You can sometimes over correct in anyone capacity anyone. A situation. It's about learning from that in moving forward. So. That's my leadership style I think is is.

In a place where they want to be and that's the first thing but having the rat bums in right seats within your organization sometimes you have to pay for that. As you were saying earlier, you've got to invest in good people. So. Yeah, it's a it's a wonderful role to be when you earn a privileged leadership position but I'm always learning. That's fantastic and I think you could add. To your list of attributes think in terms of your leadership. Qualities I think. So you know you were very inspiring yourself.

Waking From The Dream With Dr. Kirsten Van Heerden
"So the question that everyone that Oh come on it? When you're younger has an athlete will bigger than the gold you went to achieve? It's an interesting question that when I was young athlete and often talk to people about this and and say I was not one of those athletes. That's when I was young dreamed of being Olympic athletes. I think I just if I'm honest. I love swimming and I was super competitive additive so I swam. 'cause everybody just loved it and I was obviously That even from Gina level at school and I just love love being in the water and I'm super competitive in whatever ideas that kind of suited me and they just found my way within that then of course as a status train hard it was probably in just entered. High School is around twelve twelve and I decided to stop doing the sports. I used to do a little bit odd gymnastics until I grew six toll. I can't gymnastics to told to do it. I did a bit of basketball okay of Naples but of high jump but you as a win. It's too high school. I really try something. That was the thing that I wanted to do and really became focused on that from Yasser around twelve eighteen years of age End of mates genius African teens and progressed to some senior African team so my career kind of just suppose it flowed from nats and it was really just something to say. I love to end enjoyed competing in flow going on that. Have you find flamingos by one day being fined the pool one day. Anything I love this. I'm actually a mismatch and so when I was younger the young kid. The doctors That she takes me swimming because is being is pretty good for asthma. Actually a lot of Zuma's that I know have have esmer's well and so. She decided to take some swimming lessons. I have all the brother and he was going at the same time so I think it was convenient for her to take together. So y'all got into. It's probably from the age of roundabouts three. I was in the pool and really as I got in. I just remember accidentally loving being in the water and something that kind of came naturally as foes and we would spend some. I remember my my brother and I in the neighborhood children in our swimming pool and pain gains. And you're running around crazy. Certain has always been around horror and then we would have cepal days we would have family holidays at the beach McCain from the ages of love being in the water at the beach each say something to say from the Seemed seven affinity full. Lucky could I had asthma too. And my day run more doc icon. Brenham come out of it and now they okay. We'll get they're gonNA run so when you started kind of seeing you Kinda went all in on the Fleming economist at age twelve and Says at what point did you say I wanNA take this to be the next web for me. You almost around about that age. Say as I got into grade eight at high school in the the middle of great eight assay ahead some decisions to make around various different sports. I thought to myself at that point. You know what I couldn't imagine myself is carrying on gymnastics. I'd go into the provincial cuts for its net end soon with Nipple Hijab but I thought to myself you know when I finished school I can really see myself carrying on swimming. That was the one thing that I really love. And so has steadily from say probably that middle of great age. It was a conscious decision that this was something that I really wanted to do. And then by the end of Grade Eight said made my fist acid African junior team. And so I suppose I kind of got rewards straight away. Wait for that decision which was great because okay this on the right path yet and every year after that I was fortunate enough to make a team to travel whether whether it was to Europe or the states or something like that and compete and so getting those kinds of awards for your hard work really motivated me to keep going and keep the suing it. Sometimes when we these like at a young age we know it can not either you know give of competent world or you know kind of backfire on though so for you. What kind of cup? Humble you know an offensive you know you achieve great thing but always More work be done better. Yeah I I think there were a number of Vista. I think my family kicked my feet on the ground and I'm always incredibly grateful for that. You know when I was at home. It was very much you simply Chris. We don't care what swimming team rewritten you. Part of the family things that you need to do here so they say my family rarely did kind of keep my feet on the ground and as much as I say that I made some African something teams which I did. I was never travelling overseas. And being the best in the world from straightaway and even in South Africa. You know there was some competitive. The report. me so I think you had to in maybe at school level. It's a little bit easier into into the higher levels and other that had quite hard to beat the goal that was in front of