Further on Mark Norman.
https://calgaryherald.com/news/canad...5-ad28b261c83a

Quote:
The decision was a massive win for Henein and her client. The politically-charged case against Norman — he was accused of leaking confidential material related to a ship building contract — had come to centre in the public eye, like the SNC affair, around an accusation of political interference in a high-profile prosecution.

The SNC-Lavalin affair has come to define the later part of Trudeau’s tenure in office. And on Wednesday, Henein kept the focus on Trudeau, and his brand, from the moment she sat down.

“Before we get started,” she began, “I’d just like to introduce the” — at this point she paused for half a beat and allowed herself the slightest smile — “all female team that represented Vice-Admiral Norman.” She delivered her next line in a stone-faced deadpan. “Fortunately Vice-Admiral Norman didn’t fire the females he hired.”

Liberal government has ‘a secret plan’ to ban firearms, says MP

Quote:
Tony Clement says well-placed sources have informed him that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will announce a ban on legal firearms at a women’s conference this June in Vancouver.

“I am told on good authority that the prime minister has a secret plan to ban legal firearms. Apparently, this secret plan is to be executed by cabinet directive with no debate in parliament,” the independent MP for Parry Sound–Muskoka told the House of Commons at the close of Thursday’s question period.

Begging all sorts of questions.

“We won’t lie to you,” they lied.

“Oh good,” we said, “that’ll be alight then.”

The federal NDP leader does not want to talk about the B.C. LNG project. To the point where he'd rather look like a fool than talk about the project.

Next up, maybe he will clumsily try to avoid speaking about a new SUV plant in Ontario.

One week after losing B.C. seat to Green Party, NDP leader Singh now opposes fracking

Quote:
In an about-face coming a week after his party lost a Vancouver Island seat to the Green Party, federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says he doesn’t support fracking and has concerns about a major liquefied natural gas project in British Columbia.

Singh, who has previously voiced support for LNG Canada’s $40-billion natural gas export facility in northern B.C. and the Coastal GasLink pipeline that would feed it, told reporters in Ottawa on Monday that “the future of Canada does not include fracking.” His comments come just days after NDP candidate Svend Robinson tweeted that his party’s loss of last week’s byelection in Nanaimo—Ladysmith is a “wake up call,” and demanded a stronger stance from the federal leader “opposing fracking and all new oil and gas infrastructure.”
Bold mine.

Trudeau blames Harper for Vice-Admiral Norman charges

Quote:
“Will the prime minister now make the only appropriate decision and apologize to Mark Norman?” Scheer asked.

Trudeau’s response was to blame Stephen Harper for awarding the contract in the first place.

Never mind that it was Trudeau’s government that coached witnesses, withheld documents, stopped Vice-Admiral Norman from accessing his own emails while Gerry Butts could do so to reply to allegations on the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Scheer not only pointed out that double standard but also asked why the PM caved so quickly to give Omar Khadr $10.5 million when he was suing the government but was willing to spend untold millions prosecuting Norman on an issue it turns out he could never win on but as NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said, helped Trudeau’s rich friends.
More:

Quote:
“This prime minister gave $10.5 million to Khadr, a convicted terrorist, so that he wouldn’t have to fight him in court,” Scheer said.

“But when it comes to a decorated naval officer who has put his career making Canadians safe, this prime minister spared no expense fighting him in court. Why the double standard?”

That should be troubling to anyone of the few supporters he has left. What a disgrace as a party leader.

Canada’s Afghan war memorial was dedicated in secrecy and families of the fallen weren't invited

Quote:
The Canadian Forces confirmed Thursday evening on Facebook that it had held a dedication service at the new Afghanistan Memorial Hall at the National Defence Headquarters (Carling) in the west end of Ottawa. But that happened three days earlier on May 13. “The event was attended by senior Canadian military leadership and Department management,” according to the Facebook posting.

No press release was issued. The decision was made by officials to keep the event quiet and only to release the news via Twitter and Facebook at a later date. Families of the fallen were not invited to the dedication ceremony.
Bold mine.

Curious, that...
