  1. Wow the commissioner of the election debates.
    Great job putting someone who cant tell the difference from an App and a OS as special rapporteur. No doubt this guy wont be able to tell the difference between a legitimate political donation from one being done by an intermediary on behalf of a hostile foreign state.

  2. He is board member of the Trudeau Foundation and long time family friend … washing away misdeeds maybe a forgone conclusion?

  3. He is a long time family friend of trudeau that’s why he was appointed. But the way you reported it I am guessing you are on trudeau side

  4. The guy was in charge of the election debates, do you really think he’ll say the process is flawed? We need a public inquiry.

  5. Personally I don’t think there has EVER been a MORE hated disliked Prime Minister in Canadian History
    Polls show it!!!!

  6. So on the Trudeau foundation website it lists him as a member, bit of a conflict there isn’t it

  7. hopefully this rapporteur decides to call a public inquiry because there are to many unanswered questions , he will find out that most of the information he will have access to will be redacted and wont be able to complete the investigation , that will be a given .