me. I'm going to make the teams and you go the season. You realize WHOA. I'm at be good inside Africa but I'm not that great internationally and because of my competitive nature I think that was just kicked me pushing me motivation to push further rally and yes. The safe was both of those things in my family instrumental. Tremain Tal in just helping. Keep me grounded said lots of friends I think as well that were nonstop is unknown athletes. And she's saying to someone earlier today in the best possible way. I didn't really care about you. Know as it was really fantastic that you could go and just hang on him and not have to be kissed in the summit you could it just via self. I love the Laflin because he kriton yourself having a lot of time. You know like we don't really like her last call that we have to call them in our did any of being you know Kobe. The athletes Stand your kristen. Yeah exactly it has sometimes. Yeah people don't even know your name that would just use is a summer where you're the one at school is being called from the stage for example in assemblies and that you get whatever crisis that might be and as much as it was great right your identity entity can become wracked at the net. And I think all athletes union was the soft place to land this alternative world because the world of elite sport can actually be pretty cautioned. Tough and you need this other world that you can just be a selfish and self worth as well you know for me. And I'm sure we'll get onto this. You know not drawing that Ernie from my formats and the swimming pool being able to see self worth a posh from that and you hang out with friends that disliked you for you because you were doing one on the swimming pool thousand South I learned the hard way got hurt my tomato and along the athlete and I saw how the world kind of shifted for me a little bit.

A brawl for the climate change vote
"A year ago when people wondered which fringe party could matter in the twenty nineteen election most analysts pointed to maxim burn, as newly created People's Party of Canada. Would that party grow? Could it eat into the conservative base, when it split the vote on the right a year later that seems a little silly? The People's Party is still at just a couple of points in the polls. But it turns out there is a little party that could decide the election, it was on the other side of the spectrum sitting right where it's been all along waiting for the rest of the country to reach these same conclusion about the key issue. They're most known for that they'd reached years ago, climate change is not now I repeat that not an environmental issue. It's a massive security threat, and it needs to be dealt with by government at all levels, a security threat that requires taking bold action, one of the clear things that we've seen from, from this, despite election. I want to congratulate all the candidates who who ran in. It is a Canadians are really preoccupied about climate change are Canadians really ready to meet the green party, where they've been living all these years sure every poll shows support for the party is rising, but luck rising is relative. When you were as low in the polls as the greens typically are in federal elections. So even if that general support is there will it translate to results. Will it translate to writings, one can it make a difference on election night? And if it does at whose expense, welcome to the fight for the climate vote. I'm Jordan heath Rollings. And this is the big story, Cormac mcsweeney is the parliament hill. Reporter for city news. And for the Rogers radio brands and also for us iconic. Hey, how's it going? It is going really well. I'm hoping that you can kind of parse this brewing fight on the left side of the political spectrum right now for us. It's a remarkable dynamic right now months to go before the election were seeing votes evaporate for both the liberals and the New Democrats, and they're all shifting green, you know, the old saying it ain't easy being green. Well, it's pretty easy right now, because things are looking up for Elizabeth may and her party. We've got the greens polling at probably the best that they've ever pulled that federally some polls have them up at around twelve percent, which is huge. Because back in two thousand fifteen the greens were, I think less than five percent of the vote. So they've more than doubled their voting base in the lead up to the. Twenty nine thousand nine fall election. So they're firing on all cylinders right now. And the liberals and New Democrats are wondering what the heck to do to make sure that they keep those voters on their sides. But also, not only that steel voters from the other progressive parties to try and make sure that they can secure some sort of victory, and try and stop the conservatives who are also firing on all cylinders right now. So it's a it's a heck of a fight on the left as the conservatives continue to gain momentum. And it's going to be interesting to see what happens is there. Anything concrete, you can point to we've talked a couple times on this podcast, most notably. When they had a chance in P of the sort of, general affection. The greens are seeing in the rise in the polls. But is there anything concrete, you can point to that might be driving people moving to consider the greens? Some of this is based on stats and polls. And others is based sort of anecdotally. But I think what we're seeing is a few. Different things here that is just creating this perfect scenario for the green party. One is the fact that climate change and the concerns around climate