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

LemMe Tell Ya I let me tell you. I tried for about fifteen minutes. I tried filtering. I tried ED noise reduction. I tried everything I could to make audible enough for the show and it's just not there. I mean they have the subtitles in the video clip guys basically just talking talking about trump being laid or it just really but but it did result in Trudeau making some phony Baloney story about it to try to cover his ask and that brought in one of the Canadian competitors to Trudeau this.

Yeah this year yeah and here. He is on Trudeau. I'm looking for a Sikh Clip Jag. Meat Okay. I could have known what I've said often about. Mr Trudeau is that he certainly says some things in public and says things very differently any private for example. He talks about the importance of indigenous relationships as being a priority in public but in private in a closed this door fundraiser with wealthy donors he he mocked and made fun of activists that were complaining about a legitimate concern about clean drinking water and Mercury Hugh poisoning in grassy narrows very different approach in public and very different in approach in private. And that's something that I've said before there's many reasons to criticize Mr trump but criticizing about making someone late or cocktail parties. Not One and these two Mr Trudeau's in public and private is something that we've seen. I've I've seen many times and I think Canadians are starting to see more.

Resignation scandal mars Trudeau's shiny image
"Trudeau swept into power in Canada in two thousand fifteen championing equality, openness and social Justice, but the resignation of his attorney general who will let's shoot face pressure to go easy on one of the country's biggest companies in corruption case has dented this image. Nikki Zena discusses the case in what it means for Trudeau in the liberal party with Ravi, Matt and Amy Williams. Amy, tell us first about the company involved. SNC lavaman will the company has a few things, but bowling engineering company that works mainly with mining and energy services. So in this case, it's been accused of bribing Libyan officials around the time when he was in power. This is not as I brush with bribery, allegations the World Bank, actually, blacklisted its main subsidiary from bidding on projects and its own global corruption policy and that happened in two thousand thirteen over a project. It was worth on in Bangladesh. The key thing about the company in the stories that employs around nine thousand people across Canada. Most of those are in Quebec, which is the home for just intruders constituency in Montreal what was the attorney general's involvement, which Wilson rape, bogey Torney general. She was in a position to come up with the prosecution agreement with the company that would basically have seen him set. Lots of court avoiding huge find so base. Would have paid some money but being allowed to keep trading and avoid the court fees and big legal costs that would put them out of business. And who does she say put her under pressure to agree to a deferred prosecution agreement and why did she end up resigning? Well, she said that it was several people in Mr. Trudeau's government specifically in his office, and including Mr. shooter himself and Khushi his top advisor, Gerald books. Her resignation is a bit murky and a little unclear but what we do know is that shortly before she resigned, Mr. Trudeau effectively demoted her in a cabinet reshuffle and this caused quite a bit of upset. She initially refused to take the first portfolio that she was offered. So she was attorney general and Justice minister, Mr. to try to move her to indigenous services, which she climbed she eventually ended up at veterans affairs, and she shortly afterwards resigned. What has Mr. Trudeau said about this mister Suto and also his adviser Mr. buck who gave testimony to the Canadian House of Commons. Have both said that they did not try to force miss was able to make any kind of decision. They just asked her the independent advice and get a second opinion on her decision because they thought it was really important case lots of jobs are at stake. Mr. Trudeau has insisted he spoke to journalists day after Mr Bush gave testimony he insisted. That he was only ever trying to defend jobs as all he's ever tried to do and nine thousand jobs is really quite a lot of jobs to be lost. I know you've been wanting to hear from me directly on the SNC Lebanon issue. I've taken time to review the testimony to reflect on what has happened over the past months and on what our next steps should be. What has become clear through the various testimonies is that over the past months? There was an erosion of trust between my office. And specifically my former principal secretary and the former minister of Justice and attorney general I was not aware of that erosion of trust does prime minister and leader of the federal ministry. I should've been in regards to standing up for jobs and defending the integrity of our rule of law. I continue to say that there was no inappropriate pressure. Bearing in mind that elections are coming up in October. How has this all gone down with Canadian voters rudely, they don't like it? This Troodos popularity has taken a hit. And it's not looking all that good for him the elections approach. However in Quebec the province. Montreal is people are less bothered about this. And actually his popularity's is kinda held up in Quebec, they're a little more sympathetic to the view that jobs were at stake around three thousand of those nine thousand jobs in Quebec. And they are less unhappy with MRs Troodos alleged actions. Ravi you've written that Mr. Trudeau is partly to blame for setting impossibly high standards. Can you explain what you mean? Yeah. I mean, there's a couple of things there. I think first of all what needs to go back and understand why he won and