Speaking to a crowd of supporters at his CanadInns Polo Park election night headquarters, newly re-elected Premier of Manitoba Brian Pallister called the Progressive Conservatives’ victory a step forward for the province.

“Forward to balanced budgets, forward to better care and sooner,” he said.

“Forward to new schools for our children and grandchildren, forward to a stronger economy for all of us and forward to more affordability for families …with lower taxes and more money right on the kitchen tables of Manitoba families.”

Manitoba NDP leader Wab Kinew said in a speech to supporters that he called his Progressive Conservative opponent Brian Pallister to concede the election, but he still had a positive attitude about the election’s results.

“I don’t think we were defeated tonight,” said Kinew.

“I think Manitobans sent a very, very strong message, and the seats that we took back made it very clear that Manitobans want us, the New Democrats, to not only be the conscience of Manitoba, not only to be the opposition of Manitoba, but to be the progressive voice for Manitoba.”

Meanwhile, the Wolseley riding went to the NDP once again.

Despite hopes by Green Party supporters that it might be their first-ever win, Green candidate David Nickarz was defeated by the NDP’s Lisa Naylor.

Manitoba Liberal leader Dougald Lamont was re-elected in St. Boniface, joining fellow Liberals Dr. Jon Gerrard (River Heights) and Cindy Lamoureux (Tyndall Park). However, the Liberals lost official party status, losing a seat in northern Manitoba.

Gerrard has represented the area since 1999 and is the former leader of the Manitoba Liberals.

“It’s just great to be re-elected. It’s phenomenal to be a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba and to be able to make a contribution,” he said.

“This is 20 years, and this will be the sixth election that I’ve won, so I’m really thankful to the voters in River Heights.”

Former Progressive Conservative MLA Cliff Graydon was defeated in the new Borderland riding.

Graydon was running as an independent candidate in this election, after being expelled from the PC caucus after allegations of sexual harassment. He was defeated in 2019 by PC candidate Josh Guenter.

The new riding of Union Station has elected its first MLA – NDP candidate Uzoma Asagwara. It was created from the riding formerly known as Logan.

Prior to the election call, Pallister and the Progressive Conservatives held a majority in the Manitoba Legislature, with 38 of the 57 seats to the opposition NDP’s 12.

Tuesday’s election followed a 29-day campaign kicked off Aug. 12 when Pallister triggered an election more than a year ahead of schedule.

Advanced voting numbers for 2019 were up over the previous provincial election, with almost 113,000 voters making their choice before Election Day, according to Elections Manitoba.

Manitoba NDP in celebratory mood despite another electoral defeat – CBC.ca

September 10th, 2019

Wab Kinew has passed his first electoral test as leader of the Manitoba NDP, as CBC News has projected he will win his seat in Fort Rouge and the party will gain seats this election.

The Opposition party is projected to win 18 seats in Manitoba’s 57-seat legislature — four more than they won in 2016.

And New Democrats were celebrating Tuesday night.

The Metropolitan Theatre in Winnipeg exploded in cheers as Kinew took the stage Tuesday night. Voters, he said, made it clear that “they want us to be the conscience of Manitoba.”

“I don’t think we were defeated tonight,” he told the crowd. “And the sign that many Manitobans agree are all the New Democrat MLAs elected today.”

Spirits were high as the party faithful celebrated several gains: the party won back St. Vital, unseating incumbent cabinet minister Colleen Mayer, regained seats in northern Manitoba and staved off a possible defeat by the Green Party in Wolseley.

“We increased our seat count, we took out a cabinet minister. This was a very good night,” Kinew said following his speech.

NDP Leader Wab Kinew speaks to supporters on Tuesday night:

Wab Kinew has passed his first electoral test as leader of the Manitoba NDP, as CBC News has projected he will win his seat in Fort Rouge and early results suggest the party is poised to gain seats this election. 7:46

There were, however, losses for the party, with longtime NDP MLA Ted Marcelino being unseated by Liberal candidate Cindy Lamoureux in Tyndall Park.

“I love Ted. He gave so much to this campaign and you are pointing out one outcome, but Ted probably won us three or four other seats,” Kinew said when asked about the loss.

“I feel energized, enthused and proud,” said Kinew, who ran against Green Party Leader James Beddome and four other candidates in Fort Rouge, a seat he first won in 2016.

Kinew said he has no plans to step down as party leader, and expects to lead the NDP in the next election.

In addition to Fort Rouge, the NDP are projected to win several other seats previously held by the party, including Nahanni Fontaine’s St. Johns  seat and Amanda Lathlin’s seat in The Pas-Kameesak.

The mood in the room Tuesday got a boost when the NDP was projected to win St. Vital, with candidate Jamie Moses projected to defeat incumbent cabinet minister Colleen Mayer. The party had pinned a lot of hopes and resources into Moses being successful after his second stab at the seat. 

