Rouleau ruling to brief Cabinet before release to the public

You read it right.

Just when you thought we had some semblance of a democratic and transparent process distracting us from the suspicion we don't have good governance, in comes this.

The Rouleau commission is slated to be released on February 20. However, two weeks before on February 6, Trudeau and his Cabinet will have access to its findings.

Let that sink in.

Still, think this is a democracy?

I shouldn't have to tell you why this is bad.

The poor optics is the least of our concerns.

The problem here is you're giving the defence - which is what the government is in this case - a chance to spin the ruling in its favor. It will then work on its mutts and hacks in the media to convey its propaganda to the population.

A largely apathetic population that either don't care or even knew there was a public hearing into the use of the emergencies act.

So it should be very easy for the government to manipulate.

The other potentially troubling aspect is that they can attempt to influence or pressure the commissioner to change some or all of its rulings. In the interest of 'democracy' and 'population health' of course.

And if there's one thing we've learned about the Liberals, they're all about petty authoritarian politics.

Would not surprise me if staffers go in and defend the Queen. Judging by their testimonies at the inquiry, this is almost a given.

There you have it.

It's all banana republics and garbage. 

Canada isn't a country.

It's a club.
