The prime minister has been investigated by the Ethics Commissioner and another story, involving Trudeau and white hesitation over the headlines much visit with two weeks ago, that an armed forces member drove a truck onto the grounds of Rita where Trudeau with his family live. This guy's accused of threatening the Prime Minister and is somehow not a bigger story. Avalon of questions Rosen. Yes, let's do it. Here, we are this week with the prime minister finally for the first time addressing some of the controversy around a government decision to award a contract worth about twenty million dollars to the we charity group. The group was going to administer a program worth. Almost a billion dollars so that students young people in this country could volunteer throughout the pandemic and get honorariums. Get money to do that to help them pay for school pay for things that they needed in light of the fact that there weren't jobs and tried mobilize young people to do something important. There was already problem when this first came out. element of course because the prime minister himself very closely associated with his charity has done multiple events for the charity. His has a podcast that she doesn't get paid for with the charity, but then it was revealed that in fact, the prime minister's mother and brother had been paid by the organization different arm of the organization other two hundred fifty thousand dollars to speak at twenty eight events, and his brother, thirty two thousand dollars to speak at various events and the prime minister. And his government on they say the recommendation of the Public Service decided to give this contract contribution agreement to the charity in spite of the fact that. Justin Trudeau own family had benefited from their connection to this charity. So the prime minister apologized earlier this week. Maybe maybe we should play people a little bit of that just so they know what he sounded like when he finally had to take questions about it, I know there are many questions and problems with. This program is run out run about I. Know People have concerns about it. I got that. I made a mistake in not recusing myself immediately from the discussions given our family history. And I sincerely sorry, but not having done that. So. What did you make of that? Well okay. Where do we start? It's the kind of story e whether it's true or not. It sort of confirms all of the things that people worry about when they talk about Justin Trudeau and he's proximity sort of other powerful people in the country so there is this like elite nature to this controversy. You know whether it's actually what happened or not. The narrative is really easy to draw on the narrative. Is You have these powerful people who hang out with powerful people and give each other powerful programs and Hey, can you administer this billion dollar program for a meal? Give you twenty million dollars to do it. Of course not what happened, but the optics are not great. And the prime minister was actually defending why he didn't recuse himself just last week. I'm defending quite vigorously. The recommendation to use we to get opportunities out for young people was made by the public service. But as a cabinet, we ratify those decisions, and did you recuse yourself from that discussion and the decision at cabinet? No I didn't know. I not a long work on youth issues, both as before I got into politics, and since I've been in politics as a youth critic, getting young people involved in serving their country, recognizing desire to build a better Canada particularly due to through this time of crisis is something that I believe in deeply. That's a pretty firm statement. Saying you know what I really didn't need to recuse myself so then to have the apology come later. It really does weaken that apology in the nature that apology, so what what Trudeau is essentially done is kind of got himself into trouble where he needs to reveal what the public service actually told. Cabinet, if the public service indeed told cabinet that the we charities the only charity in the country that could possibly run this program. People will lead to see that memo or that email or recommendation because. There are so many questions swirling around the prime minister like only that public service recommendation will put it to rest. And, let's say that that's plausible that the we organization because of its size, and magnitude and scope really was the best suited to do that. The matching job between the thirty five thousand students who applied to do this and different charities and organizations that have been Feld in part because of this pandemics. Let's let's say that that's that's all plausible and true. And they're able to show. The the documents in front of a parliamentary committee that back that up. Even if that were the case. Does still bag a lot of questions about even with that recommendation, even the prime minister's words about the importance of young people in volunteerism. Why would you still think it was okay to sit at a cabinet table and way in on a decision when you knew at very least he knew. That his family members had done speaking for this organization before what he says is that he knew his mother and brother He knows they get paid for speaking events, but he did not know how much they had been paid for these we events in particular, but that he should have known. So! It is curious to me. That's the only way I can describe it. It's curious to me that he would still have sat at that table having that information in his brain somewhere and not thinking to himself. Oh, I! I don't think I can weigh in on this one. Yes, I mean, and it also speaks to a sort of maybe a larger problem, which is if you surround yourself by people in the in the prime, Minister's Office for supposed to be giving you advice on the exactly this kind of thing, and all of them presumably saw this program and said Yep. We sign off on this that flagging that as a problem. That speaks to a larger problem about you know. Maybe the minister surrounding himself with people. Who Don't see ethical. Potential ethical violations coming coming down the tracks like this is a pretty big one to miss. And I think it also speaks to this larger. Pattern with withdrew to this is the same thing that happened with the Aga Khan story the story about how? The Prime Minister, these family vacation of the. Private Island and that was sort of his first ethics investigation, and it comes down to you know are are your. Are Your advisers advising you properly if you just if this keeps happening? Yeah I mean I. think that if people in the office new I. Don't know who knew what was presumably not everybody didn't know the details of all this.

