Politics This Morning: Rouleau Commission begins final week of Emergencies Act hearingsGood Monday morning, Prime Minister JUSTIN TRUDEAU has returned to Ottawa after an international tour that included stops in Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Tunisia. Trudeau spent the weekend in Djerba, Tunisia, for the 18th summit of La Francophonie. Trudeau and high-profile members of his cabinet are scheduled to testify this week before the Public Order Emergency Commission. The commission, which has set this Friday as the final day for witness testimony, will have to cover a lot of ground this week in order to get through the final names on its witness list. Senior CSIS officials DAVID VIGNEAULT, MICHELLE TESSIER, and MARIE-HELENE CHAYER are scheduled to testify at 9:30 a.m. Ottawa time today, to be followed by Emergency Preparedness Minister BILL BLAIR. The rest of the week will see testimony from Intergovernmental Affairs Minister DOMINIC LEBLANC, Public Safety Minister MARCO MENDICINO, Attorney General DAVID LAMETTI, Defence Minister ANITA ANAND, Transport Minister OMAR ALGHABRA, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister CHRYSTIA FREELAND, and KATIE TELFORD and other senior PMO staffers. Trudeau is the last witness on the list. On Friday, commission counsel questioned JANICE CHARETTE, the clerk of the Privy Council, about a Privy Council Office memorandum advising the prime minister to invoke the Emergencies Act, but also acknowledging that this decision might be vulnerable to a legal challenge later on.

'A quiet killing of the Charter’: experts debate spirit and letter of notwithstanding clause's pre-emptive useLegal and constitutional experts are split on the pre-emptive use of the notwithstanding clause, with some saying it represents “a quiet killing of the Charter,” while others said the practice goes against neither the spirit nor the letter of the section granting that power. The issue has drawn attention in recent weeks following the pre-emptive invocation of Sec. 33 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the Ontario legislature by Premier Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservative government. In Quebec, François Legault’s CAQ government has also pre-emptively used the clause on its controversial language and culture bills C-21 and C-96 during its time in office. While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (Papineau, Que), has been largely silent on the Legault government’s use of Sec. 33 in this way, he issued a sharp rebuke to Ford over his government’s most recent preemptive use of the notwithstanding clause. “Using the notwithstanding clause to suspend workers’ rights is wrong,” Trudeau told reporters on Nov. 1, a message he reiterated to Ford in a Nov. 2 telephone call. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the Ford government’s recent use of the clause. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade The Ford government had included the notwithstanding clause in Bill 28, its back-to-work legislation to prevent thousands of Ontario education workers represented by CUPE from going on strike. The bill passed the legislature on Nov. 2. Still, CUPE members walked off the job for two days in defiance of the law before the Ford government reversed its position in response to public backlash and revoked the legislation containing Sec. 33. Trudeau and his Justice Minister David Lametti’s (LaSalle—Émard—Verdun, Que.) condemnations of the use of the clause sparked suggestions the federal government may want to seek a Supreme Court reference on the pre-emptive use of the clause. Experts consulted by The Hill Times noted it is not apparent what the Supreme Court would find in such a case Campbellian_ THIS would be a huge mistake! There should be a monetary penalty and other serious measures implemented for taking away peoples rights without appeal!!! Campbellian_ ...it's about 'Respect'...Mr. Ford exhibits none...

Ontario education minister sheds light on tentative CUPE dealEducation Minister Stephen Lecce says that a tentative agreement reached with CUPE over the weekend will provide the union’s lowest paid members with a 'significant pay increase' that equals out to about 4.2 per cent annually.