“What we are seeing is positive energy,” Nahanni Fontaine said at The Met Tuesday evening. “We have made history tonight.”

Moses will make history, along with the Union Station NDP candidate Uzoma Asagwara, as the first black MLAs elected to the Manitoba Legislature, according to CBC News projections. Tory candidate Audrey Gordon is also projected to win in Southdale, bringing the total number of black MLAs elected to three.

“It is representation that is needed in our province,” Kinew said.

NDP campaign co-chair Bea Bruske also said St. James is projected to swing back to the NDP after being lost to the PCs in 2016. Diljeet Brar is the projected winner in Burrows, a seat previously held by the Manitoba Liberals.

Northern Manitoba has also returned to the NDP fold, with wins projected in Flin Flon, Thompson, Keewatinook and The Pas-Kameesak.

The party was shocked by losing Keewatinook to the Liberals and Thompson to the PCs in 2016, said Chris Adams, a political scientist at St. Paul’s College at the University of Manitoba.

“That northern pillar is back under the wings” of the NDP, he said.

“We have the centre-left in this campaign fragmented across three parties.… [The] NDP should feel happy about how they came out tonight.”

11 new NDP MLAs

Eleven new New Democrat MLAs were elected Tuesday night, meaning the Opposition party will now have more rookie MLAs than incumbents.

The Opposition NDP went into the 2019 election with 12 seats — two less than they held after the 2016 election. 

They lost St. Boniface to the Manitoba Liberals in a 2018 byelection after former leader Greg Selinger resigned his seat. Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont is projected to hold onto that seat for his party.

The Maples seat was lost in 2017 after Mohinder Saran was kicked out of the NDP caucus following sexual harassment allegations. 

The NDP lost power after 17 years in government in 2016, when Brian Pallister’s PCs won a historic 40-seat majority.

Throughout this year’s 29-day election campaign, the NDP focused on health care as its main issue and rarely veered from leader Wab Kinew’s message that the NDP would reverse health care changes made under Pallister’s government.

Man dies after being tased by police in Mississauga, SIU investigating – CityNews

September 10th, 2019

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) is investigating the situation surrounding the death of a 34-year-old man after police attended a disturbance call in Mississauga on Tuesday night.

Peel Regional Police officers were called to a residence near Morningstar and Cambrett drives around 9 p.m.

Police said officers had an interaction with a person at the home. The SIU said the interaction involved the use of a conducted energy weapon.

According to the SIU, the man went vital signs absent and was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A witness, who lives in the area and knew the man involved, told CityNews he saw police arrive at the home that evening.

“Cops showed up yelling ‘open up the door’,” he explained. “The door opened. Guns were drawn, Tasers were drawn. They tased the kid, doors were shut. [They] dragged him outside the front door and next thing you know they’re pumping his stomach.”

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.

Ottawa blocks RCMP on SNC-Lavalin inquiry – The Globe and Mail

September 10th, 2019

The RCMP has been looking into potential obstruction of justice in the handling of the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., but its examination has been stymied by the federal government’s refusal to lift cabinet confidentiality for all witnesses, The Globe and Mail has learned.

This means individuals involved in the matter cannot discuss events or share documents with police that have not been exempted from the rule of cabinet confidentiality, according to sources, who The Globe agreed not to identify so they could discuss the RCMP inquiries.

In Canada, the principle of cabinet confidentiality is intended to allow ministers to debate decisions freely in private. As a result, discussions involving cabinet matters must be kept secret unless a waiver is granted. In the SNC matter, the Liberals say that the Clerk of the Privy Council, who heads the bureaucratic agency that serves the Prime Minister’s Office, made the decision not to offer a broad waiver to either the RCMP or to the Ethics Commissioner, and that the PMO played no role.

A source who was recently interviewed by the RCMP told The Globe that investigators indicated they are looking into possible obstruction of justice. The Criminal Code says obstruction of justice occurs when an effort is made to “obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice in a judicial proceeding.”

The national police force will pause the operation because of the coming election campaign. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to go to Rideau Hall Wednesday to ask the Governor-General to dissolve Parliament and call the vote for Oct. 21, and the RCMP has a policy to suspend politically sensitive operations during campaigns.

Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod said the decision not to offer a broader waiver for the RCMP “was made solely by the Clerk of the Privy Council as guardian of cabinet confidences.” Mr. Trudeau’s director of communications, Cameron Ahmad, said the PMO was not involved in the decision.

Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion faced the same obstacle as the RCMP in his investigation into the SNC-Lavalin affair earlier this year, stating in his final report that nine witnesses were unable to provide full testimony because government allowed only a limited waiver on cabinet secrecy.

