TEMPERATURES IN EDMONTON THIS MORNING WERE COLDER THAN THEY WERE IN THE SOUTH POLE. THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A SECOND. BUT THE BIG STORY RIGHT NOW IS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR. A BLIZZARD IS EXPECTED TO HIT TONIGHT. SOME AREAS COULD SEE UP TO 70 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW, WIND GUSTS UP TO 150 km/h, AND A POWERFUL STORM SURGE.

WE UNDERSTAND THERE IS A LOT OF FRUSTRATION OUT THERE. THERE IS A LOT OF FRUSTRATION IN THE CITY WITH THE SNOW AND WITH THE SIDEWALKS AND THE ROADS.>>Reporter: PLOUGHS ARE BROUGHT FROM THE WEST TO HELP AND CREWS ARE OUT TODAY TRYING TO CLEAR WHAT THEY COULD BEFORE THE PROVINCE GETS SLAMMED AGAIN. THE STREETS WERE PACKED WITH PEOPLE, TOO, RACING OUT TO GET LAST-MINUTE SUPPLIES TO RIDE OUT THE STORM. BREAD, MILK AND ESSENTIAL FOR EVERY BLIZZARD, STORM CHIPS.>>I PACK WHATEVER I CAN.

LET’S HEAD TO B.C., WHERE PEOPLE ARE STILL DIGGING OUT FROM THE RARE SNOWFALL. SO THIS WAS THE SCENE IN SURREY TODAY. THAT IS SOUTHEAST OF VANCOUVER. LOTS OF PEOPLE STILL CLEARING THEIR DRIVEWAYS AND SIDEWALKS. SOME AREAS ARE EXPECTING MORE SNOW, BUT THE BIG CONCERN NOW IS RAIN. UP TO 70 MILLIMETRES>>Reporter: ARGUMENTS BEGIN TUESDAY AND IT’S STILL UNKNOWN WHETHER NEW WITNESSES AND EVIDENCE WILL BE ADMITTED. DEMOCRATS ARE DEMANDING IT BE ALLOWED BASED PARTIALLY ON THE CLAIMS OF THIS MAN.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WAS GOING ON.>>Reporter: LEV PARNAS HAS BEEN INDICTED ON CAMPAIGN FRAUD CRIMES, THOUGH HE ONCE WORKED CLOSELY WITH THE PRESIDENT’S PERSONAL LAWYER RUDY GIULIANI N A SERIOUS OF TV INTERVIEWS PARNAS SAYS HE WAS PART OF THE ALLEGED PRESSURE CAMPAIGN TO UKRAINE TO LAUNCH AN INVESTIGATION INTO JOE BIDEN TO HELP THE RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN.>>THAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, FOR HIM TO STAY OUT IN FRONT OF THE FOUR YEARS.>>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT DISTANCED HIMSELF FROM PARNAS, SAYING THEY ONLY CROSSED PATHS AT A FUNDRAISER.>>President Donald Trump: I DON’T NEED THE HELP OF A MAN I NEVER MET BEFORE.>>Reporter: BUT PARNAS HAS GIVEN LAWMAKERS TEXT MESSAGES AND E-MAILS SHOWING HE HAS APPEARS TO BE DEEPLY INVOLVED IN THE AFFAIR, INCLUDING A PLOT TO FIRE THE FORMER AMBASSADOR TO THE UKRAINE. CLAIMS SO STARTLING, UKRAINE IS LAUNCHING A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.>>UKRAINE CANNOT IGNORE IT.>>Reporter: ADDING TO THE PRESIDENT’S ALREADY DIFFICULT DAY, A NONPARTISAN WATCHDOG ORGANIZATION SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE BROKE THE LAW ON AN ISSUE AT THE CORE OF IMPEACHMENT. IT SAYS IT WAS ILLEGAL FOR THE PRESIDENT TO PUT A HOLD ON HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN AID TO UKRAINE BECAUSE CONGRESS HAD ALREADY APPROVED IT.

IN THE MIDST OF ALL THE SOLEMN CEREMONY, THE SENATE ALSO MANAGED TO APPROVE THE NEW NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE AGREEMENT.>>THE UNITED STATES, MEXICO, CANADA AGREEMENT IS A MAJOR ACHIEVEMENT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IN A VERY BIG BIPARTISAN WIN FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>Adrienne: AND THE LEGISLATION PASSED EASY WIILY.

