3:11 P.M. Those repulsive young , healthy white males !!! …

Just to demonstrate that England , like Canada , is losing the battle against navigating the turbulent vortex in the Crane Ocean …

Employers need to reserve places on apprenticeship schemes for young women , disabled people and ethnic minorities to create a more level playing field , the country’s equality body has said.

The government has pledged to create 3 million apprenticeships in England by next year. But almost 90% of apprentices aged 16-24 are white , compared with 82% of the population.

But the commission warns that too many companies “ are hesitant about using positive action because they’re worried about inadvertently discriminating against others ”. Last week Cheshire police were found guilty of discriminating against a white , heterosexual 25-year-old man because it used positive action in an unlawful way. Matthew Furlong , 25 , applied to join the service in 2017 but lost out to other candidates. An employment tribunal found Furlong had been discriminated against on the basis of his sexual orientation ( NORMAL ! … ) , race ( ANGLO SAXON WHITE ! … In ENGLAND no less ! … Whooda thunk ?! … ) and sex ( MALE ).

Read those last two sentences again … Then return to my next statement …

In other words , no job for you … You’re a nasty , white , male in the prime of your life who is …NORMAL !!! … BLIMEY !!! …

MY GOD !!! … We’ve got far too much of that !!! …

The article then goes on citing specific numbers , that could only be attained thru millions of quid worth of endless ‘ study ‘ …

In England , women made up only 5% of people starting apprenticeship in construction , planning and the built environment …

I would say there are very few women that even consider construction  … As having been involved with that , at various points of my life , construction is … Wait for … Physically demanding … The few that want to , thru no ‘ short coming being implied here , just biologically aren’t equipped physically to perform those duties …

In contrast , women were over-represented in apprenticeships in poorly paid sectors , such as hairdressing and early-years care …

Sorry ladies , ya can’t expect ‘ pay equity ‘ between brushing , snipping and cutting each others’ locks , while having a good natter … To building multi-story , concrete , brick and steel buildings …

A young female apprentice engineer on the car factory production line.Now if this young lady is adept at this job … I’m all for it … Providing that she out performs , or at least matches the output and efficiency of her position of any other candidates … Male , female , black , white …pink polka dots  … I don’t give a shit …

They made up 94% of all apprenticeship starts in child development and wellness being in England last year …

OH MY GOD !!! … Potential mothers ?!!! … 94 % of the child care industry ?!!! … How can this be ? … But wait … Where all the men complaining ? … This particular ‘ industry ‘ simply isn’t geared to support high wages , nor is it justified to expect more …

The commission said ignorance of the law was holding back some employers in opening up apprenticeships to minorities …

I always pressed the point that , in the case of ‘ immigrant minorities ‘, it is no longer generations past prejudices , but the ‘ communication problem ‘ that is the key issue here … All types of work that involve group effort begin with the important facet of being able to communicate … Also , many lack the education system that industrial countries take for granted …

I’ll clarify at this point that even our Education systems are in a woeful decline due to political correctness and overly ‘ progressive ‘ concepts …

I find , again absent of any malice , prejudice or bigotry , many immigrants lack even a reasonable amount of capability of learning a skill. From my investigations , their country of origin bears the responsibility of neglecting that important part of their society … Quite a few do however , and it obviously is greatly assisted by the fact that they diligently learned how to communicate in their ‘ new ‘ country’s language …

Bottom line for me is this  ; If I have two candidates for a position in my company that are evenly matched in skill and capability … The deciding factor will be level of communication skills … If the job requires a certain amount of physical strength … A  close second is choosing the one most likely to endure the labour who gets my nod …

12:45 P.M. Accusing no one … Andrew MacDougall is simply stating what should ‘ properly ‘ be done …

Andy reports , and offers views , for Maclean’s Magazine …

It’s another day , and another defence for the Liberals on SNC-Lavalin.

For those of you who are algorithmically shielded from bad Liberal news , we’ve now moved from “ false ” after the story broke weeks ago to “ yeah , well , you might think 11 people having multiple meetings or phone calls with the non-partisan attorney general or her staff over four months is pressure ” after Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimony.

Struggling to draw a line ,any line , under the controversy , Trudeau and the Liberals are now pushing respect for the ethics commissioner and the House of Commons standing committee on justice and human rights like it’s a new religion.

( As an aside : imagine how poorly things have to be going to point to an office that has already found you guilty of breaking the law once , over the Aga Khan vacation ) …

Only they’re not letting anyone preach.

Will the justice committee be hearing from Trudeau ?… No … How about Katie Telford ?… No … Bill Morneau ?… No … Ben Chin ?… No … Mathieu Bouchard ?… No … Elder Marques ?… No … Jessica Prince ?… No … Amy Archer ?… Sadly, she’s a ‘ no ’ too … 

You’ll note the above list doesn’t include Gerry Butts , the Prime Minister’s ( former ? ) right-hand man , who yesterday tweeted out a letter to justice committee chair Anthony Housefather requesting an appearance. Butts will now appear on March 6 , pending the sorting of some legal advice.

But why does Butts … Who people jokingly ( ? ) call Prime Minister Butts … Get to appear , but not any of the other people accused of inappropriate behaviour in Wilson-Raybould’s testimony ? If you were trying to prove to Canadians you weren’t interested in getting at the truth , this would be a good way of doing it.

Not that questioning Butts is without value.

