Watch NDP MP Murray Rankin completely contradict himself in the span of two questions within 30 seconds. The discussion is over whether Daniel Therrien, a lawyer and public servant for over 30 years, is deserving of his recent recommendation to become Privacy Commissioner.
Rankin starts around 3:38:
Murray Rankin: "Daniel Therrien does not have the neutrality, having advised this government for 30 years, to do the job. He is the independent watchdog... he is an absolute unknown in the privacy community."
Evan Solomon: "Don't you think public servants are objective?"
Ranking: "Oh absolutely! There is nothing about this individual as a public servant."