CANADA STILL NEEDS TO APPROVE THE DEAL.>>Andrew: A NEW VIRUS THAT CLAIMED LIVES IN CHINA HAS BEEN DETECTED IN JAPAN AND THAT HAS INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALISTS ON HIGH ALERT. BECAUSE THE CORONAVIRUS IS CONNECTED TO ANOTHER ILLNESS. SARS.>>Reporter: FURTHER CONFIRMATION. THE OUTBREAK OF A NEW PNEUMONIA IN CHINA IS ON THE MOVE. A MAN IN HIS 30s ARRIVED IN TOKYO WITH A COUGH AND HIGH FEVER. HE IS NOW RECOVERING. SO IS ANOTHER IN THAILAND. BOTH HAD VISITED WITH YUHAWUHAN, THE CITY CHINESE INVESTIGATORS CONFIRMED PEOPLE ARE SICK WITH THE VIRUS. TWO MEN IN THEIR 60s HAVE DIED. MOST, BUT NOT ALL OF THE PATIENTS SPENT TIME AT THIS SEAFOOD MARKET THAT SELLS LIVE AND DEAD ANIMALS. THEY’RE LIKELY THE SOURCE OF THE INFECTION. BUT THE QUESTION IS, CAN IT SPREAD FROM PERSON TO PERSON? SO FAR, NO ONE KNOWS.>>IT’S REALLY TOO EARLY TO BE CONFIDENT ABOUT WHAT THE DISEASE LOOKS LIKE.>>Reporter: INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY’RE DEALING WITH A NEW TYPE OF CORONAVIRUS, PLACING IT INTO THE SAME FAMILY AS ACUTE RESPIRATORY SYNDROME, OR SARS, THAT KILLED 800 PEOPLE, INCLUDING 44 CANADIANS ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO.>>IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE INITIAL CASES OF SARS, THE MORTALITY RATE WAS MUCH HIGHER, SO IT LOOKS LIKE THIS VIRUS IS LESS SEVERE.>>TOKYO, JAPAN — >>Reporter: INFECTIOUS DISEASE DOCTOR ISAAC BOGOCH CAN DETECT WHERE IT WILL BE NEXT. UNLIKE, SARS, IT’S SHARING INFORMATION. THAT IS ENABLING SCIENTISTS TO CREATE TESTS.>>IT’S IMPORTANT WE BE WARY OF INFECTIONS ON DISTANT LANDS.>>Reporter: IN JUST OVER A WEEK, LUNAR NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS WILL SEE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TRAVELLING WITHIN CHINA AND AROUND THE WORLD. HOSPITALS ARE ON ALERT AND THAT ANYONE ARRIVING FROM AN INFECTED COUNTRY, WHO IS EXPERIENCING FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS SHOULD NOTIFY AUTHORITIES IMMEDIATELY.>>Adrienne: THE FUNERAL FOR FORMER POLITICIAN AND LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR JOHN CROSBIE WAS HELD TODAY IN ST. JOHN’S. IN A CEREMONY BROADCAST ACROSS CANADA, NO SURPRISE THERE GIVEN HIS CAREER AND PERSONALITY. CROSBIE’S AFFECTIONS WERE ROOTED IN HIS HOME PROVINCE, BUT AT CHRIS O’NEILL-YATES TELLS US, HIS PUBLIC SERVICE WERE FELT NATIONWIDE.>>Reporter: PRIME MINISTERS PAST AND PRESENT, AS WELL AS PREMIERS. POLITICAL FRIENDS AND FOES. ALL JOINED THE CROSBIE FAMILY IN TRIBUTE TO A LEGENDARY NEWFOUNDLANDER AND PROUD CANADIAN.>>THERE WILL NOT BE ANOTHER POLITICIAN LIKE JOHN CROSBIE EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY.>>Reporter: WE HEARD A EULOGY FROM BRIAN MULRONEY, CROSBIE’S FRIEND, COLLEAGUE AND BOSS.>>IF A PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA IS LUCKY, AND I MEAN REALLY LUCKY, HE GETS TO HAVE A JOHN CROSBIE IN HIS CABINET. ONE. NOT TWO. [LAUGHTER] >>Reporter: FROM CROSBIE’S POLITICIAN SON, RECOGNITION FOR THE WOMAN AT THE HEART OF HIS DAD’S LIFE.