Inquiry document says Bergen, PM talked about setting ‘bad precedent’ with convoy


Inquiry document says Bergen, PM talked about setting ‘bad precedent’ with convoyOTTAWA — Notes taken during a conversation between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former interim Conservative leader Candice Bergen shed more light on their discussion about reaching out to "Freedom Convoy" protesters. Trudeau and Bergen spoke on her first day as the interim Opposition leader after the Conservative caucus ousted former leader Erin O'Toole. The inquiry previously learned that one of Trudeau's aides suggested Bergen privately acknowledged there were "significant concerns" around engaging with protesters and "setting a bad precedent" during the call. "The interpretation and semantics surrounding a readout of a private conversation between myself and the prime minister is not the issue here. The issue is the unjustified invocation of the Emergencies Act by a prime minister who is still acting like a coward by manipulating, misleading and twisting the truth.
