Re: “Wilson-Raybould doesn’t trust the prime minister and the feeling is mutual,” (The Hill Times, March 4, p. 9). To an “unschooled ear,” I found former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimony to be thorough, truthful, and convincing, leaving little to the imagination. She basically corroborated, enhanced and, to some extent, refuted the earlier testimony of the clerk of the Privy Council. Ms. Copps indicates that Ms. Wilson-Raybould had a “duty to consult caucus and cabinet colleagues” and is “duty-bound to consider their opinions.” Based on the Shawcross doctrine, she had no such “duty” and was not even obliged to consult with any of her colleagues. It was her decision to make and she made it. And once she made the decision, the PM and his staff were meddling in her responsibilities as attorney general of Canada. And what is more glaring in this case, is that even after she told the PM to back off, he and his colleagues persisted in attempting to get her to revoke her decision.
