The entire affair smacks of a smoke screen calculated hopefully to toss buckets of wet sand onto the political flames. In matters of military and global strategic affairs, and considerations of national security which are entirely bound up in the former, JT is so far underwater and out of his element its worse than laughable, its inherently dangerous.

The Mrs. Bucket of world leaders.

Jerry Dias, the unifor boss who stepped down over a $50k bribe will not face charges. He famously once said he was the Conservative government’s worst nightmare.

In a letter sent to media members of Unifor on Monday, Dias said he recognizes many journalists in Unifor are concerned his frequent partisan attacks against the likes of Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and Ontario Premier Doug Ford cast a negative shadow over the public’s perception of those journalists as unbiased.

Unifor represents roughly 12,000 media workers, including some journalists at Global News, CTV News and the Globe and Mail.



That came after the decision by the Liberals to include Unifor as one of eight members on a panel that will advise on new criteria for which media outlets should be eligible for a $600 million bailout package of tax credits and hiring incentives aimed mainly at shoring up struggling legacy newspapers.



Much of the criticism about Unifor’s involvement on the panel stemmed from the fact they and Dias have repeatedly billed themselves as the Conservatives “worst nightmare” and as “the resistance” to Scheer.

Johnston decides there shouldn’t be an enquiry into foreign meddling in Canadian elections. Dias walks away without charges. 🤷🏼

"Toronto-based Navigator is a public relations, lobbying and crisis management firm. Its slogan is "When you can't afford to lose” and the firm has developed a reputation for steering notable Canadians through high-profile scandals—at high prices."

Isn’t there another honourable Canadian that can do this job, who isn’t a very close acquaintance of the PM?

He should never have accepted this so-called duty.

He has honour for stepping down. That makes up for not refusing this position when he was first chosen. To say he was hounded out only paints him as a coward.

The vilest political actor in this situation was the one who appointed him in the first place.

I'm encouraging Trudeau to name Mark Norman to conduct the inquiry, he would have the clearance needed, we know he is honest.

I thought it was up to Singh? What’s his agreement with Trudeau, again?

I think he should just do it himself. That would be honest at least.

It does doesn’t it. So does having a family friend and business colleague investigate you. Let’s just not pretend anymore.
