Gomery Commission


Jump to: navigation, search

April 7, 2005

Lifting a publication ban is a good thing, especially when the whole country is waiting for real, as opposed to widely-rumoured, "explosive" political information. On April 7, Commissioner Gomery lifted most of his March 29 publication ban on the testimony of Mr. Brault after it was given, retaining a temporary ban on a number of pages peripherally relating to the criminal conspiracy charge against him. What also remains banned for now is the testimony of two others whose trials are coming up, until after they testify and their words can be similarly reviewed ex post facto. Until the ban, few outside Quebec seemed to care. Will the impact of the upcoming ban on the new testimony repeat the national anxiety? Film at 11. (Or, is that no film at 11?!!)