"So I know that this sort of charm offensive offensive for candidates to get UN Security Council seat this time around has been going on for a while preceding this trip right and so before we get to the trip that you're on. What have we been doing in the lead up to try and get the seat Well certainly a lot of the work has been done by. Marc Andre Blanchard Canada's ambassador to the UN the UN. He is on this trip and he is I mean this guy is a force of nature when you meet him he really he passionately loves the United Nations. As much. Does anyone you would ever want to meet. I hope all Canadians share my my passion for actually making sure that Canada Gets a seat on the Security Council. The UN is the only organization where all countries of the world comes together to actually tackle the worst challenges or the biggest challenges on this planet. It has certainly been very much involved in this campaign but one of the criticisms actually have how Justin Trudeau's government has been handling this entire file. Is that maybe. They weren't as engaged aged as they ought to have been up until now if they did want the seat. Of course there's been another really big issue in international affairs it's been Preoccupying Trudeau government coming up until now and that was Nafta Right Donald Trump. I mean frankly there've been a lot of issues on the international stage but a lot of candidates focused on securing this new Nafta this new agreement cream and some of the questions that have been raised by observers of the UN observers of this whole process are whether or not Canada truly has been as engaged as it could be or whether it's only shifting focus now and that's why we're really seeing this charm offensive kick into high gear. Okay and we're not the only country gunning for this right. I I know this because I've I've seen this video that Ireland made that has Bano in it which looks quite glossy our own firm might have been under the seventy three years ago. Bud Judge. It's still very much. Our Memory Orleans was a very poor country so I think we know the difference support make. That's right and not only not the only country and it so both Norway and Ireland are gunning for the same position as we are and there are two spots for Western Europe and others the category. But the sense is that both Ireland and Norway have been in this for a lot longer. The candidates perhaps coming to the table a little bit late Ireland has had An Ireland in Africa strategy that dates all the way back to twenty eleven. We actually got the chance to speak to the Prime Minister of Norway while we were in Copa because while Justin Trudeau conducting his charm offensive. Well the woman who apparently is known as iron earn Ernest older. The Prime Minister of Norway was there as well. Well they were at the very same events giving speeches one after the other and she agreed to talk to Canadian reporter. She was very polite chemists. A bigger economy eh country of course but on the other hand of course we have we are using more development aid we have used to support for international policies as talk to her so basically the prime minister of Norway throwing a little bit of Shade Airway although the Mo the most polite. It was almost Canadian. I would say she didn't say she was sorry afterwards. Not Fully Canadian.