how he won the election in two thousand thirteen to become prime minister, we need to remember that Mr. wasn't actually expected to win. He was in third place turning to other party leaders and play the Blinder in the campaign and suddenly became. Came prime minister with a massive majority. And I think the first mistake they made was to misunderstand their mandate. They thought the massive majority meant they had licensed to invoke a massive program of change in fact, because they went by surprise by good fortune in that voters had got fed up with the incumbent Stephen Harper. They didn't realize there was a bit of a delicate balance to achieve their the second bit was they one of the back of a progressive agenda. Mr. Trudeau had a great brand he sold himself as a modern politician whose advertising a more kind a more gentle immoral open way of governing and dean with politics rather than the very fractious way. Things are done in many other places including at times in Canada. But by holdings of that standard. He also needs to meet that Senator in government now for the first few years that kind of words he did very well on certain policy issues. He accepted twenty five thousand Syrian refugees into the country from the war, which is a very popular mid both within Canada and in June. Nationally, but further into government, he made some missteps party. I would argue because of the hubris I came with that stunning election victory. First of all he started to do things that flew in the face of that cleaner than clean impression. He was giving for example in twenty-six fell foul of ethics rules for taking a private family holiday on the private island of the con, the billionaire religious leaders not only did that contravene the rules in place for politicians. But it just looked really bad. It looked very elitist. When he told the world that he was anything. But similarly in terms of the people who put in place around him, Amy mentioned Gerald butts who's as close as adviser, but Mr. bus was also his best friend. They know each other for thirty years they met at McGill University and invariably when you put your best friend in your office as your closest advisor, even the smartest person in the world will find it impossible to separate the personal and the professional. And that was certainly impression given and that chumminess once again went to undercut pretty severely, the progressive agenda that open of politics that he advertised when he campaigned for office, and indeed nearly years of his tenure so you've already touched on this a bit, but looking towards the next election, and how he starting to campaign now, what would you say are has notable achievements, and what are his failures while a couple of things. I mean, he has achieved things I talked with the Syrian refugee policy. He's also legalized cannabis which was a big campaign promise of his and he certainly tried to create a different impression of how poses can be done. But if you count all the things where he failed in the city meet the targets, he said, they include reforming the electoral system. He hasn't done that finding a way of building a pipeline from the oil signs of northern Alberta to the Pacific coast of BC. He has done that reconciling relations with indigenous populations. He hasn't achieved that so they're a litany of these things where he set. Very vicious goals, and he just didn't achieved. And so I think unfortunately, while he has made some serious achievements. Such as renegotiate NAFTA agreement with Donald Trump. They're also number failures that his opponents will hold against them. And how well placed is Canada's opposition to capitalize on Mr. Trudeau's weaknesses. Well, go into the election. I think that's one of actually his advantages. So eighty mentioned that Mr. Trudeau's poll numbers of taking a hit. And yet the liberal government the liberal party, which he leads still is more or less neck and neck with the obstinate conservatives, and I think one of the things that he has to best advantage is the fact that his opposition rivals are relatively new leaders in their own, right? And they suffer from their own credibility issues. So Andrea sherr of the conservatives and the leftist NDP's Jagmeet Singh are both quite noon to the job. And they too are having some issues around trying to prove to the public that there are credible alternative. So in terms of how well the opposition can capitalize on it. They're doing the best to make sure this as in the news there. Making sure that it's very hard for the government to talk about anything else. Every press conference at happens invariably, the tension terms to this topic around the essence see Lebanon scandal and the resignation so it's very hard to change the Genda. However, the weakness of the opposition does give Mr. to who remains a very charming character and someone who can certainly connect with people gives them a plausible chance going into the election. So Amy what happens with the SNC level in case after this? We could you will rape with decision was not offer the prosecution agreement which means they have to go to trial. So there's already a hearing underway and a criminal trial will probably happen within an ear. Yes. Data what AB said, although wasn't able to make sure this is going to trawl from what it seems the political stray hasn't ended a lot of pressure on the top civil servant in Canada. Who's also been drawn into the affair and his role there further questions the opposition is raising about whether they'll process of how cases like this handled is inappropriate. And whether in fact. An independent third party should Judy Kate over the process. So the politics is obviously very strong and carrying on. And the opposite is gonna do their best to make sure this stays in the headlines. And of course, our media colleagues are watching very closely in Canada too.
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.
