Harper-era rules on the news story

Harper’s former chief of staff and senior adviser to prime minister Justin Trudeau was found guilty in February of four counts of breach of trust.

The news of his conviction sparked a media frenzy as news broke that he had been found guilty of the same offence in 2014.

It was later revealed that the alleged breach was a story in a story that had been produced as part of the media company’s coverage of Trudeau.

The former chief adviser, Michael Scheer, is also accused of misleading the prime minister and his cabinet about the extent of his knowledge of Trudeau’s role in the Duffy settlement, which is being investigated by the RCMP.

“The former chief was not aware of any of these issues,” said the NDP MP Pat Martin, who led the charge against Scheer and other former Conservative and Liberal MPs in the House of Commons in a high-profile trial.

“He should not have been allowed to run the show.

He should have been held to account for the decisions he made.”

Martin’s parliamentary secretary, Mike Bostrom, told the House that it was “impossible” to prove that Scheer had been involved in the creation or production of the Duffy story.

The CBC’s Evan Solomon, who has been working on the story for the past two years, said it is not clear if Scheer’s involvement is the only way to prove the allegations of knowledge.

“I think it’s very possible that there is more than one way to establish this,” Solomon said.

“There are certainly a lot of things that are left out of this story that have to be addressed.”

Scheer is currently serving a four-year prison sentence in Nova Scotia.

His lawyer has argued that he was not involved in any of the alleged dealings and that he will be allowed to return to Canada once the trial is over.

Scheer was convicted in the fall of 2014 on three counts of misconduct in office and two of breach.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Scheeres lawyer has also argued that the charges are politically motivated.

The trial has seen a number of former Conservative MPs on the witness stand accuse the former prime minister of improper behaviour and of failing to act on his commitments to them and the party.

He denies the allegations and has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.

The Crown has called for the trial to be adjourned until February, while the case will be referred to a judge for sentencing.

A spokesman for Scheer said the matter was not discussed at the time of Scheers conviction and there is no indication of any other allegations that may have been raised.

Scheuer has denied all the allegations in the trial and has maintained his innocence.

In the early 2000s, Scheer worked as a campaign manager for then-Conservative leader Mike Harris and as an adviser to former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty.

He then worked for former Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff and became the senior adviser at the helm of the Conservative Party of Canada.

In 2013, Scheeber left the Conservative party after a long career in politics and the federal government of Canada and moved to Ottawa, becoming Harper’s deputy chief of state.

He returned to politics in 2019.

Scheyers lawyer argued that while Scheer never acted improperly, he had an interest in keeping the Harper government in power, particularly given the way it was dealing with the Duffy matter.

The federal Conservatives have previously maintained that there was no evidence of wrongdoing on his part and have denied any knowledge of the settlement.
