You don't want to say anything that might incriminate you if you don't have to though. What's the say - what you say can and will be used or held agains't you. He's being coy and I guess does have the right to do so.

Maybe A. But I think he should just say the number and move on.

"I've met with them 20 times. And our conversations are private. If I'm in breach of Ethics that will no doubt become public as is protocol." or whatever. Done. Just all so unnecessary politics.

A number of high-profile attendees later got lucrative government approvals. For example, Trudeau attended a fundraiser at the mansion of multimillionaire Miaofei Pan on Nov. 7 in Vanouver where Pan urged the prime minister to allow Chinese investment in seniors’ care. Later that month Anbang Insurance Group bought a majority stake in Vancouver-based seniors’ care company Retirement Concepts in a deal reported to have exceeded $1 billion.


Pathetic.

Yeah, the way the world often works I guess regardless who is in power. :?

Nope. Apparently, he's trying to stay there in the shadows where no one can see what he's actually doing.

Really, jamie is right in that all Trudeau has to do is acknowledge that he's met X number of times (or even simply 'several' times), that he's fully cooperated, and that any violations will be decided on and made public by the commission.

Instead, he gives us deflecting and circumlocution.

"The lamentable retirement of Rona Ambrose." That phrase encapsulates the Conservative leadership's biggest problem.

A lot of Canadians just have a love affair with Trudeau so I really don't think it matters who the Conservatives choose as leader, going to be tough to beat pretty-boy with those looks and appearance.

We'll have to wait and see what all the investigations into his possible breaches in ethics find. That could open the door for the right leadership candidate from another party.

....the smart move for the cons would be to nominate a woman...the women of the country are then forced to vote either for the nice hair guy or their own gender...sorry this sounds animal-simplistic and chauvinist, but that is what modern day politics are coming down to...

...so Kellie Leitch or Lisa Raitt......[/screechingrecordsound]

...well, it was an interesting idea while it lasted...

...this guy sorta scares me:

...because of this:

"Growing up he faced a lot of bulling [sic] and often felt like he did not belong which motivated him to take up the cause of 'incredibly unfair' to the others like him"

...so basically revenge...