"But I Next week Canada's parliament will reconvene for its first session. Since October's election Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party is still dylan control but in a minority government with smaller parties back in two thousand fifteen after winning a thumping parliamentary majority. Mr Trudeau declared that the new liberal era had begun Etienne spoken you want a government with a vision and in the gender for this country. That is it's positive and then vicious and hopeful for years later he sounded much the same and they voted in favor of a progressive agenda. And I'm strong action on climate change but October's election. His party won a million fewer votes and won no seats in the the western provinces of Alberta and Scotch on the victory speeches may have sounded similar but in his second term. It seems Mr Trudeau May Not Justin Trudeau had struggled to get reelected in part because He had attempted to try to change the world in fact at one point in his twitter bio read changing the world. A little bit every day. John I've isn't has reported on Mr does fortunes for the economist and I think that the electric really wanted them. Rather than to change changed the world. They wanted to an agenda. It was a little bit less planetary in scope. It was made worse by the fact that that his own blunders seemed to make him look like a hypocrite particularly Louis repeatedly winning black face when he was younger. This during the election is a bit of a bombshell. This is something that I deeply deeply. Eh regret darkening. Your face Regardless of the context or the circumstances is always unacceptable all because of the racist history of black face and then mainly the scandal which was reverberating in early. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred eighty demoted. It is justice minister after she refused to help a Quebec based construction company. Settle a criminal case and avoid prosecution over allegations of bribery and Libya in this has been a tough few weeks Canadians. Expect deserve to have faith in their institutions and the people who act within them well. First of all the justice does minister was a woman secondly she was an indigenous woman. And these issues that he'd been pontificating on he was particularly tarnished in the eyes of progressive voters. Well that's that's not to say though that he hadn't Taken on some big causes at home no I think that the liberal government was very proud of its record in the first four years. There were some pretty transformative changes the legalization of pot being one of them a very generous Gerald benefit allowance that lifted many people out of poverty. Eighty today nine out of ten families have more money in their pockets for things like new skates or hockey camp. The now helps more than six million children children and their families and it's helped lift hundreds of thousands of kids out of poverty since its inception in twenty sixteen. They managed to enhance the kind of pension implant They established a a national price on carbon and probably most crucially for the Canadian economy. The renegotiated a new free trade agreement with the trump administration that while it made some concessions that did not give away the farm. It was a pretty good result for Canada. Well what what's striking about. The the the election result though is how much the west of the country didn't seem to support him yes so it was locked out of the provinces of Alberta and to schedule No. MP's no representation. and Ah a rising feeling that some of these attempts to change the world particularly on climate change were being done at the expense of the resort producing regions of the country. So there's there's clearly in the second minded things that Trudeau needs to address. And he has started trying to address them. Address them in a in a change of tone or more concretely in policy. Well he he came back from Christmas vacation in Costa Rica. He had adopted a salt and pepper stubble which was designed. I think to make him look a little bit more. Seasoned I think that was symbolic and deliberately symbolic because I think this is a new low key approach. I think that they felt that while. They made some transformative changes in their last Monday. They didn't really get a lot of credit for that. As we saw in the election result there were far too many times editor was picture championing. Latest 'cause the latest woke because the critics would claim while not really talking about some of the things that he was actually doing. And what do you think of the big issues in his inbox. Now that he has this thin majority majority that the government gave it speech from the throne just before Christmas. The main th- broad themes will continue to be support for the middle class. The short themselves without an broad-based tax cut. That came before Christmas. The other major themes from the term we're going to continue. Reconciliation with indigenous communities continued attempts at ensuring the health and safety of Canadian through things like the introduction of a national drug benefit plan but the middle class has permeated just about everything they've done they've even appointed a minister for the middle class. No the term was ridiculed. And it's really a a junior finance minister role but clearly you. There's a feeling that if they can push the average Canadian increase their earnings lift people below the mode of poverty that this is a winning winning formula and they should be concentrating on this rather than on some of the more identity politics issues which dominated the first term. And so what. What will he be kind of working against? Does he tries to do this. And and keep all of these these various constituencies happy. The obvious one is. This is now a minority parliament. The liberal government needs the support of at least one other of the major parties the MVP the left of center and EP the Bloc Quebecois separatist party. I don't think we can expect an election anytime soon. The MVP urban strapped for cash. They're not likely to want to force an election. The bloc is quite happy as long as it's issues concerning quebecer addressed the other constraints obviously the the problems on the prairies with Scott. Actually no Berta have to be addressed. The one or the other thing that comes to mind is there are fiscal pressures. This is a government that has spent a lot of money in the first four years and his first platform. It said they would be back in balanced by two thousand nineteen in fact. This year's deficit is likely to be somewhere in the region of twenty six billion dollars Canadian as bill more. No the finance minister said when he met with reporters after he gave a fiscal update just before Christmas. He said nobody said it was going to be easy. And it's not so so all of this sort of Taken together how. How do you expect this? The second term to play apple with both with the the the fiscal and political constraints the The prime prime minister nowadays expected to be taken a little more seriously with his pepper beard. How how do you think this will come together all told I think it largely depends on who the conservatives choose news as their next leader Andrew share the former leader has been ousted and they're going to be contested? Too late June remains to be seen whether he wants to go for another election. I think there are a large question marks about that whether he wants if this is the minority that goes for more than two years. He may feel at that point that he's done enough and he's going to exit stays left but let's assume that he stayed around. There are a number of options for the Conservatives. I think it depends which one the membership picks. The Trudeau looks at the next election. It's not clear yet all of the potential candidates. But there is a female Rona Ambrose who was the interim leader of the conservative before chose there permanently. I think Mr Trudeau. It's very hard to run against a woman leader if however the conservative choose a leader who is small c conservative on social issues. WHO's the loss leader? They're not plays into truth. Hans they membership base will want a leader who is perhaps skeptical of same sex marriage who has for life with these credentials. That's why lost the last election partly his views on climate changes. Well I think the Conservative Party has to have a much more enlightened view. You've who is trying to appeal to and if it does pick a leader who can win votes in the largest provinces of Quebec Ontario then Trudeau may be in trouble Nixon. Sean thank you very much for joining.