change on a broader national scale or finally, catching up with what the green party has been preaching for years and years. And that is, we need to take action to protect the environment and protect our earth, and Canadians are now really catching up to the point where this is becoming one of the biggest issues seen nationally among the voting public that action needs to be taken and serious action at that. That's one thing one aspect of it. Is that Canadians are catching up with the concerns for the greens? But the other aspect all of this is that we're seeing kind of a collapse and a failure, if you will from the liberals and NDP to take a look at the new democrat side of things. Jug, meet sing failing to gain traction is since taking over the party leadership. We've seen the end EP. Of fallen support. He's struggled to get the attention that he was hoping to get. There was a lot of excitement around. Jug. Meet sing in the hope that he would be this charismatic dynamic young leader that would really help vault the end EP back to the level that we saw with Jack Layton that has not happened at all. And he's, he's struggled in a number of interviews as well where he's been accused of being too vague on certain issues or possibly flip flopping on others. And so while they knew Democrats are struggling the liberals have had problems of their own Justin Trudeau back in two thousand fifteen was able to unite the progressives behind him. He stole from green supporters and end EP supporters, and some conservatives and, and really built up this, this perfect sort of momentum around him during that long campaign in two thousand fifteen that helped vault him from third him in the liberals from third party status to government, and it never happened before. But since taking office, a lot of the promises and a lot of the things that he was. Elected on have created problems for him, just looking at things like the promise to change the way, we elect, our MP's read. There was a lot of hope that, that, that would actually happen in never ended up happening. The liberals have had other scan whole such as SNC laflin and the, the more recent problems of the Mark Norman case, those are eating away at liberal support as well. And on top of all of that. I mean with environment with the environment being a big issue in the eyes of Canadians, some are pointing out, what people, some people see as a contradiction of the liberal position while they say, we need to take serious action on climate change. We'd need this carbon tax. Here's the government buying the trans mountain pipeline to make sure that the oil from our oil sands, is being sent off to other markets something a lot of people who are very passionate about the environment disagree with. And so you have a lot of troubles for the liberals and the MVP right now. And a lot of progressives who don't know where to turn because they're dissatisfied with what they see from what is traditionally been the two left or left of center parties. And now they're looking to the greens as a possible, viable option. And so you have this perfect scenario, as I said, where climate change is becoming more of an important issue in the eyes of Canadians, the traditional parties that Canadians have known for decades are not satisfying, a lot of these younger voters. And they're deciding you know what? Maybe whether it's a protest vote or legitimately giving the greens shot. They're definitely looking at the greens with a lot of serious consideration. When they look at them, especially for those people for whom climate is a major issue. What do they see exactly what gives the green party? The credibility on climate to. They have a specific plan. They do. And actually, it was just recently released. They entitled it mission possible. And I think the, the whole thing is that the greens for years have been branding themselves as. As the environmental party now that can work against them in certain ways, where they're sort of seen as only a one issue party. And it's, it's a it's an image that they've been trying to shake for some time now under Lisbeth may. But nonetheless, the greens are seen as a very credible party when it comes to the environment, you ask any Canadian like, who do you think is the party that would do the most to try and save the environment? I think the green party would likely be the number one answer. So they did release this ambitious plan for the environment. At a time when a lot of Canadians are paying attention to these issues. They are pitching to go well beyond what the liberal government has said, we'll be its targets in terms of dealing with greenhouse gas emissions. I mean, well, beyond the fact, they want to double the reduction target. So the liberals say they want to try and hit thirty percent to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from two thousand five levels by thirty percent by twenty thirty while the green party says we can do better than that. We'll do sixty percent of reduction from the two thousand and five levels of by twenty thirty. That's a dramatic shift and they're not just looking at, you know, pricing pollution as a way to deal with this. They're talking about some major projects such as retrofitting every building across the nation and eliminating our reliance on foreign oil making sure that from province to province. Renewable energy can be more easily shared something that even the conservatives are kind of pitching with their energy corridor option right now. So the, the greens have released released a very ambitious plan. And I guess now that it's out there. It