Wilson-Raybold’s new book needs to raise serious issues


Even if Justin Trudeau wasn’t shrouded in the magic and mystery of Trudeau’s name, is he still running for Congress after explaining him in Jody Wilson Raybold’s new book?

It’s a fair question, and it’s also an unanswered question that can be quantified. However, Canadians voted on September 20 to examine the impact of Wilson Raybold’s “Indians in the Cabinet: Telling the Truth to Power” whether they choose to form a majority or minority government. It’s clear that you’re not ready to.

But juxtapose the recollections of the former Attorney General of the Liberal Party who fought for her political life during the SNC-La Balance Scandal against the legacy of the #MeToo movement four years ago. Then someone outside the folds of the Trudeau dynasty would not have survived politically for hours after the publication of the book itself this week, or an excerpt from The Globe and Mail on September 11. Becomes almost axiomatic.

In other words. His father, Trudeau’s 1990 biographer, coined the phrase “he still bothers us” to describe his political heritage. If his son Trudeau makes up the majority next week, can wise wording resist writing “he is still flaunting it”?

Justin Trudeau flaunted his, at least as Wilson Raybold portrayed it in her case, to maintain his position and career in which she made great sacrifices and invested great hope. Men’s power over women’s subordinates who are completely dependent on good grace. It was the essence of #MeToo to counter that deep and dark man’s urge to control and silence. Then came the claim that “women must be believed”. It closed the eternity he said / she said the escape hatch.

So it’s ironic that the media coverage of her book reduced Wilson-Raybold’s revelation to the classic he said / she said. She wants Trudeau to lie to her and says she wasn’t pressured during the SNC-Lavalin blunder. He claims he never asked her to change in advance. Her words for him. What are you doing?

Still, almost anyone with an experience of leveraged power imbalances nods to recognition when reading her account. Some people may mutter with their hands on their faces. “Oh, that’s what happened to me.”

Wilson Raybold’s claim that he was pressured to lie forms the accusation of her story. But her slow construction to get there is the true reward of how to reveal the prime minister’s personality, instincts, and urges through her eyes for the past six years, and perhaps another five years.

Some may dismiss these revelations as merely a recognition of Wilson Raybold. But what about “women must be believed”? And how do you overcome Wilson Raybold, a well-known lawyer for Wilson Raybold, by documenting the situation in detail? This is a feature she publicly showed in notes and recordings presented at the Commons Committee hearing on SNC-Lavalin.

In her case, she finds herself summoned to a meeting alone at 7:30 pm in a hotel room in Vancouver, Trudeau, while she is out for dinner with her family, discussing the SNC-Lavalin issue. I did. Before the meeting begins, he offers her a tour of the suites on the top floor. Meanwhile, he accidentally mentioned that the hotel belonged to his friend. Read Invisible Ink: “I’m a kid of the Westmount Trust Fund with a historic surname. I run the country. You’re an indigenous girl in Cape Mudge. I’m you. Allows me to work for me. “

There is a strange vignette during the tour, and he mock-attacks a “strange statue” that turns out to be made of rubber. Or maybe it’s not that strange. Remember that this is the Prime Minister who confessed to Rolling Stone magazine in 2017. “I came across a good foil, and a crappy tough guy senator from the indigenous community,” to beat him in a charity boxing match, he and his liberal buddy.

Of course, the reference was Patrick Brazo, then Senator. His fuss was planned in the theater to lift Justin from acting the weak to a position of power worthy of Trudeau’s name.Imagine you are an indigenous woman and you are alone in a room that Man. That man who has the whole political future.

Wilson-Raybould received the message. But she also had something to deliver. She wasn’t retreating. She wanted him to be clean, there is no other wording about it. Passages are textbook depictions of substance abuse behavior.

“I could feel the conversation starting to change. It was going to be personal. He asked if I trust him …. I could see the upset building. …. His mood was changing. I remember seeing it. I remember feeling it, “she wrote.

And this is: “I cut him off and argued.” Don’t blame me. This is not my fault. I felt he turned me on further because he was lost — I could see it in his face, his eyes, and his manners. “

Independent Thought Experiment: Ask yourself if you can sleep comfortably at night, knowing that a man is asking you to run your country. Imagine his name is Hossenfeffer instead of Trudeau and try again.