I'm Rachel Humphries. Today in focus is over for Justin Trudeau Leyland. Chaco is a a freelance journalist based in Toronto. We've got this charismatic young in worldly well-traveled Liberal candidate running for prime minister every time he walks down. The street is flocked by fans. He poses for photographs offs and there's this general sense of excitement over Trudeau running for prime minister but I'm talking about here. Elliot Trudeau Justin Trudeau was his father. This is what we call Trudeau Mania in nineteen sixty minutes a world that Justin Trudeau the Prime Minister of Canada to now was born into kind of spent his whole life being a part of it's difficult to look at any list of kind of well respected well known in mired politicians in Canadian history and not fine just father Pierre Elliott near the top of any of those lists. I mean he's widely considered to be potentially kind of one of the greatest prime ministers nesters in Canadian History Pietro was was a person who did what no other politician had been able to do before he made the Liberal Party cool. The candidate. We know today a is very much a product of Pierre Elliott Trudeau peachy day sounds like a tough act to follow Pierre. Trudeau was probably the toughest act for any politician to follow appear. Elliott is is is this kind of he was described by one person is is the combination of Marlon Brando and Napoleon. He's this swamp. You know incredibly well addressed political leader who drives sports cars and Justin Trudeau unfortunately has always had the label of being kind of the Paris Hilton of Canadian politics and what do we know about Justin's childhood. I was growing up a petri dish shanty like him. Justin is is is an interesting character rain in Canadian politics because he was born while his father was prime minister and in the result he lived very publicly he really kind of had a pivotal moment when his father passed away in in two thousand when he gave this heartfelt emotional eulogy it was televised across the country is kept his promises and earned his sleep should about he had a clear mastery. Austria of of of capturing a room and speaking he resembled his father in many ways and just shoot ever express an interest in politics well he was growing up growing up. Justin Trudeau never felt as though he had very serious political leanings I mean he kind of bounced around to different jobs. Obviously was briefly a snowboard instructor. He worked as a drama teacher. Teaching at times math and French she was involved in kind of youth outdoor activities and there. There's no real indication that that the son of Canada's potentially most famous prime minister really odd deep political yearnings and he actually wrote him the Globe and Mail that yeah I don't read newspapers. Don't watch the news I figure if something important happens. Someone will tell me and I think it was. It was very much Justin Trudeau telling the public public. I'm not the person that my father was despite this treated came more involved with his father's Liberal Party in the early two one thousand and in two thousand seven was selected as their candidate for a safe seat in Montreal they go to the polls for for the leadership race and this is kind of trudeau the against different liberal candidates he just wins by a landslide we say he's taking politics seriously one of his first big political outings an MP in pay in two thousand twelve was in a boxing ring talk.