hasn't had a lot of time to really set in for Canadians, whether they're paying attention to promises like this so far out from the election or not as another thing. But we'll see how they respond with these very ambitious targets that Elizabeth may and her green party have put forward two weeks ago. The greens actually one abaya election which. Which feels like something that doesn't happen. How did that come about? And what happened in auto afterwards? Because what I'm fascinated by, in this story is the number of people who have kind of seen a rise in the polls from the greens, but to your point written them off, as a one issue party, or while they can't climb that high can they and did this send a message are their people in auto Wah, talking about them? Now there are definitely people talking about the greens. And I think this by-election victory although I will say that by-election results are usually not reflective of where things go in general election ratified, it is a way and it's seen by some as a way to send a message to the government of the day. Prime minister Justin Trudeau said the day after the by election that he gets it. There's a message from Canadians they care about climate change, and they want to see action on climate change. And that's what his government is focused on through its carbon pricing system and. So I think there was a message sent to both the liberals and the end EP that they need to need to up their game. When it comes to environmental issues, the end EP as well as changed its tactics since that by-election result. And so, I think a lot of politicians while they were seeing some of this growth in this so-called green wave sweep across the nation and a lot of buzz and a lot of talk about the greens, it wasn't until we saw on federal scale of victory such as having the second elected, and p from the green party arrive at the house of Commons before they started to really, you know, publicly address this, because I'm sure that behind the scenes, both those parties were looking at the greens as, as a potential threat and trying to figure out what to do. But again, this is all come recently for the greens, where they've seen this rise over the last several months as we. Part of it to do with the focus on climate change part of it to do with distaste of the otherwise traditional parties that Canadians have been voting for for a while. But I think there was a message sent and, and people are adapting how do people see Elizabeth may who may be until recently, not many of them ever thought much about there's a bit of a joke around Ottawa that Elizabeth may is everyone's political aunt? You know, she's a likeable person, she has something to say about almost everything, but up until recently, I don't think a lot of people actually were considering her as, as potential prime ministerial material, and I think, more people are sort of giving her a bit of a shot. She's not distasteful in any way, you know, you haven't seen Elizabeth may be the subject of a lot of controversy. She has she's had her own problems within her own party. There has been pushed back, there have been allegations that she's been a bully as a leader. Things like that. But whether Canadians have been paying a lot of attention to that something else, she is seen as somebody who has integrity, who has a passion for what she does. And I would be hard pressed to find another MP in the house of Commons who spends as much time in the house of Commons, debating on almost every different subject, then Elizabeth may, so she's very committed to her work. There is broad support for Elizabeth may.

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.

"Learn more at indeed dot com slash higher. And by the listeners of cake. Now as we go back to the program the time, it's five thirty four. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Rachel Martin. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is taking an unexpected political beating yesterday a second member of his cabinet, abruptly resigned. The first to quit was Trudeau's. Former attorney general she is now accusing him of meddling in a criminal prosecution north country. Public radio's Brian man is in Ottawa Canada's capital where he is watching all of this unfold and reporting on it. Hi, brian. I Rachel so up until now Justin Trudeau had a pretty sterling reputation. Right. And then the scandal happened so quickly. What happened? Exactly. Yeah. This is really been moving quick last month, the Toronto Globe and mail newspaper. Suddenly ran a big expose claiming Trudeau intervened in a high level criminal probe this involved. A Canadian company called SNC laflin. That's a big company that's been accused of bribery and corruption according to the newspaper's story Trudeau secretly. Pressured Canada's then attorney general the woman named Jodie Wilson rebelled trying to convince her to go easy on laflin. And and then last week in kind of a bombshell moment. Wilson rebelled herself went public. She told parliament the newspaper account was true here. She is. I experienced a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion in my role as the attorney general of Canada, and I should say that Wilson rebelled has this really sterling reputation here. So this has been painful for Trudeau. She pointed the finger right at him saying he was the guy directing all this secret pressure as a way to shore up his party's political support. I mean, why can you explain that? I mean does Trudeau have a relationship with this company laflin operates from their headquarters in Montreal which is Justin Trudeau. A