>>MOM, IN THIS WORLD THERE COULD BE NO MORE POWERFUL EXAMPLE OF THE STRENGTH AND BEAUTY OF JOINING TWO PEOPLE THAN YOUR STRONG UNION OVER THE PAST 68 YEARS.>>Reporter: INSIDE, THE CATHEDRAL WAS FILLED TO CAPACITY. THE REASON WHY? SPOKEN CLEARLY OUTSIDE IT.>>IT WAS LIKE DEALING WITH A COMEDIAN. HE HAD IMPECCABLE TIMING. HE CAME PREPARED.>>Reporter: AND WASN’T AFRAID TO FIGHT FOR IT.>>ONE OF THE THINGS I’VE BEEN REFLECTING ON, I’M HERE WITH MY HUSBAND, HE WAS A CHAMPION OF LGBTQ RIGHTS. HE CHANGED. HE MADE AMENDMENTS TO THE CANADA HUMAN RIGHTS CODE TO MAKE SURE THERE WAS NO DISCRIMINATION BASED ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION IN THE FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE, THE MILITARY, RCMP.>>Reporter: THIS MAN KNEW CROSBIE FROM THE OLD DAYS. THAT’S A QUALITY JOHN CROSBIE EARNED THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY.>>HE STOOD WITH HIS FRIENDS WHEN TIMES WERE GOOD AND HE WAS STEADFAST AND TRUE WHEN TIMES WERE NOT.>>Reporter: THE MEASURE OF A LIFE WELL LIVED. OF A MAN WELL LOVED. CHRIS O’NEILL-YATES, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S.>>Andrew: WE HAVE MORE NEWS AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL”. A CBC “MARKETPLACE” INVESTIGATION GOES UNDER COVER INSIDE THE ANTI-VACCINATION MOVEMENT.>>Adrienne: AND THE CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP RACE IS UNDER WAY. WHO IS IN, WHO IS OUT AND WHO IS BEHIND THE SCENES? ROSIE IS HERE WITH “AT ISSUE”.>>Andrew: PLUS, WHAT COULD HARRY AND MEGHAN NEW LIFE IN CANADA COST>>Adrienne: WELCOME BACK. NEARLY HALF OF ALL CANADIANS HAVE AT LEAST SOME CONCERN ABOUT VACCINATION SAFETY. THAT IS ACCORDING TO THE RESEARCH FOUNDATION WELCOME GLOBAL MONITOR. FOR PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS THIS DOUBT IS CRITICAL TO PROTECTING PEOPLE, BUT THERE IS A WHOLE MOVEMENT PUSHING IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. TONIGHT, “MARKETPLACE” TAKES US INSIDE THE ANTI-VACCINE MOVEMENT.>>Reporter: WE’RE AT A MASSIVE ANTI-VAC RALLY IN WASHINGTON. WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST LEADERS.>>WHY WOULD WE TRUST THEM?>>Reporter: ANDREW WAKEFIELD, HIS BOGUS STUDY IN THE 90s FAMOUSLY LINKED VACCINE TO AUTISM. AND DEL BIGTREE, A CONTROVERSIAL FILMMAKER.>>IF YOU’RE TELLING YOUR CLIENT IT HAPPENED, YOU’RE A MORIN.>>Reporter: THE MOVEMENT GOES FAR BEYOND THIS RALLY. IT’S A MASSIVE MISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN ONLINE, CONTRIBUTING TO A CULTURE OF VACCINE HESITANCY. NOW A GLOBAL HEALTH CRISIS. NEARLY HALF OF CANADIANS HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT VACCINE SAFETY.>>PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD HAVE STOPPED VACCINATING BECAUSE OF THE RHETORIC ONLINE. PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY DYING. THE RISK OF VACCINATION ARE VERY SMALL. 1 IN A MILLION MAY GET A SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION TO THE VACCINE, BUT EVEN THAT IS TREATABLE.>>Reporter: WE WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE VIEWS TO GET PEOPLE ON SIDE. THAT’S WHY WE’RE UNDER COVER AT THIS ANTI-VAX EVENT.