Andrew Coyne:

 

 

 

David Johnston is a remarkable Canadian, a model of integrity and decency throughout a lifetime of personal accomplishment and public service – as professor of law, as principal of McGill and as one of our finest Governors-General.

 

He is also a wildly inappropriate choice as independent special rapporteur, in the matter of China’s attempts to interfere in Canadian elections, and whatever blame might attach to the Liberal government for allowing them.

 

The rapporteur – an invented title, it means adviser, though the Prime Minister has pledged to be bound by his recommendations – will have to decide, among other things, whether to call a public inquiry into the matter, and on what terms.

 

_________________

 

There is first his personal relationship with the Prime Minister: Mr. Trudeau himself has described him as a lifelong “family friend,” a friendship cemented over many summers as neighbouring cottagers in the Laurentians.

 

There are also the professional associations. His status as one of 23 “members” of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation would raise eyebrows, even without the news that the government of China had, early in Mr. Trudeau’s prime ministership, secretly funnelled $200,000 to the foundation through an intermediary – apparently as part of its influence operations.

Don’t forget the former head of the Trudeau Foundation was appointed as the assessor of whether or not Chinese donations to the Foundation were appropriate, while he served as the head of the Foundation.

If you were a criminal and could appoint your own investigators and judges wouldn’t you?
They are beyond caring’s that you know. Look at France.

Was it? Or was access to information just not so instant.

No, things are more extreme in clown world edition. It’s not just better access to information.

Who says the media isn’t paid for.

CHEK:

Better late than never: Trudeau finally gets a home-turf visit from U.S. president




https://www.cheknews...sident-1145206/


Joe Biden’s last official visit to Canada came with a palpable sense of foreboding.

Change was in the air. Authoritarian leaders in Syria and Turkey were consolidating power. Britain had voted to leave the European Union. And Donald Trump was waiting in the wings to take over the White House.

“Genuine leaders” were in short supply, and Canada and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would be called upon to step up, said the U.S. vice-president, who was on a farewell tour of sorts in the waning days of the Obama administration.

Six years later, Biden is coming back — this time as president — and the world is very different. His message likely won’t be.

“There’s a seriousness to this moment in America,” said Goldy Hyder, the president and CEO of the Business Council of Canada, who spent much of last week meeting with U.S. officials in D.C.

Our unelected King’s representative that signs the orders that bypass any shred of democracy we have is also robbing us…

“ Governor General's four-day visit to Germany with 32 guests cost taxpayers $700K
Expenses for the four-day state visit include $103,000 in in-flight catering for the government aircraft's 33 passengers”
