Bloc Leader Questions Prime Minister Trudeau’s Appointment Of David Johnston

Trudeau should pick people who are “not, from the very beginning, friends of him.”

Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet is questioning Justin Trudeau’s choice of David Johnston for the ‘Special Rapporteur’ role.

Speaking to reporters at the House of Commons, Blanchet said Trudeau’s credibility would have benefitted if he had appointed someone who wasn’t so closely connected to him.

“The prime minister should create, promote his own credibility by picking people who are not, from the very beginning, friends of him,” Bloc Leader Yves-François Blanchet says of David Johnston’s nomination as special rapporteur to probe foreign election interference.”

The Bloc Leader’s criticism of Johnston’s appointment as Special Rapporteur matches what many others are saying.

The perception – and reality – of Johnston and Trudeau having such a close relationship brings the entire process into question, and further emphasizes why a full public inquiry is necessary.
