CHARBONNEAU – Wilson-Raybould: a uniquely Canadian scandal

SCANDAL IN BRITAIN brought down the Conservative government in 1963 when it was revealed that model and nightclub dancer Christine Keeler had slept with British and Russian officials. Revelations of the previously well-hidden world of sex- and alcohol-fuelled orgies among Britain’s political elite rocked the establishment.

The walking, breathing, American scandal involves President Donald Trump groping women, mocking disabled people and provoking attacks on blacks. His former lawyer Michael Cohen says: “He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat.” Cohen testified that Trump wanted him to pay off adult-film actress Stormy Daniels who says Trump had an affair with her.

Canada’s scandal is not like that.

    Time will tell if the Canadian public takes to heart the courage Minister Raybould showed in standing up for her convictions.
    Often, the quiet convictions in one’s heart are far greater than any conviction handed down by a court of law. Woe to any level of government that makes the blunder of letting this happen.