core base of support. And he has argued that this is an important company for jobs in Canada. She says that was the argument he was making behind the scenes go soft on this company or else the leave Canada. So now a second member of his cabinet has resigned and that just happened yesterday. Yeah. This is ask elating Canada's treasury board. President woman named Jane Philpot wrote a public letter arguing Trudeau had broken what she called a fundamental doctrine of the rule of law by pressuring his attorney general, and I should say that Andrew Scheer head of Canada's opposition conservative party. No fan of Trudeau has now called for the prime minister to resign. Sheer is calling for the Royal Canadian Mounted police to open a new criminal probe of Trudeau's inner circle. Wow. I mean is he speaking publicly about this in the calls for him to quit. He has been talking. His message is kind of flipped and flopped. It's been a tough couple of weeks for him. He argues. Basically that it was important and legitimate for him to advocate on behalf of this Canadian company in the jobs it provides, but he says he did it in ways that were proper here. He is speaking with reporters just yesterday, we will do that. How ever in a way that respects our institutions respects, the independence of judiciary Canadians? Expect us to do those things at the same time. And that's what we will always do. But now it really is a matter of whether or not he keeps his job. Right. I mean, national elections scheduled for the fall Kenny survive this. So the conservative party was already coming on strong. When all this began to blow up and now, I'm hearing from all sides, including from liberals here that Trudeau's ban brand is seriously damaged. There's this very influential Canadian news magazine here called mcclain's. They ran an article about the scandal this week titled Justin Trudeau imposter and another of Trudeau's former close visors is scheduled to testify before parliament tomorrow. So this is going to continue. It's a very dangerous moment for this politician. He seemed bulletproof just a few weeks ago prime man with north country public radio from Ottawa. Thanks, brian. Thank you. We still don't know when we're going to get the results of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, and critics of the president are feeling a growing sense of anticipation the longer this goes NPR's. Tim Mack has been talking to some elderly and ill people who are determined to hang on. So they can see how this unfolds as a World War Two veteran. Mitch Tendler had lived through many historical. Milestones of the twentieth century, the Korean war than Vietnam. Watergate and the impeachment of Bill Clinton, and he was watching the current presidency with something bordering on obsession. But on December twenty ninth at the age of ninety three he began feeling pain in his legs. And I got a call at eleven o'clock. My mom said well, dad's, not feeling well, we really can't stand. That's Tendler, son. Walter who lives in San Diego within a couple of hours. They called nine one one and got him into the ER because it wasn't getting any better Mitchell Tendler began to fade, doc. Gave him some painkillers, and then he had a final thought it just was quiet for a little while. And then just sits up in bed half way. And looks at me, and he goes, I'm not going to see the mall report, Emma. And there was really the last coherent thing that he said for nearly two years those who find fault with Trump have been hanging onto hope that Muller will produce evidence damaging to the president these expectations are so high that there are even those who in their last year's are hoping to survive just long enough to see the conclusion Richard Armstrong is ninety four years old currently in hospice care in planes, borough New Jersey, and he identifies with ten Lurs words. I know exactly how it feels. I feel the same way I've been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He's an independent who had voted for Republicans at times, including Richard Nixon in the seventies. But he's watching Muller with anticipation. I was hoping to to see the outcome of what I think it should be just as surprised and disappointed. If it isn't the story about the World War Two vets last words made its way by word of mouth to Benjamin witness a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. He tweeted it out without naming the family and was flooded by responses from Americans whose parents or grandparents had similar feelings about Muller when I saw that tweet about the Muller report and the old man on his deathbed. I thought oh my gosh. That's the kind of thing that my mother would say that's Christina MacKenzie who lives in Tucson, Arizona. Her mother passed away in January at the age of ninety four. I think she really wanted to see that Justice was done the voices in this story are hardly the only ones eager to see Muller as the person who will give them the answers. Many Democrats want Muller's investigation. To lead to follow on action. Here's Lee Muruga golf, the director of the mayor's institute for public opinion. When it comes to Democrats, the expectations are sky high. And they're looking for this to initiate her their action both of a political nature of a legal nature against Donald Trump. They'll be disappointed. I think either of those fall short this story show, just how much communities across America are eagerly awaiting news from the special counsel, and it's even more urgent for those Americans approaching the end of their lives to MAC NPR news, Washington. This is NPR news.
