The unanswered question at the heart of David Johnston’s foreign interference report

David Johnston says his decision to recommend against a public inquiry into foreign interference was based on “unprecedented” access to raw intelligence, Canadian national security officials and their political masters.

But virtually everyone asked to accept Johnston’s findings will not – and cannot – ever know exactly what evidence Johnston based that recommendation on.

This is just one lingering but vital unanswered question at the heart of Johnston’s 53-page report, released Tuesday, which took aim at the media reporting – chiefly by Global News and the Globe and Mail – that led Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to appoint Johnston as a special rapporteur on foreign interference. “I recognize this report, its conclusions, would be met with skepticism by some, especially by those who in good faith have worked to raise legitimate questions around these issues,” Johnston told reporters in Ottawa on Tuesday. “The challenge is this: what has allowed me to determine whether there has in fact been interference cannot be disclosed publicly.

A public review of classified intelligence simply cannot be done.” It’s an opinion likely to be challenged when Johnston appears before a House of Commons committee next month to discuss his report.

What Danielle Smith’s Alberta election win means for the rest of Canada
Danielle Smith took the podium Monday night to celebrate her victory in the Alberta election, she had a message for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.“Hopefully the prime minister and his caucus are watching tonight,” the newly re-elected premier told a raucous crowd of supporters in Calgary.Indeed, all eyes will be on Alberta as Smith begins her second term, which political watchers say will have implications not just for the province but for the rest of Canada as well.Alberta has always had a testy relationship with the federal government and even other provinces as it defends its profitable energy industry and other interests.But the past four years under the United Conservative Party and during the COVID-19 pandemic have seen Edmonton’s relations with Ottawa grow particularly tempestuous.The question now is whether a fresh start is on the horizon — though experts have doubts.“It’s gospel that the federal government ignores Alberta, and to a degree that is correct,” said Allan Tupper, a political science professor at the University of British Columbia who spent decades teaching in Alberta. “There’s a great deal of resentment.”“At the end of the day, (Smith) has to recognize that she has to deal with the federal government.
