CTV’s Craig Oliver admits knowing about sexual allegations against Liberal Senator

This quote from CTV’s Craig Oliver in a piece by Sun News’ David Akin about the lengthy history of sexual misconduct allegations against Liberal Senator Colin Kenny stuck out to me:

“We’ve heard these complaints before. Some of them have been public” (see here)

As Oliver admits in the above video, he had a very close friendship with then Liberal PM Pierre Trudeau including many Liberals in his cabinet – it was Trudeau who appointed Kenny to the Senate.

Did Oliver keep quiet about these sexual allegations against Kenny due to this friendship with Trudeau?

    You can be sure such information on a Conservative of any stripe, Senator, MP or MPP would not be kept under wraps as inside information not for the public to hear about. Another example of “we take care of and protect our own”.
    I don’t recall any such accusations against Kenny being made public, if they were they got brushed off pretty quick.

    In Sundays Question Period on CTV Craig Oliver mumbled some barely audible remark and when Fife the “KNIFE” asked The Red Star Tondra MacCharles to comment on Liberal Senator Kenny she said…”Do I Have TOO?” Then Fife said…”Moving right along”….2 minutes on the subject and onto Conservative bashing. Nothing asked of Gloria Gallaway or John Iverson. Move on…get this covered quickly.
    In David Akins article he forgets to mention the woman in Senators Kennys Tanning business he did on the side,who said..”She arrived at work to find him naked from the waist down. He told her to take off her shirt…then her pants…and ordered her to give him a B…job….which she did because she was an x stripper and needed to pay the rent on her new appt. because she was trying to turn her life around.Get out of the stripper business. This was actually up on the CBC website(trying to look balanced) for a few hours before it disappeared.This is the type of person Trudeau and the media are covering up for. Disgraceful to say the least.I don’t care what kind of work he did in the senate..it’s what he does out of the senate work that’s sickening.

    The media is full of lyin liberals just like ole Craig . . . this is why their ratings are in decline and the print realm is going extinct.

    Oliver should have retired a decade or more ago . . . why do these clowns just hang on . . . I could make a list of them as long as my arm . . . they contribute NOTHING to the debate and have not bee Objective for many decades.

      I’m betting he is hanging on for a Senate seat. He has been patient for the last 8 years doncha know.

    I AGREE WITH LIZ J’S COMMENT REF: THE LIBERAL MEDIA CABAL AND COVER UP OR UNDER REPORTING. STILL, SENATOR KENNY, REGARDLESS OF THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HIM HAS NOT BEEN CHARGED WITH ANY OFFENCE I AM AWARE OF AND A RESPONSIBLE JOURNALIST MUST NOT DIVULGE RUMORS FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION. TRUE, I DOUBT MR. OLIVER WOULD BE QUITE SO RESTRAINED IN REPORTING A SIMILAR SITUATION WERE A CONSERVATIVE WAS INVOLVED. I CONCLUDE MR. OLIVER, OF THE MEDIA PARTY WAS CORRECT IN KEEPING THESE ALLEGATIONS OUT OF THE PUBLIC DOMAIN. I FIND NO FAULT IN JOURNALIST OLIVER’S SILENCE IN THIS INSTANCE. THAT IS NOT TO SAY, AS LIZ SUGGESTS, HE WOULDN’T REVEAL THIS INNUENDO IF A CONSERVATIVE PUBLIC FIGURE IS INVOLVED.FURTHERMORE, MR. OLIVER AT 70 OR MORE STILL MAY HAVE OLD SCHOOL GRACE.

    Oh these people are just so boringly predictable.

    We all remember the ‘busty hooker’ story beaten to death, the cursing “allegations” in a PEI airport to say nothing of the bang, bang, bang on our heads re the Conservative Senators which at the time, no one was “charged” with anything either.

    Then shall we return to the gong show re PM Brian Mulroney…….horror of horrors for the media morons, day in and day out for months…….

    No the media are not doing their job when this “allegation” has been ignored!

  6. Mary Hines Says:

    Was Rob Ford charge with anything…. Did that stop of media party going after him? Who has been charged with anything in the Duffy scandal? They sure make panel discussions upon panel discussions actually blaming everyone with that that votes conservative!

  7. Brenda Says:

    I would like to know why the RCMP has NO OLD SCHOOL GRACE. The only time they speak up/or leak is if the person is a conservative.

    Craig Oliver is the leader of the Liberal loving media party.
    All Canadians are watching the destruction of Ontario with blessings of the Liberal media cheerleaders.
    Canadians should be very afraid of the manipulated message from the Media Party.

  9. Stan Says:

    Speaking of media bias in Canada, go search theCBC site for any mention of Obamacare.
    Down the memory hole….

  10. Ian Says:

    Isn’t that wonderful, Craig Oliver is close friends with all the Liberal Ministers at that time. I love his comment, “I can’t do that, but in the course of doing that…” So he would lobby Ministers on behalf of MPs. I think his ego got the best of him and his party affiliation overshadowed his professionalism (or lack thereof).