>>WE NEED TO BE MORE WILLING TO ENGAGE IN A MORE RADICAL WAY.>>Reporter: OTHERS REVEALED SOCIAL MEDIA STANDINGS TO AVOID BEING FLAGGED ON Facebook.>>WE NEED TO NOT PUT VACCINE IN THE NAME WHATSOEVER. YOU CAN’T SEARCH OUR NAME.>>Reporter: AT THE END OF THE EVENT, WE CATCH UP WITH DEL BIGTREE.>>THERE ARE MULTIPLE STUDIES WITH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS –>>NAME ONE.>>– HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS THAT SAID THERE IS NO LINK TO MHR AND AUTISM. — MMR AND AUTISM. ARE THEY UNTRUE?>>IT’S BAD SCIENCE. THAT’S WHAT I WOULD SAY. DON’T DO ANYTHING YOU’RE NOT SURE ABOUT.>>Reporter: DON’T DO ANYTHING. A COMMON ANTI-VAX TACTIC AND ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL.>>WE HAVE TO REMIND PEOPLE WHAT VACCINES ARE, WHY THEY’RE IMPORTANT AND HOW SAFE THEY ARE.>>Reporter: THE DOCTOR SAYS THAT’S WHY FACTS MATTER. ASHA TOMLINSON, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: AND YOU CAN WATCH ASHA’S FULL INVESTIGATION TOMORROW ON CBC’S “MARKETPLACE” AT 8:00 P.M. ON CBC TELEVISION AND CBC GEM.>>Andrew: TO OTHER STORIES MAKING NEWS ACROSS CANADA TONIGHT.>>WE ARE ALL OF THE VIEW DISMISSED THE APPEAL FOR THE UNANIMOUS REASONS OF THE COURT APPEAL FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA.>>Andrew: A BIG LEGAL VICTORY FOR SUPPORTERS OF THE TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE. IN A RARE RULING FROM THE BENCH, CANADA’S TOP COURT UNANIMOUSLY SHUT DOWN BRITISH COLUMBIA’S CASE FOR A LOW THAT WOULD HAVE EFFECTIVELY KILLED THE EXPANSION PROJECT. THIS MEANS THE B.C. COURT OF APPEAL OPINION WILL NOW STAND BARRING THE PROVINCE FROM ENACTING LAWS THAT WOULD AFFECT THE FEDERAL INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT.>>>IN ONTARIO, WHILE FAMILIES ARE BRACING FOR ONE-DAY TEACHER STRIKES THE PREMIER IS POINTING THE FINGER AT UNION LEADERS.>>I SUPPORT HARD-WORKING MEN AND WOMEN THAT TEACH OUR CHILDREN EVERY SINGLE DAY. I THINK THEY DON’T HAVE GOOD LEADERSHIP.>>Andrew: FORD IS BLAMING THEM FOR THE LABOUR DISPUTE GRIPPING THE ONTARIO EDUCATION SYSTEM. ALL OF THE MAJOR UNIONS ARE IN STATES OF ESCALATED JOB ACTION, RANGING FROM ROTATING STRIKES TO WORK-TO-RULE CAMPAIGNS. THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING, NEXT MONDAY AND TUESDAY, CLOSE TO A MILLION STUDENTS WILL LIKELY BE OUT OF CLASS.>>SO IT’S DELIGHTFUL WHEN YOUR MONEY SPENDS ALL THIS MONEY FOR A TRANSIT SYSTEM THAT DOESN’T WORK.>>Andrew: FRUSTRATION IN OTTAWA AS COMMUTERS DEALT WITH ANOTHER FAILURE ON THE LIGHT RAIL SYSTEM. A BROKEN OVERHEAD ELECTRICAL WIRE BROUGHT TRAINS TO A HALT THIS MORNING. THE CITY SAYS REPAIRS ARE UNDER WAY, BUT DISRUPTIONS COULD EXTEND INTO TOMORROW MORNING.>>Adrienne: UP NEXT, AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE ONE OF THE WEALTHIEST PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. QUÉBEC DAIRY MOGUL PLEASE LINO SAPUTO HAS LONG DENIED TIES TO THE MAFIA, BUT WE HAVE NEW POLICE EVIDENCE THAT SUGGESTS OTHERWISE.