"Bertha. Hello Hello Hello. Thank you so much for being here. Fatima Hi Hi Jamie I should say Fatima and I work together at the Toronto Star Fatimid. How did you feel when I saw them. I I sort of how to this role flashback everyone the first fact I saw about the photo was that it was taken in two thousand one and then that year is he's very poignant for everyone because it's also the year of nine eleven and that's what we associate with that was the year a lot changed for Brown people across the world. I remember being in middle school at the time being bullied how how were you bullied. People would call me names whether it was terrorist or cookie or you know make deriding comments about the color of my skin or my culture and it it impacts you and it stays with you for very very long time so when you see a photo like that it's not the best feeling in the world to realize that the prime minister you're you're country partook in that and was part of that. Mockery then apparent mockery in some way and you know not not to take away from your experience in two thousand and one. I just want to point out that it does appear that the photo was taken before nine eleven not touch. There's no canarian between the experiences at all but it's just a a mental connection. I made just seeing the year. The photo was taken absolutely riddick. I was actually completely not surprised when I saw the photo. It was sort of one of these of course you know of course. He engaged in this behavior behavior. Of course he being the person he is embodying. The identities that he embodies would not have understood why this type of inaction might be something that was insensitive or hurtful or has a particular history for particularly black communities can I can. You unpack that a little bit more for me when you say him being the kind of person that he is. You weren't surprised what would you mean by. I mean that in our society we have layers of power structures so related to one's race their gender their sexual orientation their ability there religion there there are a number of things where the society has been really structured to privilege certain groups and marginalized other the group's. Trudeau through just his experience being an able bodied since gender heterosexual white man who's of an upper social class who was the son of a prime minister by definition really would not have had any experiences of marginalization or oppression and also there is kind of this implicit entitlement that I think white communities have had historically throughout throughout the world to other people's cultures into other people's land to other people's bodies so to mean this is a symbol of all of that and I think it almost it doesn't really matter whether he knew or he didn't know today he talked about layers of privilege privilege is that's what we're talking about here absolutely and and when you think when you say you think it doesn't really matter whether he knew it was racist or not. Can you elaborate elaborate on that for me just quickly yeah because this isn't really about intentions right so we talk a lot in. North American society around whether or not someone is a racist and I feel a lot of that has to do with equating seeing a racist or being racist with being bad and so we kind of dichotomy demise good and bad and you know being labeled racists is considered probably one of the worst things you could be labeled in Contemporary Society but historically historically this society was built with structures of racism going all the way back to the state being founded on the colonization of indigenous peoples lands and so really the history of Canada is a history of structural racism so I think we have to grapple with that. When we see issues like this come up otherwise we're we're really missing the picture Fatima Justin Trudeau could wipe off his face and still succeeded life and he he would still be okay. He didn't have to face the burden of Brown man Dan even if he was pretending to be one for one night whereas as replica said like everywhere in this country there are communities of color that struggle simply based on their skin color and I think that's the conversation that this very jarring very visually upsetting photo has started that we're now trying to grapple it right and do you think that this is a conversation that we haven't been having no not constructively at all even with the prime minister has labeled himself as inclusive and you know touted diversity city in this country part of the reason why the photo was jarring for me because the prime minister labeled himself as such a champion of multiculturalism and diversity but that is he's done. He's just been a champion. A photo like this puts into question his motivation. So what do you see. Do you see virtue signaling. Is that what you're saying yeah. I think I see a there's a question I have in my mind about whether he really means what he said when he says that Canada's great greatest asset is its diversity I do WanNa. Get both of your perspectives on whether you think he could be forgiven for this some of his. MP's have come to his defense offense today. Greg Ferguson Black and P seeking reelection in Quebec said the Trudeau's should be judged on his record promoting equality and diversity which note it does sound like Fatima you would disagree with and not on incidents twenty years ago Russia. Do you think that he can apologize and that people could forgive forgive from for this. I think he can apologize. Any people might very well. Forgive him but I think that speaks to his white privilege because he's able to engage in an act that is you know one of the few things that I think is considered to be an explicitly racist act and be the leader of a nation and instill potentially be forgiven and it's the the sort of notion of innocence and intention that is not necessarily afforded to other people.

