon. Thanks very much for joining us. My pleasure.

"That much while having me, I think prime minister Trudeau and is commenting Kenda going through tremendous amount of pressure right now, as we speak and the credibility of the government is seriously being questioned, and I think if it is not handled properly government may actually go down the train, and there will be either new election or some other major development on the political scene in Canada. And this is happening at the time when there is a lot of uncertainty in the political life in Canada, and when Canada is much colty between China and the United States as far as the arrest and the proposed extradition of the gift bowl of quality group on what is concerned. I think the crucial point involved is whether the so called rule of law. Kevin is really independent is free from political interference all weather right now. The so called of law has always be used as an excuse and behind it and above it. There are political forces at play Incan. And in this case as allegedly revealed by province that will and this company, but in interfering immaturity exercise of power, right? The explaination from the side of the prime minister Trudeau is that they did this to protect local job. A prime minister Trudeau said told reporters that he staff advocates for jobs, well, respecting the law. He said that quote Canadians expect us to do those two things at the same time. And that's what we will. Always do do think. Canadians should accept this explanation and wore the government's actions worth saving jobs. No, I think promise to those explaination is not going to be accepted by the political establishment in Canada and the political activity in the country, and the political and and the Canadian bolts were not accept this explanation. Why because I think in Canada, it is true that the principle of rule of law is deeply entrenched and political forces should refrain from interfering in the independent exercise of the judiciary power in the country. And if there are any particular legitimate reasons, for example, to being volved in the judiciary matters, then you need to explain the situation very clear to the people and to the political establishment to stop with rather than doing that out the. The events have already taken place. So I think this is the crux of meta. And I think prime minister Trudeau most likely will very much tainted by just got the most likely will be brought down by the scandal as a very unfortunate saga political life in Canada. So more bowed the aspect of the story regarding Chinese telecom company while way, too, though has one said that Canada is a country enjoying judicial independence where this no political intervention in traditional affairs. Apparently, he referred to the case, and but the testimony of former Canadian Torney general at the house of Commons Justice committee last week contradicts to those claims more about this issue. What's your comment about the connections between the two aspects? Well in essence the arrest. Oh is a memento and the proposed to extradition by the memento from Canada to the United States, and the pose the prosecution of quality as a company and the memento as a person is in as the political persecution of my my went Joe. And while we company as the company, and I think the Canadian government and the relevant departments at the best accomplices in this political persecution of Chinese company and the Chinese national all this situation. And also if you look at this case involving the those interference in that you this story treatment of as an elaborate example, it reveals really very much tunnels tended display by the problem of Canada and his. Government that is wild. They have. No shame..

Jody Wilson-Raybould: The woman in the eye of the storm

"Wilson abled you've heard her name in the news for going on a month. Now, she's the woman at the center of the biggest political scandal to hit Canada, and a very long time the Trudeau government fighting itself in crisis mode over this SNC lavaman scandal. Bombshell testimony on Wednesday from Canada's former attorney general Jodie Wilson rebelled hers. The name prime minister Justin Trudeau will never ever forget the right. Honorable Jodie Wilson rebel testified. The would not bend to what she considered inappropriate pressure on the part of his office to interfere in the essence Alaba in case and the she was alternately penalized for it. The prime minister asked me to help out to find a solution here for us NC in response. I explained to him the law, but Jodie Wilson. Ray bold is also a person an indigenous lawyer with a whole life and distinguished career prior to these headlines liberal MP for Vancouver. Granville, feels it all that pressure back when she was still the first indigenous woman to become attorney general a star member of Trudeau's. Gender-balanced cabinet before being shuffled to better affairs as a result. She believes a standing her ground defending the rule of law Canadians of mostly lauded Wilson rebelled for quote, speaking her truth to power that doesn't mean she hasn't been subject to racism and sexism allegedly from even within her own party. Why versus all coming from? And what does this kind of treatment say about the liberal party or more broadly, Canadian politics? I'm