>>Andrew: AND LATER, PRINCE HARRY’S FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE>>Andrew: CANADIAN LINO SAPUTO, FOUNDER OF ONE OF THE TOP DAIRY PRODUCERS, HAS ALWAYS BANNED CONNECTION TO THE MAFIA, BUT NEVER SEEN DOCUMENTS OBTAINED BY “ENQUÊTE”. LONG TIME BOSS OF THE NEW YORK CRIME FAMILY, JOE BONANNO.>>Reporter: LINO SAPUTO PUBLISHED HIS AUTO BUY FRIDAY LAST FALL. JUST LIKE IN THE INTERVIEW WE AIRED 12 YEARS AGO. [Speaking French]>>Reporter: BUT “ENQUÊTE” REPORTER UNCOVERED DOCUMENTS USED BY THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE IN THE 80s. IT TURNED DOWN LINO SAPUTO’S REQUEST TO ARE A MILL — FOR A MILK DEALER LICENCE. ITS DECISION WAS BASED ON TIES BETWEEN SAPUTO AND JOE BONANNO. HE WAS THE LONG TIME HEAD OF MAFIA IN THE UNITED STATES. GENE EHMANN WAS A KEY WITNESS IN THE STATE CASE. FOR MORE THAN THREE YEARS IN THE 70s, HE WOULD TAKE BONANNO’S GARBAGE AND SEARCH IT.>>HE WAS THE MOST POWERFUL IN THE UNITED STATES AND HAD SPECIFIC INFLUENCE, WE LEARNED IN CANADA.>>Reporter: IN THE TRASH, POLICE FOUND RIPPED UP NOTES. THEY STUCK THEM TOGETHER AND FOUND THE NAME LINO SEVERAL TIMES. POLICE FOUND OUT LATER THEY REFERRED TO LINO SAPUTO.>>AND WE FOUND FROM PICKING UP THE NOTES HE HAD A HIDDEN FINANCIAL INTEREST IN SAPUTO CHEESE. AND THAT WAS A SECRET INTEREST THAT WAS HELD AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC.>>Reporter: IN BONANNO’S GARBAGE, POLICE ALSO FOUND SAPUTO COMPANY FINANCIAL RECORDS AND PROOF OF A CASH TRANSFER TO JOE BONANNO. IN 1980, THE RETIRED JUDGE WHO TURNED DOWN SAPUTO’S LICENCE REQUEST WROTE, JOSEPH BONANNO HAS HAD SIGNIFICANT INVOLVEMENT OVER SUBSTANTIAL PERIOD OF YEARS WITH SEVERAL CANADIAN CHEESE COMPANIES OWNED BY THE MEMBERS OF THE SAPUTO FAMILY AND BY LINO SAPUTO IN PARTICULAR. ALL OF THIS CONTRADICTS WHAT QUÉBEC’S RICHEST MAN WROTE IN HIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY.>>Reporter: SAPUTO REFUSED OUR REQUEST FOR INTERVIEW, BUT IN A WRITTEN STATEMENT, HIS LAWYER TOLD CBC MR. SAPUTO HAS NEVER HAD DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ANY CONNECTION TO ORGANIZED CRIME. MARIE-MAUDE DENIS, CBC NEWS, MONTREAL.>>Andrew: AND WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MORE NEWS ON “THE NATIONAL”.>>Adrienne: “AT ISSUE” IS NEXT ON THE CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP RACE. THE CANDIDATES WHO HAVE THROWN THEIR HAT INTO THE RING AND THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER BEHIND THE SCENES.>>>LATER, A SNOW BALL FIGHT HERE’S OTHER STORIES MAKING NEWS AROUND THE WORLD TONIGHT. THERE IT IS, MUCH NEEDED RAIN COMING DOWN IN AUSTRALIA. UP TO 15 MILLIMETRES FELL ACROSS PARTS OF THE STATE OF NEW SOUTH WALES AND VICTORIA WHERE FIREFIGHTERS ARE BATTLING DOZENS OF FIRES. MORE RAIN IS IN THE FORECAST, BUT OFFICIALS WARN IT COULD CAUSE FLASH FLOODING AS THE MASSIVE FIRE HAS BURNED THROUGH THE VEGETATION THAT WOULD NORMALLY SOAK UP THE WATER.>>>ANOTHER MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL MANAGER HAS STEPPED DOWN AS THE LEAGUE SIGN-STEALING SCANDAL CONTINUES TO GROW. THE NEW YORK METS ANNOUNCED TODAY THEY HAVE AGREED TO PART WAYS WITH CARLOS BELTRAN. THE FORMER OUTFIELDER WAS NAMED IN THE PERFORM THAT FOUND HOUSTON ASTROS STOLE PITCHING SIGNS IN 2017, THE YEAR THEY WON THE WORLD SERIES.