We still , for example , don’t know why Butts suddenly quit his post on Feb. 18. There didn’t appear to be anything lethal about his conduct in the public domain to that point. Indeed , his resignation letter went out of its way to admit no fault , although Wilson-Raybould’s testimony later contradicted his take. After being warned by Jessica Prince , Wilson-Raybould’s chief of staff , that his Dec. 18 intervention on SNC was “ interference ” , the former attorney general has Butts allegedly replying : “ Jess , there is no solution here that doesn’t involve some interference ” … Did he say that ? And what does it mean ( other than the obvious ) ?…

Butts will surely rebut that point , but it would also be good to hear him on any conversations surrounding Wilson-Raybould’s meeting with Trudeau the day ahead of her resignation from cabinet ( presuming he was there ). This is increasingly looking like an area that MPs on the committee must explore.

The circumstances surrounding her resignation certainly appear important to Wilson-Raybould. Once Trudeau signed the order-in-council allowing her to testify , Wilson-Raybould quickly issued a letter pointing out it didn’t release her to speak about the events after her shuffle to veterans affairs. Why didn’t Trudeau include that period ? And what makes it so important to Wilson-Raybould ? We don’t know.

From committee testimony and/or the media , we do know Wilson-Raybould was shuffled from Justice a few short weeks after her last conversations on SNC with Butts , Katie Telford and Michael Wernick , the clerk of the privy council , who is alleged to have told Wilson-Raybould , “ I think [ Trudeau ] is gonna find a way to get it done one way or another. So , he is in that kinda mood and I wanted you to be aware of that ”…

Well , getting rid of a recalcitrant attorney general is certainly a way to “ get it done” isn’t it ?…

And it doesn’t take much of a conspiracy theorist to equate the final Dec. 19 ‘ no ’ with the subsequent shuffle , as Wilson-Raybould herself did , despite Trudeau apparently telling her it had nothing to do with it.

That impression probably didn’t last long. Especially as Wilson-Raybould later found out , her deputy minister at Justice , Nathalie Drouin , had been told by Wernick to prepare her successor , David Lametti , for a conversation with Trudeau on SNC. Reporting now also confirms Lametti met with senior PMO staff at the January cabinet retreat to discuss SNC. It hardly sounds like the centre was happy with the status quo.

Was Wilson-Raybould , as veterans affairs minister , aware her oft-challenged decision on SNC was about to be revisited and reversed ? Is that why the first Globe story appeared ? Until Wilson-Raybould is granted permission to speak about that period of time , we won’t know. ( But I suspect another exclusive might soon appear in the Globe and Mail should Trudeau choose to keep her under wraps )…

What light can Butts shine on this period ? What light could Telford ? Until they both speak … Until they all speak … Nothing we’ve yet heard can be placed in its proper context. Until they all speak it looks like a cover-up , and not trust in a transparent process.

It’s simply not good enough for Trudeau to blather on about jobs and dismiss Wilson-Raybould’s “ characterization ” without rounding out the picture himself. It’s only a fraction of the story ; she has played only the cards he’s allowed her to play.

It’s time for Trudeau to let everyone put their cards on the table.

The justice committee should begin by inviting everyone named in Wilson-Raybould’s testimony. And then they should invite the former attorney general back to speak freely about her time at veterans affairs and her resignation from that portfolio.

Until Trudeau does that , anything that comes out of his mouth is a PR exercise meant to obscure the truth.

I think that is a fair and comprehensive argument put forth by Andrew MacDougall , the writer of this article …

6:18 A.M. Lametti bullshits that he didn’t know of Jody’s decision …

Attorney General David Lametti says he didn’t know that his predecessor , Jody Wilson-Raybould, had already made a decision not to cut SNC-Lavalin a deal to avoid criminal trial when he took over the post and began learning about the matter before him.

“ I had not ” Lametti when asked if he had known about the decision in an interview airing Sunday with The West Block‘s Mercedes Stephenson.

“ I was a Montreal MP , as I’ve said , so I was generally aware of the file but I didn’t have any specific knowledge … I mean,  I had the knowledge that you and I both had , reading the newspapers and seeing what’s out on the media ”…

Let’s see … A member of parliament from … KBec ! … Would surely be aware of an upcoming and very ‘ critical ‘ election … Would most certainly know of a huge corporate entity … From … KBec … Especially one that has been in the news concerning , shall we say , ‘ unscrupulous business practices ‘ and largesse … And this person is obviously within close proximity to the ‘ inner circle ‘ of the government , he’d have to be , to be chosen for the very high , and more so critical at this juncture , cabinet position of Justice Minister ! …

He was also mum on whether knowing that would keep him from reversing the decision.

“ At that point , I didn’t know all the facts … At this point , I still don’t know all the facts … So it’s a hypothetical question that I can’t answer ” he said.

Ass Covering 101 …

This is Lametti positioning himself , as per instructions from the PMO , as a ‘ fresh , unprejudiced ‘ viewpoint to the situation … Let’s go back to Mikey’s ‘ wink , wink ‘ statement to Wilson-Raybould during his constant grilling while offering ‘ perks ‘ of ‘ goods press ‘ , providing she do things THEIR way …

Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick will likely face questions over the description of a Dec. 19, 2018 , conversation he had with Wilson-Raybould , in which he allegedly told her that her decision not to intervene to offer a deal to SNC-Lavalin might not matter.

“ I think he is going to find a way to get it done , one way or another ” Wilson-Raybould quoted Wernick as saying of the prime minister. “ So he is in that kind of mood ”.

So basically , this Lametti schmuck will get the same treatment … ” Do it OUR way or you’ll be out of the job just as fast as you were parachuted into it “…

So I figure it’s pretty much gonna go this way …

LamettiThanks

He certainly can’t play coy about ‘ not being aware ‘ of the fate of his predecessor should he too choose to perform his new job with some actual integrity and defy the political whims of his boss and the PMO …
