Wow. I always figured his legacy was just destroying Manitoba through your decimation of Hydro
"The party of facilitated abuse against women"
Note quite the NDP scam you sold for 16 years is it?…
I assume you'll continue to sit in the leg doing nothing but collecting a cheque
Sadly @Brian_Pallister has decided to not make you accountable for anything including Crocus and your role in it, which is why we have trouble getting investors
1 of those complainants was Joëlle Saltel-Allard, Struthers's former press secretary. She said her boss's behaviour was well-known among staff, who nicknamed him "Minister Tickles" behind his back
More than a dozen former staffers, stakeholders and other MLAs told CBC that Struthers's touching was an open secret within the party during his time in office.
She described the culture at the legislature as a "broken system, where broken people were protected." Complaining, she said, would also have been seen as betraying the team.
Struthers said his intention was never to treat women as "anything other than equal & respected." "I have been fortunate to work with many strong, intelligent and talented women and have always valued these relationships."
Saltel-Allard, Struthers's former press secretary, said she tried speaking with co-workers about the minister's inappropriate touching, but they would usually say something like, "Oh, that's just Stan."
During the drive, Struthers started telling inappropriate and sexually suggestive stories, she said. "We were driving down the highway and he would put his hand on my thigh."
"The information that was relayed to me by the director, by my communications director, was basically to shut up and suck it up," Saltel-Allard said. "And that was the end of what I heard about it."
Balagus [Former NDP Chief of Staff], who resigned in 2012 and is now Ontario NDP chief of staff, told CBC he did not recall the complaint but remembered cautioning Struthers about "massaging and hugging" women.
"It was the beginning of making me feel insignificant & unimportant & really like my complaints didn't really matter because there was a bigger picture at hand, or there was a bigger goal at hand, & that was, you know, win the next election."
Karen Peters said the tickling and touching often occurred in front of others, including MLAs. She said she's angry the party apparently did little to try to stop it.
"I actually put my hand away to stop him sometimes, and then he would say, 'Oh, you're not one of those uptight people.' I would generally just move away or block him."
Obviously I have a bias, as I hate the MB NDP and how they have destroyed our province for decades to come. Reading this article made me furious.

Thanks to all the courageous women who came forward. Your bravery will save other women the torment you endured

There will be TREMENDOUS pressure on @Brian_Pallister to ENSURE that ALL STAFF associated with Manitoba Government have a safe work environment.

I cannot believe this happened, and was allowed to continue to happen

Any MB NDP MLAs AND BRASS who knew this was happening & did nothing are cowards


I believe in due process, & not in favor of lynch mobs based on allegations

In the law of the United States, attorney–client privilege or lawyer–client privilege is a "client's right privilege to refuse to disclose and to prevent any other person from disclosing confidential communications between the client and the attorney."

Client list does not seem to be privileged

Here are Requirements, Exceptions, Joint Defense Privilege, Penalties


When it does not apply

This is interesting because it mentions some roles Cohen has performed for Trump.

Can you perform these roles and be his lawyer at the same time, ensuring privilege?