>>Rosemary: THE DEADLINE IS SET AND THE RULES ANNOUNCED AND THE RACE FOR THE NEXT CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADER IS ON. THERE ARE THE CANDIDATES WE KNOW ARE RUNNING. THOSE WE EXPECT TO ANNOUNCE SOON, OR STILL CONSIDERING. AND THEN THERE IS THE ONE WE JUST DON’T KNOW. BUT THERE ARE ALSO CHANGES HAPPENING BEHIND THE SCENES. FORMER PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER RE-SIGNED FROM THE CONSERVATIVE BOARD.>>Rosemary: WHAT DOES THIS FIRST WEEK TELL US AND HOW WILL THE CONTEST BE DIFFERENT FROM THE LAST ONE? CHANTAL HÉBERT IS IN MONTREAL. ANDREW COYNE IN TORONTO. AND ALTHIA RAJ IN OTTAWA. I WANT TO START A LITTLE BIT ON THE RULES, NOT GET INTO THE DETAILS, BUT THE FACT THAT THE ENTRANCE FEE IS THE HIGHEST EVER. THAT THERE IS SOME THAT IS REFUNDABLE, SOME THAT IS NOT, THEY HAVE TO GET 3,000 SIGNATURES. THAT ALREADY CHANGES THE NATURE OF HOW THIS RACE IS GOING TO UNFOLD AND WE’VE ALREADY SEEN THAT THIS WEEK. CHANTAL?>>YES. IT’S CLEARLY MEANT TO PROVIDE DISINCENTIVE TO ANYONE WHO WOULD HAVE WANTED TO USE THE LEADERSHIP CAMPAIGN TO RAISE HIS OR HER PROFILE. THE BAR IS SET TOO HIGH ON ALL KINDS OF SCORES FOR THAT TO HAPPEN. THAT PROBABLY MEANS THAT IT WILL BE A SMALLER FIELD THAN THE HAPPY DOZEN OR SO THAT WE SAW LAST TIME.>>Rosemary: AND IS THAT A GOOD THING, ANDREW?>>WELL, IT’S NOT PARTICULARLY DEMOCRATIC THING. IT WILL EXCLUDE PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT BE ABLE TO RAISE MONEY OUT OF THE GATE. YOU HAVE THESE RULES THAT HAVE PROFOUND IMPLICATIONS FOR FAVOURING ONE CANDIDATE OVER ANOTHER TYPE, BASICALLY SET BY A BUNCH OF APPOINTEES SITTING IN A BACK ROOM. IT’S A HELL OF A WAY TO RUN A RAILROAD FRANKLY.>>IT’S CLEAR THERE IS A DESIRE, ESPECIALLY AMONG THOSE IN THE UPPER ECHELONS OF THE PARTY, TO ELECT, CHOOSE A LEADER QUICKLY THAT NAME RECOGNITION IN THE CASE THAT THE GOVERNMENT FALLS AND THERE IS AN ELECTION, THERE ISN’T A LOT OF GROUNDWORK TO DO. YOU CAN LOOK AT THE RULES AND SAY THEY’RE DESIGNED FOR THAT. THEY’RE PROGRESSIVE. YOU ONLY NEED A THOUSAND SUGGESTS FROM THE GET-GO. YOU ONLY NEED TO PUT IN $25,000 NEEDILY. THERE ARE DIFFERENT STEPS. THERE IS POTENTIAL YOU COULD GET NEW VOICES SHOULD KNOWS INDIVIDUALS WISH TO COME OUT OF THE WOOD WORK. YOU ALSO WANT TO BE ABLE TO CHOOSE A LEADER THAT CAN RAISE MONEY. IT’S SO FUNDAMENTAL, IF YOU CAN’T RAISE $300,000, FRANKLY, THAT’S NOT THAT MUCH MONEY. THE MAX IS ALMOST 1700 PER PERSON.>>I THINK THE BETTER RULE I WOULD HAVE LIKE TO SEE, IS YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE SUPPORT OF A NUMBER OF PEOPLE OF THE CAUCUS. THAT IS THE LEADER. THAT IS HE OR SHE IS ACCOUNTABLE TO. THIS BUSINESS HAVING RACES WHERE YOU HAVE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW MEMBERS THAT COME OUT OF NOWHERE AND DISAPPEAR THE DAY AFTER THEY VOTE, KEEPS SADDLING PARTIES WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE REPUGNANT TO THE CAUCUS.