Revue Politique

February 1, 2018

New allegations rock Parliament Hill, but, this time, it hits the NDP. MP Erin Weir has lost his critic role pending an independent investigation, but remains a caucus member. The following MPs discuss how to keep the balance between protecting victims and respecting the principle of presumption of innocence of persons against whom allegations have been made: Steve MacKinnon (Liberal Party), Alupa Clarke (Conservative Party), Anne Minh-Thu Quach (NDP), and Gabriel Ste-Marie (Bloc Québécois).

Reporters Manon Cornellier (Le Devoir) and Joël-Denis Bellavance (La Presse) analyze the week’s major issues.
