Dear #JustinJournos: Splitting the AG/Justice roles might have addressed the Shawcross issue, but would not have changed the fact that PM @JustinTrudeau and his officials contravened the Conflict of Interest Act #cdnpoli.

Reminder: while the twitter experts are espousing their years of intimate experience with the Shawcross doctrine and the sanctity of prosecutorial independence ANDREW SCHEER WANTS MORE GUNS IN CANADA - a subject with slightly higher implications. #cdnpoli.

@ElizabethMay @Puglaas It is AG JWR that failed to: ➡️provide adequate advice to PM/Cab/Govt ➡️resign if Shawcross issue ➡️exercise her duties competently & on timely basis on many issues eg judicial appts, legislation & Asoun ➡️disclose taping to Clerk ➡️maintain confidence of PM/caucus thru leaks.

@DuaneBratt @DianeMariePosts “Demoted” is in the eye of the beholder, when it’s the same salary and benefits. Shawcross says if an AG feels unduly pressured, they shld step away. She didn’t..

@DuaneBratt @DianeMariePosts Pressure? If she was feeling that pressured, I understand she would have been obligated to step down as per Shawcross. Instead, JWR accepted a new portfolio, workd there for a few weeks, then decided for whatever reason to try to toss a PM under the bus. Haven’t ignored, just meh.

Probably the only time we will ever see the Shawcross Principle discussed/debated by the media and in casual conversations..

@Puglaas Trudeau has been telling us that he was fully cooperating with the Commissioner, & that he did nothing wrong. However, the Ethics Commissioner claimed Trudeau limited witness testimony & document production; he was clear that Trudeau breached the law & the Shawcross principle..

@kinsellawarren The Shawcross Doctrine has been in place since is the first time a PM of any party has ignored it..

@ChristopherTodd @kinsellawarren The Conflict of Interest Act (and the constitution/Shawcross principle)..

Par 326: Shawcross Doctrine not respected: Mr. Trudeau & several witnesses testified they believed that the Shawcross Doctrine allowed for debate between AG & Cabinet colleagues. My reading of the doctrine and the governing jurisprudence have led me to a different conclusion..

18/ pa334: the Shawcross doctrine in Cdn law ...cannot be ignored. It is improper ...to use political interests 2 attempt 2 influence an AG in the context of an ongoing criminal prosecution since it runs counter 2 the principle of prosecutorial independence and the rule of law..

Just a reminder Ryan Shawcross buss his leg 😂😂😂😂😂.

Shawcross was a red herring; conflict of interest is the issue and the law that was broken #cdnpoli.

@ThatsMrNeil You are reiterating here what Shawcross himself , Ethics Comm faulted PMJT under Conflict of Interest Act(?) for violating Shawcross Principle which is not in any way law but only a guiding principle from a British AG that pre-dates DPA law. DPA law changed everything.

President Nixon left office over improper interference with the AG Ethics commissioner: @JustinTrudeau actions were improper since they were contrary to the Shawcross doctrine and the principles of prosecutorial independence and the rule of law..

Dear #JustinJournos: Splitting the AG/Justice roles might have addressed the Shawcross issue, but would not have changed the fact that PM @JustinTrudeau and his officials contravened the Conflict of Interest Act #cdnpoli.

What is the Shawcross Principle, the judicial doctrine that the ethics commissioner said Trudeau breached?.

@aballinga The headline is misleading. The Ethics Commissioner found that the PM contravened federal legislation and violated the Shawcross doctrine (of prosecutorial independence). The former is a breach of law; the latter is a serious breach of the rule of law..

@DrJacobsRad Ethics violations strike #2!! Violations: Section 9 Conflict of Interest Act, Shawcross doctrine on judicial interference, and deliberate obstruction of justice (limited/restricted justice committee hearings) 🤬@justintrudeau #TrudeauMustGo.

@JKennethY yet the question says Shawcross was encroached, so why did JWR not invoke it?.

These actions were found to improperly advance a private interest, the second step of the test, and therefore violated s. 9. The economic impact on jobs argument was rejected on the evidence. Use of partisan political considerations (Shawcross doctrine) was clearly improper..

proceedings; and in the study of several important legal and constitutional principles central to our system of government, Mr. Trudeau acted contrary to the Shawcross doctrine and the principle of prosecutorial independence when he and senior officials under his.

“Trudeau acted contrary to the Shawcross doctrine and the principle of prosecutorial independence when he and senior officials under his direction put forward partisan political considerations to the Attorney General in relation to a criminal prosecution”.

Key to Ethics commissioner found that PM Trudeau contravened the Shawcross doctrine, the principles of prosecutorial independence, AND the rule of law. Hard to overstate this..

Not only did @Puglaas lack the courage to bring her concerns directly to the PM, she failed to act in accordance with the Shawcross Principle. Instead, she unleashed her own internal vendetta. Expulsion from caucus was the predictable outcome. Always the victim..

Trudeau violated Conflict of Interest laws again. This time on SNC. “The actions that sought to further these interests were improper since they were contrary to the Shawcross doctrine and the principles of prosecutorial independence and the rule of law..