>>TWO THINGS. FIRST, SOMEONE WHO WOULD BE THE ASPIRING PRIME MINISTER MAY BE IN 18 MONTHS SHOULD BE SOMEONE WHO BRINGS ENOUGH EXPERIENCE, IT’S NOT AN ENTRY LEVEL POSITION. SECOND THING, I’M NOT SURE THE SYSTEM BRINGS REPUGNANT LEADERS. I SUSPECT THAT THE LIBERALS WOULD BEG TO DIFFER ON THE SCORE OF HAVING HAD JUSTIN TRUDEAU ELECTED AS LEADER AT THE TIME THEY WERE IN THIRD PLACE AND BEING PREDICTED TO BE GOING NOWHERE.>>WHAT IT DOES IN THAT CASE, YOU GET A LEADER TO IS ACCOUNTABLE TO NOBODY. YOU HAVE LEADERS LIKE ANDREW SCHEER, WHO BASICALLY GOT ELECTED BY A BUNCH OF DAIRY FARMERS FROM QUÉBEC WHO DID NOT HAVE THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY IN MIND. YOU HAD THE PROGRESSION OF THE PATRICK BROWN AND THE DOUG FORD IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY. YOU GET PEOPLE ELECTED BY A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO ATTACHMENT TO THE PARTY, WHO COME IN ON BASIS OF MASS MEMBERSHIP SALES. IT’S NOT THE WAY OTHER COUNTRIES RUN THEIR LEADERSHIP RACES. IT’S NOT ONE THAT STANDS THE TEST OF SCRUTINY.>>THAT IS NOT FAIR ABOUT ANDREW SCHEER. THE DAIRY FARMERS MAY HAVE INFLATED HIS STANDINGS EARLY ON, BUT HE WAS THE CONSENSUS CANDIDATE OF PEOPLE WHO WERE MEMBERS AT THE TIME. YOU DON’T GET TO THE 12TH ROUND BALLOT OR WHATEVER IT WAS IN 2017, WITHOUT HAVING PRETTY DEEP SUPPORT IN THE PARTY.>>Rosemary: THE CONSERVATIVES PUSHED HIM OVER THE EDGE, TOO. THIS IS ALL GREAT. YOU HAVE NO OPINIONS WHATSOEVER ABOUT THIS [LAUGHTER]. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RUNNING SO FAR, TWO NAMES OUT THERE, AND THE OTHER NAMES FLOATING AROUND FOR NOW. WHAT DOES THAT TELL US ABOUT WHAT KIND OF RACE THIS MIGHT BE?>>IT DOES NOT YET TELL US MUCH OF ANYTHING. BECAUSE WE ARE IN WHAT I WOULD CALL THE FAKE WAR PERIOD OF THE LEADERSHIP CAMPAIGN. WHERE EVERYONE AND HIS SISTER OR BROTHER UNDER THE COVER OF ANONYMITY WILL BE CLOSE TO SOMEONE AND TELL YOU SOMETHING THAT MAY BE IS NOT TRUE BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT REALLY CLOSE TO SOMEONE. AND WE, THE MEDIA, ARE ACTUALLY PEDALLING ALL — PEDDLING ALL THIS STUFF ABSENT WORDS. IF YOU READ ALL THE STORIES THAT CAME OUT, REGARDLESS WHAT THEY SAID, YOU WOULD THINK THE CAT ATE THE IT IS VERY INTERESTING THAT THERE IS ALREADY AN ATTACK AGAINST A CANDIDATE THAT HASN’T EVEN DECLARED.>>Rosemary: I WONDER WHAT THAT TELLS US. I WAS TOLD THE SAME THING ABOUT STEPHEN HARPER AND THE CONSERVATIVE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT HOW MUCH HE DISLIKES JEAN CHAREST, FOR PERSONAL REASONS, THAT OUR FRIEND PAUL WELLS THAT TALKED ABOUT. BUT ALSO FOR IDEALOGICAL REASONS. DOES THAT SHOW US THAT JEAN CHAREST IS A REAL THREAT OR STEPHEN HARPER IS OVERLY INTERESTED IN THE FUTURE OF THE PARTY? WHAT DOES THAT TELL US?