"Hey Jamie wow wow was right. That was a shocking development yup. Definitely I think you and I have mentioned there's kind of been an absence of moments that turn the dial or change things in this is definitely finitely it and I this certainly looks like something that could move the needle. I want to get in to that with you a little bit later but first let's talk about. This picture described this picture to me. I'm looking at the picture right now. this is a picture that was published in time as you mentioned a Mr Trudeau is flanked by three women if you're if you're looking to the looking at it head on the left of him as well as another woman to the right he's dressed up completely and including his hands painted painted in Brown face he says that he he was you know he put makeup on himself. this was at a party when he was twenty nine years old in two thousand and one at the school will he attended where he was teaching at at the time well private school yeah it's called West Point Grey Academy community and and how do we think time got this photograph well. They are very explicit about it. Actually it's they say that earlier this month. They obtained a copy of the yearbook in which this photo was like the photo was in the yearbook at the yearbook was called the view and they got it from Vancouver businessmen. They say named Michael Adamson Maha who was part of the West Point Grey Academy Quote Unquote Community He was not at the party. The party was attended by school faculty administrators and parents of students and he said Mr Adamson that he I saw the photograph back in July and felt it should be made eight public okay so that's how they got it okay and and I will say in this photograph Justin Trudeau is certainly wearing the most intricate kurt costume of the bunch. He is the only person in Brown face yes obsolete and it says his spokespeople say it was a photo taken while he was teaching Vancouver at the school's annual dinner which had a a costume theme of Arabian nights attend with friends and colleagues and he was dressed as a character from Aladdin okay so very quickly after the story broke which I think was just after dinnertime. Justin Trudeau responded and here is what he had to say last night in Halifax. Was this bottle racist. You're just yes yes it was I didn't consider it a racist action at the time but now we know better and this was something that was unacceptable yesterday you you'll be allowed to stay. I'm going to be asking Canadians to forgive me for what I did. I shouldn't have done that I take responsibility for it was a dumb something to do. I'm disappointed in myself on pissed off at myself for having done it. I wish I hadn't done it but I did. It and I apologize for primarily to to put it into some sort of wider context. You have to remember the last time of speaking to you. Jamie we were talking about candidates and the Liberals Criticism of Andrew shears position which was if stuff has happened in the past and you say sorry about it. He people can be forgiven right as long as someone takes responsibility for what they said and and and and addresses the fact that in two thousand nine hundred and some things have sent in the past are inappropriate today he was resoundingly criticized by not only Justin Trudeau but the the Liberal Party for saying saying that last night that's exactly what Justin Trudeau asked right for forgiveness for forgiveness because he regretted his actions he has moved on since then and and he thinks differently now and he apologized right and he said he should have known better and I will say a very significant piece of information that came out of that press conference. Justin Trudeau admitted that he'd actually done this before. Is that the only time in your life you've ever done something like that. when I was in high school I dressed up at a talent show and saying Dale with with with makeup yeah and then actually even beyond on many of the second instance at the end of the press conference and other reporter asked whether or not there is anything beyond those two incidents in just WanNa read exactly what he said Ed the reporter asked. Do you want to Canadians about any other instances where you were concerned a racist hot walk-throughs around I think I think it's it's been plenty. the fact of the matter is that I've I've always and you'll know this been more enthusiastic about costumes than is somehow is sometimes appropriate but these are the situations that that I regret deeply that the only two of their more of the situations I regret the he's not unequivocally saying no we'll check immediately sort of makes me question if there are more right and this idea about him being enthusiastic about costumes. I'm not entirely sure what he was referring to. I thought aww maybe he was referring to his India trip. Yes he went. She was widely roundly criticized for wearing you know a very elaborate outfits with his wife and and family.

"Among any of the. Seven nations, and like he has done a lot of things for refugees to respond to Syrian newcomer. And there were some programs that we use that I was looking at that he actually initiated that did make the settlement of has gone a lot easier. Like I firsthand like I had to go through specific government overseas things, and I was like, wow, okay. Justin Trudeau created these like as someone who obviously thinks candidate needs newcomers in order to survive like the east coast literally is an aging population. People need to understand that. If we want our economy just five we need newcomers to Canada. He did help do that. Which is the right thing to do ethically. But also from an economic perspective we need people to come to Canada. So I just think like that was something I've got to experience firsthand that was thankful to some of the policies that he and his administration had brought in and I was like that wouldn't have been the same case if there had been someone elected in the conservative government. I'm sure so he's done. Good things. I think is what you're trying to say. Yeah. And I think that for like you said, I do think in some ways, and I like. I won't paint conservatives especially conservatives in Canada with a blanket brush because I think it is a much different country than America right now. But it is like I worry that these things have an always do happen. And I wonder like you said like if it was within the conservative party, would it maybe have just never come out because there weren't progressive candidates like we've had right now. And I know genuinely think that that wouldn't happen. And so that's the frustrating part of that could lose an election. And that's something that I'm sure like they the two women who have left now are going to have to think about. So that is maybe not fair to throw on them when they're like. But I'm standing for my. What's that? Asleep at night. That's the thing that for me. I'm trying to figure out I think like big picture. This is a good thing. This is a good moment for democracy to have a woman come forward and face all these people and say, you know, what I feel was unethical happened. And this is how and this is why and that we actually get to see the inner workings of politics, and even listening to Jerry butts will never get over that name even listening to Jerry butts like half to speak today about how they went through the decision making of how to move people around within. It was like we don't actually have to hear about this that often. I even if we do I don't listen to it. So we're all hopefully tapped in and I think what I worry about is that a lot of people. This is a scandal that I've been so excited to read about maybe preparing for this podcast. But we have a lot of peers you've just like glaze over these headlines, and maybe we'll leave this thinking. Oh, wow. Justin Trudeau is corrupt. And all these things that I'm like, well, it's actually really important that you read what happened people's opinions read out. I think these women in many ways are standing up for what is right. And I like. I'm so proud of them for doing that. But like understand what the other options are in the next election. Obviously Andrew shears using this as like a moment to be like he needs to step down as prime minister. And all these things which I don't agree with. Oh, yeah. Also because people have talked about in Ontario right now, the similar things have happened with our conservative government. Yes..

