Faux départ pour les audiences du comité de la justice des Communes sur l’affaire SNC-Lavalin

Le greffier du comité a fait savoir en avant-midi que le comité n’a tout simplement pas réussi à s’assurer que suffisamment de témoins soient présents pour que l’audience se tienne. Le tout pourrait avoir lieu jeudi, si des témoins sont en mesure de se présenter.

Ces audiences doivent permettre d’entendre Jody Wilson-Raybould, mais l’ex-ministre de la Justice ne comparaîtra probablement pas avant lundi. Même dans un tel cas, on ignore si elle sera très loquace.

L’ex-ministre a invoqué à plusieurs reprises le privilège du secret entre l’avocat et son client pour refuser de commenter l’affaire depuis que les allégations attribuées à des sources confidentielles ont été révélées pour la première fois par le Globe and Mail, il y a près de deux semaines.

Le comité dominé par les libéraux souhaite tout d’abord entendre des universitaires qui préciseront les principes juridiques qui sous-tendent cette affaire à l’origine de la démission de Mme Wilson-Raybould du Cabinet et du départ, cette semaine, du proche conseiller du premier ministre Justin Trudeau, son secrétaire principal Gerald Butts.

Ces principes comprennent la disposition légale récemment adoptée permettant la mise en place d’accords de réparation dans les affaires de corruption touchant des entreprises, une forme de négociation de plaidoyer dans laquelle une entreprise paie une amende, mais évite une condamnation criminelle qui pourrait la conduire à la faillite.

Ils incluent également la doctrine Shawcross qui précise dans quelle mesure un procureur général peut consulter des collègues du Cabinet au sujet d’une poursuite.

Les députés de l’opposition siégeant au comité de la justice estiment que les audiences seront sans intérêt, à moins que Justin Trudeau ne lève le secret professionnel qui empêche Mme Wilson-Raybould de s’exprimer librement et à moins que de hauts fonctionnaires de son bureau, y compris M. Butts, ne soient appelés à témoigner.

Les députés devaient également voter aujourd’hui sur une motion non contraignante du NPD réclamant une enquête publique sur l’affaire et la levée du secret professionnel de l’avocat.

Les sénateurs conservateurs ont aussi présenté leur propre motion demandant une enquête du comité sénatorial des affaires juridiques et constitutionnelles.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

Where to Live Now: A data-driven look at Ottawa neighbourhoods

Editor

What does community have to do with buying a house? Do people really want friendly neighbours, or do they just want the most square footage for their buck?

In The Village Effect: How Face-to-Face Contact Can Make Us Healthier, Happier and Smarter, Montreal psychologist Susan Pinker cited a 2010 study conducted at Brigham Young University in Idaho that analyzed relationship data for more than 300,000 people over nearly eight years. She discovered that people who were integrated into their communities had half the risk of dying during that time as those who led more solitary lives. In Pinker’s analysis, integration meant simple interactions such as exchanging baked goods, babysitting, borrowing tools, and spur-of-the-moment visits — exactly the kinds of exchanges we saw grow when COVID-19 forced us all to stay home.

For this year’s real estate feature in the Spring/Summer 2020 print edition, we crunched the numbers to find the neighbourhoods where we think you’re most likely to find such opportunities for engagement. Using data available through the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS), we chose six indicators that we believed would attract those looking to connect with the people around them. Omitting rural areas, we awarded points to each neighbourhood according to where it landed in the ranking. (In the event of a tie, we used a secondary indicator of the same theme to refine the ranking.) You’ll find the ten neighbourhoods that performed the best according to those six indicators listed below, along with resident profiles and notable destinations in each ’hood — though many have been forced to adapt to COVID-19, most are offering delivery and/or take-out, and we are hopeful they will resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