>>TWO THINGS. THE FIRST, YES, JEAN CHAREST IS A REAL THREAT TO A NUMBER OF THE OTHER CANDIDATES. AND, YES, HE DOES REPRESENT IN THE EYE OF MANY — AND I SUSPECT THAT WOULD INCLUDE STEPHEN HARPER — A KIND OF REVERSE TAKEOVER BY THE FORMER PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE PARTY OF THE REINS OF POWER WITHIN THE PARTY. THAT BEING SAID, STEPHEN HARPER WOULD NOT BE THE FIRST FORMER LEADER TO FEEL THAT THE FRONT-RUNNER OR POSSIBLE FRONT-RUNNER IS NOT THE PERSON THAT IS BEST TO KEEP THE SOUL OF THE PARTY INTACT. AND I BRING YOU BACK TO ED BROAD BEND WHO CAMPAIGNED QUITE OPENLY FOR SOMEONE OTHER THOMAS MULCAIR.>>I’M TOLD THE EXPECTATION IS THAT HE IS PROBABLY NOT GOING TO CAMPAIGN ACTIVELY FOR A CANDIDATE. AND THERE IS NO HUGE FEELINGS OF WARMTH BETWEEN JEAN CHAREST AND STEPHEN HARPER, BUT WE’RE LIKELY GOING TO SEE A LEADERSHIP RACE WITH FOUR CABINET MINISTERS. INCLUDING PEOPLE THAT HE HAS WARM RELATIONSHIPS WITH, WHO ARE RUNNING FOR THE JOB.>>Rosemary: BUT IT’S ONE THING TO NOT CAMPAIGN FOR SOMEONE. IT’S ANOTHER THING TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST SOMEONE.>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW, BUT IT CAN HAPPEN THROUGH WHISPERS, THROUGH PEOPLE. LIKE THE FACT THAT WE EVEN KNOW THIS IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS PROBABLY NOT A GOOD SIGN.>>THEY WANT US TO TALK ABOUT IT.>>THAT’S FINE. THAT’S FINE.>>NOT UNPRECEDENTED.>>NO, IT’S NOT UNPRECEDENTED.>>IT WILL HAPPEN. IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. IT’S ALL PART OF A SUCCESSION BATTLE.>>Rosemary: ANDREW?>>IT WOULD BE REMARKABLE TO SEE HARPER PUBLIC CAMPAIGN. I DOUBT WE’LL SEE THAT. I CAN’T SEE WHY HE WOULD SEE JEAN CHAREST AS A THREAT. HE IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE PERSON. HIS RECORD IS NOT CONSERVATIVE. HE’S GOT MORE THAN A WHIF OF CORRUPTION. HE HAS THIS HUAWEI BUSINESS WHERE HE’S BEEN A CONSULTANT TO THE COMPANY THAT IS AT THE HEART OF THE BUSINESS THAT CHINA IS HOLDING OUR HOSTAGES. HE’S GOT SO MANY KNOCKS AGAINST HIM, TO SAY HE’S THE FRONT-RUNNER WOULD BE REALLY PUSHING IT.>>NOT RUNNING YET IN ANY — >>Rosemary: NO. NO. ONE QUICK ROUND ON RONA AMBROSE. WHAT DO YOU THINK, CHANTAL?>>I’VE HEARD BLACK AND WHITE ON THIS. BUT AT SOME POINT, IT IS CLEAR THAT SHE WILL BE — OR HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING AND IT SEEMS TO ME IF SHE HASN’T YET, IT’S BECAUSE SHE IS — OR IT HAS BEEN TEMPTED, BECAUSE OTHERWISE, IT’S EASY ENOUGH TO RULE YOURSELF OUT. IT ONLY TAKES SEVEN WORST ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA. TO RUN OR NOT TO RUN. SO I LOOKED AT HER SOCIAL MEDIA FEED. I NOTICED THAT THE LAST ENTRY SIX DAYS AGO IS ABOUT JOHN CROSBIE. NOT A BAD THING TO BE RIGHT NEXT TO SOMEONE WHO IS IDENTIFIED AS A MAJOR RED TORY WHATEVER YOU MAY BE THINKING ABOUT YOUR FUTURE.>>Rosemary: ANDREW.>>I THINK A CANDIDATE LIKE RONA AMBROSE IS WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR, SOMEBODY WITH CREDIBILITY IN THE WEST THAT CAN ALSO REACH OUT TO CENTRAL CANADA. WE HAVEN’T SEEN CANDIDATES THAT BRIDGE THAT DIVIDE. WHETHER RONA AMBROSE IS THE PERSON, THAT’S ANOTHER MATTER.>>SHE HAS A VERY NICE LIFE AT THE MOMENT AND SHE NOW NEEDS TO WEIGH WHETHER SHE WILL REGRET NOT JUMPING INTO THIS CONTEST. I THINK THAT’S WHY WE HAVE NOT HEARD FROM HER YET.