"So here we go. Here we go some thoughts talk about Justin Trudeau. Okay. Let's try and like Chuck chat about this through the lens of him. So what I find so interesting about this whole case is that I think it's helping people really understand and make politics become something that is not so confusing. And it seems kind of simple. It's like it sounds confusing. It theory because these companies that clearly a legal things they need to be charged. But these companies also employed Canada like what do you do? So I'm empathetic to like all sides of this. Yeah. Me too. But one thing that I would say is that I find I when she talks about the way that Jodie Wilson. We'll talks about the way that they cut sort of hassling her to you know, maybe change her decision. Maybe get some more insight into these things and even the way. That she has said that gesture true droves did set. You know, I am the MP in the back like if we lose all these jobs, or if they lose these contracts in Canada that could influence the election like that's what he insinuated things. Like that. Just makes me like oh my God. Okay. This I'm glad that we're bringing to light that this is corruption. This does happen in government. And I think that it's really not good optics for him because he's sort of ran and came into power and was really good at taking to the stage, the world stage as this person who's going to speak for the people, and like be anti corruption and be very democratic be like, we believe in democracy, and we're going to follow these rules, and we're not going to be behind the scenes like so many other governments have trading and benefiting auto stuff benefitting off of the tax payers dollar in this sort of thing. So one thing that just made me so frustrated and all of this because we're can talk maybe now or later, but how this is potentially going to loosen the election. And I think what's frustrating to me is that when I think about the conservatives, and I think what other. I'm sure this happens a lot. I get it. It doesn't always. And I think that's why these women are in my opinion. Awesome. They're almost acting as whistle blowers to allow the public to understand that these things happen all the time. But he hasn't spoken down the barrel of the camera to the Canadian people in a way that has sounded like authentic real. Yeah. He ran on a platform of being real. Yeah. And I mean, some people have always questioned said that you were like, yeah. But there was a point where I was like, okay. He feels more real than most politicians. I like when a politician can just talk off the cuff and not sound so scripted. And it is like, yeah. I I wish right now that Justin Trudeau would sit down and put a YouTube video out or a livestream just like. And this is like it looks bad. I'm gonna talk through what happened from my perspective. I think one difficult thing is that. In all these articles in all this information. It's the prime minister's office. So he has a team of people. So it's not necessarily him. Who's the person Ness-like telling them that they have to change this. Right. Even he might be behind the scenes asking people to do that. But from like, Jodie Wilson, Ray, Boltz perspective. Like he wasn't coming to her being like you need to change it because he has a whole team of people who manage listening. Yeah. So she was saying that she was being reached out to by law different like staffers on his team. And then obviously that one meeting with him specifically to her face saying like mentioning it, but not young like, oh, I'm not pressuring. But like just I wanna make sure we all on the same page and aware of what's going on. So then he did talk to the public today. And I watched it, and he also had like Jerry butts law of that name his like his literal best friend from like university. Who also was his. Yeah. His principal secretary who came forward and try to portray that this was a lack of sort of. A lack of trust and like misunderstanding between different size like she obviously took that being like being demoted from like attorney general to become like the veteran's affair minister as like a d motion..
