As long as Singh continues to support the liberals , Justin will remain king . And Jagmeet needs his pension .I would be happy at this point with Jagmeet Singh, just allowing parliament to operate as it supposed to in a minority government.
The majority of MPs want an inquiry called and they need to use the tools at their disposal to force the government’s hand. That includes the Non-Coalition Coalition between the NPD/Liberals.
I always thought the House of Commons is government , silly me .Singh said that the problem from the outset of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointing Johnston in March as part of a suite of measures meant to assuage Canadians' concerns about foreign interference, is the process is not “independent” from the government.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh slammed foreign interference special rapporteur David Johnston's refusal to heed the House of Commons' call for him to step down as 'tone-deaf.'apple.news
Unfortunately, with the NDP/Liberal Non-Coalition Coalition…the NDP aren’t “Independent” from the government as long as they are in this non-agreement agreement to prop up the liberal government, no matter what…
Within an hour of the non-binding motion being passed, Johnston issued a statement asserting his intention to continue on with his work. He said that while he "deeply" respects the right of the House of Commons to "express its opinion about my work going forward" his mandate came from ‘the government.’
"'My mandate comes from the government.' He means exactly what he says: he's not independent. He's solely accountable to the very government suspected of knowingly ignoring foreign interference," tweeted Conservative deputy leader on Wednesday.
Calls for an “Independent” Public Inquiry continue to be ignored by David Johnston & Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party as long as Jagmeet Singh continues to prop them up regardless of what scandals they’re involved in. Jagmeet makes noise, but doesn’t back it up with ‘real’ action, which holds Parliament & Canada hostage to a MINORITY Liberal Party.
Only 27% of Canadians believe David Johnston is credible and impartial on foreign interference: poll — National PostThe former governor general has been under fire over his qualifications as special rapporteur, including his ties to Justin Trudeau and the Trudeau family foundationapple.news
Which is early in 2025 if I remember correctly. I’m sure that’s part of the deal with Trudeau…but Trudeau will throw Singh under the bus in a heartbeat if it suits his needs at any given time….& what will Jagmeet do? Nothing ‘cuz he can’t admit it exists.The non deal deal will expire the moment Jag's pension is secure.
It’s good to be king .OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he is committed to keeping David Johnston in place as Canada's “special rapporteur” on foreign interference, despite a majority of MPs voting in favour of his stepping down from the gig.
Trudeau said in Toronto Friday that he looks forward to public hearings (as opposed to a real Public Inquiry) the governor general is expected to hold "across the country" over the coming months before he releases a final report by the end of October.
The House of Commons passed an NDP motion earlier this week, with the support of Conservative and Bloc Québécois MPs, that urged Johnston to step aside and asked the government to call a public inquiry with someone who’s actually Independent with subpoena powers, ect… that’s acceptable to ALL of Parliament instead of just Justin Trudeau & the Libs.

Do you think all (?) or the majority of Parliament would agree on him?I hear Robin Camp's free.
You may very well be right. Johnston is set to appear for three hours before a parliamentary committee on Tuesday to discuss his report on foreign interference by China's government.I'm dead certain all of Parliament wouldn't agree on "Canada is a country."
And as far as a public inquiry goes, I see little chance that most of Parliament would agree on it.
