I have a lot of respect for Sinclair

I have a lot of respect for Sinclair (he was the judge assigned to the baby deaths inquest that my mom was involved in and I actually dated a relation of his years ago).  But he's out to lunch here.  Comes across very biased.  Because I dont think his opinion would be the same if these instances were about Pallister.

The desire to sweep this stuff under the rug is a major issue in the Aboriginal community and its sad to see someone of Sinclair's status supporting that.  The changed man routine is all fine and dandy but Wab is lying TODAY.  He also lied in his book which just came out a couple of years ago.  In fact, he heavly implied in his book that several of his relationships ended due to "arguing", "fighting" and his "anger". 

Wab could be Premier of Manitoba.  This is all fair game because of his own deeds and words.  This poor woman is being re-victimized and Wab calling her a liar and the NDP, the party that supports women endorsing that position is deplorable.

So I read that the mayor is supporting Wab....   I'm hoping folks around here are not planning to vote him back in again next time around.  

Brian Bowman needs to spend less time opining on provincial politics and more time working as a damned mayor.

Ok Trump..

 

maybe don't leave skeletons in your closet?  Maybe don't lie about how you beat down a cabbie in your "tell all" book?  Maybe be honest about how you used to be a woman beater??

 

the more this carries on, the more this looks worse and worse for wab and the NDP.   I get the reasons why that they are pushing him so hard to be the next young, hip NDP leader but I think they didn't vet their choice wisely at all..

Yup.  beating a woman...and Wab has a long list of issues so this isnt a "mistake", meaning he has no option but to say "I've changed"...is always deplorable.  He threatened to kill her actually. 

But if he really was a changed man, he would hold a major presser, admit his wrong doing 100%, apologize profusely and demand everyone leave the victim alone.  His continued statements that she is lying is encouraging his supporters to pursue her and its sickening.  I've seen people online supporting her being shouted down as racists.   Which seems to be the NDP's plan here.  Anyone critical of Wab or the party are racists. 

Wab and the NDP's behavior here is re-victimization 101.

How do you figure Gord looks bad?  What looks bad is how the mainstream media ignored it until the "citizen journalist" blog types pushed the issues.  Wab saying his victim is a liar makes it relevant.  Wab downplaying (or out and out lying) about the assault on a cabbie makes it relevant.  Wab's demands for other public servants to step down for personal issues makes his own relevant. 

Gord seems to be hounding her pretty aggressively. I think she just wanted to say her piece, have her side of the story heard, and move on. I have no problem with Wab being put under the microscope, but she went into hiding for a reason...

Don't seem to recall Murray calling the media dogging Pallister on his time in Costa Rica a witch hunt. They made a way bigger deal out of that than they are with Wab, even though going on vacation pales in comparison to lying about multiple assaults.

True.  But being in hiding and Gord knowing where she is implies he'd not someone she's hiding from.  He seems sensitive to her plight as he indicated he felt she might choose not to answer.  And in fact, when he returned for a follow up, she didnt.

Normally, in a case like this, this would result in overwhelming support for the victim to an extent where she might actually gain closure or some level of healing.  At the very least, support.  The fact she is being re-victimized by the NDP part and her attacker and his supporters is beyond despicable.

If it was anyone else, the calls for his resignation would be overwhelming.
