The Buffalo Chronicle is a questionable source, at best, but it is reporting on a rumour that has been circulation for several days now. Its current story says that “Less than two Screen Shot 2019-10-07 at 18.25.25weeks ahead of federal elections that have already been looking conclusively grim for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, rumors of an explosive sex scandal are percolating at the highest echelons of Canada’s media establishment … [and] … Ottawa’s longest-tenured political observers had been expecting a career-ending expose in Sunday’s edition of The Globe and Mail — but that story never came.  Sources are now telling The Chronicle that Trudeau is in private talks with the principal source of that piece to suppress explosive sex allegations that, if made public, would likely force Trudeau to resign his office … [but] … Trudeau’s accuser is said to be a former student at West Point Grey Academy and the daughter of a wealthy Canadian businessman.  Sources tell The Chronicle that she is being represented by counsel and is being offered monetary compensation in exchange for a pending, but not yet signed, non-disclosure agreement.” (The image, above, is one from the now infamous West Point Grey Academy yearbook.)

Normally, I would wait on this, but the English language debate ~ the only English language debate, despite there being two in French ~ which is timed, it appears, to deprive many Western Canadians of a chance to see and hear the leaders and which is half-over as this goes on-line, and I can only hope that one of the moderators ~ some of whom are also questionable, in my opinion, ~ will at least offer Prime Minister Justin Trudeau an opportunity to categorically deny this unproven allegation.

If there is any substance, at all, to any of this then Justin Trudeau must resign or be forced out of this election by his Party,

  1. So, we share information from a “questionable source, at best”? If there IS an injunction, as the rumour mill is saying, today’s been a work day, so I suspect we would have heard more about this than people repeating rumours which, in many cases, they just ache to be true. If one thinks Canadian media would hold back, I would be surprised if U.S. media would let this go by. Twitter & FB fever =/= truth or a story. Let’s not forget a few weeks ago, Twitter was abuzz with the RCMP Commissioner being related by marriage to Morneau – which wasn’t true. But once the well is poisoned, even if it’s not true, mission accomplished. Let’s see how this unfolds, then …

  2. Still no word of an injunction, but there is this from a media criticism/analysis site: “… Two well-placed sources at the paper tell Canadaland that, yes, there was an investigation into why he left the school — but that it failed to turn up any evidence of an alleged affair. There was no court injunction, no gag order. Even the premise of the idea that the courts got involved is wild — while a judge could, in theory, bar a newspaper from reporting such a story, it couldn’t make secret the fact that it heard the case. Trudeau v. The Globe and Mail would be on the court dockets. It isn’t. The Liberal Party has also told Canadaland categorically, no, there is no court action of any kind against the Globe …” http://bit.ly/2Iz4Pxr But I guess some who are convinced won’t be unconvinced, so the narrative’s set.