Mr. Dion found that Mr. Trudeau breached the Conflict of Interest Act. His report said the Prime Minister and senior federal officials improperly pressed Jody Wilson-Raybould when she was justice minister and attorney-general to order the director of public prosecutions to settle bribery and fraud charges against SNC-Lavalin without a trial.

The Department of Justice confirmed Tuesday that the RCMP received “the same access to cabinet confidences and privileged information” as the Ethics Commissioner and the justice committee of the House.

SNC-Lavalin affair began with 2016 meeting between Trudeau, company

An order in council dated Feb. 25 offered a waiver to Ms. Wilson-Raybould and “any persons who directly participated in discussions with her” about the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin during her time as attorney-general. She was moved to Veterans Affairs on Jan. 14. The waiver allowed Ms. Wilson-Raybould to talk to the justice committee and the Ethics Commissioner, but did not extend further.

The Ethics Commissioner’s report said a number of discussions between members of the PMO, ministerial staffers and officials at SNC-Lavalin were conducted without Ms. Wilson-Raybould’s knowledge, and therefore were not covered by the waiver. The former minister is running as an Independent in the riding of Vancouver-Granville.

The RCMP has not officially launched a criminal investigation. The police force has said it is “examining this matter carefully with all available information.” The examination is in the hands of the RCMP’s national division, which is in charge of sensitive cases.

Last month, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said “significant grounds” existed for an investigation into whether Mr. Trudeau’s action constituted obstructing justice.

Former RCMP commissioner Bob Paulson, who retired in 2017, said it will be difficult for the Mounties to complete their examination unless the government waives cabinet confidentiality entirely.

“The government is entitled to assert privilege …” Mr. Paulson said in an interview. “If [the RCMP] were serious enough, they could probably get a search warrant, but that would probably be shot down by the courts. The privilege is pretty strong at the cabinet level. I have not had an experience where we succeeded in getting cabinet documents that the government didn’t want us to have.”

He added: “In my experience, particularly, cabinet privilege is overasserted and I guess more widely applied than it deserved.”

Mr. Paulson, who said he has no information on the RCMP probe, said it makes sense that the Mounties would focus on obstruction of justice.

“It strikes me there is sufficient information to be pursued,” he said. “One need to only read the section [of the Criminal Code] on the elements of the offence and to put that against what the public record is and I think you have something that needs to be explored.”

Mr. Paulson said the RCMP brought in new rules after an investigation came to light during the 2005-06 election campaign that may have contributed to the defeat of the Liberal government of Paul Martin. During the campaign, the RCMP sent a letter to the NDP saying it would conduct a criminal probe into allegations that Liberals leaked information to the financial markets on how they intended to handle the taxation of income trusts.

The force later announced that it would avoid discussing criminal investigations during election campaigns.

“We have a sensitive investigation policy that addresses this very thing. If the writ is dropped and particularly during the writ period – unless there is some compelling public reason to keep investigating – they are not going to keep investigating. Certainly if they are, they would be wise to just shut up about it,” Mr. Paulson said.

The RCMP started looking into the SNC-Lavalin issue after The Globe revealed on Feb. 7 that officials in the PMO put pressure on Ms. Wilson-Raybould to order prosecutors to negotiate a deferred prosecution agreement in the case, which would avoid a trial in exchange for a financial settlement.

Story continues below advertisement

In his report, Mr. Dion said he had been hampered from conducting a full investigation because nine witnesses were prevented from sharing information they felt was relevant. “In the present examination, I have gathered sufficient factual information to properly determine the matter on its merits,” he wrote. “Because of my inability to access all cabinet confidences related to the matter, I must, however, report that I was unable to fully discharge the investigatory duties conferred upon me by the [Conflict of Interest] Act.”

These nine people, whom he did not identify, told him revealing this information would breach cabinet confidentiality. The Privy Council rejected Mr. Dion’s request for a waiver.

A lawyer for Mr. Trudeau told Mr. Dion the Prime Minister played no role in Privy Council Clerk Ian Shugart’s decision to deny the request.

Still, Mr. Trudeau has publicly supported the decision. “The decision by the Privy Council to not further extend into less relevant or non-relevant elements of cabinet confidentiality or solicitor-client privilege is an important one that maintains the integrity of our institutions and our capacity to function as a government without setting troublesome or worrisome precedents,” he said last month.

Mr. Paulson said RCMP investigators are entitled to talk to any witnesses, but they can’t compel people to talk to them if the government refused to waive cabinet confidentiality.

“It is up to the people to either assert privilege or decline to talk to us. My philosophy has been to be aggressive in pursuing the people who had information and then having them assert whatever reason they had not to talk to us,” he said. “The witnesses generally talk to police unless they were protecting privilege.”