Sarah, VO spelled infrastructure and heath Rawlings as we Mark International Women's Day this week. This is the big story. To walk us through Wilson rebelled is how she's been treated and the significance of how she's been treated. We welcome globe in mail columnist Elizabeth frenzy to the big story podcast. Hey, liz. Hi, sarah. Thanks for coming on happy to be. We'll tell me a little about about what you know about Wilson rebelled. She, you know, she's a big deal and Trudeau's gender-balanced cabinet no longer in cabinet, but what's hers sort of Baxter. Started get here to begin with, you know, about well, she was the first indigenous woman to be Justice minister and attorney general. And then of course, she was and she was a lawyer quite celebrated lawyer in British Columbia and indigenous woman as well. And she, of course, famously was demoted from her position of Justice minister and attorney general into veterans affairs Menton widely considered to be a demotion. Although, of course, veterans affairs is really important portfolio. But then we what happened after that is what sort of I think she was fairly well known to the public eye because of high profile legal and Justice issues on the federal landscape like cannabis legalization the right to die legislation and things like that. So she'd always been quite how high profile, but this particular scandal around SNC level has really put her profile in her just in the stratosphere. Yeah. I of the storm really I have the store. Yeah. So and I really last week felt like the day that she testified, you know, she's sitting for hours in front of the Justice committee in your watching. How did you feel? Yeah. It was quite extraordinary felt like, you know, one of those moments where the entire country stopped oddly, everyone, I knew had stopped and was sitting somewhere watching this. And it, of course, happened on the same day that Michael Cohen Trump's former lawyer was testifying. Before congress in the United States, and that was a much more combative and kind of fiery weird mail boisterous. Angry confrontation. And then there came Jodie Wilson Ray bold and sat down with no one sitting beside her and her, I guess possibly assistance behind her and in front of what is I'm sure the most packed Justice committee. There has ever been sure there are people lined up outside and she testified in the most extraordinary way. Like, just very calm. Very methodical. Very meticulous. Never sort of giving away any like sense that she felt you know, angry or anything like that. It was just very calm. She laid out what had happened to her. And I think for most people more persuasive for the kind of calmness with which she laid out her as she said her truth. Yeah. And let's talk about that, you know, really did land. Well with a lot of. Canadians. And and I think she speaks her truth was the headline Tronto star the next day. You know, what do you read into that positive response to to the way that she testified? Did she have to do that in order to be credible to be listened to to be heard? Well, we'd had a vacuum around this right for round this issue for the longest time, the prime minister would say a couple of little things. And then there was you know, people briefing off the record and things and you'd get those versions in the news. But there was never there was no kind of their their until she spoke. There was no central narrative until she spoke about what had happened during this. We'd had my Gornik the chief of the Clark with a Privy Council speaking, but apart from that sort of none of the central players had spoken. And so I think there was a real hunger to have some kind of sense of instead of innuendo and slur. And background noise. Actually have somebody lay down what they saw to be the kind of accurate series of events, according to their point of view, which is what she did. Yeah. And she had the receipts. Right. She had only had the receipts. She she spills the tea. Yeah. She. Did she had it seemed to me very loyally? You know, she laid things out methodically. She had clearly kept contemporaneous notes. She had emails and texts and things like that. And never in the almost I think it was four hours of testimony. Did she divert from this narrative of this is what happened to me? And this is how I felt and she didn't use hyperbolic language or anything. But it was all the more powerful for that. For her just using little tiny. Phrases like veiled threats, and then she made, you know, a reference to Richard Nixon and the Saturday night massacre. You know in which he he needed to get people to do his dastardly bidding and went down the list in the department of Justice until he found somebody who would. So these things I think were because she spoke so carefully, and so directly it had a real impact, and there was no hyperbole. There was no kind of you out when he was testifying was much more passionate and emboldened and kind of forceful threats to democracy, and you know, somebody's gonna get killed. There's crazy culture of or or or aura of of partisanship in violence in the in the air, which I think is probably you know, I think is there is there's some act today. Yeah. For sure, but her testimony was so different. And so much more powerful for it. Yes. That's her position in all this scandal and controversy, but do you what do you sort of see when you put a gender lens on that? As a woman having to be believed. Incredible. I think we've seen lots of obviously way different context. But, you know, lots of testimonies from women who are needing to be have their side of the version of things hurt. And and a lot of ways there. It doesn't get the weight that I think you have Christine Blasi. Maybe. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I'm Christine Blasi Ford who still has not been able as far as I know to move back into her house and is still suffering death threats. Now has to have, you know, people around her bodyguards and things and so just to be clear. She was the the woman who said that as a teen she was sexually assaulted by Brad Cavanaugh who is now on the supreme court bench in the United States. Yes. Exactly. So we do kind of I think for better or worse. Partly because there are so few women in these very high positions of power. So when they do come forward to testify for better or worse. They do kind of, you know, the intensity of our gazes upon them because they are few and far between, and I don't I don't think you can separate that four Jodie Wilson Rabaul because I don't know if you know this, but Justin Trudeau as a feminist is. Yeah, it's true. I know I thought I should be the first one and. And he had a gender-balanced cabinet twenty. She was a major star player. Exactly. She was a a major star player. So I think what's happened is as I wrote in a column at the time live by the effort die by the effort. So he has made such he's really tied so much of his credibility. I think to this idea of gender Justice gender equity, the pushing of progressive feminist causes and a half to say in many ways, the government has been good. You know, there have been there has been terrific legislation in certain ways. But if you're going to present yourself as being pure than pure and more pristine than pristine than anytime, you are seeing to step outside that boundary anytime, you are perhaps seeing to be treating a senior female member of your cabinet in a way that is not necessarily progressive or perhaps there are other members of your caucus who are briefing against her or are saying things about her. That frankly, smack of sexism even off the record, then that's gonna look really bad. And I think that's what we saw here. And also there have been reports of some really racist and sexist language used against her, you know, within the government, but also out in the world. What have you sort of seen or heard about that? Oh, yeah. There's been all kinds of things, and we had a couple of liberal male liberal backbenchers say things about her along the lines of you know, she couldn't handle the stress or she wasn't a team player. One said that her father was perhaps pulling her strings, which is just I know. Yeah. Later apologized for it. And he apologized in the house, which is good. But in a way, I actually find hearing those things oddly refreshing, because I know so many people actually think them and to congratulate about loud, like at least we get to see people truly feel and then it becomes obvious. And then we can. Deal with it. Right. And so now, you know, nobody I was actually quite surprised that we did hear things along those lines. What we've heard also an again, this is more off the record stuff is you know, that she was difficult. Not a team player. Difficult can be code, right? Absolutely. No. There's no doubt about it whatsoever. There's all these coded words that are used for women, especially women in leadership roles, especially women in politics and unlikable is big one or likable be here with Hillary Clinton all the time. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Or Elizabeth Warren, or you know, any of the American politicians likeable team player, you know, cooperative. And it's it's interesting because traditionally what women are thought to bring to leadership tables, whether it's the boardroom or political leadership tables is the so-called soft skills. Right. Soft power. So that is empathy you know, team being a team player being able to work well with others collaboration. So I think any woman who then diverts from that script no matter in how small away is branded as perhaps even more harshly than than her male colleagues would be and he kept calling her Jodi in the early days. Right. It was like Jodi, you know, it's going to do this or that. And I'm like, she's a minister, right, right? Able to you. Yeah. Right honourable. Yeah. Exactly. I'm, but, but you know, what do you see is really hypocritical on his part, then you know, you really outlined. Very well. You know, the the double standards, I think for a lot of women who are in powerful roles like Why's it as an especially bad problem for Justin Trudeau because he hasn't. This is bidden his entire brand. I so I interviewed last week I interviewed this famous American journalists in Toronto named Rebecca traced to American feminist journalist, and she was kind of golf smacked by the whole scandal. Because she said when you look from outside our country, what they know about Justin Trudeau is that he's a great feminist, and the you know that he pushes women's equality, and that has been the brand that they built from you know, from when the when he was in
