Trudeau needs to come clean
No ifs, ands or Butts
Above Image: GlobalNews Feb. 19: Trudeau government leaks support in wake of SNC-Lavalin, Wilson-Raybould matter: Ipsos Poll
Is Scheer madness setting in? Hard to say due to conflicting polls:
NtnlNewsWatch Feb. 19:
By now we all should know that the wording of poll questions is crucial to the outcome.
There's no end of conflict and outrage anywhere you look these days, to which a certain cartoonist can attest, but the image he's produced may well be the final depiction of Butts and Trudeau conspiring together:
GlobalNews: Halifax artist apologizes for controversial cartoon of Jody Wilson-Raybould
Maybe it's because I'm not indigenous -- though I am a woman who has always supported indigenous rights -- but I'm not offended by Wilson-Raybould being portrayed in this manner, the reason being that it depicts her situation exactly as it is.
Her hands are tied; she is gagged. She can't speak about the SNC-Lavalin affair. And I am offended by that.
I also commend Michael de Adder for depicting it as it is and taking the fallout so gracefully.
Wimpy Trudeau (I've always thought the boxing match [YouTube] between him and Brazeau looked fake) IS still swinging at Wilson-Raybould by repeatedly insisting he gave her carte blanche last year with regard to that case.
Maybe Trudeau did personally tell her she had a free hand, but what did his personal advisor, Gerald Butts, then say to her? No doubt it began with a "but". And it would have been pretty much the same as Trudeau instructing her himself.
Which may well be the reason Butts' butt has been hit by the same swinging exit door and is now bound by the same confidentiality rules as Wilson-Raybould.
According to a Maclean's study of the matter of cabinet secrecy, Trudeau does have the authority to give Wilson-Raybould permission to speak.
But one has to marvel at this caution from the Maclean's expert:
I'm reminded of Frank Caliendo doing George W. Bush:
Inside words prevent the public from knowing the mind of the person for whom they vote.
Outside words are: "transparency and accountability".
