Lametti's headquarters is not far from me. I don't know a lot about him but I hope he continues criminal reform. We'll see,I guess.

He is not against using the RCMP to avoid unwanted questions.

After starting to write this story, I was targeted by the RCMP for removal from a press conference by Justice Minister David Lametti. On Thursday, a Concordia University security guard, who I walked past to enter the room, came up to me 15 minutes later and asked for my press credentials. There were two dozen people in the room who didn’t have press credentials and the release for the event said nothing about needing them. The RCMP agent admitted that he asked Concordia security to approach me. He also said he was only there for the physical — not political — protection of the minister, but refused my suggestion that he and the Concordia security agents sit next/in front of me to ensure the minister’s physical safety.

What criminal reform do you expect the Liberals to pursue?

Look at the list of past Deputy Prime Ministers. Their success rate at winning party leadership is pretty low.

True, although there haven't been that many Deputy PMs in the past, and a lot of them came at the end of a government's time in office.

Freeland probably has a better chance of being a future leader, although there are no guarantees.
